Hopefully this will help some of you guys out when you play Ithaqua, as it caused some serious confusion during last night's game. Check out this mystery:



The problem is, you can't get any clues by exploring Hyberborea, only eldritch tokens. This makes the mystery (as written) unsolvable. We took it to actually mean eldritch and solved it using that, but we wasted a couple of turns banking clue tokens just in case we had to spend them during the Hyberborea encounters.

For reference, here's an Exploring Hyperborea card:

I'm so glad this has been bought to my attention before playing the game. I would probably have spent far too long being confused by this!

Yeah, looks like the Mystery card should say Eldritch Tokens and not Clues.

Any ideas on how to submit it to FFG for review?

Probably just submit it through customer support on their site. I'm sure it will be in the FAQ.

There is also a city encounter that mentions Pursuit-condition. Should be Hunted I quess.

Hunted is a Pursuit condition. It's the type, like some assets have the Weapon type vs. the Tome type, etc. My guess is they plan to add more Pursuit type conditions in the future.

Yeah, like Zach said above, this is one element of EH design which is objectively better than Arkham's -- where Arkham put specifics on their cards, making expansion additions only relevant when cards were drawn from that specific expansion, Eldritch future proofs themselves by making general references.

Very smart on FFG's part, and one of the few places I can say the game is objectively better (though not the only).

Oh, that's true. It was my first play with the expansion, too excited to notice everything.

After the very high standard set by the base game and first expansion it's a pity to see an obvious mistake like this. Still waiting for my copy and hope this is an isolated case.

There were also a couple of misprints in the base game as well. I corrected those with paste-ups and will do the same with these.

Could you list (or link to) the corrections for the base game? Thanks.

They are on the FAQ - you can get it on the FFG site and I think it's in the file or link section here as well. There was the Mi-Go Brain Case artifact, Shub Awakens, et. al.
