Maybe a stupid question but is 1 acolyte and a Wizard of the Order counting towards the 6 unique cultists?

No questions are stupid! No they are not unique cultists. There are five unique cultists in the encounter deck, but I won't tell you where the sixth one is as it will spoil your game ( assuming you haven't already played it). The five unique cultists have the 'unique' indicator just in front of their name.

It's a star (*), in case you're wondering

This is sooo not a stupid question. We were wondering the same thing the first time we played.

I was confused by ‘unique’ as well, but fortunately realized my mistake after killing first really unique cultist. I think the problem is that the word ‘unique’ is used too casually, so people think that it simply means 'different'. May be it should be bold to emphasize that it is a game term and implies cards with (*) in their names.

I think it is buried somewhere in the rules reference, that "unique" cards are marked with *. As FFG does this with every LCG that I have seen from them, it was pretty obvious to us. If you haven't thrown as much money at them as I have, I think this is a totally valid and good question!

If you can't find the last cultist, look here :

Spoiler (click to reveal)
The last unique cultist is The Masked Hunter on the back of Agenda 1A, Predator or Prey

Not a stupid question at all.

This would have completely slipped me by if I weren't using the campaign tracker app! I started checking off in the log who I found and ... well "oops". Guess I'm not done after all.

I wonder how many people wrote down on a paper campaign log some non-unique cultists.

We just played this today and had a heated argument over whether or not the acolyte counted, but it's clear they do not, as they wouldn't go to the victory display.

It's also clear that we are unable to win this game. It's still very cool.

"Winning" The Midnight Masks is both nearly impossible and completely unnecessary.
