  1. There are several ways. This was my first idea but the links aren't working. You could even make proxies with a pen and paper, it all depends how good do you need them to look. Which expansions do you have?
  2. This is an error. The question is what kind of error. If you could post a photo of the encounter card in question, everything should become clear. Alternatively you could post the full text of that encounter and tell from which expansion is that card but I suppose photo will be easier to make.
  3. I've seen the announcement and I still was confused. "today Innsmouth finally gets Released" "That was fast fast" I thought.
  4. The molds they used for the figures were broken or something. They may revisit this products in a new form but I wouldn't count on it anytime soon.
  5. I think the idea was that Final Hour would replace Elder Sign as the 'light' entry in the Arkham Files line. Unfortunately, that game is pretty terrible (IMHO, of course). Even if Final Hour would be good, "light" isn't a genre. I'm one of these people who would argue that AH3ed is so different form AH2ed that it should be marketed as a new game rather than new edition. Still, they share a fair number of similarities among their mechanics. Just like Arkham Horror and Eldritch Horror. It's reasonable to consider any of these three games an alternative for another. But Final Hour gameplay is so removed from Elder Sign that it's preposterous to consider it a replacement. Yet, I'm pretty certain you're right and that's what happened.
  6. Ah, it's a shame. They could still milk it, there's no replacement for this line.
  7. There is a "Customer Service" link on the main page of the official site. For this type of request it's more suitable than forum.
  8. Well, if the game tells you to do something you do it, as long as you're able. I don't think there's a more specific ruling for this. Finn's ability doesn't protect you from all discards, just from some of those. This post or this one give might help you.
  9. Investigators, Items, Spells, Allies. That would be pretty close to a definitive list of universal components.
  10. A specific wording is important. If the effect just says "Discard 1 asset" you would have to discard something if able, and you are able to discard the Task. But I failed to find such plain discard, so I suspect the wording of your effect could be different.
  11. Has it been officially stated? They already surprised us once in the past. For comparison, it has been officially confirmed that Eldritch Horror is done for.
  12. You can't use the same action twice in the same turn. This rule isn't specific to components in any way. In general you can use the same component as many times as you like in a turn, for example by using a "Gain +1 Strength" effect. I think a clarification is in place of what constitutes a "same action". Each instance counts as separate action even if it has an identical text. If you have an Enchanted Bow and Monster Hunter, you can perform action from both of these assets in one turn. If you have two Old Journals, you can also perform action from both of these assets in one turn. And if, theoretically, a card would have the same action printed twice then you could also perform both of these actions in one turn.
  13. If you need a specific card and it isn't available you can't gain it. That's what's written in the rules. You could houserule a specific replacement but I doubt it would be worth it for this rare occurrence. As a sidenote: With 1 or 2 expansions it becomes impossible to ran out of Debts.
  14. They stated that the era of pushing expansions in rapid succession is mainly gone. We have waited quite long for the first expansion, we'll probably have to wait long for the second.
  15. If other options fail I have a silly workaround for you which should work. You could try to install an android emulator (for example Nox App Player or BlueStacks) on your PC and then install the android version of the app on the emulator.
  16. Surprisingly, I think this hasn't been clarified directly. But I believe that the precedents still give us an unambiguous answer. Before I link my sources let's try an example with the same wording and different effect. "When this card enters play, the Lead Investigator chooses 1 investigator to become Delayed discard 1 Focus." Can you choose an investigator that has no focus? You surely can as it's likely that no one has any Focus. But if one investigator has Focus are you forced to choose that investigator? I say: Definitely not. Choose anyone and that investigator discards 1 Focus if they can. And for the original effect: Choose any investigator and they become Delayed if they can. You choose someone and an effect happens to them. There is no prerequisite that they need to able to suffer the effect in the fullest. Another example: Kate has 1 Health, and Mary has 3 Health. Mythos card says "Choose an investigator to lose 3 Health". Are you forced to choose Mary? No. You can choose Kate to "cheat" out of losing 2 Health. I do hope I managed to make this matter more clear. My sources: Patrolling the Border, Choose an investigator to become delayed, Delayed twice?, Blight Card Reckoning
  17. And that's what the problem is about. I know for sure that some MoN cards have inconsistent wording. I'm pretty certain not all of them. When a card like Meditation appears I have no good way to discern to which of the two groups does it belong. I have great memory for games and rules. This was very useful with Eldritch Horror. For four years I could solve about 99% of rule dilemmas almost instantly. Then MoN came out and suddenly I don't know anything. This is extremely frustrating for me as I was very stoked for this expansion. I am sorry for the rant. I was a fan of this game before it was published and MoN kinda broke my heart.
  18. Gate stack. They don't. Moxie prevents loss of sanity. Dreamwalker asks you to spend Sanity and spending isn't losing. Compare, for example, True Magick, which works both for spending and losing. Healing Words change how much you recover through Rest and are affected by Hypnos. As for Meditation, the case is more complex. With it's wording it is unaffected by Hypnos. But it was released in MoN which I know for inconsistent wording. So the intent could be that it's also affected by Hypnos. That would be consistent with other cards and in line with the Grim Rule ("When in doubt choose the interpretation that's worse for the players") so this might be a smarter choice. You could try and ask FFG directly about the Hypnos/Meditation interaction but as the game's main designer no longer works for them, and Eldritch Horror is no longer developed, I have a fair amount of doubt about kosherness of an answer you might get.
  19. Gates of Arkham started what I would call a "reboot" of the Elder Sign game. GoA and each subsequent expansion is more akin of a standalone game than an actual expansion. Each of this expansions only uses its own mythos deck. I don't know if there's an official answer but I'm certain you aren't intended to mix Unseen Forces mythos with Gates of Arkham mythos. That mythos decks is specifically crafted to have a lot of interactions with expansion's mechanisms, like gates. Mixing Unseen Forces in would dilute those effects. But I would advise you to check it yourself. Play a few Gates of Arkham games without Unseen Forces mythos, then play a few games with them. Then you'll be able to tell which experience you prefer. You might eventually decide that some of the Unseen Forces mythos cards are fitting leaving out the others.
  20. I checked out of curiosity and the confusion is fully justified. We're in the "Board and Card Games" and that other game is called "Arkham Horror: The Card Game" so it's completely reasonable to look for it here. And there's only one Arkham Horror on this list so it should be the correct one. @enkienki for the future, look for that card game's forum in the "Living Card Games". (It would be more clear if it would be actually marketed as a Living Card Game.) As for your question: And how would you go about identifying it twice? You either have "identified the solution" in your Campaign Log, or not. And the upgraded versions only check if you have identified the solution and not how many times you have identified the solution.
  21. For tiles at least, this explanation is impossible to be true as the tiles differed from those in the 1st edition. Symbols determining whether the tile depicts an "outside" area were added.
  22. Well, there's certainly demand. I would think that making new molds and just re-releasing the collections is a nice way to make some money as they don't need to design anything new for it.
  23. Would you be so kind and provide a quick summary? His accent is quite troublesome to me and it would be a pain to listen to this whole chat to fish for this specific tidbit of info. I quite often have troubles with understanding what people are saying even in my native language. I process written language much better than heard.
  24. A spent Clue is discarded. It doesn't go back to the Clue pool until that pool is empty. All kinds of double-sided cards are shuffled back to their respective deck at the moment they are discarded.
