  1. I refer to this thread on bgg when I mentioned the discussion. https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1670726/rolands-cover So saying there is "no discussion going on" is not totally true. I fully agree with you, I just wanted to mention that there were some people that didn't for the sake of completeness. Since then, we have received an official response that we are indeed correct and cover up can't be used that way.
  2. As far as I know you can do the investigate action even if there are no clues on a location. Certain cards benefit from this. Fr example: Burglary: [Action] Exhaust Burglary: Investigate. If you succeed, INSTEAD of discovering clues, gain 3 resources. Take care though, this isn't always the case and you have to read the card carefully. For example: Cover up: [Reaction] When you WOULD discover 1 or more clues at your location: Discard that many clues from Cover Up instead. In the latter case, you can't use cover up since you can't satisfy the WOULD prerequisite (since there are no clues). Edit: for full clarity, there is some discussion going on about cover up and whether or not you can use it if there are no clues on your location. I personally think you can't (based on my answer above and if that isn't enough because of Arkham's razor), but I understand why people disagree.
  3. Yes, and no. There are some combinations of investigators that don't work optimally because of 'sphere' overlap. That said, this doesn't have to be a major problem in the long run since expansions introduce investigators with only 1 sphere (see the dunwich investigators). Finally, since all the expansions 'only' carry doubles of player cards, you'd technically need to buy multiple sets of those as well to counter the 'problem'. Don't do it Long story short: complete playset is two cores. If you REALLY need more duplicates, I'd suggest using proxies.
  4. Yeah, that's true. I am mostly doing it for the tiles/monsters though. So, do they add significant replayability to the other scenarios?
  5. I am about to buy the two component expansions, but I have heard reports that they are only really used in the two added scenarios (and in the main game very scarcely). Does anyone have experience with this? Do the monsters and tiles add a signifixant amount of replayability to the main scenarios?
  6. Thanks, really looking forward to the game Is it possible to use Drawn to the Flame on a location without clues, do you think? I'm guessing it has to do with'discover' and whether or not you need actual clues at the location vs the pool.
  7. Thanks for the tips! I will most definitely post my results when I'm done.
  8. Hey guys, I've never really painted miniatures before but thought I'd give it a try for this game. Any tips for a first-timer? Maybe also some tips for glueing the minis to the bases? Since I live in the Netherlands, I was also wondering where you (non-usa people) buy your supplies? Since the game itself is so expensive, I don't have a lot of money to spare. Thanks in advance
  9. Bit unclear about damage/horror. Can you divide damage/horror? For example: an enemy does 3 damage. Can you then assign two damage to your investigator and 1 to an asset (with a health value) or do you assign all danage from a single source to the same subject?
  10. Hey, I've always wanted to try/buy Descent, but I'm not a fan of the 1-vs-group playstyle. The app seems wonderful, I was just wondering if there is enough content if you buy Descent only to play it with the app. Thanks in advance!
  11. Hey all, My copy is currently in the mail and I'm planning on playing the first scenario this weekend. Because the app appears to still be buggy for (some?) people, I was wondering if there is a difference between platforms? I have an Ipad Air, but I could also use my laptop (slightly more clunky, but rather be problem-free). Anyone have experience with multiple versions of the app? Cheers
  12. Thanks for the answer, Julia. My choice will probably be either four or five players. Since Eldritch Horror works best with an even number of players, it's good to hear five players can play MoM just as well.
  13. Hey all, My copy is in the mail but I was wondering what in your opinion is the best player count? Is it necessary to play all scenarios with the same players? Thanks in advance!
