I've seen this proposed on BGG. Does anyone play like that? Instead of starting the game at the Mythos phase, why not start it  at the Arkham Encounters phase? Makes sense thematically, I think. All investigators begin their adventure at a certain location for a reason. Why not  let them have an encounter on Turn 0? Some investigators will have a clear advantage over others, obviously(say, the Photographer).

I have also seen this proposed here before, I see no reason not to if you want.

Well, thematically, I see the investigators getting involved BECAUSE of the first mythos. They're just going through their standard routines until, all of a sudden, weird things start happening and they begin investigating.
