When does both token type get discarded, instead of return to pool?

Monsters are put back to monster bowl after being defeated, and gate set aside after being closed and reshuffle when ran out.

I think I've seen a discard or put to game box on a certain condition, but I can't find it anymore.

Is there any condition for this to happen?

There is a mystery that can cause gates to be returned to the box, and there's an Ancient One that can place gates on its sheet.

I see.
I only got to play 3 games using same GOO.

What about the monsters then? Any condition that they might be discarded instead of returned to the monster bowl?

Not that I can recall.

We usually discard them just as a matter of convenience. Mixing them around in the bag every time we put one back is not worth the small chance of drawing the same monster twice. When we do draw the same monster twice, it's probably because we didn't mix them well enough.

Did I mention I get a Shoggoth about every third monster?

There are discard effects for monsters, which returns them to the cup. Discarding a gate means you add it to the face-up discarded gates to be reshuffled.

I think I do too recall an effect that removes gate tokens to the box, though... Edit: And Cam already pointed out it was a Mystery. Yay for comprehension blush.

What do you use for a monster cup? Perhaps you need something that does a better job of mixing the tokens...

I've had one game when I seemed to spawn cultists all the time (or other easier monsters) and another game where I kept drawing the worst of the worst. I think my bag is slightly too small to mix properly though I just need to be more careful.

I think some may not quite understand the nature of randomness.
