At the end of Heart of the Elders we found ourselves betrayed...

This article will look at an individual scenario of Arkham Horror: The Card Game. These will be my impressions after playing through the scenario and will be focusing on the mechanics and how those reinforce the story elements of a given scenario. These articles will contain extensive spoilers and assume a familiarity with the terms and mechanics of the game. Please do not read on if you have not played the scenario in the title yet.

I found this scenario frustrating in that it can act as a killshot for the entire campaign; I'm not opposed to this happening at this point in a cycle, but this one was SO different from the others in the story that it felt like a gimmicky way to end.

I can totally understand that. The mechanics of the scenario do neutralise some decks which can be a frustrating experience.

For what it's worth, in multiplayer games this TPK fear is mitigated somewhat by only needing one investigator to survive to the end. The bodies and brains of everyone else can just get dragged along in their wake. Tuning a deck with plenty of skill cards or the permanent Dunwich stat pumps can be huge but doesn't help particularly much in that first play.

Mechanically I like it as something entirely out of left that requires you to play in an entirely different way and value your cards differently. Narratively I'm less excited as it probably could have been wedged into any campaign, and we've seen the Yithians so often.

I don't think we've seen the Yithians before in Arkham Horror LCG have we? Maybe I've forgotten something.

The same Agents of Yog set shows up several times in Dunwich. I guess it feels more diffuse since they haven’t appeared in the two campaigns since, but the core Agents of Shub and Cthulhu sets have appeared in one scenario total in that same time.
