    AsahinaMaebure got a reaction from Bronze in Story Assets - Using slots when they first appear?   
    He (and I) know that is the way the rules work, but what I believe he is asking is thoughts on an alternate house rule. I feel the change would be fine and, additionally, makes sense from the story aspect. I also feel that this makes a good house rule with solo play. As he said, you wouldn't just tell Leo to scram immediately after you talk Lita into helping you defeat the ghoul priest which he has already been helping you with.

    Kits will cost retailers $40 so I would expect that cost to be passed on to the players.

    The only issue I see with Book of Shadows is that you will have to stay or keep going back to Mystic class, and that means you aren't getting to spend much time in your other 2 roles, which kills 1/2 your cards.

    AsahinaMaebure got a reaction from Ompakim in Carcosa Gencon Reactions?   
    I have been playing around with a Lola Hays deck, and so far I found she works best as Seeker/Survivor/Guardian, though she is less combat and more about playing Teamwork and True Grit while in her Guardian role than shooting things. She just does not have the health or sanity for surviving combat. 
     
    I tried her with Mystic but the sanity hits were too hard. She also did not work well with the Rogue Cards as they have a lot of 'succeed by 2 or more' effects and she often can just succeed and misses out on the added bonuses.
     
    After a few more tests, I may publish my deck build on arkhamdb, but that will depend on how well I feel she plays the next few times. She is interesting to build around but she just may not be useful in groups or solo. The jury is still out.

    The 'Cosmic Terrors' playmat helps with setup, but I wish it included setup for the player cards/decks. It is a nice big mat though and I absolutely love mine.

    AsahinaMaebure reacted to Buhallin in Marie Lambeau - Occult cards and deck limits   
    I believe so, because it says "Occult...and up to five other level 0..."
    So the last 5 Seeker/Survivor is separate from everything that comes before it.  Same would apply for any spell cards that happened to be Seeker or Survivor.

    I know a lot of people still prefer the physical, which is of course great too   I started it primarily because almost all the games I play in are 4 or even 5 players, and we found that all the juggling and passing add a considerable amount of time to the game.  When you're trying to squeeze a 5-player game in at lunch on a work day, the extra time adds up!

    I'm the nutjob that bought 4 core sets because I play solo a lot and wanted to be able to do any combination of investigators.  You'll know if that's the path for you

    I use a leather dice cup I got with the Elder sign stiched on the side.  Very thematic.
    I don't use the actual tokens, though -- I converted to glass beads:

    They have nicer hand feel and are easier to shake and root around in.

    Here's what I believe to be the most amazing app for AHTCG at the Play Store (apparently, only available for Android at this time): the Arkham Campaign Guide. It basically replaces the printed campaign guide(s) and automates everything for you (resolutions, story card assets adding to decks, XP earned/spent, et. al). You can keep track of an infinite number of campaigns using any of the investigators and it will even link each investigator to any deck (via URL) at ArkhamDB.com. Saves all the campaigns to your device, allows you to do side quests (PODs, etc.) AND features a virtual chaos bag that is robust and easily adjusted. 
    The dev has kept up with every single exp pack, updating the app within days of release. 
    It used to floor me that so few players have heard of the app, but that's because you can't find it very easily at the Play Store. Search for "arkham horror" or "arkham horror card game", it doesn't show up. It will show up if you search for simply "arkham", but I feel that most people don't do so in order to filter out all the Batman hits. Searching for "arkham campaign" brings it right up.
    Anyway... here's the link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.whitdan.arkhamhorrorlcgcampaignguide
    Even if you only use it for the Chaos Bag, it's great; but I imagine some peeps will find the entire app really useful.
     
    --> My first post here (and first LCG, too!)... fantastic community.  Just thought I'd finally chime in.

    There is another free app called simply 'Arkham' available for iOS and I think it is available for Android as well. It lets you easily set up multiple bags and label them, but it does not let you enter data for the specific text of the graphic tokens based on the scenario/difficulty. I find it is simpler to pass around the phone or iPad sometimes than the physical bag, plus one of my playgroup likes to tie the bag when he is done, which annoys me...

    Tipping the minis over is a good idea. We are constantly forgetting to flip or refresh our mini cards. Using the minis also saves a lot of table space, since the minis sit on the location cards.

    I am not a doom and gloomer, but I am a reserved optimist with realistic spectacles. I am ecstatic that FFG has bought the L5R IP. I have every confidence that they will make and excellent product and more importantly, they have every reason to make an excellent product. They did BUY L5R from AEG. Is it possible to be frozen in carbonate in a month or so and rescued from Jabba's palace, (and not thrown into the Sarlac pit and be thawed - I know I am asking for a lot) a couple of days from GenCon 2017? Anyway, back to the subject of this thread.
    1. I hope FFG will allow and encourage fan sites (I am a mod at the Crane one).
    2. I hope they also allow and encourage fan run events during the 2 year gap.
    And finally,
    3. I hope we hear their stance on use of mons on custom, fan-made, not for sale/profit, prize support.
