New players here. In our first few games we had a couple of crazy endings where I wasn't sure if we won or lost as both kinda happened at the same time. I'll give both scenarios and see what you guys think should have happened.
1. Met the requirements to solve mystery. Says solve after mythos phase. During mythos phase Azatoth awakens. I counted this as a lose.
2. Met requirements for mystery before drawing final mythos. Again says solve after mythos phase. However the mythos card drawn was the final card to be drawn. So I know once the cards run out games over, but after reading the card the mystery is solved. I think that one was a win.
Your guys thoughts? Thanks for any feedback.
Yes, first game was a loss and second a win. In the second case, you actually had a whole round remaining! Losing from Mythos depletion happens when you have to draw a card but can't rather than when you draw the last card. Note that when you can't draw a Mythos card, the Mythos phase immediately ends first (giving you one final chance to qualify for solving a mystery and snatch victory) then, if you haven't won, you lose.
But yes, in your case, that was still a whole round away! So definitely a victory in the second scenario.
