Interesting. Would like to learn more about the gameplay on this one. I love Arkham Horror but I don't know if my wallet is ready for a sixth LCG.

Rumors were true. Looks interesting.

https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/arkham-horror... lots more info on here.

Seems like you have basic actions and don't need cards to do them, and are limited by equipment slots for your character.

Deck building seems pretty free, but those limits make it not sensible to just put 100 guns into a deck.

Looks like the new version might be coop? Definitely has a campaign aspect to it.

They're getting clever and adding solo-campaign aspects to all their (remade) games so that boardgamers can pick it up even if their collections are getting too big and they can't find time to meet with others.

LOTR LCG for the Lovecraft universe. Interested to see how the carry-over enhancements work in campaign mode.

The question remains, what else are they going to anounce at gencon this year after using up such big announcements beforehand.

How about that. I was just looking at maybe plunging into LoTR LCG if Warhammer Quest ACG didn't get any gencon love. But I'm *way* more into this theme. Darn you FFG!!

Campaign mode from the start is awesome. Gain weaknesses, injuries and benefits as you play. Level up your cards.

5 classes, 30 deck size (seems to be character specific but probably 30 for the first characters). Smaller deck size is really good.

Trying to figure out how it works, can't figure out what the icons under the cost of the cards are, seem to match the skill icons, but I think there is just a "resource", maybe you just need those stats to use the card or to play it.

Ok, since there are tests, I have decided that for tests you discard cards from your deck, and need to get a number of icons that match the test, you discard 1 for each point you have in that skill. Then you can make your deck such that you are good or bad at certain things. (the ? is a wildcard and really good)

Given this, I think when the deck runs out you reshuffle.

My interest is definitely piqued; especially about the campaign nature of the game. I will also be very interested in how it plays with 4 using 2 core sets. One more new thing to hopefully demo this week while I'm at their booth

I had a crazy thought last night about the 'big' announcement. It sounded like they might be doing something in tandem with the Dice Tower folks. We all know Sam's favorite game is Twilight Imperium, so how about something called: Star Wars: Twilight of the Empire?

In the dying days of the Empire after the battle of Jakku an offshoot of die-hard imperial fanatics began the First Order. Meanwhile, an insurgent offshoot of the Republic led by die-hard veterans of the long struggle against the Empire begins their own Resistance against the dangerous first order.

So that would mean the factions would be:
Imperial Remnants
First Order
Republic
Resistance
Plus, throw in a couple of fringe factions for good measure; maybe:
- Hutt Cartel
- Black Sun

There ya go; the ball is in your court Christian

It says 1 to 4 players on the site, but in the news article, it's 1 to 2 with a core game... That's kind of lame, pushing for buying extra components so early on. Or can that be avoided by buying the future mythos packs?

It was the same with the LOTR Core game.

Also, it seems that 2 x Core will be enough here, whereas 3 x Core was mandatory in LOTR to have a full complement of cards.

My guess is that they're announcing now to avoid having to compete with the onslaught of announcements over the coming days from other companies. Maybe they're saving a really exciting announcement or two for the convention, but they're likely spending the bulk of it now.

I hope you don't need more than one core box to play. I'm out if you do. I hate games that don't come with enough in the box to play.
