Is there anyway in the app to randomise your investorgator team?

Nope but you could just shuffle the investigator cards and pick randomly.

Um... shuffle the cards and deal them out? Why would it need to be in the app?

Better question would be "why isn't it in the app?".

Well, probably because it's not exactly a crucial or necessary feature and there are better things to spend development time on.

Why should it be?

You would still have to grab the cards after it chose for you.

How does having the app decide for you work any better than dealing the cards randomly?

There are plenty of things not in the app. No dice roller for instance. IMO they don't need to be in the app either and it's better to avoid having too much.

That's not too say there app wouldn't benefit from some features, like an undo button.

never ceases to amaze me how petty and argumentative fools on the internet are. I mean you guys are not seriously trying to have a conversation about the pros and cons of a random button on a computer program vs shuffling cards are you? i mean wow.. I knew some geeks wasted their lives,.. be sheeesh.

Yes you can shuffle the cards yourself, yes shuffling non-standard cards can be clunky and shuffling can even damage them, yes it is not needed for the app, yes it would convenient if it was in the app, yes a random button would take about 30seconds of development time to add.. balh, blah blah?

All I asked was "IS there a random button" as I couldn't find one and then expressed surprise that there wasn't one as a "random" button. rofl

Personally I do not like the idea of computer rollers either. I mean it may as well be a full app like elder sign then... though the Sentential of the multiverse app has undo and the truth is that sometimes it is just impossible to resist going back and redoing a move after something you do not want to happen happens.. not having an undo eliminated that. Even so i could see how it could be frustrating if you clicked the wrong thing mid game and in a way the entire game is screwed.

Yeah - it's not like it's a free app available on many platforms that you can download from multiple sources and actually check yourself - or anything...

I coded an online applet that randomly chooses investigators (as well as provides details on all their abilities).

Feel free to check it out: https://mattsigal.shinyapps.io/MoM_Investigators/

In a completely non-argumentative fashion.

Is there a random investigator button?
No

Why not?
There is no need for one for the game to function. But realistically only the game creators can answer that with anything that isn't just speculation.
