Hi All,

Just a quick one hopefully.

Could someone please clarify the rule differences between a 2 player and 4 player game? the more players just seem to make the game easier and easier...

The things that I'm already aware of are.....
> the max number of monsters on the board
> the max number of monsters in the outskirts
> the health of the boss monster at the end....

is there anything else that i'm missing?

I think that I read that if you have 5+ players, pull out two mythos cards per turn but I may be mistaken. If this is right... would anyone mind telling me what page it's on? - cheers!

As far as I know that's it I think. But you also need to close more gates to win the game since when you close all the gates you need to have closes off more gates then there are players.

yes, there is that one. I'd forgotten about it because I've never seen it happen

The most significant difference is the Gate Limit. With more Investigators, a smaller number of gates open will awaken the GOO (pg. 20, 24). The game is certainly easier with four Investigators than with two or three, but the reduced Gate Limit is a real headache.

BTW, with five players, you place two monsters on newly opened gates (pg. 10)... you do not draw two Mythos cards.
