    Arkham Nights 2018 Dates

    You do understand that the first thing MGlas1 said is that he agrees with me right? Please show me where I have at any time stated that you have said that a “full Invocation event” is happening. What I am saying is that NO Invocation event is happening. You have said a “modified Invocation” was happening without saying what that meant. You then said they would be running The Eternal Slumber, which is the first scenario of Gairdians of the Abyss. After that you said they were not running the first scenario. You followed that up with this: Which clears up nothing. When you say “I remembered the scenario incorrectly” what does that mean? At that point in the conversation you had said we WERE playing the first scenario, and that were WERE NOT playing the first scenario. Simply saying “I remembered the scenario incorrectly” does not clear anything up. You then posted the following: Which again, adds nothing to the conversation. Instead of accusing me of putting words in your mouth, you should clearly sate what parts of Invocation you think will be happening at Arkham Nights?

    Arkham Nights 2018 Dates

    Please show me where this happened and I would be glad to respond to anything you have written that is not a contradiction of something else you wrote. So you do not know which scenario will be played, yet you insist Invocation 2018 will be happening at Arkham Nights. Here is a list of the swag you get, and the events planned at Invocation 2018: - Play The Eternal Slumber scenario - Receive a copy of The Eternal Slumber which will include extended art cards of Lucky - Receive an Invocation 2018 game mat - Receive a stylish set of card dividers Here are the things on that list that will be happening at Arkham Nights 2018 - Receive an Invocation 2018 game mat Look, I was the first person to point out that Invocation was happening at Arkham Nights according to the ticket page at ShowClix. I am also the only one that posted a message discussing my frustration with Fantasy Flight for raising the cost of Arkham Nights such an insane amount (even if Invocation 2018 was included in the ticket price), and then also the only one to really talk about how now that we know Invocation is not happening at Arkham Nights that we are really being taken advantage of (in my opinion). I very much would like for Invocation to happen during Arkham Nights, but unfortunately it is not (unless ticket sales have been so bad that the know they need to do something to make it up to us). I would love to be wrong, and I know my friends would love it as well. I really do wish Invocation was happening, at least then I would not feel like I got ripped off spending $70.00 for a day and a half of gaming. But at this point, all signs lead to Invocation NOT happening this coming weekend.

    Arkham Nights 2018 Dates

    Here is the way the two decks that make up Guardians of the Abyss were supposed to be released per the article on 4 May 2018, I included in one of my earlier posts. Gen Con (Aug 2 - 5): The Eternal Slumber Invocation (undetermined date before Arkham Nights): The Eternal Slumber Arkham Nights (usually around the second weekend of October): The Night's Usurper General Release (undetermined future date): Guardians of the Abyss The Eternal Slumber is the first scenario. It was released at Gen Con 2018, and will be released at Invocation 2018 (which will be happening at the Fantasy Flight Game Center on 1 December 2018 for anybody that is interested). So which is it? Will they have The Eternal Slumber as you stated, which is the first scenario, or are they not including the first scenario (which is The Eternal Slumber) as you stated?

    I do not see how this relates to Invocation being at Arkham Nights. I do not have time for a proper response, but for the time being call Fantasy Flight Game Center and ask them if you can register for Invocation 2018, and ask them what the date is and how much it will cost. They will tell you it is 1 December 2018, and that it will cost $25.00.

    This comment does not make sense, and I am not sure you actually read my post. You are saying that you believe a "modified" version of Invocation is happening at Arkham Nights. I am saying that there is no such thing as a "modified" version of Invocation. People will be playing Arkham Horror the Card Game at Arkham Nights so again, if you want to call that Invocation so be it, but it is not Invocation. Invocation 2018 is centered around the ability to play the Eternal Slumber. You do realize that the Fantasy Flight Game Center is NOT Fantasy Flight, and that the people that work at the Fantasy Flight Game Center are just people that work at a game store. MGlas1 posted his conversation with the person that runs the FFGC FaceBook page, and that person said Invocation was NOT happening at Arkham Nights. When MGlas1 pointed out that the ticket page on ShowClix stated that it was, it was immediately removed. Approximately a week later Fantasy Flight announced that they were giving the Invocation play mat out to people that attend Arkham Nights 2018 (which I am guessing is because they realized the $70.00 ticket price for Arkham Nights was too high). Since the Invocation 2018 play mat is part of the Invocation 2018 swag, if Invocation 2018 was happening at Arkham Nights they would not have to announce that they were giving the Invocation 2018 play mat out to attendees of Arkham Nights. At this point I am not posting any of this for you, but for anybody that might read this and get their hopes up that Invocation 2018 is happening at Arkham Nights this year. It is not. Unless of course you are using sabrjay's "modified" definition of Invocation, which is people playing Arkham Horror the Card Game, then it is. But if that is the case, Invocation happens at the Fantasy Flight Game Center on most days. Great, please be sure to update us all as well.

