I find using Gloria Goldberg (the author) and Kate Winthrop (the spy) is great. Gloria can see the next gate spawning and if Kate is on that space in time she can prevent it from spawning and gain a clue.

What other good combos of investigators do you use?

Harvey the professor (who can improve other people's skills) works very well with Joe Diamond (who can improve an additional skill when a skill is improved). They also both start next to each other so can spend a few turns buffing in the early game.

Akachi and Luke Robinson are great for gate control too. Akachi being able to manipulate the gate stack so that you aren't hit by the current omen is great, and Luke being able to jump about to gates and ignore monsters is really handy.

My favourite is Trish and Jacqueline. Trish starts her turn with no clue, action-take a clue. Jacqueline sees that Trish has a clue, action-takes her clue, now Jacqueline has 2, because she starts with one, and Trish has none, which she can remedy that on her next turn with her action. Add in the fact that, once a round Jacqueline can look at the back of another investigators newly acquired non-common condition to gain a clue, these 2 investigators together can generate clues fast. Additionally, whenever required, Jacqueline can send clues to anyone to help solve rumours or mysteries. Love that combo in my games.

Rex Murphy also works well with Sister Mary (and will also be working very well with Father Mateo, from the upcoming expansion!)

I dunno about recommendations to use, but I would definitely suggest _not_ using me, as I'm terrible at this game.

Today I just discovered using Sister Mary and Ashcan Pete has good synergy. Sister Mary uses holy water then Ashcan Pete can just claim it from the discard pile.
