The first expansion pack for the beloved tongue-in-cheek Lovecraft game was a Kickstarter investment that finally made it's way home. I am very pleased that the new cards don't change the base game very much so adding them in is quite easy. The big difference is that we get house cards that give us different abilities. I picked Hufflepuff yellow of course, giving me the house Ulthar, while hubby took his beloved Ravenclaw blue of Yuggoth House.
This is a game that I have been really looking forward to and it did not disappoint. I struck up my role as Jack the Ripper and got caught one space from my hideout on the fifth day, having successfully murdered all of my victims. *this is where I get flagged by internet police, isn't it?* Immediately we played again, having ironed out the rules from the first round. I was caught eight moves into the first night. My husband's way too clever. We switched roles for our third game. I should not be in charge of an entire investigation, I can't keep track of squat, and the Ripper got off scott free.
You'd think that I'd have more pictures of the game we played 3 times, but no, I was way to into the game. Beautiful game. A new favourite of mine now, provided that I get to be the Ripper ;)
