Arkham Horror Kartenspiel Faq A Note from ArkhamDB VideoReview: „Arkham Horror“ das Kartenspiel — Mit diesem Storytelling-Game kann jeder Deckbau lernen Something evil stirs in Arkham, and only you can stop it. Blurring the traditional lines between role-playing and card game experiences, Arkham Horror: The Card Game is a Living Card Game of Lovecraftian mystery, monsters, and madness! In the game, you and your friend (or up to three friends with two Core Sets) become characters within the quiet New England town of Arkham. Arkham Horror: The Card Game is a living card game produced by Fantasy Flight fotomicheli.com is a cooperative game set in the universe of Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game which is itself based on the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft and other cosmic horror writers. The title refers to Lovecraft's fictional town of Arkham, MA which is mentioned in many Mythos fotomicheli.comher(s): Fantasy Flight Games. Arkham Horror: Das Kartenspiel verwischt die traditionellen Grenzen von Rollen- und Kartenspielen. In diesem kooperativen Spiel schlüpfen die Spieler in die Rolle eines Ermittlers und stellen ihr individuelles Deck so zusammen, dass es ihre Stärken und Schwächen widerspiegelt. Es stört mich auch nicht so wie bei einem anderen Panda Manga dieser Art, weil ich es nicht so strategisch sondern mehr thematisch angehe aber Oddset Sachsen Anhalt denk ich mir schon: Ma … hätte ich die Karte nur nochmal. Dafür könnte ich das Spiel küssen. Szenario hatte ich mal einen Ermittler der bis an die Zähne bewaffnet war aber es wollten keine Monster auftauchen. Benachrichtige mich über neue Beiträge via E-Mail. The keywords in this game are: alooffasthuntermassiveperilretaliatesurgeuses. When a card is exiled, it is removed from the game and returned to your collection. If card text includes a qualifier Jorge Masvidal by multiple terms, the qualifier applies to each South Park Online in the list.
Schlüpft in die Rolle von Nathaniel Cho, dem Boxer: Streift euch Boxhandschuhe über und schickt mit mächtigen Ereigniskarten einen Gegner nach dem anderen auf die Bretter.
Die Zeit verläuft im Kreis, sodass ihr euch erneut auf einem vorbestimmten Pfad befindet … nur diesmal sind die Dinge nicht mehr so, wie sie einst waren.
Unweit von Arkham hockt die windschiefe und verwitterte Stadt Innsmouth an der Atlantikküste. Spielinhalt Ermittlerkarten. Kleine Ermittlerkarten.
Bonus Regel. Listen für Einsteigerdecks. Additional costs are costs that can be paid outside the normal timing point of paying costs for instance, during the resolution of an effect.
If an effect that requires an additional cost would resolve, the additional cost must be paid at that time. If the additional cost cannot be paid, that aspect of the effect fails to resolve.
Additional costs do not have to be paid when a Forced effect or mandatory instruction such as in the Campaign Guide, or on the back of an Act or Agenda card requires an investigator to resolve an effect.
You investigate with a base skill of 4. You may move to a connecting location immediately before investigating with this effect.
Then Pete resolves the ability, first moving to the Orne Library, followed by investigating. This additional cost is paid when the investigate action would resolve, outside the normal timing point for paying costs.
Each time an investigator fails a skill test while attempting to evade an enemy with the "alert" keyword, after applying all results for that skill test, that enemy performs an attack against the evading investigator.
An enemy does not exhaust after performing an alert attack. This attack occurs whether the enemy is engaged with the evading investigator or not.
Aloof is a keyword ability. An enemy with the aloof keyword does not automatically engage investigators at its location. Some card effects allow an investigator to resolve an ability or perform an action as if a certain aspect of the game state were altered, using the text "as if The indicated ability or action is resolved with the altered game state in mind, but the actual game state remains unchanged.
For example: Luke Robinson wants to play Preposterous Sketches, but is at a location with no clues. One of the locations next to him has a clue on it, so he uses his ability to play Preposterous Sketches as if he were at that location and engaged with each enemy at that location.
The game state is considered to be altered in this way throughout the playing of Preposterous Sketches, from its initiation to its resolution.
