If you can't, I've been doing it wrong. That same combo has come up on a few occasions in my time with the game, and we assumed it worked.

Thematically why not? Here is Monsters, here is Flute... Playing, paying - profit.

Per the FAQ:

Q: Do cards that affect monsters at Miskatonic University
(such as the “Campus Security Increased” Mythos card or
the “Flute of the Outer Gods” Unique Item) affect monsters
spawned by “The Terrible Experiment”?

A: No. Those monsters are not actually on the board; they
can only be fought as if they were.

Balance for the Old Ones
Makes sure the game screws you!

Did not know that one either, but I never got that combo so far.

I'll be honest, I've never thought about looking for an FAQ for Arkham.

Don't say that, you'll break the hearts of a number of those on this forum who contributed to the FAQ! (not me, I had nothing to do with it)

Not so much an FAQ as a tome of madness.

Honestly I thought this thread title was a sexual euphemism.

I'm sure it is great and super helpful! But not necessary the way my group plays Arkham- any rule question not resolved by
1)the quick reference cards from Miskatonic
2)re-reading the card
3)or a halfhearted check in the rulebook
gets a shrug and the person with the issue
4)does whatever they want.
The speed at which we arrive at the final option is directly related to how long we have been playing (by which I mean, how many beers have been consumed)

Allen,

With numerous players contributing to it, coupled with the long wait time (5+ years!), it's an impressive work...despite not being entirely definitive, it answers 99% of the questions out there.

Cheers,
Joe
