I just played the game for the first time and really enjoyed it. However, I thought some of the components were either unuseful or I wasn't using them properly. The Investigator Item cards seemed really under used. In fact, I only ever used what I started with and never earned more. So I guess my question is, When do you get the item cards? Is it only when the encounter cards or the like state so? Because that didn't happen too often. My girlfriend thought that we should draw them on every location, but I didn't see that anywhere.
Any Help would be great.