Among other things, this might mean: a if there is an enemy at that location, playing Preposterous Sketches would provoke an attack of opportunity, b if that location has an ability that would alter the cost of playing the card, it would do so, and c other card abilities that might trigger from Luke drawing 1 or more cards would do so as if he were at that connecting location and engaged with that enemy, and so on and so forth.
Once Preposterous Sketches has finished resolving and is placed in the discard pile, Luke is no longer considered to be at that location and engaged with each enemy at that location.
Asset cards represent items, allies, talents, spells, and other reserves that may assist or be used by an investigator during a scenario.
When you play an asset, it is placed in your play area. Generally, assets remain in play unless discarded by a card ability or game step.
Most assets take up one or more slots while in play see " Slots " on page Some assets have an encounter set icon and no level indicator.
Such assets are known as Story Assets. Story Assets are part of an encounter set and may not be included in a player's deck unless the resolution or setup of a scenario grants that player permission to do so.
If a card uses the phrase "attach to" it must be attached to placed beneath and slightly overlapped by the specified game element as it enters play.
Once attached, such a card is referred to as an attachment. The "attach to" phrase is checked for legality each time a card would be attached to a game element, but is not checked again after that attachment occurs.
If the initial "attach to" check does not pass, the card is not able to be attached, and remains in its prior state or game area. If such a card cannot remain in its prior state or game area, discard it.
Once in play, an attachment remains attached until either the attachment or the game element to which it is attached leaves play in which case the attachment is discarded , or unless a card ability explicitly detaches the card.
An attachment exhausts and readies independently of the game element it's attached to. An "attacker" is an entity usually an enemy or investigator that is resolving its attack against another entity.
The entity being attacked is referred to as the "attacked enemy" or the "attacked investigator. Each time an investigator is engaged with one or more ready enemies and takes an action other than to fight , to evade , or to activate a parley or resign ability, each of those enemies makes an attack of opportunity against the investigator, in the order of the investigator's choosing.
Each attack deals that enemy's damage and horror to the investigator. Some card or token abilities may cause a skill test to automatically fail or to automatically succeed.
If a skill test automatically fails or automatically succeeds, it does so during step "ST. Here begin the expanded rules.
NB this section overrules some of what is above. Some card effects make an investigator automatically succeed or automatically fail a skill test.
If this occurs, depending on the timing of such an effect, certain steps of the skill test may be skipped in their entirety. For example: Patrice uses the ability on Hope, which reads: "[action] If Hope is ready, exhaust or discard him: Evade.
Attempt to evade with a base [agility] value of 5. If you discarded Hope, this test is automatically successful.
However, the skill test still takes place. However, if Patrice instead uses the ability on Stray Cat, which reads: "[fast] Discard Stray Cat: Automatically evade a non- Elite enemy at your location," no skill test is made whatsoever.
Base value is the value of an element before any modifiers are applied. Unless otherwise specified, the base value of an element derived from a card is the value printed on that card.
The bearer of a weakness is the investigator who started the game with the weakness in his or her deck or play area.
If a card's printed text box is considered "blank" by an ability, that text box is treated as if it did not have any of its printed content.
This expansion introduces two new kinds of chaos tokens: bless [bless] tokens and curse [curse] tokens. By default, the chaos bag does not contain any [bless] or [curse] tokens.
However, certain card effects can add these tokens or remove them from the chaos bag. Cards with the bonded keyword are linked to another player card.
They have no level and therefore are not available as deckbuilding options. Instead, the card to which they are bonded which is listed in parentheses next to this keyword brings the bonded card into the game.
If your deck contains a card that summons one or more bonded cards, those bonded cards are set aside at the start of each game. If a weakness with the bonded keyword is added to an investigator's deck, hand, threat area, or play area, it does not remain a part of that investigator's deck for the rest of the campaign unlike other weaknesses.
It starts each game set aside with that investigator's other bonded cards. This means each of those cards is bonded to the card Miss Doyle.
Hope, Zeal, and Augur each have no level and are therefore not available as options to include when building your deck. However, Miss Doyle summons each of these cards when she is played.
Therefore, a player with Miss Doyle in their deck should set aside Hope, Zeal, and Augur at the start of each game. These cards are not part of that investigator's deck and do not count towards their deck size.
