    Wrong Language on Map in the Box

    Raghendo, I would return it and explain the situation...they want your future business, so it's in their interest to make it right. Cheers, Joe
  2. It's nice, during this Yuletide, to sit back with a lovely glass of egg nog and read the exploits of Julia's Investigators.
  3. alexbob: Something I've done to make them more playable is to expend the Sanity Cost, only if they, in fact, work. Either way, you're still dedicating a hand or two to the effort.

    Arkham nights promo trading?

    Nate, My girlfriend and I attended back in 2011 so I have an extra Daoloth for Elder Sign and the Hastur for AH. You're welcome to them if I can find them as I converted my extra bedroom to a Game Room earlier this year. Send me a note here or over at BGG to keep it fresh on my mind. Cheers, Joe

    Some advice to enchant the play

    Letanir, Julia has provided some excellent suggestions, and I've used one element when hosting multiple players: Start the game with one encounter. Also, if you get your hands on Kingsport, one of the Guardians greatly encourage the Investigators to take encounters at stable locations. Cheers, Joe
  9. Good for you, my friend! All the best in Arkham. Ciao, Joe

    Returning to Arkham

    Now, that's a way to end the run... The Arkham Horror Event goes to Italy, with Julia capturing the Gold!

    How are monsters drawn?

    Quitch, I'm unaware of any rules, though the FAQ may make a point of answering this one. Otherwise, draw and place...you should never draw, check it out and then place on a gate. Cheers, Joe
  12. I think the OP means "Evade" - and yes, the Investigator is Cursed, due to failing to defeat it. As in most cases, each word matters a great deal when determining how to interpret it correctly. Cheers, Joe

    lolwhut?

    FatherTurin, I'm with you ~ I've been a frequent member out here and over at the Arkham Horror forum for more than seven years, but the tenor of the conversations around the site, coupled with FFG's lackadaisical attitude toward some of its holdings has made it less exciting to be here, as opposed to BGG's site...which always proves to be more vibrant. Interesting. Cheers, Joe

    Video Review

    Long-time contributor, just letting my fellow Arkhamaniacs know we've recently posted our first in a series of video reviews, starting with of course, my favorite board game of all time... https://www.boardgamegeek.com/video/92993/arkham-horror/straight-talk-wkate-professor Cheers, Joe

    Julia, True...true. But I think we're more like Guardians, aren't we? Ciao, Joe

    Video Review

    Tibs, Great memory...yes, she was 8 or 9 when I introduced her to the game. What she enjoyed when she was younger has certainly changed. As Julia mentioned, we're heading home after a 7-day, 5-college trip driving first to Savannah, GA, and then north...we finished our trip in NY, visiting NYU and taking-in a Broadway show, Jersey Boys. Yes, we've been out here awhile, my friends. Cheers, Joe

    To Forge a Realm

    This is my first time on this Forum...I'm a regular over at Arkham Horror and Elder Sign, but am curious about Kingsburg and its Expansion. Will the Expansion be available again? Cheers, Joe
  20. You're such a charmer, Tibs!
  21. Ahhh, that would do it.
  22. Tibs, It's an interesting piece of analysis, and while I don't question the assumptions regarding forfeitures, I've never, in a combined total of over 200 ES and AH games, forfeited a game...curious.

    Difficulty Level

    Shadin, I'm a player who almost exclusively interacts with Arkham Horror as a solo player, typically playing four Investigators, with every expansion mixed into the madness. A more comprehensive write-up is over at BGG, but for the first four turns only Mythos Cards with Gate openings in Arkham take effect. It allows the Investigators to garner a few Clue tokens and have a few encounters around town before all hell breaks loose and it's a mad dash to the Other Worlds. Cheers, Joe
