Life after Azathoth

I just remembered, I don't have Curse of the Dark Pharaoh. I suspect it's needed to play the scenarios...am I mistaken?

 

Nope, you're right. Eventhough it's really necessary only in one Scenario, IIRC. Should check with Avi, he could have developed a proxy or something similar

Nyarlathotep versus -

 

Monterey Jack, Bob Jenkins, Joe Diamond and Mandy Thompson.

 

All gates closed in 9 turns. (4 sealed too.)

Doom 4.

Terror 1.

1 Elder Sign used.

18 points.

 

An unexpectedly short game that took me by surprise at the end. With 4 gates sealed I drew "No one can help you now" from the Mythos deck. Under normal circumstances a very annoying card. But on the very next turn Monterey returned to Arkham and closed the only open gate at the Black Cave. It was the first time I've won by closing all the gates, so I checked the rules just to make sure. All gates closed and gate trophies in hand equal to or greater than the number of investigators.

NIce job, Lee!  Yes, that card is the bane of everyone's existence.  Great tactic in closing gates...that often comes about be chance, no something one set out to accomplish from the outset.

 

Cheers,

Joe
