Hi there!

 

Assuming you want to play with unrevealed, facedown gates full of abominable surprise, how do you handle moving gates?

Is it possible at all without a separate player as a "game master"?

Not really. I personally abandoned hidden gates long ago, specifically, when Dunwich was released.

Alternately, you could continue playing facedown gates, noting that a gate doesn't inherit its properties until it's revealed. It won't be a moving gate until an investigator enter it, and then it might move (thus becoming non-sealable) before the investigator returns.

That is what I do.   The  investigator destablises it when he passes through it, I figure.

What do you do with devouring gates and the ones that add doom tokens (the name just fell out of my mind)?

Yeah, I thought that with the Lurker gates it would be impossible to play them "face-down".

The gate's ability on triggers if it opens on an investigator and since when a gate opens on an investigator they immediately go through it there's no issue.  The only problem you run into with playing LatT gates face down is the movers don't move until they're flipped over.

Excellent point :P

Of course. How could I miss that?
