We had 7 doom tokens at the end of the first turn of a game last weekend:
Herald: Ghroth (2 doom tokens to start)
Ancient One: Zhar
Opening Mythos: New Gate (3 doom tokens) (doubles rolled), next card: New Gate (4 doom tokens) (no doubles rolled)
During opening turn Arkham encounters: A gate and a monster appear! (5 doom tokens) (no doubles rolled)
First turn mythos: New Gate (6 doom tokens) (doubles rolled), next card: New Gate (7 doom tokens)
Considering Zhar is an 11-track, it's pretty easy to guess we didn't win this one (surprisingly enough we did make it down to 15 success before The End of Everything).

So we were wondering, has anyone gotten more than 7 doom tokens by the end of the first turn?

What do you mean by "doubles rolled" ?

It's Zhar's (from IH) slumber-party ability. Whenever a gate opens, you roll 2 dice, if you gets doubles (1+1, 2+2, etc.), you immediately draw a new Mythos card and resolve it.

Speaking of Zhar, official clarification on the whole timing issue still on-hold?
