      Got my first full play in. All comments I've gotten from friends is that the artwork is FANTASTIC! I love the Officer Dagon a) because the card art is great and b) because I can easily envision him beating me over the head with his stop sign. I cannot stand getting him in my faculty. Great job guys.

    2. Luke Peterschmidt 12-time creator on March 19, 2012

      Neal. When turn order is reversed, you end up buying faculty for the player who goes after you (so you switch the direction of the turn as well as who you buy for). That is just about the worst Seth Thaggua example I've ever seen! - Yikes! That is how it works, but it rarely ever works that well. I hope it wasn't too late in the game...

    3. Ben Morgan on March 18, 2012

      Just got the game, looks beautiful! You guys went all out with the artwork, bravo! Can't wait to get my friends over to the house to play it. Keep up the good work.

      Taking one of my sets to a local boardgame store that has a monthly free games day. Will play with many people and see how it goes. Is there a place I can send interested parties where they might be able to order standard editions?

    5. Neal Haggard on March 16, 2012

      Oh, I forgot, we had another issue, that I wasn't sure if it was intentional or not. We had Seth Thaggua survive for a player when they had no deck left. Are we really supposed to pull all their teachers from their discard and shuffle them and put them as his deck? Seems like rather cruel and unusual punishment, but that's how we played it.

    6. Neal Haggard on March 16, 2012

      I can't find a FAQ anywhere else, but am finding answers to my questions here (thanks for clarification on Locker cards). We had a question on one of the events saying that the turn order was reversed as well as to whom you give teacher cards. Does that apply to all other cards that talk about handing things to the right or left, or just the turn order and teacher passing?

      Game is great, looking forward to playing our second game today. Thanks and congratulations!

      Going to take it to a local gaming group on Thursday. Hopefully they'll like it.

    8. Angel Baker on March 14, 2012

      Played my first game today, 4 players. We stumbled through the rule book and played things wrong for half the game (We were discarding cards as paying for cards.) After we figured it out, it was crazy fast fun.

      We also had a locker problem. One guy just loaded up in his locker and went to town. I'm thinking of using done of my custom cards to add a locker search effect to some faculty or Pop-a-lock year 3s. The faculty will make you discard (one/all) cards in your locker on survival or something. The pop-a-lock year 3 will have BFF: take one card from a locker and put it in your locker.

      Something like that.

      Woot! got it in the Mail and taking it to Ohio to share with friends.

      Got mine today! Excellent game. Thanks for all the hard work.

      How are things going on the international shipping? I want to get some idea how long I'm going to wait (Australia).

    12. Chris Patterson on March 13, 2012

      I know you don't particularly care about individual updates, but I just wanted to say I got mine in yesterday, it looks beautiful, and my daughter will be so happy :) thanks!

      Luke said on an FAQ somewhere in the internet that the Friendly/Nightmare and Girl Power stats on Locker Cards do nothing... at this time. Expansions may refer to those values on cards in the store shelves, so they're required to have a stat even though they aren't used in the base set. I'd also expect that at some point you could end up with a Locker card in your deck by some evil Miskantoic trick- they're powerful if they ever got into your hand! Also, throwing Candy at a Chtulu lunch lady would just be science, right? :)

      Got my copy today! Looks amazing! Can't wait to show it off at the local comic shop!

      Just got my copy today. My wife is currently kicking my butt in our third game (14 to 2!).

      One question: why do the locker cards have point generation/girl power/resolve values? I cannot see anything in the rules about being able to use them in that manner.

      Got mine today, looks great and arrived in perfect shape. Except I had requested the Regular/logo box and got the KS special edition.

      "Hey, nobody likes a tattletale, but when you're sanity is on the line..."


      Aside from that little nit, wonderful packaging.

    19. John Fiala
      on March 12, 2012

      Locker cards seem a little too powerful. :( My wife got three of them and it helped her to clean us all out.

      Also, having the sanity track at the bottom of the board isn't a great idea, because it's very easy to accidentally sweep the token off of the board while working with the cards. I'd suggest either moving it to the top of the track, or putting it elsewhere.

      I played my first game of MSfG last night. It was only a two player game, but was a ton of fun! I can't wait to try it out with a full complement of four players.

    21. Jeremie 'Remie' DeWitt on March 12, 2012

      HA! Speak of the devil. UPS came today and there it was! The kickstarter box is fantastic! you guys did such a great job. only peeve i have is 2 of my glass beads are sort of melted together haha

    22. Jeremie 'Remie' DeWitt on March 11, 2012

      is there any tracking info on our copies? I live in Maryland and thought I would've received it already. thanks in advance and I can't wait to play.

