I drew an otherworld event that automatically closes the gate i entered through. I suppose I can't seal it in this case, but do I claim the gate as a trophy?

Thanks!

As I understand, the upcoming FAQ will clarify this situation, and will probably be a slightly different answer.

Until then, read the card carefully. Some (most, I think) will say 'you close the gate' or 'then close the gate behind you' or some variation where it is instructing you to close the gate. In this case you would get a trophy. In our group, we also allow paying clues to seal at this time, I believe the FAQ will not allow this.

If the card says something to the effect of 'the gate closes behind you' or 'the gate is closed' or some other statement of fact that is not an instruction to you, then you would not get the trophy.

I don't have specific examples one way or the other, I'm afraid, I'm nowhere near my physical copy.

And we'll all have to reassess our game play and relearn the game all over again.

Sadly, I predict it still won't stop hordes of n00bs asking rules questions, majority of which are answered by following the Core Rule of Thumb of Arkham Horror:

FOLLOW THE PHASES goo .
