    Statistics / submit your plays

    Thank you! I have not played 2E for many years, as other mythos games wound up on my table more frequently. While 3E looks different, the scope of a City is one I am happy to revisit. I am pretty excited as a cycle is complete... I am all excited for the game that got me back to the table! I did not think to look at the AH 2E board 🙃

    I am really enjoying this tool. Been hooked on the game lately and am really enjoying looking at the data when picking scenarios and investigators. I hope you can build one for Arkham Horror Third Edition! I am a huge Excel geek... I would be happy to help!
  3. We were eliminated on our play-through of this one, but liked what it did a lot! maybe next weekend...

    when will there be a reprint of the expansions?

    I just checked (as I paid a bit more than MSRP for Dark Pharaoh), and this is not a 100% indicator of plans, but all Arkham 2E except for Dice are no longer in the Awaiting Reprint section.

    What does this offer?

    While not granting the most playtime for us, this is a great intro to the basic mechanics in the Arkham Files. I love the game and have all the expansions. My only complaint is that the story elements can be glossed over unless you mentally zoom in on them... it is too easy to make it into a Yahtzee puzzle without the theme in the chasing of the Elder Signs.

    Announced: Arkham Horror Third Edition

    I will certainly be giving this a try... as FFG has yet to really miss with any of the systems they have attached to the Arkham Files. Arkham Horror 2.0 awakened my sleeping tabletop gamer after decades away in video games, and all the later products have always built on the lore, and refined the mechanisms of the games before them. They have been making games in Lovecraft's worlds before it was public domain, and few other games come close (I have and enjoy Fate of the Elder Gods, Pandemic Cthulhu, and Cthulhu Realms... but the Arkham Files have the narrative developed.) My favorites in order are: Mansions of Madness (both 1 and 2!) Arkham LCG Eldritch Horror Elder Sign Arkham Horror Call of Cthulhu LCG/CCG. I am a bit kicking myself as I never got the revised Curse of the Dark Pharaoh, and hoping to find one at an FLGS before too long.

    What heros are you playing thru the app with?

    Hi all, I am very excited to try the app tonight. I am going to use two heroes, base set only. I am not particularly good at this type of game (Descent app has humbled me after initially falling in love with the tutorial.) I have fared better with Mansions of Madness, but that is a far different beast as it really is not tactical. Any suggestions for me as to which two characters to use, or any I should not even consider? I do not want to steamroll the imperials, but also want a fighting chance to succeed on a few missions. Thank you!

    Found a new copy at FLGS, missing component.

    Phew! And it shipped. This weekend we're gonna party like it's 1986!

    How well does the app scale with # of heroes?

    Two is the minimum heroes in all current campaigns and also in the Delve. Solo, you would need to run two heroes. You lose the bonus attack if you play three or four.
  10. Good morning, Anyone gotten replacement bits for this game since the Asmodee management came to be? I have gotten a broken Imperial Assault figure, and a misprinted LCG card replaced with no issue. I opened a ticket as one of my helicoptors came with no blue rotors (top piece you snap to base.) I am more concerned as this seems to be oop.

    Where the fluffin muffins are the expantions?

    And all POD material for Warhammer Quest Card Game, Space Hulk, and Talisman now "Not Available." I never got this, as I have StarCraft and rarely got that to the table, but am sad to see the writing on the wall.

    In App Purchases Across Platforms??

    If they have a user log-in, tied to an account on an FFG platform, it is possible (not that it will necessarily happen.) I play Star Realms and Cthulhu Realms, and on those, I created an account with my email. I can play on iOs, Android, and steam, and by logging in I click that "I confirm I am the owner of this account" and it unlocks paid dlc across platforms. It is the exception to the norm though, usually you have to buy separately on each. This is the case with FFG's Elder Sign Omens, I have the base app on both and am deciding where to buy the add-ons as I am only willing to buy once. We will have to wait for them to release anything I suppose, I personally will likely buy on iOs as that is my tablet and preferred virtual keeper.
  13. Nice Avatar huud! We play two investigators. We have been using the app to select the monster, and if it is the same monster to test against for both investigators, we roll for the single test provided. Not sure if it is correct, but if we selected who took the test, it seems we could cheat the system and pick the best investigator suited for the tests.

    Should you buy this game?

    Eldritch plays very much like Arkham Horror, though on a global scale. MOM is not as tactical as something like FFG's Descent or Imperial assault, but you have a similar scale being your investigators and their immediate surroundings, and elements for gamers that enjoy RPGs. I believe Mansions tells the best story. Arkham LCG will be fun, I watched a playthrough of the game on youtube and will preorder. It is a card game, so mechanically very different.

    Doors vs doorways for range

    Hi Julia, Thank you! We all know HP Lovecraft had a curiosity about odd angles. As for the doors, I do not have the game in front of me... Do the guns say they may be fired through doors on the cards? we have yet to have a gun, only 2X4, brass knuckles, and a crowbar. Only range came up during abilities and monsters... you said you can shoot through a door, but that contradicts the rest of your explanation. Thank you for the clarification!
