When drawing from the monster cup should monsters that have specific names like the dark pharoah and the dunwich horror be included with regular monsters? Should they be removed from the cup only if a herald sheet requires them? What if a named monster is in play, and then a card tries to put it in play? Is it moved to fit the new request? Thanks!

They should be set aside and not included in your general cup, much like Mask monsters. The rules sheets should say something about that...

Monsters which have the red circle "spawn monster" symbol on their front should not be in your cup. Neither should monsters which have the "Mask" keyword on their back (unless you are playing with Nyarlathotep as your Ancient One).

I'm not sure abut the case of a named monster being called for by an encounter when it is already on the board; I haven't had it come up in 120+ games. Perhaps someone else can answer this one?

No. Dunwich is a special monster, a mini boss that only wakes up under certain conditions (you have to be using the separate dunwich board), the other special monsters are tied into specific Great Old Ones etc..it will say on the old one card or the expansion rules when and where to use them.

Ah ok so... I have been using the dark pharoah as a normal monster even though not using the herald sheet that requires him. So that is incorrect. I will seperate him from the cup :-) I only started playing this game 2weeks ago so I'm still trying to get all the rules right. I lack Kingsport, innsmouth, and lurker expansions then my game will be complete!

I usually don't bother with removing the Masks from the cup before (or after) each game. I just leave them there, and, if I ever draw them from the cup, I toss them into the game box and draw something else.

There are some unique monsters included in Dunwich and Insmouth (Barnabas Marsh, Old man Watley, etc). These are used in all games.

Spawns all have the Spawn symbol on them. Masks, are not as easy to spot from the front side, but all have the word Mask on the back.
