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.
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.'
In my previous post, I wrote about the pro's and con's of playing the Arkham Horror LCG true solo. Although I have a high preference leaning towards playing true solo, I cannot deny that playing dual handed solo has its perks as well, and as mentioned before, I played most of my Arkham Horror LCG games dual-handed solo, before eventually going into true solo.
True Story: I only started playing this game because my significant other convinced me to give it a try. She had watched the tutorial videos and read reviews and told me how great she 'THOUGHT' the game was, and that she wanted to play it. I bought the game and we tried it a few times. She is a Quick Learner *wink*, so she picked up the rules easily, while I struggled at first. She basically taught me how to play the very basics of the game. However, she soon found that the game wasn't really her cup of tea. She is fan of escape room and investigation sort of games, and she taught that Arkham Horror - The Card Game would be that game for her. To an extent, this is a game of investigation, but I think her expectations were that of escape room styles.
