We've played this game twice now, and each time I've played the keeper. The first time we played Fall of the House of Lynch with two investigators, and the second game was Blood Ties with three investigators. Each time we've played, I have ground the investigators into a fine paste and smeared their moist extracts on crackers to make a delicious snack. The point is, I have creamed them, and I fear that they are losing hope that there is a way for them to win. Granted, we have only played two times, but I fear they may abandon this game as they did Descent, which we played only once. To be fair, however, we used to lose Arkham Horror every time we played too, but eventually got pretty good at it, so it may be a practice thing.
I don't know if I need to be nicer as the keeper; I don't feel that I've been particularly mean. I rarely, if ever, play trauma cards on them, and hardly ever play mythos cards either. Mostly I depend on my action cards.
Has anyone else encountered this phenomenon? If so, have you made any changes, or have your investigators simply improved their ability to beat you? Do you follow any house rules?
Any ideas on how to help are sure appreciated!