The number of copies of each different bonded card that are set aside in this way is equal to the number of copies of that were included in the product in which that bonded card was introduced.
The number of cards in your deck that summon the bonded card in question does not factor into this limit.
For example: An investigator may only have 3 copies of Soothing Melody set aside at the start of the game.
Similarly, an investigator may only have 1 Essence of the Dream set aside at the start of the game, regardless of how many copies of Dream Diary they include in their deck.
A campaign is a series of interrelated scenarios in which each player plays the same investigator from one scenario to the next.
As a campaign progresses, the investigator gains experience and trauma, and this is reflected by changes in his or her deck.
Each decision made in a campaign may have repercussions in a later scenario. When starting a campaign, follow the instructions for that campaign's setup in the campaign guide.
After playing through a scenario during a campaign, record the specified results of that scenario in the campaign log. After recording the results of a scenario, the investigators are ready to reflect on their experiences and purchase new cards for their decks.
To do this, follow these steps, in order:. If an investigator is defeated in a scenario that investigator is eliminated from the scenario but not necessarily from the campaign.
If an investigator is defeated by taking damage equal to his or her health, he or she suffers 1 physical trauma recorded in the campaign log.
For each physical trauma an investigator has, that investigator begins each subsequent scenario in the campaign with 1 damage.
If an investigator has physical trauma equal to his or her printed health, the investigator is killed. If an investigator is defeated by taking horror equal to his or her sanity, he or she suffers 1 mental trauma recorded in the campaign log.
For each mental trauma an investigator has, that investigator begins each subsequent scenario in the campaign with 1 horror. If an investigator has mental trauma equal to his or her printed sanity, the investigator is driven insane.
If an investigator is defeated by simultaneously taking damage equal to his or her health and horror equal to his or her sanity, he or she chooses which type of trauma to suffer.
If an investigator is killed or driven insane, that player must choose a new investigator to use in the next scenario, and creates a new deck for that investigator.
If a player attempts to choose a new investigator and there are no investigators remaining in the pool, the players have lost and the campaign ends.
An investigator may be defeated by a card ability. A defeated investigator is eliminated from the game see " Elimination " on page Should this occur, follow the instructions of the card ability to determine if there are any long-term repercussions of the defeat.
After completing a scenario, resolving its resolution, updating the campaign log, and purchasing any new cards, advance to the next scenario sequentially in the campaign, unless the scenario resolution explicitly directs the investigators to a different scenario.
Once a campaign has begun, players can freely drop in and out of the campaign in between scenarios. If a player leaves the campaign, do not delete that player's information from the campaign log, as he or she may re-join at any time between scenarios.
If a new player joins the campaign, he or she must choose an investigator not previously used during this campaign.
That player begins as if it were his or her first scenario in the campaign, with no experience and no trauma.
This section expands on the ability for investigators to transfer from a completed campaign to another campaign, as originally described in the section "The End Note: The standard rules of the game dictate that players start each campaign with a clean state new decks and 0 experience.
Only intrepid investigators who wish to embrace the chaos should choose this option. When transferring one or more investigators from a completed campaign to a new campaign, players should observe the following rules:.
Some card abilities can "cancel" other card or game effects. Cancel abilities interrupt the initiation of an effect, and prevent the effect from initiating.
Chaos tokens are revealed from the chaos bag during skill tests, to modify or influence the results of the skill test. If a revealed chaos token or the effect referenced by a chaos token has a numerical modifier, that modifier is applied to the investigator's skill value for this test.
If an investigator is instructed to "resolve" multiple revealed chaos tokens, any game or card effects which refer to "the revealed chaos token" in the singular should be construed to apply to each of the revealed chaos tokens.
For example: An investigator plays Premonition, which reads: "Put Premonition into play, reveal a random chaos token from the chaos bag, and seal it on Premonition.
Likewise, when Premonition instructs that investigator to "Resolve the token sealed here as if it were just revealed from the chaos bag," the investigator should resolve both of the tokens sealed on it.
Additionally, when resolving multiple chaos tokens, any game or card effects which trigger if a certain chaos token is revealed - such as the text "If the named chaos token is revealed during this skill test Such an effect will not trigger twice if two of the designated tokens are resolved.
