    Arkham Nights 2018 Dates

    Got my tickets also, but yikes... that price hike! Anyway, thanks for the link.

    Arkham Nights 2018 Dates

    They've traditionally been $25, but iirc they raised them to $35 last year.

    Arkham Nights 2018 Dates

    They did give us notice way ahead of time this year... they posted on their Facebook page a few months back that it was October 19th & 20th.

    How old are you

    41. The average age of my game group is probably mid-30s, and it's about half people in the 40-42 range and half in the mid-20s. I played board games with my family as a child, then was heavy into both RPGs and video games from age 10 or so. Got heavy into board games about 5 years ago. I'm excited to be going to my 4th Arkham Nights next month, as it's only a three hour drive. 😁

    Will there be new investigators?

    Daniela likes "fast cars and fast women" and Calvin's lost lover was a man. So, I'm (somewhat intentionally incorrectly as I'm certainly not in the aforementioned 'ewww... gay stuff!' crowd) using "gay" as shorthand for LGBTQ+, since we don't have full information on either's orientation exactly. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth when Daniela and the new, now-official version of Calvin were introduced in EH from people who apparently think everyone was straight back in the 1920s. One person was even upset that FFG was introducing "explicit sexual content" in EH because Daniela's investigator card had the line about liking fast cars and fast women... 🙄

    Will there be new investigators?

    It's almost certainly 2 of the 3 of Daniela, Calvin, and Sefina. So, at least one of them is going to piss off the "ewwww... gay stuff!" crowd.

    when will there be a reprint of the expansions?

    Searching for "Arkham Horror -LCG -Card" helps somewhat with that, even if it doesn't completely eliminate it.

    What is the point of this game being "unique"?

    I don't think there's any question this is true. Garfield came up with the "Unique" concept for Keyforge, and pitched it to FFG, then FFG thought it was a cool gimmick and decided to create a line of games around it. My bet is they're banking on it being their next big concept/gimmick like LCGs are for them. I have my doubts, but I guess we'll see.

    What is the point of this game being "unique"?

    It seems to me this idea would almost necessitate "booster packs". They're really playing up the sense of discovery and the unknown with the random contents, but after you play it several times, that sense of discovery will obviously start to diminish. Hence, random packs of explorers, scenarios, and threats seem like an obvious inclusion... I still don't "get" the concept of using the 'Unique' element in a game like this (I mean, has anyone ever sat down to play a game of Eldritch Horror or Zombicide or Gloomhaven and thought "boy, I wish my copy wasn't the same as everyone else's"?), and am not sure if I'm interested or not, but I guess I can at least see some potential.

    Well, I'm back ...

    Except that Talisman is not that great of a game, so maybe it's not the best example...

    Any news from gen con?

    Definitely not. The whole concept is ridiculous.
  13. There doesn't really seem to be any reason to continue releasing EH products with this coming. Even with all the differences between the two, they both occupy the same 'sphere' of long, moderately heavy, thematic co-ops. EH (my favorite game) had a great run, but it makes sense to bring back AH with a fresh coat of paint, especially with the departure of Nikki Valens from FFG. It seems likely that after 3-4 years and 7-8 expansions, FFG will circle back around with EH 2nd Edition. Then, a few years and EH 2E expansions later, we'll be back to AH 4th edition, etc...

    out of stock?!?!?!

    Yeah, my actual guess is Arkham Horror 2nd Edition, but we should find out soon.

    out of stock?!?!?!

    Assuming they're not about to announce a 2nd edition in the next few days, that is...
