Version 1.6.7: a major release

By Nicolas

Many improvements, like separate Game Boxes, a newer menu and the Kingsport Horror expansion.

A few details that might need explaining:

  • You can set the number of player by right clicking on the text, the limits will adjust as per the standard game rules.
  • If you need to remove a Seal (Elder Sign) counter, please drag it offboard or the count will not change.

About the turn counter:

a) First set the active players in the menu before you start the game (right click > Configure > ... > Configure active player)

b) Then when you hit the Mythos phase, configure the first player in the same menu to the next player. This way, when you hit next, it will go back to Turn +1, Upkeep, First Player...

c) Last, only the Location decks are set to Auto Shuffle, for the other one, just shuffle manually before starting a game ... and any time you would in a normal game.

Version 1.0 Alternate

By Denny crane

Another version of an Arkham Horror module. I noticed that one had been posted recently, but I think this one works a lot better in some ways. As with the other module, the card text is blank for all items and spells, which will hopefully be acceptable.

Innsmouth expansion for alternate Arkham Horror module added
