Headline: "Dexter Drake's bad luck doesn't hamper Joe Diamond's grappling skillz!"
Yig [specifically chosen, shortest doom track (weeknight)]
Amanda Sharpe, the Student - Susan
Leo Anderson, the Expedition Leader - Rob
Joe Diamond, the Private Eye - Justin
Dexter Drake, the Magician - Robbilee
End of Game
successfully defeated Yig, even though 3 out of 4 investigators were cursed.
House Rules/Game Setup
Ancient One chosen specifically, because we wanted a quick game for a weeknight.
Investigators chosen from 3 possible random investigators, after finding out the Ancient One's abilities and discussing winning tactics.
Expansions in play:
Kingsport Horror - this time we tried out a Guardian for the first time: Noden
Curse of the Dark Pharaoh
The King in Yellow
Black Goat of the Woods
* Noden was a cool Guardian. We will do a Herald next time.
* Dexter had a ton of awesome shit, but shitty luck. He raised the terror level on the first turn and closed the bank on the second turn.
* We let a lame rumor run its course: investigators in the streets would have been devoured
* Leo, the expedition leader, was always "not invited." (The other 3 investigators were often in one location, and Leo was in the complete opposite direction - by chance, of course.)
* Joe, cursed, but with grapple, lead the fight against Yig with Dexter's shotgun. Go Joe!
