Use both.

(1) Buying Elder Signs is forbidden.

(2) The clock moves faster depending on the number of investigators:
1 investigator: 6 hours 5 hours (play 6 hours for an extreme challenge)
2 investigators: 5 hours
3+ investigators: 4 hours
These also apply in the Final Battle.

Six hours for a single investigator might seem too harsh on first sight, but I encourage you to try it. You'd be surprised how challenging, and yet still beatable, the game becomes. Much like Arkham Horror.

I take the 6 hour thingy back. I have yet to win with this variant *and I was never truly close to winning. Just played a single investigator game with 5 hours per turn and the difficulty was perfect. I won, but just barely.

Basically, 6 hours is what you call hard mode.

*I lacked 3-5 elder signs in my attempts and I don't consider it "close". Close would have been 1-2.
