A quick question, for any of you Arkham experts who've got a few minutes . . .

Trish Scarborough's "Pass" requirement reads as follows:

Quote:
If Trish gains 2 or more Clue tokens at the same time during an encounter, place "Exposed to Light" in play.


My question is: can she use the Science Building's text to swap trophies for clue tokens, thus fulfilling her story's requirements? Or does that not count as an "encounter"?

Thanks in advance!

It has been ruled in the past using special abilities of locations is not an "encounter" - so no.

Got it, thanks!

I gather her story's kinda hard to complete, then--you've gotta get pretty lucky on the encounter cards to get 2 clue tokens at once, don't you?

I don't know percentages, but I would say the "gain 2 clues" is common enough.

On the flip side, the fail condition is somewhat controllable too. Just keep the clues gathering going and don't let one spot build up.

There are those who look at things the way they are and ask why . . . I dream of things that never were and ask why not

It's moderately hard. There are quite a few encounters that give multiple clues, without spoiling it for you. Like the rest of AH, it's a matter of drawing one and passing the requirement.

She usually fails when unbeatable monsters move into the streets guarding those multiple clues that have appeared and a gate shows up.

Hers is one of the more balanced personal stories.
