    I spent last night going through and organizing/updating my collection. It's been long enough, given that Circle Undone's finally finished.

    Also my LGS is out of FFG Green sleeves, so I can't add in the AH 3rd expansion. Hopefully they'll get in some this week.

    I know I keep saying I need to do it, but I really want to get the OP updated.

    Bumping this from the deeps since it looks like this week's upcoming LCG announcement is New Investigator Starter Decks. I'm assuming they're taking a lesson from Marvel and releasing new investigators with a ready-to-play deck out of the box.

    As someone who kind of feels like Dunwich and Carcosa are enough story content for how little I play, investigator starting decks are pretty enticing (depending on contents).

    Yeah I was confused by that because technically every new investigator has a starter deck it's just a list of cards from the core set + their deluxe so I thought they were just going to be showing the starter decks for the next big box expac.

    But then all the AH announcements got pushed back because of ya know, the world being as it is, so now I don't even know

    I actually have a theory that they might be making a move to try to separate scenario and investigator cards in products for future cycles.

    At the minimum, it might be possible to make a campaign take less packs to get all the scenarios, and thus might be able to keep them easier in print by doing a bigger print run of each individual pack. Maybe move to the larger blister packaging and put two or three scenarios in one pack? And those people who are picking up packs just to deck-build can focus on the investigator decks, not necessarily picking up scenarios they don't actually need.

    It really sucks trying to pick up a full campaign right now and one of the packs in the middle of, say, Carcosa being out of stock constantly.

    The Dream Eaters has been really good so far. Up there in Carcosa tier for me. We’ve played everything out so far except Return to Carcosa (it’s next on the list). We found A side much much harder than B side, but that might be because of a choice we made in 1A and probably because our A deck are just worse than our B decks.

    1A (and light A in general) spoilers :
    We managed to win 1A without straying off the path. Getting 0 xp for the scenario instead of 12 if we had. We got to write that we didn’t stray off the path in the log, but we already finished all of A and it never came up. Maybe it’ll come up in 4B. I doubt it since you’re supposed to be able to play each by themselves, but I’m still hopeful.

    End of A spoilers
    We lost because the black cat knew the truth. If he didn’t know the truth we would’ve “won”, I didn’t read that ending but I assume it’s not the best victory. I’m guessing with the cat knowing the truth you get the best possible ending, but we just had no chance of winning that fight.

    so it doesn't say but seeing some of the cards in there makes me feel like this can replace 2nd core set?

    but also, ugh, there's so much stuff to buy for this game coming soon

    Frankly that should have been an option from the start :-\
