Hi all,

I just bought AH and I'm giving my first steps and so far I'm loving it, but I have a question about the max monsters in the board.

The rules say the max is (# players) + 3. Is this the number of physical players or investigators?

If I'm playing alone with 2 or 3 investigators is my max 5 or 6 respectively or always 4?

PS: same question for number of monsters in the outskirts.

Thanks!

Always count Investigators not players.

I don't have the rules in front of me to tell you exact number though.

I was doing that, but I wasn't sure!

Thanks a lot!

For all such rules, the game assumes that 1 player = 1 investigator.

So if you're playing 3 investigators by yourself, the max on the board is still 6.


Edit: ninja'd once again!

If you have enough spare, one tip i learnt and it's great, is if you have enough spare player token holders get that amount and put them on the table to use for monsters.

You can se both sides easily but crucially you automatically know when you've hit your limit.


Btw, the thing I hate about the manual is it seems to switch meaning for 'location' and 'discard' a lot.
