    Death or Insanity during Solo Play

    This is how the electronic game handles all investigators going crazy or dying, the game ends. Of course with that game you are given the choice to build a party of up to 4 characters. There are a few things to keep in mind as far as when a character is dead. Each time you have an investigator fall they increment the doom counter. And once the ancient one is summoned, if an investigator falls they are not replaced. Depending on which investigator is being used the game should already be very tricky. The variable powers tend to make the game work better towards a team based effort, since health and sanity can be depleted quite easily with some of the trickier adventure cards. Especially the ones that you need for Elder Signs.

    You are able to use an action to move a barricade away from a door or secret passage. Barricades can't be moved from one space to another unless a specific action allows you to, so if there are multiple doors in the same space as the barricade, then yes. Otherwise no. When testing a monsters brawn against a barricade, if they pass then they burst through the door and get their full movement and available attack. Hope this helps! If you are looking for more answers then look in the Rules Reference, page 5. The app shows which space the barricade is added in, you can then use an action to move it against a door in that space. Once the app spawns a barricade it will vanish because the game doesn't know when an investigator moves it for use or when a monster busts through one destroying it. Keep in mind that the only thing that the app leaves visible on the map are items that will need to be interacted like a search token that will provide more information about an object, an explore token to open a door to a new room, or an interact token for special events. Anything else will show you where it spawns, but after that it will be removed.

    Super Lost Here

    Not sure where the person you were playing with found that rule... The Rules Reference, page 17 explains any other questions you might have regarding the use of spells. One more thing regarding Damage and Horror. You'll eventually find events that will give you both. Whatever test you are using to counter can be used to negate whichever of the cards you would like. For example if you suffer 2 Horror and 1 Damage and roll 2 successes, you could use this to get rid of one of each or both Horror cards. And don't forget that Damage/Horror is dealt face-up unless the app specifically says 'face-down'.
  4. They've pretty routinely been putting out expansions for Mansions of Madness and Eldritch Horror. Neither of these are card games, and they don't take place in the Star Wars universe. So while there isn't a recently new IP, there is definitely new stuff in the other lines. And there are many other products outside of these categories that they have been working on too. It's probably getting hard to do anything too new with the Lovecraft Universe. They have 5 games based off it all!

    monster princip in expansions ice and deep

    My understanding of it from the rules set forth as far back as the base game has been that monster and tasks are all done from the same dice pool. You have items and character abilities that refresh dice after they have been used, but you do not get your dice back from defeating a monster. That being said, the monster stays defeated even if you do not finish the adventure tasks. As far as spreading the monsters, again from the base game rules, they have to be spread throughout the available adventure cards evenly. Even if there is a second monster slot you aren't supposed to place a second monster until you have at least one monster per card. If they keep spawning though, you keep adding them to all the cards and can have as many monsters in the game as exist in the draw cup.

    Phoenix Paint & Mod

    That's what I did with my Thralls, used colors to separate them for different spawns! Nice work with everything!

    Advice needed

    The only hiccup in all this is hunting for map tiles. KEEP THEM SORTED! There's nothing like looking for that one tile that you need that turns up in another stack 15 mins later. We normally pass the stacks out to make it a bit easier.

    Very interested but App concern

    There is currently even an ongoing project to provide personal user created content. Valkyrie is providing an outlet for personal creation. And FFG is still rolling pretty strong with new expansions and DLC content. Besides, Even if they do discontinue creating new content there's probably little risk that you wouldn't have some way to access the existing software. But like KBlumhardt said, this has been brought up many times before... There can only be so much comforting to be stated on the topic.

    Strange Remnants

    I feel like it almost has to be hard to find before they decide to do a reprint. At that point it's just waiting for it to arrive from the boat to be distributed.
  10. Well, the box does say 1-5 players, but it says if playing solo to pick 2 investigators. Good find on the glitch though! i wonder what math it applies to the monster power and countdown timer, if it uses 1 or is 2 the base value for calculations.
  11. This might not be a bug... While it is anticlimactic and some times even works out to be against the story, your still working against a countdown mechanic that is running behind the scenes. You might think that you are further along, but there are times when the game hits midnight and the end arrives. I've had to explain to my gaming group about not looking in every nook and cranny just to uncover each search token if they don't have to.

    Omens of the Pharaoh rules?

    it already is, under the support section of the products page. But here's a LINK to it.
  13. I was interested in looking just to see how this worked, but it is solid spanish and not wanting to sign up for an account was a deterrent as well
  14. I was literally just typing all that BruceLGL! Then saw that you posted before I could finish typing.
  15. This is of course hoping that someone would realize that that would be a door, since it is being covered with a wall token... could be a first game and with no solid direction I can see where this would cause confusion.
