I finally bought this, I have been playing the app for a long time. I was surprised to see a few differences. The big one being able to replace investigators. Do you not lose until all 16 investigators have been devoured? Or can you not replace them after the ancient one awakens?

I honestly can't see myself playing with replacing investigators at all though. I like the idea of a final battle, but in the app you lose when all investigators are devoured or the ancient one awakens.

Every time an investigator is devoured, a doom token is added to the doom track. Also, investigatorts dying during final battle add a doom token, but are not replaced, and they must still advance the clock as if they were still alive.

I'd suggest to give the rulebook a second, quick read to fix all the differences between the cardboard and the digital version of the game: there are a few, and significant.

This said, the core game is rather easy, and some players enjoy as houserule to not replace devoured-before-final-battle investigators

I understood the rulebook, just missed the one line on the last page.
