If you are at Max threat, are you allowed to play hero cards that increase your threat?

- Or in the case of Abbey's Coffers, if you are at Max threat, you cannot then add 1 threat after you kill a Grubber for instance, correct?

Yes. Threat can't go higher than 10, but you can still play cards that make you gain threat. Be aware, though, that even 1 threat penalty can bring down a party pretty quickly...

I can imagine that if you already had a threat level sitting at 10 and had some sweet move you could pull of clear the board that would be ok, but I really try to avoid letting my heroes threat climb to high. Those threat penalties are nasty.

yeah threat penalties are brutal. I even think twice about getting it up to 8 because some darkness cards will lower it to that.

Yeah, and many Threat penalty results last for the whole act/adventure.

Yeah, we played last night with the core game's Terror Darkness deck and I ended my turn with 9 Threat. We were early in the game so we'd only drawn a couple Darkness cards by that point, one of which was one of the "for this Darkness cycle treat the Threat Penalty at 8 instead of 10" cards. Naturally we drew the other one with the next card.

We then suffered x2 Activations for the rest of the Act. It was rough, but we survived. Barely.
