Another neophyte question

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I just bought 2 core sets. I was hoping for some advice on the best faction combinations for beginners. I've got friends coming over today to try it out. I've read a lot about mixing human and monster decks together, but I needed to know which combos are the best. Thanks

Hi worldeater33

 

When my girlfriend and I started with the core set, we used the following combinations:

 

Syndicate + Yog-Sothoth - for dodginess and mystical action

 

Hastur + Miskatonic - for those all-important investigation icons and some nasty insanity effects

 

Cthulhu + Shub (or Agency) - for lots of terror and destruction

 

and then we shuffled in the neutrals or hand-picked the particular ones that we liked.

 

Hope that helps. And watch out for that Ravager from the Deep (in the Cthulhu deck) - he's a nuisance.

 

Best wishes

I recommend just trying various mixtures to get some sense of the characters.  Just dont' be concerned if one pairing seems to be more powerful than another - at this point you are just trying out different things and learning how to play the game.

 

I remember that when I played my first game I thought Insanity was way too powerful...  took a few games until I got a better sense of the balance and how it all worked.
