  1. Ahhh, finally a new Cthulhu article! Fiona Day seems pretty darn good! Is that some sort of 'code-breaking' machine? I really appreciate the use of the recently rare Dreamer subtype! Looking forward to seeing what the other Cultists from The Sleeper Below are up to in the next article! Hoping The Sleeper Below is available at GenCon?!
  2. It's been well over a month since a new Cthulhu article has been published! Hello FFG, we're are due and itching for a second 'The Sleeper Below' spoiler/teaser! Considering it may be released next month the time is now to stir up some buzz?
  3. I've been itching for a follow up article! It's tough to see article after article after article after article for the other LCGs when Call of Cthulhu gets maybe 1 for every 20 if we're lucky! It seemed there was a lot more hype generated for the Syndicate box?
  4. Can Naomi O'Bannion use her ability on a Tactic if Snow Graves is attached to the discard in question?
  5. You guys really seem to be doing this up right! Others stores wanting to get LCGs going should take note! Good luck!
  6. Delayed for a Jan 30th release! Did 'Denizens' get snowed in?!
  7. Thursday can't come soon enough! Just got my Greyjoy house cards to use as domains to tide me over and then Marius's card gets spoiled and I'm Jonesin' all over again! The Yog box and it's Yithians really had me anticipating something special only to be disappointed with the Yithian discard focus. Don't get me wrong, overall I like what the Key and the Gate brought to the game. Terror in Venice I expected to be beautifully themed and it was with some nice meta nuggets included. I have a feeling Denizens will be unprecedented for what it will do as a faction-centered deluxe box.
  8. As I said and I don't deny, the core rule book is inadequate. Regardless of if a game does or does not have a well thought out and executed rule book, intuitive core mechanics are paramount. Of course we don't want to depend solely upon how much sense a game makes just by symbols and card text, I don't believe I suggested this and if I did I apologize. With any game of this sophistication there will be facets that are not properly explained in the initial rules, subsequent faqs and on line videos. That's where the game's community comes in. We've got a pretty good community around here. I'm not sure the title of this topic serves it well though.
  9. The rule booklet that accompanies the core set definitely has it's shortcomings. I think the game would benefit greatly if a new rule book were printed with corrections and additions. Just the inclusion of a timing flow chart and card errata would be a big improvement. I agree Jhaelen, including two sets of domain cards in the Core Set seems like a no-brainer! With that being said, the title of this topic 'Award for most confusing rules game' is misleading and could possibly scare away future players that are poking around trying to get a feel for the game and community. So if you are one of those Cthulhu curious individuals, I've been playing this game for years at a fairly high level and many people would agree that this game is one of the most intuitive card games available. More intuitive than most if not all of the other LCGs. As you can see there are plenty of experienced and friendly players that are happy to answer questions and provide guidance. So what are you waiting for? Dive in!
  10. The Conspiracy tourney at Worlds included a story deck comprised solely of Conspiracies. The games were a bit wacky with not all the players being intimately familiar with their effects and sometimes big swings when the effects were enacted! I for one really enjoyed the format and as I recall a good number of the participants did as well. Our local group has participated in a conspiracy themed league with great success. We even created our own Conspiracy card that was auto in play as one of the three stories at the start of the match.
  11. The 'Upcoming' page indicates Jan 23.
  12. I'm really looking forward to the appearance of Danny O'Bannion in Denizens! His daughter has been spoiled already. With the Blackwood Sr. and Jr. tandem out and about I think the chances are strong to see this crime lord in the set? A Polar theme was not appropriate to a strictly Venice-themed set so we could see some more. It would have been very nice to see Ithaqua in the Yog or M.U. box considering their considerable Polar theme! There are still a number of Ancient Ones missing from the pantheon. It would be a shame if they do not rend the veil before we see the end! Chaugnar Faugn Ithaqua Hypnos Abhoth Eihort Yeb- Nug's twin. Nyarlathotep- Yes we have him already but much of his aspect deals with his many various and unique manifestations. Daoloth Rhan-Tegoth Yibb-Tstll Bugg-Shash Quachil Uttaus
  13. I feel ya' Sully! After reading that the reprint of Secrets of Arkham went to '3of' I also wondered if the Core which was also on the reprint schedule could receive the same treatment but in the end I came to the same conclusion as Toqtamish, FFG is fine with status quo and prefers to apply their resources elsewhere. There would have to be some revamping of the insert and repricing etc. I also wonder how many folks would still buy a core as a whim to try something new if the initial investment was increased by so much?
  14. Drop the mulligan and do best of 3. I don't hate the idea of a sideboard but I feel the idea of 2X 30min matches is a less eloquent solution than 3X total 1hr matches - mulligan.
