End of Game
We abandoned the game at 6 out of 11 doom tokens, with no gates closed or sealed in 1 hour of play. Two rumors came out (one at a time), and there were plenty of clues for Yibb-Tstll to use against us. However, there was no way to pick up the clues, due to the mummies in our environment (see below).
House Rules/Game Setup
Other possible headlines:
"A Bunch of Brains Can't Save You!" (lawyer, archaeologist, astronomer, researcher)
"This Game Continues to Suck." - Rob
"Yibb's Secret Band of Mummies Keep Investigators from Fighting Back" (get it? "band"? lol...)
We most likely chose an Ancient One at random, but it's possible that Denis chose this one, since he hadn't played in a while.
Investigators were most likely chosen from 4 possible randomly dealt investigators, after finding out the Ancient One's abilities and discussing winning tactics.
Expansions in play
Curse of the Dark Pharaoh
The King in Yellow (we use the new cards from this, but we never have actually had the 'play' enter play)
Kingsport Horror - we left out Heralds and Guardians
The Black Goat of the Woods
* The game began in a promising way, with unique items and skills during Arkham encounters.
* Rob toasts and shows off an actual glass of whiskey: "I'm preventing sanity loss."
* Mummies are worse than rumors! Due to a "clothing drive," we could barely move for 3 full rounds at the beginning of the game.
