This was the expansion I was waiting for since the base game launched.

Can't wait.

I like how this sideboard is more connected to the main board. From the picture, It looks like you can enter the board from space 10, 17, Heart of Africa and The Pyramids. Like a zoom in view of North Africa.

No Nyarlathotep, interestingly enough. It's only a matter of time, so I wonder what'll bring it out.

Likely not, but the second AO is still unknown. It would kind of sell the Dark Pharaoh short if it were Nyarl, but who knows.

Kind of a boring preview, yeah? No new mechanics or anything in this one? Humm..

Second AO is Abhoth, based on the images shown during the In-Flight Report

Is the female in the bottom right of the picture next to Hank the fourth female, or is that Sister Mary? My only other guess is that could be Amanda Sharpe, but the character looks to be wearing a robe so I'm betting it's Sister Mary.

So I'm guessing you can only play with 1 board at a time ?

It'd be nice to give us a choice for a epic game.

I'm betting two can work. Cause an AO could call for side board 1 and the prelude could call for another.

But when more sideboards show up, maybe a prelude will allow them all to be usable at the same time.

You can play with two boards if (for example) you play with Rise of the Elder Things as the Ancient One but use the prelude that puts the Egypt side board into play.

Or just use multiple boards anyway. It's your game, so play it how you want.

Nyarlathotep was mentioned in the Dark Pharoah section, so maybe it is an Epic monster now for one of the mysteries, like Atlaca-Nacha.

The way Nephren-ka was mentioned though, as either a worshipper or possibly an avatar of Nyarla, made him seem very much subservient to Nyarla, rather than the other way round.

If you want differing results, you can try throwing it at me, through Paypal.

I bet you five GG that Nyarlathotep is the second ancient one.

Love the board and how it's not just a copy/pasted Egypt-themed version of the MoM board:



1) Multiple entrances/exits to the board.
2) No complex location based actions.
3) Wilderness & City locations.

Not saying one is better than the other. Just saying I love variety and I hope each sideboard has its own twist.

My favorite part of any EH expansion is the new investigators. 8?!?!? Loving it!!

For those who can't zoom in: Mandy Thompson, The Researcher

Action: Draw 2 Clues from the Clue pool. Spawn 1 of them and discard the other.

After resolving a Research Encounter, if you gained (only?) 1 Clue from that encounter, gain 1 additional clue.

Spoilers for the Elder Sign app:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
In the Egypt campaign you're seeking the Black Pharaoh, who in the end turns out to be an avatar of Nyarlathotep. I'd guess the flip effect here is something similar.


Reading the tiny text on the sideboard:
1. During setup, set aside 1 Maniac? Monster 1? ??? Monster and 1 Spawn? of ??? Monster.
2. Once per round during the Action Phase, an investigator may move along any number of connected Local paths without performing an action.

So far, I'm really digging the modularity of these expansions...and that's saying something as I really don't care for that sort of thing.
