Hello everyone! :-)
I just wanted to double check something. At first I thought my partner and I had beat our game but looking back, I am having my doubts. Perhaps you can assist in helping resolve this?
The doom token was at 1. There are no more mythos cards in the mythos deck. Before we are on the mythos phase, my encounter turn is over, then my partner is attempting to close a gate and solve Azathoths 3rd mystery.
The gate gets closed successfully, two clues spent, and an eldritch token is placed on the mystery card. Now the mythos phase comes up. There are no more cards to draw.
I am thinking we lost because it wasn't the end of the mythos phase since it couldn't really begin, or am I misinterpreting that? Is that a win?
I have seen another person on this forum try to clarify exactly what consists of a win regarding the mythos deck and mysteries, but for some reason I just wasn't getting what they were trying to say. All I know is that if you can't draw another mythos card when you need to, you lose. If you solve 3 mysteries before the AO wakes up, you win. In the rare instances where you may lose and win, you win.
