      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Touring or Permanent Performance in TKiY

7 posts in this topic

So, I recently picked up TKiY expansion and have yet to play it. My brother and I are planning on paying a 4 investigator game at some point in the next couple days and I really want to bust this one out to get a fresh experience with the game.

 

Do you recommend touring TKiY with our game or integrating it into all of the decks? I'd really like to know if playing the Touring Performance of TKiY is fun. It sounds really interesting to play a game with ONLY new cards, but is it balanced? 

 

Any tips, suggestions, or comments would be greatly appreciated! :D

Playing Touring Performance is definitely dangerous, unless you understand very well when and where to hit the board. The double terror cards, the intermissions and so on are a huge risk of having a very, very, very short and brutal game. My suggestion is: mix everything in. You'll still enjoy the theme, but with a more balanced game :)

BenEggler,

 

     I couldn't agree more with Julia...KiY is one of the very best Heralds on the lot, but the Touring Variant will have you whimpering in the corner by the 9th Mythos Card if you're not careful.

 

Cheers,

Joe

Thank you both very much! That's really awesome to hear and has me very excited to play! Honestly, I think we might have to try the Touring Performance because of how much we love challenges. If we get destroyed, we'll play another game with shuffling the decks together.

 

I absolutely love short, brutal, horrifying games! :D

Touring performance is brutal! The mythos deck is quite unbalanced though, gate openings won't be your main source of danger. Acts and the terror level on the other hand... will be out of control. It's both fun and a good way to get smashed, fast.

If he ends up wanting to do it, I'll definitely let you know how it goes! I'll try to keep track as we play. I've never written a recap of a game before. That would be a fun experience on its own. =P
