When I first started playing the Arkham Horror LCG, I didn’t understand the point of skill cards over assets that boost your skill value. I also didn’t understand the point of committing non-skill cards to tests—why would I give up this event card when I could play it for a benefit? I just didn’t see the point of temporary boosts to your skills.
I’ve talked about Stella Clark, the Letter Carrier’s backstory before, and how she is a very welcome addition to the Arkham Horror Files roster, so let’s jump right in and talk about her deck.
Following up one of the flashiest characters the game has ever seen, we turn to our starter Mystic, who may not flash as dramatically, but certainly shines in her own right: Jacqueline Fine, the psychic.
Now that we’ve gotten the guardian and the seeker out of the way, it’s time to delve into our flex characters from the Investigator Starter Decks. And where better to start than the rogue class, known for being able to do a bit of everything while still dealing with or avoiding enemies? Introducing, Winifred Habbamock, the Aviatrix.
As the fan base for this game expands, the Investigator Starter Decks become more and more important. In the last few weeks, I have successfully convinced a friend to try the game, but without access to the starter decks, it has been hard to build decks without just suggesting he buy everything. But everything is a lot to sift through, so once again, I am going to evaluate the starter decks with respect to the core set. This time, Harvey Walters.
