I played a game of AH yesterday using the KiY expansion for the first time.
It was smooth sailing except for one card that we couldn't quite agree on its meaning.
Fund Drive for the Arts:
Mythos Ability: Investigators in Arkham may immediately spend up to $1 for every Ally left in the Ally deck. For every $2 an investigator spends, he may draw one card from the Unique Item deck. He then takes one card from among those he has drawn and shuffles the rest back into the deck.
No single player had the same interpretation of this deck, I believe we were over-thinking it too much.
It does not say to draw an ally card like it does for the unique items, so is the ally deck just being used an an indicator as to how many unique cards you can take a look at? Or are the ally cards among what you choose to take?
Can't quite decipher it.
The Ally Deck is used to limit the amount of money you can spend: for each remaining Ally in the Deck you can spend $1.
For each $2 you spend you draw a Unique Item
You pick the Unique Item that you want to keep
You shuffle the Unique Items that you don't keep back into the deck.
Each Investigator gets the chance to do all of this.
It's a neat Mythos because you have a small chance of a really great item for just $2. Or you can spend some serious cash to have a better chance of an item of your choice.

With eleven allies at start, the maximum an investigator can spend is $10 to look at five Unique Items. This is subject to a downward change, depending on allies taken by investigators and allies removed from play as a result of game results.
