This comes out today I guess! Does anyone who have it want to share what is in it? Especially curious if there are 7 or 8 investigators

My FLGS just called me not long ago. They have my copy waiting for me. I have to wait for stupid work to be done before I can save it.

Stupid work. How dare it provide you with means and ways to buy games. If it wasn't there, you'd have more time to play your games!

:)

There are days i feel the same way....

My FLGS called that it's there to pick up but we are in the middle of a severe snow storm warning with an estimated 40-60cm of snow so it's going to have to sit tight there for a while.

Good question, but the only way it can have eight investigators is it they invented a brand new one that hasn't appeared in any of the other games in the Arkham Files line.

They would have had to keep it a big secret for both Elder Signs and Eldritch Horror, which also will hit the full investigator complement with Masks of Nyarlathotep.

hah yeah and the FLGS is only 15m away on a good day, but in this snow storm...... shake I texted my husband whose office is only a 10m walk away from the store to mention my game was in, but got no reply about whether he'd pick it up or not. heh

That really doesn't seem to make a lot of sense- is there any chance this person's copy was just missing a card?

If they were, they also had an errant token board since there were six investigator tokens on it to match the six investigators, with no spot for a 7th (unless you replaced the proof of purchase with one)

Have you heard of anyone getting Daniela Reyes in this expansion?

No, and based on further research, the rule sheet confirms only 6.

Seems like a really odd decision though. Eldritch now has all 55 investigators available, with the expansion released this week adding exactly the same as OotP PLUS Daniela. By leaving her out, she's now the ONLY investigator missing from Elder Sign.

Nope. Eldritch Horror has all the investigators now with their last expansion. And it's unlikely we would get another expansion until EH does.

It's also possible they could give her away as a promo at Arkham Nights 2018.
