We had an issue with interpretation of some of the text regarding the mob during our play through last night.

During the monster phase of the mythos the app instructs you to move the Mob two spaces in a certain direction, then something happens to every investigator that the mob passes during the movement. (Sorry, I cannot find the specific text from the app, but something about being dragged to end space of the mob and suffering damage)

Now, does this mean that an Investigator on the space where the mob starts before moving the two spaces is also affected or does the mob simply just move and then it is only investigators in the two spaces that the mob moves through that are affected?

We had an issue where an investigator got stuck with the mob which I guess would make sense thematically. However, the investigator has low agility and needed three successes to evade the mob meaning that he could never escape it if he is supposed to be dragged with it even when starting on the same space as the mob.

How do you guys interpret this issue?

Once you're within the mob the only way to get away is to evade them. They will drag all investigators with them until they successfully evade. That's why it's super important to avoid them at all costs.

I can't remember exactly what it says. I think it specifies who is moved and I think even players that are on the same space when mobs move are affected as well. Someone needs to confirm this though. It's the point of this scenario to avoid mobs. I highly not recommend playing this scenario as it's bugged and reportedly it crashes on different platforms even after fix. It crashed for me on Android and then on pc both after update. Better to wait until they fix it.

All right, thanks... What a bummer about the bug though. Thematically the scenario seems really cool. I guess we lost before we would have gotten to the bug.

I've also heard reports about a bug in one of the other scenarios. If that's the case there is only 2 playable scenarios available. Disappointing.

Which other scenario is bugged? Don't want to waste another 3 hours.

I have never encountered the mob so this is just out of curiosity, does every evade test generated by the app require agility? If I remember correctly evade tests with other monsters could be with a different stat (for example strength).

Most evade tests require agility, but it can be different (and which type of monster it is can be a factor).