Note that this entry only applies when multiple chaos tokens are "resolved. The first time an investigator enters a location, that location is revealed turned face-up and a number of clues equal to that location's clue value are placed on that location from the token pool.
This may occur during setup. A clue at a location can be discovered by successfully investigating the location see " Investigate Action " on page 13 , or by a card ability.
If an investigator discovers a clue, he or she takes the clue from the location and places it on his or her investigator card, under his or her control.
If there are no " Objective — " requirements for advancing the current act, during any investigator's turn the investigators may, as a group, spend the requisite number of clues usually conveyed as a "per investigator" value from their investigator cards to advance the act deck.
This is normally done as a [free] player ability. Any or all investigators may contribute any number of clues towards the total number of clues required to advance the act.
A card ability that refers to clues "at a location" is referring to the undiscovered clues that are currently on that location. If an ability refers to a player's collection for example, "search the collection" , the collection of cards from which that player's deck was assembled is used.
Example: Sean and Etienne are each using a deck built from Sean's collection. If Etienne is instructed to "search the collection," he searches Sean's collection.
A copy of a card is defined by title. A second copy of a card is any other card that shares the same title, regardless of cardtype, text, artwork, or any other differing characteristics between the cards.
A card's resource cost is the numerical value that must be paid in resources to play the card from hand. To pay a resource cost, an investigator takes the specified number of resources from his or her resource pool and places them in the token pool.
Some triggered card abilities are presented in a "cost: effect" construct. In such a construct, the aspect preceding the colon indicates the ability costs that must be paid and any triggering conditions that must be met to trigger the ability.
The aspect following the colon is the effect. There are two types of afflictions that may beset an investigator in the game: damage and horror.
Damage afflicts an investigator's health, and horror afflicts an investigator's sanity. When purchasing cards in this manner, that investigator may purchase level 0 cards at 0 experience cost until a legal deck size is reached.
Most player cards, including investigators, belong to one of 5 classes. Each class has its own distinct flavor and identity, as described below.
Guardians [guardian] feel compelled to defend humanity, and thus go out of their way to combat the forces of the Mythos.
They have a strong sense of duty and selflessness that drives them to protect others, and to hunt monsters down. Mystics [mystic] are drawn to and influenced by the arcane forces of the Mythos.
Many have spell-casting abilities, able to manipulate the forces of the universe through magical talent. Rogues [rogue] are self-serving and out for themselves.
Wily and opportunistic, they are always eager for a way to exploit their current situation. Seekers [seeker] are primarily concerned with learning more about the world and about the Mythos.
They wish to research forgotten lore, map out uncharted areas, and study strange creatures. Survivors [survivor] are everyday people in the wrong place at the wrong time, simply trying to survive.
Ill-prepared and ill-equipped, Survivors are the underdogs, who rise to the occasion when their lives are threatened.
Some cards are not affiliated with any class; these cards are neutral. Generally, investigators only have access to cards from their class.
Some investigators have access to cards from other classes. Refer to the "Deckbuilding Options" on the back of an investigator card to view which cards an investigator has access to.
Some abilities create delayed effects. Such abilities specify a future timing point, or indicate a future condition that may arise, and dictate an effect that will happen at that time.
At the beginning of a campaign or standalone scenario, the players choose which difficulty level to use. The campaign setup section of that campaign or scenario's Campaign Guide indicates which chaos tokens should be placed into the chaos bag when playing on each difficulty level.
The difficulty of a skill test is the target number an investigator is trying to equal or exceed with his or her modified skill value to pass that test.
See " Skill Test Timing " on page 26 for the full rules on skill tests. If an ability causes a card to take direct damage or direct horror, that damage or horror must be assigned directly to the specified card, and cannot be assigned or re-assigned elsewhere.
Any time a card is discarded, it is placed faceup on top of its owner's discard pile. Encounter cards are owned by the encounter deck.
This is done by filling in one of the boxes next to " Doubt " or " Conviction at the bottom of the Campaign Log. Later in the campaign, some scenarios may be changed or altered depending on whether the investigators "have more Doubt than Conviction " or "have more Conviction than Doubt.
