I've just purchased Warhammer Invasion and CoC and these are our first ever card games. After a rocky start with warhammer (very poor manual) we are enjoying playing and eyeing up some of the expansions but we have some questions about CoC.
We aren't quite seeing the whole point to CoC, we only played one game and we thought it would be more story centric but this was not the case. I don't even see why they are called story cards as they have no story. Also, since the other person can see the other players characters the game seems to just descend into matching the icons and it turns into quite a dull game. The website states:
Story cards represent the bizarre and frightening situations that investigators and cultists alike find themselves contending in
They must be talking about a different set of story cards as the 10 in the box just have an action on them.
So I guess my question is what is the point of CoC?
Also, the game came with only 1 conspiracy card, should there have been two?
Thanks in advance for any answers, hopefully understand CoC a bit more I'll be able to enjoy future games more than I currently do
