  1. I would say that is highly unlikely. The mats from both Invocation events had "Invocation" and the year printed on them. I suppose it is possible that they would break with tradition this year, but as I said I think that is unlikely. To be honest, I have a feeling there may not be an Invocation this year. I have started a new thread to discuss it.
  2. I am starting to think Invocation is not happening this year. Asked at my local game shop, and was told they have heard nothing about if there will be an event this year. Starting to get a bit worried. Has anybody heard anything?
  3. I am not sure how much credit I would give them for lowering the price to the amount it should be after last year's insane (and maybe unjustified) inflation, though I am happy about the additional day being added. One thing that I am confused/worried about is, will we be receiving all of the "The Blob That Ate Everything" items that were given out at GenCon (shown in the picture below)? I love the mat and the large Blob card, and I have a friend that is pretty fond of the poster. It seems odd they will be running "The Blob..." just as at GenCon, but will not be handing out the same items. I believe it cost $30.00 to either play or purchase the scenario at GenCon. I will be pretty disappointed if we do not get the mat and the larger card, but unfortunately if we go by what was posted on the announcement page, I have a feeling we are not getting them. Since GenCon I have assumed (based on what has been done the last few years) that we would get the GenCon items at either Arkham Nights, or Invocation this year. I suppose that it is possible that we get the mat, larger Blob card, and poster at Invocation, but that does not seem likely since we will be playing the scenario at Arkham Nights. I have not mentioned the Alice Luxley card because I am assuming (fingers crossed) it is in the scenario clamshell. * I found this image in a post by Duciris. I am not sure who took the picture, or who owns it, but I wanted to at least give credit as to where I found it.
  4. Last year (2018) they announced the dates on their Facebook page on 10 June. If I remember correctly, in 2017 they announced the dates two weeks before the event. Here are the ticket prices for the last four years: 2018 - $70.00 2017 - $40.00 2016 - $30.00  2015 - $25.00
  5. Hmm... it looks like you must have accidentally been trying to edit your post, highlighted the whole thing, and then hit the period button. I hate when that happens. Here it is so that people can see what I was replying to: sabrjay said: 15 minutes ago, LabanShrewsbury said: Sorry folks, as many have said, Invocation, “modified” or not, is NOT happening here. Good to see you are holding to form and still being jerk for the sake being a jerk. The photo file is too big to upload but we were given The Night’s Usurper scenario, a sheet for how to start the scenario and another sheet to record our results to be turned in to the event organizers. You can play the scenario as many times as you want during the course of Arkham Nights, whether as a group, or solo. So go pound sand. You know nothing and proved it.
  6. I posted this on Tuesday, apparently you have not had a chance to read it. ”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” Here is a link to the Fantasy Flight article regarding Invocation 2018. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2018/9/24/no-rest-for-the-wicked/ you really should at some point read some of this stuff. As everyone except for you seems to know, The Nights Usurper is NOT the Invocation 2018 scenario, it is the Arkham Nights 2018 scenario. That is why they are handing it out at Arkham Nights 2018. As I said, no form of Invocation 2018 is happening at Arkham Nights. Please sabrjay read the information provided before commenting.
  7. Who is playing the Invocation scenario? I have not seen any of the FFGC people running the “Invocation scenario”. I am not sure I even believe you know which scenario is the Invocation scenario. It definitely is not on the official list of events print out they have up front. and by “some of the swag” you mean the mat. Sorry folks, as many have said, Invocation, “modified” or not, is NOT happening here.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