    24. Luke Peterschmidt 12-time creator on March 9, 2012

      Leokesh Lewis (and others!) Prints were mailed separately. If you don't get it by Monday, ping me directly. I might not be able to get back to you until the following week as I will be at GAMA, but I got all the USPS confirmation slips on my desk, so we can find out if it made it there yet or not.

    25. Leokesh Santistevan on March 9, 2012

      Got my game and in new condition! But have not received my print per pledge. Who may I email to get an update?

    26. Angel Baker on March 9, 2012

      Got mine today! Slight dings but I can live with that.

    27. Laura Bishop on March 9, 2012


      Front office of my building just called -- my Miskatonic School just arrived! ("It's from... 'Fun to 11'?")

      Can't wait to get home from work now! =D

    28. Luke Peterschmidt 12-time creator on March 9, 2012

      Edward, send me a direct message and we'll see what we can do. We have half our bodies out the door for GAMA, so it might not be until the following week, but we'll do what we can to make it better.

      Received my game yesterday. Unfortunately, the box was crushed in shipment. The contents are fine, but the box itself (Kickstarter version) is pretty mangled. Any chance of getting a replacement box? Don't need the whole game ... just the box.

    30. Peter W. Lenz on March 9, 2012

      Got my games today, they look fabulous! Thanks!

    31. Ryan Frazier on March 8, 2012

      Sweet, got my copy too! Slightly dented, but, still shiny. Thanks guys!

      Got my copy! Thanks guys, looking forward to playing. =D

    34. George on December 8, 2011

      In case my comment in update 4 was missed (since it was an older post): For the blank cards, how about making some of them with repeat art from the standard cards? I can't see drawing my own, but I'd love to customize name and stats of a "standard" character.

      So, when can we expect the first expansion? ;-)

    42. Mercedes (Mandy)
      on December 4, 2011

      I also like that idea. Option 4 for me :) I like the original front box cover :)
      How about
      Option 5: include the art in a players mat for the Shelves/School Stores?

    43. tyler dewaal on December 4, 2011

      i like patrik's idea, and it this was available, i would choose this option. As it stands, I'm not sure I'd even choose the unique-to-kickstarter box for some of the same reasons.

    44. Ardent on December 4, 2011

      Just to clarify, I would like to keep the poster art on the kickstarter boxes (names included on the inside as in option 3) but replace the original sales-ee back instead of the front cover.

    45. Ardent on December 4, 2011

      As there was some support for my suggestion of a 4th option on the box cover, I figured I'd put it here as well for added visibility.

      I really like the idea of a unique box for kickstarters, but I feel the proposed poster art will decrease the chances of introducing this game to my wife and relatives.

      So as a 4th option on box cover: instead of swapping the front box cover for the poster art and backer names (on the inside), what about swapping the back cover, ie keeping the front box cover and putting the poster art on the back, and the names on the inside of the back? This would accomplish:
      - A unique kickstarter box, and including the names on the inside of the box
      - The crest at the front box cover that lox classy and familyfriendly at the same time
      - The ones kickstarting the project don't need the salee back cover
      Since it looks like that of the available options for box cover, option 3 is the winner, you could arrange another poll about whether people prefer want to put the poster art (and names on the inside) on the front or back of the box.

      You've done a great job with the game and the campaign, and I know another poll might be a lot to ask for in the last 30 hours of the project, but it might be worth considering.

    46. George on December 4, 2011

      I just found out about this project and am very excited. The art and theme for this game is absolutely brilliant. I'm not even that into Lovecraft or Deckbuilders, I just love the idea of a finishing school where you are fighting the teachers. There's a lot of nice thematic touches too with the paddles, polo sticks, wormy apples, etc.

      One question: what will the sanity marker look like? Nothing fancy is really needed, but a meeple shaped like a girl's head could be cool (perhaps in a paddle-brown color). Or maybe a cut counter of the girl's head artwork… or the school logo….

      Oh, you might want to add to the front page all the stretch rewards you've added. I think I can tell by reading through all the updates but it's not crystal clear. It could help get some 11th hour backers!

    47. Mercedes (Mandy)
      on December 3, 2011

      Woohoo we made it to the box art goal, I'm doubling my pledge to get another box. One's to keep in shrink wrap :) maybe one day it'll be a collectors item :)
