Under rating threshold (show) Gaining sanity from discarding basically makes damaging opponent's sanity ineffective. If the effect of discarding is greater than the effect of damaging sanity, why would you want to do that? Attack twice, defend once, sound like a good deal? :D

Under rating threshold (show) Continuation to previous: With the evolution of the structure the total balance of the game has shifted from ritualism to normality, from insane to the sane. Consider the old structure: Creature, Elder, Insanity, Life, Taint... New structure: Elder, Insanity, Life, Taint, Character, Location, Book, Att1, Att2, Def1,Def2, Item.

Under rating threshold (show) The more complicated structure is ambitious and I hope the game will progress, for it has nice potential. But thematically I think it should not leave obscurity, madness, crazy rituals and an outlook where the mundane and sane are the mi-go doctors, craftsmen of sand and dust.

Under rating threshold (show) Seems the game's structure has evolved and become more analytical. However unfortunately in the process some of the graphics and mechanics also cause a mood/thematic penalty. In this game mood is more important than detail. Idea level design concept is brilliant, but the mathematical final product is subpar.. structures, characters, locations.. Brilliant. Creatures' attackers/defenders system I dont personally like. It takes a great amount of skill to produce a dynamic system with the points, in the previous version the insanity system was great. Miskatonic university... Then bulletproof vest. Look at the artwork, and just ask yourself..

Under rating threshold (show) Personally, I absolutely loved the original, but find this sequel to be a bit lacking. Other people already mentioned the old sanity system, but it's just that the whole fast pacing of the predecessor is lost, and that's quite a shame. Also, there are some cards with artwork that absolutely don't match the great Lovecraftian horror setting that the original matched so well. 3/5, maybe had been a 4/5 it is was not a sequel. Especially a sequal to a game I easily rated 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) Got it! some cards are marked with a black star-like shaped figure in the right corner, such as "The Dunwich Horror" these kind of cards connect the stars. On the other hand there are some with white star-like shaped figures, such as "Dawn of a new day", these erase the connection between stars. Rate up if it helped, so others can see this.

Under rating threshold (show) To fill the slot for the great old one, 3 cards with a black star on them must be played. If a card with a white star is played, then a star will be removed.

Under rating threshold (show) I miss the different insanity effects and some of the high-powered cards. I liked a lot of the changes to gameplay, but I miss many of the old cards. Also, it could use some badges. It's going in the right direction, but I agree it's not a "true successor."

Under rating threshold (show) way to much luck involved. If your opponent gets Dunwich Horror early, and you never get any banish cards or defense cards, you're screwed.

Under rating threshold (show) Some of the achievements don't seem to trigger properly. I.E. I just took out an opponent without dropping a single physical attack card, yet I still did not get the "pure magic" achievement. And the "beat someone while suicidal" is impossible if you have enough S ranks that you never go insane.

Under rating threshold (show) For a "CCG" (notice the quotation marks), this game is too random and the computer is too stupid. At the start when life totals are low, the computer can easily own you in 4 moves if he gets a bunch of damage cards and you don't. But he also makes incredibly stupid moves, like using Betrayal when you have no monsters or Doppelganger when your stats are all worse than his. Also, gettintg S ranks is hell early on and trivial later since your life/sanity (and hence score) goes up but the scoring thresholds don't.

Under rating threshold (show) Professor Armitage card does not work properly. "Says while in play get +1 green and +2 red." Instead it works as though it is "When played, get those". If a dispel or something like that that removes green/red, the card does not reapply the +1/+2 buff.

Under rating threshold (show) Causing death by suicide should be worth bonus points. The fact that I did only 14 damage and killed a guy on turn 3 by suicide earned me only a Rank B with almost full life, sanity, and very little deductions.

Under rating threshold (show) This card game is great for it circle counter effect. You have always a card to counter one another. There is some how a lot of way to improve this game. First would be to personalise your "deck" (for that you need to write a bunch of rule). Then there is really not enough card to remove sanity or magic arcane boost (something like the dispelling card). Extending the card hand max + don't always force to play 1 card each turn.
