We've compiled some frequently asked questions from those of you who have received the game. You can visit linkfox.io/GHcardlist to see a list of all the cards as well.
So the laser drones were included just to remove the old passive ability? Why do I have copies of Laser Drones in Gothic Horrors?
Laser drones had redundant text so we provided new ones since we fixed this in the reprint. We included them in Gothic Horrors because only backers from the first Kickstarter would have been affected so this was a way to ensure they got the corrected cards. If you're a rookie completionist and got the reprint of the core game, you already had fixed laser drones - so you can dispose of the extras.
Not sure why the antidote was included? I don't see any typos that require 6 antidotes.
The extra Antidote was included to fix the misprint on missions 4-6 of the original core game where the antidote count was wrong. Again this was fixed in the reprint.
How does Rapture work? Use the H deck?
Rapture is H for Hell/Horsemen so yes you use the H deck.
I'm not sure I have the right number of cards? What are the "45 Stretch Goal Cards"?
Check the card list on BGG: linkfox.io/GHcardlist
When would you use the Gremlins/Clowns? Why do they have a *? (Also the crazed fireman from the previous game?)
Gremlins/Clowns/Crazed Fireman are promo cards and can be used as you see fit. You can mix them into a monster deck or create your own missions. Remember this great site? http://amigaa.cards/
Are the new empty handed cards and the single extra ambush just to increase difficulty if wanted?
Yes the new empty handed - starve out the location so they are more difficult. I'm not sure if any missions use the extra ambush but it is there if you find the game too easy.
What are the gas station and jungle dividers for?
Extra dividers for you to use however you see fit. Here is a Pro Tip that I don't think a lot of gamers realize: If you pick an apocalypse and play through all of those missions, you DON'T need to sort/find the tiles and scavenge cards because they are the same for each apocalypse. I use these extra dividers to "save" my scavenge decks and tiles when I'm playing through a sequence of missions.
What's the giant robot mech standee for?
If you were in the mech and wanted to use the mech standee to represent you were in the mech you could use it. We had extra space on a punchboard and thought it would be fun to include.
As always if you have any rules questions, please visit BGG and search the forums and ask your questions there.
Leave us a Review
If you're playing and enjoying Gothic Horrors, please stop by BGG and leave us a review! We would really appreciate it. Having a decent BGG rating really helps the longevity of a game over time. So far it seems like Gothic Horrors is trending higher than the original game which is great! Happy to see we have addresses some of the problems with the original game.
We are working on a Miniatures campaign and took the time to design a miniature for every survivor class thus far. It will feature an epic box that fits everything released thus far and has room for the next expansion as well. This campaign will happen in 2019, but the next expansion is further away...
The next expansion will be standalone game for 1-4 players so slightly less characters but a lot of new map tiles, new apocalypses and new mechanics. We are already playtesting the new classes. It will eventually get a subtitle, but I can say that this one will be a lot more realistic and grounded in its themes. This expansion is the final one I have planned and will wrap up the trilogy. Don't fret though, I've been working on a secret spiritual SciFI successor - really really excited about it but it's so early I'm hesitant to talk too much about it. We are still very much developing all of this stuff and have a lot of artwork left to do though so take all of this with a grain of salt. I never know whether teasing these things this early is a good or bad thing... hopefully you all do as well, but if not it's what I'm actively working on and excited about. I'm totally Tom Holland spoiling stuff but luckily I don't have Marvel to yell at me.
Thanks again for supporting Rock Manor Games and making this stuff possible!
