Does anyone see a reason why having players play multiple investigators would be an issue?
My usual gaming group played 2 games last night, but we were short one of our usual players, and none of the occasionals showed up (leaving three of us.) I really enjoyed the game, but found both the keeper and the investigators a bit restricted because of the decreased action options available to them with a smaller number of investigators. I definitely think the game will be more fun with 4 (and even 3) investigators.
Since one of the regulars missed the game, I was going to run the story I was the keeper for with him (with the same queestion choices) before we all get togther next so he understands the rules and is up to speed next time we play.
However, have just one investigator seems extremely limited and would probably detract quite a bit from the enjoyability of the play, particularly for a first time player.
Does any one see any potential issues with having players play multiple investigators? Say each player play 2 investigators in a 3 person game, or have the one player play three or four in a four person game?
I don't see much of an issue on the surface, as the investigators are free to discuss strategy with each other and decide turn order normally (puzzles aside)
