  1. So playmat is a yes. Scenario 2 of the Guardians of the Abyss has been true since they announced it. Doesn't look like the first scenario that was at Gencon will be there. What about the dividers? Also why are they packing 2 of the class dividers and not a full set of classes? Seems like an super awkward way to release it.
  2. I can’t speak with 100% but even at gencon the alt art promos were pack in the scenario that you got. If they run it the same you get the scenario as part of your promo bag when you check in. That’s how it’s been in prior years. Only things like the Card concil cards were passed ou after the fact cause they needed to be designed and printed first.
  3. There is usually a schedule of events. This is normally things like the RPGs and play with the designer sessions. Last year they scheduled the LoL times since the epic multiplayer version is timed I don’t know if this year they will do the same with the scenario. Other unique events will be scheduled like the 16 player Eldritch Horror and maybe the Arkham Horror Board game 16 player version. The rest of the weekend is open play and demos.
  4. The extra unlisted swag that seems to add to the cost is that it looks like we are getting shirts for this year. Getting my ticket it asked for shirt size, which hasn't happened since 2012 when they had shirts during that event too.
  5. Great summary, I got to play the first quest only so far. It sounds like, I'll enjoy my time in the village.
  6. Taking a closer look at some of the extra promos that were set out since the card box didn't ship in time, I noticed something odd. I personally grabbed "The Dark God" for Elder Sign, as I thought I had it and it looked a little familiar but at the same time not. Getting it home with my set the Dark God I got back in 2014 has different art on it, the one printed was using the art off Yibb-Tstll instead. The bonus promo is also missing the Arkham Nights years on the back too. Were the others printed correctly? I'm curious
  7. I remember the raffles. It would also be good to have more than 1 table of each preview expansion running. Elder Sign is semi quick but Eldritch and Mansions are not short games. I can understand Mansions this year as the plan was that we could all get Streets on our own but the other two should of had 2 tables of each going at the very least.
  8. I'm going to build a deck or two this week, not sure who yet. I'm curious to see what investigators everyone are planning to bring along.
  9. I'll check what extras I have still lurking in the shadows.
  10. For the main Arkham Horror board, is it the revised board? I have a buddy looking for the lighter tone revised board to replace his original dark board.
  11. That's pretty exciting, last year reminded me of what it was like when I first started to go.
  12. A thought struck me, while I'm excited to be able to get Streets of Arkham early it is app driven and without the app getting updated early it's not pointless. I'll hope that's not going to be an oversight.
  13. My group might be, however it will depend on what other events are going on during Arkham Nights
  14. It's a hard call, last year was the Arkham Horror LCG launch so we all bought our cores, then tore into them using the sample decks and what we could cobble together. The Call of Cthulhu LCG was very much build your own, so Arkham Horror might follow that format. I do know for the GenCon event they did not supply decks.
  15. The GenCon Labyrinth of Lunacy packs came with extended alternate art Leo De Luca cards. I'm curious to know if they will be included in the Arkham Nights packs too.
  16. Now my question is will the Alt Art Leo cards be in the Arkham Nights Labyrinth of Lunacy decks...
  17. I was looking at your dates from before, and it's clear this is the shortest. Last time it was the year they delayed the event until November to align with Eldritch Horror being released. My group is about 6 hours away so it's still a reasonable drive for us. I'd wish they would go back to the 3 day process again, normally we hang around on Sunday just to get a few more games in before heading back.
  18. The short notice is something I've wished we got away from, while this is not a massive event like Worlds it should still have a long enough notice for those who travel to have time to arrange matters. I'm holding out judgement on the increase price until we see what is included into the swag bag. If it's a scenario again like last year it might help justify it. I would like more acrylics like the health and sanity from last year, maybe resources, doom tokens. Best I can wish for is an official acrylic chaos token set. Until I know what we are getting for attending I'm going to hope it's going to make sense in the end.
  19. Now the mad dash to secure time off and travel arrangements begins!
  20. Two other Arkham Horror announcements rolled by got me excited, but then when it wasn't Arkham Nights the dread set back in. I hope this delay doesn't hurt the turn out too badly this year, it was nice seeing it sell out last year, despite it was driven by the pre-release.
  21. I would think they will continue since the card game has exploded since last year. I was expecting it earlier this week to be in line with prior years, but don't have much hope for today as it's Force Friday.
  22. You have the 16 card deck for the city location encounters. There is a 20 card Dream-Quest deck that works like the expedition deck. (4 different backs which are the 4 wilderness locations) Then the standard 4 encounter decks (Americas/Europe/Asia/General) all get 4 new cards. It also adds 6 otherworld encounter cards. 7 clue and 3 gate tokens for the sideboard. I hope that helps LeRoux.
  23. Glad you had a good time too. Darrell was the unfortunate investigator that suffered in my Perlude card so I didn't get to see him in action. He'll be selected in the next round for sure. You have the dreamlands mechanics correct, easy to get there but leaving is a tad tougher Each space containing a Dream Portal is connected by a Local Path to the space that corresponds to that token. Spaces connected by Local paths are so close to eachother that moving between them does not reuire an action.
  24. Today's Dreamlands adventure. *Spoiler light* Prelude- Lurker Among Us.... Ancient One- Hypnos Investigators- Carolyn Fern, Luke Robinson, Vincent Lee, Kate Winthrop Like most of the Arkham Files games for me, the first two rounds were mixed blessings. By the second mythos phase I had turned down three offers to gain a dark pact, one of which cost everyone 2 sanity and 2 health. First mystery was all about getting gates managed, Luke was up to bat and didn't disappoint. With Carolyn out managing sanity for everyone her Dream Journal was very helpful keeping clues out on the board. Second mystery was a little more daunting and the team still managed to knock it out in 4 turns. Last mystery spawned one of Hypnos special encounter decks and was only tricky due to the fact that clues needed to be encountered on city locations. While there were no shortage for clues they all seemed to be anywhere but city spaces. Overall the sideboard was used frequently, I found myself there more often than not. Several fun encounters gave some extra options if Hypnos was the ancient one. Each sideboard expansion has improved upon the last and I think Dreamlands will be finding ways to come out even if it means I'm selecting my ancient one or prelude card directly.
  25. I'm delving into the Dreamlands tonight. Hopefully get a few plays over the weekend since both MoM2 and AH:LCG are getting expansions next week.
