The girlfriend and I have taken Arkham Horror on holiday and managed to defeat Azathoth on just our second attempt.
Two things perplexed us though (and may have led to our victory if I interpretted the rules wrongly!).
1. Joe Diamond. My reading of his special ability is that if he fails a standard role and then decides to spend a clue token, he gets TWO extra rolls. But this seems to contradict the example of spending clue tokens on skill checks given on page 13 of my rulebook. This example imagines Joe failing a Lore (-1)  check, because on his standard skil check he rolls only two successes. He then spends a clue token, and throws a 3 - another failure. He therefore spends a further clue token and gets a 6 - finally reaching the total of three successful rolls he needs. But why does he need to spend the second clue token? By spending the first token, my reading of his special ability is that this would give him two further rolls, not just one.
2. "Undead". What does the term "Undead" mean on the back of various monsters? It isn't listed in the "Monster Special Abilities" section on page 24 of my rulebook (whereas Ambush/Nightmarish/Endless etc all are mentioned). I'm assuming that certain cards (that I'm yet to come across) impact upon "Undead" monsters in some ways - but otherwise there is no automatic impact on combat?
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
