Quick question. Since I've opened AH, I've been playing a few two-player games with my bro. Now, we're newbies and all, but we seem to have problems sealing all the gates before the Great Old One awakens. Now, I don't know if we're just doing something wrong, or the game is just hard with 2 people, but I realize we'll automatically lose against GOO like Azathoth.
There's nothing wrong. You will have trouble sealing gates with 2 players. One of my games lasts about 15 or so turns. That means each investigator has 15 turns to do his stuff. With two players, that's 30 investigator turns. It will take 18 turns just to go through six gates. It will take 30 turns just to gather enough clue tokens. Of course, other things like Tomes, beginning clues and Spells may shorten some of these, but not always. Then you may be using/wasting them on fighting monsters.
Sealing with 2 can be done, but it's not easy. Your best chance is with Azathoth because he doesn't interfere with you much and he has 14 Doom Tokens. Sometimes you can seal a gate or three and close the rest. Still it's tough.

So far, we barely beat Shub-Niggurath and Yig, but lost against Nyarlhotep because of the fact his modifier was so low I couldn't roll. Any help on my gate problem/question?
Play 2 investigators each. And remember there are 3 victory conditions. Sealing's not the only one.
