There's a new condition card which I'm adding here not for the interesting bits of mechanic it has but rather the outstanding artwork on it.  Incredibly evocative.

I gotta say that I am pretty excited for this expansion.  I wasn't at first watching the live feed as i was hoping that FFG would start to introduce some of the "other worldly" locations in the game.  Portals to planets and dimensions are what makes a good Lovecraftian game. BUT, the more i thought about what they are doing with this particular expansion the more i like the idea.  The organized crime part seems like it is going to be so much fun.  If you want to watch a totally hokey but fun movie on gangsters in the Lovecraft Universe watch Cast a Deadly Spell , a 1991 HBO movie, that you can find on Amazon Prime for free.  Well worth the watch.

 

Good job on this FFG

So, is it just me, or does anyone else think that cheerful fellow on Shots in the Dark looks exactly like GOB Bluth?

I think GOB has a more narrow face, but I love it conceptually!

This is the best thing for me. I really like if this expansion heads into a "forsaken lore" direction. Amazing stuff, it will be an insta buy for me!

I love Shots in the Dark!  There's been complaints that Influence & Will aren't particularly necessary in the game.  They are here.

We (Diana & Roland barely scraped through by the skin of our teeth on the last round before we died from Doom overload.  We were 6 doom out the previous round, but Codex #1 (from the base game) is in play and we had a gate burst (Rumor card) hit the Merchant District and setup a chain event in all 3 spaces.  Then (same Mythos Phase) we drew a doom which put the same card back into play and hit all 3 spaces, setting up another triple hit.  We did the math on the Chaos Cup, and there were 2 tokens left: a Doom & a Gate Burst.  The card on top of the encounter deck was another Merchant District & the only card in the discard pile was the Merchant District that cost us 3 already, and we were both 5 spaces away from it.  We had 2 separate endgames (I'm pretty sure the other codex offered an endgame) but had a preferred option which was nearly impossible to achieve, and somehow we did!

Silence of Tsathoggua should have a disclaimer, it's a long map (4 tiles in a row) it needs to be played with a bigger group (or maybe a teleporter).  2 investigators did not cut it.  I look forward to attempting it with a more diverse (and numerous) team.

The new investigators are great too.  Their abilities & starter equipment are really synergetic.  I've enjoyed playing all four new characters, but I need to get a better handle on Kate Winthrop (I think she's got merit, but I had monsters all over her from the get-go).

No new tokens (except for the bigger triple doom/clue tokens) for AH3, but if I haven't mentioned it before the AH: Final Hour has 26 tokens, all shuffled by type at the begging of the game (except for 1 starting/ritual site location token I suppose).  All of those tokens are 19mm 1€ / 1¢ (1 Euro / 1 US Penny) size.  Thechnically they are 19.2mm (someone thought I should have calipers for work) but the Lighthouse Coin Capsules for 19mm Coins (CENTS) fit like a dream.

True. Phil made a great job at covering some of the game's known issues.

I kinda missed this when I first read your post. Not so sure if it helps, but I managed to beat it 4 times with 3 investigators, so, possibly you don't need that many more. Also because of how the Mythos cup works (and yes, I've seen people beating - with difficulties - playing 2p. It's just very, very hard with 2)