Doubt and Conviction are shared among all of the investigators, and they are not tied to any specific investigator.
Doubt and Conviction have no game effect except when explicitly referenced by the Campaign Guide or by a card effect. When a player is instructed to draw one or more cards, those cards are drawn from the top of his or her investigator deck and added to his or her hand.
When a player is instructed to draw one or more encounter cards, those cards are drawn from the top of the encounter deck, and resolved following the rules for drawing encounter cards under framework step " 1.
A card effect is any effect that arises from the resolution of ability text printed on, or gained by, a card. A framework effect is any effect that arises from the resolution of a framework event see " Framework Event Details " on page A player is eliminated from a scenario any time his or her investigator is defeated, or if he or she resigns.
The only manner in which eliminated investigators interact with the game is when establishing "per investigator" values see " Per Investigator " on page Any time a player is eliminated:.
The encounter deck contains the encounter cards enemy, treachery, and story asset cards the investigators may encounter during a scenario.
An encounter set is a collection of encounter cards, denoted by a common encounter set symbol near each card's cardtype.
Enemies represent villains, cultists, ne'er-do-wells, terrible monsters, and unfathomable entities from alternate dimensions or the cosmos beyond.
When an enemy card is drawn by an investigator, that investigator must spawn it following any spawn direction the card bears see " Spawn " on page If the encountered enemy has no spawn direction, the enemy spawns engaged with the investigator encountering the card and is placed in that investigator's threat area.
While an enemy card is in play, it is either engaged with an investigator and placed in that investigator's threat area , or it is unengaged and at a location and placed at that location.
Each enemy in an investigator's threat area is considered to be at the same location as that investigator, and should the investigator move, the enemy remains engaged and moves to the new location simultaneously with the investigator.
Any time a ready unengaged enemy is at the same location as an investigator, it engages that investigator, and is placed in that investigator's threat area.
If there are multiple investigators at the same location as a ready unengaged enemy, follow the enemy's prey instructions to determine which investigator is engaged.
There is no limit on the number of enemies that can be engaged with a single investigator. An exhausted unengaged enemy does not engage, but if an exhausted enemy at the same location as an investigator becomes ready, it engages as soon as it is readied.
To engage an enemy at the same location for example, this could be done to engage an exhausted enemy, an aloof enemy, or an enemy engaged with another investigator , an investigator places the chosen enemy in his or her threat area.
The investigator and the enemy are now engaged. There is no difference between engaging an enemy and being engaged by an enemy.
Effects that trigger "after an enemy engages you" will trigger at the same time as effects that trigger "after you engage an enemy.
The phrase "enters play" refers to any time a card makes a transition from an out-of-play area into a play area see " In Play and Out of Play " on page To evade an enemy engaged with an investigator, that investigator makes an agility test against the enemy's evade value see " Skill Tests " on page If the test is successful, the investigator successfully evades the enemy see below.
This occurs during step 7 of the skill test, per " ST. If the test fails, the investigator does not evade the enemy, and it remains engaged with him or her.
Event cards represent tactical actions, maneuvers, spells, tricks, and other instantaneous effects at a player's disposal. Occasionally, a card ability or game step will cause a card to exhaust to indicate it has been used to perform a function.
When a card exhausts, it is rotated 90 degrees. A card in this state is said to be exhausted. Some player cards in The Dunwich Legacy cycle must be exiled when they are used.
When a card is exiled, it is removed from the game and returned to your collection. During campaign play, a card that has been exiled must be purchased again with experience points between scenarios if you wish to re-include it in your deck.
If exiling 1 or more cards would reduce your deck below your investigator's deck size, when purchasing cards between scenarios, you must purchase cards so that a legal deck size is maintained when purchasing cards in this manner, you may purchase level 0 cards for 0 experience cost until a legal deck size is reached.
Some abilities in this campaign and others are identified with an "Explore" action designator. Such abilities are generally used to find new locations to put into play, and are initiated using the "activate" action.
This deck consists of several single-sided locations and treachery cards. Draw the top card of the exploration deck.
If it is a connecting location, put it into play and move to it. She spends her first action to explore, drawing the top card of the exploration deck.