    I am sorry but a "modified" version of Invocation is not a real thing. Invocation is basically an excuse to go to a game shop and play Arkham Horror the Card Game. This year the "main draw" is the ability to play The Eternal Slumber. If you read the article that you quoted you would see that it says "At Gen Con 2018, we’ll be running the unique scenario The Eternal Slumber, a one to four player scenario which can be played as a standalone scenario or integrated into any campaign as a side story ... The scenario will also be made available and sent out to participating retail stores in Invocation Kits this fall, before Arkham Nights 2018. Each copy of The Eternal Slumber—both at Gen Con and in Invocation Kits—will come with an extended art promotional card, which will only be found in The Eternal Slumber." So if your definition of a "modified" version of Invocation is people hanging out at the Fantasy Flight Game Center playing Arkham Horror the Card Game, then yes a "modified" version of Invocation is happening at Arkham Nights.

    Not trying to start an argument here, but Invocation is NOT happening at Arkham Nights. Here is the notice for Invocation 2018. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2018/9/24/no-rest-for-the-wicked/ Now go to this page and click on “Gaming & Events”, and scroll down to 1 December. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/more/fantasy-flight-games-center/ Invocation is a separate event that costs $25.00 to attend, and will be happening AFTER Arkham Nights even though on 4 May, Fantasy Flight said it would happen BEFORE Arkham Nights per the article below. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2018/5/4/the-eternal-slumber/ I thought Invocation would be happening at Arkham Nights as well which would make sense being that it actually stated that it was on the list of Events that would be happening at Arkham Nights on the ShowClix website. That is until MGlas1 had his Facebook discussion with the Fantasy Flight Game Center, after which Invocation was removed from the ticket page. so basically we can blame MGlas1!

    I think the fact that they have added the Invocation game mat to the Arkham Nights swag is additional proof that the events are not happening at the same time.

    Invocation 2018

    Unfortunately it is not. See MGlas1’s post in the Arkham Nights forum.

    Invocation 2018

    Depends on the where you live, and when your local game store plans it. It is happening at the Fantasy Flight Game Center in Roseville on 1 December. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/op/events/arkham-horror-card-game-invocation-event/

    The new swag is cool, but it still does not justify the 75% increase in the ticket price from last year (130% from two years ago). They really should have a “mini” Invocation event at Arkham Nights (as it stated on the ticket page originally) and give us that swag as well. I am making the trip from Los Angeles and was very excited to be able to take part in both events on the same weekend with my good friends. Now I have to find a store close to me hosting Invocation, and pay an additional $25.00 (a 65% increase from last year) on top of the $70.00 for Arkham nights. I seem to remember Arkham Nights selling out the last few years, I would love to know how many tickets sold this year before they closed the pre-registration.

    I saw part of a Facebook conversation between FFGC and someone that I think posts here, and it looks as if Invocation is NOT happening at Arkham Nights this year. It has been removed from the ticket page. Here is an excerpt from an article on the FFG website from 4 May... ... At Gen Con 2018, we’ll be running the unique scenario The Eternal Slumber ... The scenario will also be made available and sent out to participating retail stores in Invocation Kits this fall, before Arkham Nights 2018 ... So not only are they not able to meet their self imposed schedule, but for some reason they are also not able to communicate to their customers that they are not able to meet it. Instead five months later they announce Invocation is happening a month and a half AFTER Arkham Nights without mentioning the reason for the delay. Couple that with a 75% increase in the cost of tickets for Arkham Nights, an event where they will be giving away the second of a two part deck, the first of which will be given away at an event a month and a half later, and it makes me wonder how anybody can think this company cares about its customers. The ticket page clearly said that the Invocation event would be happening at Arkham Nights this year (does anyone have a screenshot of it?), which makes sense considering the price increase, and the inability to schedule Invocation separately before Arkham Nights. Like everyone else, I love the games, and I want the loot, but this is just disgusting. I cannot be the only person that feels this way. Seriously people, if you are angry about this you have to say something about it. No hiding in the shadows reading posts, you need to post yourself! There are obviously bigger issues in the world today, but when the people that are supposed to be giving you enjoyment in this world are constantly screwing you over, it is pretty sad. One more thing! I do not have a Facebook account but please go support people there that are questioning this as well!

    It sounds like MGlas1 has played The Eternal Slumber so hopefully he (or she) will check in soon, and will be able to give you some advice. Here is some information about how to build a deck for the standalone scenarios that he (or she) posted earlier in this thread. 0-9 experience: 0 additional random basic weaknesses 10-19 experience: 1 additional random basic weakness 20-29 experience: 2 additional random basic weaknesses 30-39 experience: 3 additional random basic weaknesses 40-49 experience: 4 additional random basic weaknesses A player cannot include 50 or more experience worth of cards in a standalone deck

    Here is a list of events at Arkham Nights 2018 from the Showclix website. The second item on the list would seem to imply that the FFGC’s Invocation 2018 event will be happening at Arkham Nights this year. Events will include: Play with Designer sessions Arkham Horror: The Card Game Invocation Event Card Council Design a Card event with Matt and Nate (seats to be raffled) The cards designed at Arkham Nights will be printed and distributed to all attendees before the end of the show Previews of Arkham Horror 3rd Edition Demoes and play throughs of FFG’s Arkham Horror Files line, including: Elder Sign, Eldritch Horror Mansions of Madness Arkham Horror: The Card Game End of the World: Wrath of the Gods and more!

    Invocation 2018 occurring at Arkham Nights?

    Check the "Arkham Nights 2018 Dates " thread, it has been discussed there. But to answer your question, I believe that FFGC's Invocation event will be happening during Arkham Nights.
