New Player Monster Question

Recommended Posts



New player to Eldrich Horror and relatively new to tabletop games with basic questions regarding monsters.


1) When a monster enters play, do they enter "facedown" so that their stats aren't visible?  Or can I flip them over to see what I'm dealing with before I engage them?


2) When I play a card that allows me to deal damage to any monster, does it have to be a monster I'm currently battling, or can it be a monster that's face down that I've not engaged with?


My group received the option to deal 4 damage to any monster, which I would have placed on an epic monster to try to complete a mystery, but seeing that I hadn't flipped the epic monster over to view it's stats, I didn't know how much toughness he had, or, if that was even legal to begin with.


Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome :)

1. Monsters stats are open info: you can flip the chit and check them out anytime you want (the game is highly strategic and not memory-based)

2. Any implies any, hence any monster on the board. And yes, you can check any epic monster's toughness and decide whether to damage it or not (any effect targeting monsters targets also epic monsters)

Hope this helps :)
