    I've put together a deck for a second try at soloing Dunwich (my first attempt stalled). I really, really want to play Carcosa but can't justify buying the entire path without playing what I have first.

    EH is one of my favorite board games, but out of my normal group of players only me and one friend enjoy being the underdogs. Why don't people enjoy slowly going insane and fighting horrors from beyond reality?

    That guardian might be fantastic for Solo play.

    Also a new article up talking about the creation of the new Survivor, Calvin Wright.

    Dunwich update:

    Just got Essex County'd, and suffered two mental trauma as Roland. (Got eliminated by horror damage, and then had Cover Up in play fire. Although... honestly, by how that adventure ends with a failure, I think that got cover up'd fairly well?)

    I like that the pain train that is the Essex County Express is almost becoming its own meme. That scenario does not fuck around.

    I mean, FFS.
    We were actually doing really well... up until the Engine. I was the one that entered the Engine. The other two players had already gone, and were in the passenger car before it.

    I barely dodge the event on entering it with the steam demon, burning a bunch of cards to do so.

    I get the Engine that has the "draw three cards." I get the Grappling demon, a cultist (who gets a doom counter), and a arcane barrier, slamming the door to the Engine shut.

    Two of the players end up drawing Mythos cards that put doom on the track, causing the two passenger cars they're in to fall into the rift, leaving me alone to fight the monsters.

    And then I take two horror the next round from a Mythos card to knock me out.

    Worst. Train. Ever.

    What was worse was the person who was playing Jim ended up losing the Necronomicon due to this. So we ended up basically getting a Elder Thing token in the chaos bag for... nothing, since he never got it into play.

    At least Blood on the Altar went... a little better?
    Only had two sacrificial deaths, and we ended up killing the Beast somehow.

    Whew, made it through the Dunwich finale.
    Everyone made it out, and so the campaign was a success, but Roland ended up going mad from the parting 2 extra mental trauma.

    That one actually felt pretty good? The extra-dimensional areas flickering in and out of reality was super cool.

    Huh, Carolyn's deck-building options are fascinating.
    Guardian 0-3, Neutral's 0-5, cards that "heal horror" level 0-5, up to 15 Seeker/Mystic cards level 0-1.

    Additional restrictions: No Weapon cards level 1-5.

    Woof, player through the first four of Carcosa today. Those are vastly cooler scenarios...

    Although...
    ...let’s just say the King claimed his victims... D:

    Ffff, literally ONE space from getting out of the Asylum.

    Oh hey, there’s the new Mystic from Forgotten Age: Father Mateo.

    Seal is a interesting mechanic, since it removes tokens from the chaos bag.

    Mateo looks like a really fun and unique investigator.

    I suppose the OP not being in chronological order is thematic. Having not played Arkham Horror for years, I'm wondering what to do with it. Its taking up a lot of shelf space.

    No, it's because I was grouping the "Flagship" games first and foremost.

    I guess I should update the OP to include the new video game coming.
