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.
After sleeving all my cards from the core box and storing all tokens in containers, it was nice to know that everything fitted just nicely in the core box itself. This was back in late 2018 when I first bought the game. Fast forward to 2020, I was able to purchase all the Carcosa mythos pack and that's when I realized, I needed a bigger box. Sure, I could...
One of the few scenario with the most insane amount of replay-ability has got to be 'The Pallid Mask' from the Carcosa expansion. If you would like to know more about the Carcosa expansion, including the 6 mythos packs, you can find it here. The key feature of this scenario that makes for the insane replay-ability is the fact that you will never know which location you are encountering. That is because there is no fixed location in this game. Every time you discover a new location, you will be asked to reveal new locations adjacent to each other, determined by the card itself. To make things harder than it already is, you cannot enter new locations without spending clues.
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.
Not gonna lie... playing Murder at the Excelsior Hotel, MATEH for short, for the first time gave me Stanley's Kubrick's 'The Shining' vibes. We know it's not just an ordinary murder case. The supernatural and psychological elements are present in this scenario as well, very much like 'The Shining.'
