Only recently have people been coming up with problems about running out of Clues. I wonder if it's us players or the expanding game.
I collect FFG's Call of Cthulhu "Living Card Game" (and CCG before it was replaced) because the artists they use are INCREDIBLE, and most of Arkham Horror's artwork came from a CoC card first. In the LCG "Core Set" is a sheet of brown tokens with a Magnifying Glass (Success) on one side, and a Skull (Wound) on the other. I think there's 36 of them. Even with all that Clue-age, I've never come CLOSE to "running out" (even with Patrice), so I don't know what I'm not doing that everyone else is.
THERE IS NO FOOD ALLOWED ANYWHERE NEAR MY GAME! You wanna eat? You go into the kitchen and call your turn from there if need be! Before you come back, your hands will be washed and dried! Any meals are eaten collectively in the living room. (Arkham Horror is a great PARTY game.) There are enough trays and wall furniture around my table to hold drinks, since THERE ARE NO DRINKS ALLOWED ON THE GAME TABLE! Violators will be--AND HAVE BEEN--devoured.
Fascist? Perhaps. Game in excellent condition? **** straight.
Lucky me we eat and drink around my board no damage except from when the roof was leaking.
