  1. I've decided to go for a comination of Hastur and Syndicate. Using mainly Hastur characters and Syndicate support cards. I won a game against a Shub deck, but I'm not sure if that was just because the player was new. Does anyone think that these two factions make a good combination?
  2. This is very interesting, thanks for posting. Interestingly enough, Yog seemed to be the most powerful when I opened my core set, especially the single glimpse card, which gets nasty after you let Cthulhu eat some of his allies.
  3. I'm going to have to be cliched and say that 'Call of Cthulhu' is my favourite, it was so groundbreaking for its time and has, well, Cthulhu in it.
  4. That's what I was thinking too, but I'm not sure; you might have to wait until the end of the turn to check for game win or somesuch, which would mean that you win and lose... Very Mythosesque.
  5. Hi there, good to see another new player. I mainly play Hastur decks, but the Agency are a firm second favourite for me, I play them quite a lot. The question of being overpowered depends on the cards that are being used, the cards that are circulating at my club seem to make Shub the overpowered one... The Agency also strikes me as an easy one for new players, so that could be why they seem overpowered. Once you and your friends get into the game more, the Agency should seem less powerful.
  6. Hmm... I'm viewing Azathoth not so much as a game winning card, but more of a 'look at me, I summoned Azathoth, I'm awesome' card. I would claim a moral (or maybe immoral) victory for summoning him.
  7. Okay, thanks guys. Prodigee, that set up looks good, I may have to steal that idea once I get some more cards to bulk it out. Thanks for that. PearlJamaholic, thanks for the tips. I might try and focus on rushing in future games. I might try some Sthulhu Deep Ones for early game rushing in a mixed deck. Thanks again, I'll let you know how it goes.
  8. Wow, that's scary... The last part 'you are eliminated from the game", does that refer to the player that has Azathoth out?
  9. I made the mistake of playing a four player game (long story) against a Yog deck and a Shub deck. It was horrible... I really don't like those decks...
  10. Hey everyone. I'm a die-hard Hastur fan (I also play Cthulhu from time-to-time) and I can't ever seem to beat Shub or Yog decks. My only effective tactic at the moment is to use scotophobia, send things insane with Hastur and then have Victoria's Loft out, however, it is hard to get more copies of Victoria's Loft and Scotophobia. Does anyone have any other tips for using either Hastur or Cthulhu against Shub and Yog. Thanks.
  11. Hastur, definitely. I've always loved Hastur, it's a lot of fun to play with. My favourite combination is Hastur with Victoria's Loft, it gets nasty quickly. I also like to throw in Scotophobia to get rid of those pesky terror icons, especially in those cursed Shub rushes. On the note of loving Hastur, I've decided to get the Yellow Sign tattooed on me to show my devotion.
  12. I really hope that gets the greenlight, it sounds pretty cool. As for the Dunwich Horror trailer... It looks like one of those movies that will be really horrible but fun to watch, although it doesn't look very Lovecraftian. I just hope they don't fill it with that horrible 'jumpy' horror stuff. A dude with a chainsaw popping on-screen in a moment of tension is not horror!!!!! I must say, I don't mind Stuart Gordon movies. They're suitably less Lovecraftian than Lovecraft, but I think that's important as Lovecraft's work is quite dated (I think that's half of the reason people like it so much). Stuart Gordon's style is more in-line with modern, especially his exploration of the connection between intimacy and horror; the scene in Dagon where the hero is with a woman that turns out to be half octopus is a great example. People in Lovecraft's time were constantly vulnerable due to disease, unemployment and war; modern people aren't nearly so in danger all of the time, so Gordon makes the familiar horrifying.
  13. Thank you for the welcome . Wow, I wonder what Azathoth would be like in-game? Terrifying thoughts just flooded my inferior human brain: massive sanity loss.
  14. I agree completely, Trublood is great. My partner showed it to me after much dodging on my part (I'm kind of sick of vampires), but it's really quite good, I don't think I'd classify it as horror though, maybe I'm just jaded. And I LOVE the X-Files. The last few seasons were kind of silly, but the early episodes were great, especially 'Home'.
  15. By Hastur! I think you're right there... Was the photograph taken near a farm by chance?
  16. Okay, I'm quite new to this game, but I love it and new to the forum, so hi everyone. Do I understand this correctly: there will be an Azathoth card in this new set?
  17. Hmm, I would have to say eldritch or noisome. Non-Euclidean is a good one too, especially for the 40K Demons.