The card she draws is Circuitous Trail. Because Circuitous Trail is a location that is not connected to the Expedition Camp, it is placed next to the exploration deck, and Ursula draws the next card in the exploration deck.
This time, she draws the Low on Supplies treachery card, which she resolves as normal and places in the encounter discard pile.
Her exploration is unsuccessful, and she must shuffle the Circuitous Trail that she drew previously back into the exploration deck. Ursula decides to explore one more time, spending a second action.
This time, she draws Path of Thorns, which is connected to the Expedition Camp. Her exploration is successful. Path of Thorns is put into play with clues on it equal to its clue value, and Ursula immediately moves from the Expedition Camp to the Path of Thorns.
Fast is a keyword ability. A fast card does not cost an action to be played and is not played using the "Play" action. To fight an enemy at his or her location, an investigator resolves an attack against that enemy by making a combat test against the enemy's fight value see " Skill Tests " on page If the test is successful, the attack succeeds and damage is dealt to the attacked enemy.
The default damage dealt by an attack is 1. Some weapons, spells, or other special attacks may modify this damage.
If the test fails, no damage is dealt to the attacked enemy. However, if an investigator fails this test against an enemy that is engaged with another single investigator, the damage of the attack is dealt to the investigator engaged with that enemy.
Flavor text does not interact with the game in any manner. Throughout this campaign, scenario card effects can flood locations.
Each location has one of three different flood levels: it is either unflooded, partially flooded, or fully flooded. A location's flood level has no inherent game effect.
Marie Lambeau Path to Carcosa. Investigator: Marie Lambeau 0 0 0 1. Mandy Thompson, farsight, solo, expert, The Circle undone 2. Investigator: Mandy Thompson 0 0 1 1.
Jenny starter. Each investigator deck receives cards that represent weaknesses of their investigator, one specific to each investigator, and one "basic" - drawn at random from a general pool.
Investigators will also possess one or more unique cards that represent that individual's specific advantages or abilities, often complimenting the backstory of that investigator.
Each investigator also has different starting statistics Willpower, Intellect, Combat and Agility which will be tested throughout the game.
Players then build their decks from cards in their collection, conforming to the deckbuilding limits outlined by their investigator. During the game, the investigators work together to progress their investigation towards a positive outcome by fulfilling the requirements set out by the Act deck.
However, there are forces working against the investigators, represented by the Agenda deck and encounter deck.
Each turn, a doom counter is added to the Agenda deck, acting as a timer for the investigators to complete their objectives.
When the total number of doom in play reaches the doom threshold of the agenda card, the agenda will advance, often to negative consequences. During the Investigation phase, the investigators each take up to three actions.
Among other options, actions include playing cards from hand or activating those already in play, moving to or investigating locations and fighting or evading enemies.
Depending on the card, cards played from hand during the investigation phase may enter an investigator's play area as an ongoing bonus an "asset" or simply provide a powerful one-time effect and be discarded upon use an "event".
Many cards have a resource cost which must be paid to play the card. While cards generally require an action to play, some are "fast" and do not require an action to be played.
The Investigation phase is followed by the Enemy, Status and the Mythos Phase, representing the forces working against the investigators each round.
Investigators may have to deal with effects or enemies that attack their sanity, health or simply their progression towards their main goal the Act deck.
Investigators will be eliminated from a scenario if they receive horror or damage equal to their sanity or health respectively.This deck consists of several single-sided locations and treachery cards. Some limits may pertain to a particular play area, such as "Limit 1 per deck," "Limit 1 in the victory display," or "Limit 1 in play. As Ing Diba überweisungsdauer single-sided Die Maus Und Der Elefant Spiele is put into play from the exploration deck, place clues on that location equal to its clue Klick Und Weg. If a skill test automatically fails, the investigator's total skill value for that test is considered 0. There are two preliminary confirmations that must be made before the process of initiating an ability or playing a card may begin. When a chaos token is "released," it is returned to the chaos bag and is no longer considered sealed. Any or all investigators may contribute any number of clues towards the total number of clues required to advance the act. During the Investigation phase, the investigators each take up to three actions. An investigator cannot use the engage action to engage an enemy he or she is Postcod engaged with. Then, place the card in its discard pile unless otherwise instructed by the ability.
