    Fewer Novellas, More Side Adventures!

    I bought the first at Arkham Nights, and bought the 3rd while visiting family during the Easter weekend. Since I missed the 2nd (Ire of the Void), I decided (with my parents' consent) to pre-order through FFG and have my parents pick them up for me as they come out since they live in the area. Since they sell out so quickly, I wanted to be sure to get the rest. So, for now, I'll just be missing Norman. I'm glad the 3rd was still there since I play Roland quite a bit and it will be nice to use the more forgiving weakness....though as soon as the new set comes out, I plan to try out Leo. Will be fun to see which I prefer playing. (in 2-player games)

    Most likely. The Arkham games are still going strong so I would guess they'll be another Arkham Nights this year too. Will be many months until they announce it though - probably in August/September. The event itself is typically in mid-October (my guess would be Oct 12-13 if it follows the pattern of previous years), but this is all pure speculation. Just have to wait for the announcement.

    Hour of the Huntress

    Most of the signature weaknesses are worse than the benefit their signature asset gives so I doubt I will ever play with both sets unless I am just doing it for fun. I can't see it helping for the most part unless my character manipulates the deck a lot (to avoid weaknesses).

    Hour of the Huntress

    Well, the way they word it, it seems to indicate you include them as sets (asset and weakness together), but since it's a coop, there is nothing stopping anyone from doing it any way they wish. But, the words as written indicate what you stated (either just use original asset/weakness, just use new asset/weakness, or use all 4).

    Arkham Nights 2017

    Yeah, I have a friend in California who would have came if the notice was different so he won't be coming. I am also holding off on judgment about the price because I have never felt like I haven't gotten my money's worth out of going, and the price increase will likely not change that. Last year I was actually quite surprised that the price wasn't higher after I learned we got an expansion (and that ended up having an MSRP of $15 by itself).

    2017 Tickets

    I'd say there is a decent of getting to play the Labyrinths of Lunacy since the picture on the advertisement is the same as on it: https://boardgamegeek.com/image/3715409/arkham-horror-card-game-labyrinths-lunacy

    Arkham Nights 2017

    It definitely is the shortest notice we have gotten. Luckily I am driving distance (Lol, was using google to get approximate hours, but did walking instead - 110 hours). Driving time is 4 hrs 50 minutes I typically miss most of Friday as I don't take off of work, but often still have time to pick up my bag and look around.

    I'm surprised there still isn't an official announcement.

    Arkham Nights 2017

    List of past dates Arkham Nights was announced and when the event occurred:Year - Announced - Event2010 - June 30 - Oct 22-24 (Fri-Sun)2011 - July 28 - Oct 14-16 (Fri-Sun)2012 - Aug 9 - Oct 12-14 (Fri-Sun)2013 - Sept 23 - Nov 16-17 (Sat/Sun)2014 - Sept 18 - Oct 17-18 (Fri/Sat)2015 - Sept 14 - Oct 9-10 (Fri/Sat)2016 - Aug 30 - Oct 14-15 (Fri/Sat)Mid-October is the average (save for 2013 when they were opening a new event center).And for 2017, barring no other event conflicts, I would guess October 13-14 (Fri/Sat).It seems the Oct 13-14 guess is pretty good since it has never gone so early as Oct 6-7 and has only gone as late as Oct 20-21 way back during the first Arkham Nights (*ignoring 2013). As can be seen by the announcement dates, it likely won't be announced until next week if the event occurs. (Last year was likely announced earlier than normal as it was also advertising a new game - Arkham Horror Card Game.) But, everything is just speculation so who knows. If the event occurs around the same time as usual, I expect to hear an announcement in the next couple of weeks.

    Deck Recommendation

    And, sorry for going so hard on the investigator choices, I didn't even mention the options! I actually go against the rules for this one. I either construct a deck for them that I feel is pretty good and varied enough to get a taste of most types of cards or I just make them the recommended starter deck since it is the most varied. The 2nd option is actually my preference (starter deck). If you do not have a 2nd core set, you wouldn't have many options until Dunwich anyway. Plus, it lets them experience as many different cards as possible. Then, once the first scenario completes, I let them fully reconstruct their decks for the 2nd scenario since they now have a feel for it. The upgrades are still handled the same way. So basically, for that first scenario, I let them swap level zero for other level zero cards without spending experience (usually costs 1 xp per level zero swap). It lets them make the deck their own. They have no idea what is coming in the next couple of scenarios, so I find it really does not have much of an effect while playing the base game. Plus I only let them do this after playing that 1st scenario. That way, they also get to experience created a deck (instead of just swapping out a single card).
