Hi all,

Just received my copy of this today, I was wondering if there was any significance to the numbers on the bottom of the minis?

are they the same number on each bottom or do they look sequential in relation to each other?

Different numbers, not sequential, some repeated some missing.

From the Dungeons and Dragons 80's cartoon. If only it was remade...

It is a riddle. You need to solve it to stop the awakening of an Old One!goo

My uneducated guess would be that it would identify the machine/factory/minion/whatever that produced that mini. If they get lots of problem reports with #13, they'll know which one to repair/close/fire.

Think I preferred gorondil's explanation better

I have the same issue with my copy of the game. I wonder why they imprinted the numbers - maybe a later expansion will make use of these numbers?

I am also curious. I thought the Cultists were numbered sequentially. However, the Shoggoths were numbered 01, 01, and 05.

My most recent guess is that it relates to the injection moulding machine that creates them (or more specifically the mould). So if they are getting lots of complaints about minis (poor quality, broken, issues with the mould etc) they can check to see if its all from the same mould then go and check that one.

Of course, some of them could be 90s. Perhaps all of them. I have a strange feeling that in Timbuktu I may find the answer. I have made arrangements to work my passage on the next packet steamer to Dakar, where an old Bedouin has promised to act as my guide. All he asked in exchange is some meaningless old book that I bought for sixpence in a curious bookshop I happened upon while working as a diplomatic attaché in Jakarta.
