I received the King in Yellow Expansion as a Christmas present. I haven’t got any other expansions nor played them, so it is all new for me. I just wonder which ”play style” you recommend for the first play with the expansion.
Our group aren’t really experienced Arkham Horror players, only played it a few times (5-10 times), but generally think the base game is a little too easy. My own thought is to play with Permanent Performance style (just shuffle in the cards) and ”The Herald” variant described in the rule book with a random GOO chosen.
The thought behind this is I want to try out the new stuff in the expansion, but playing with touring performance style seems to shorten the game making it more of a game to beef up for the fight (if we are not facing Azathoth). My general thought is that winning by closing gates is more rewarding.
What do you recommend for the first game with the expansion?
