Had an opportunity to haul Alexander’s coffin around Syria some time ago. Unfortunately only by two people, but sufficiently to get an idea how the game mechanics work. No game which features marriages, murder and stealing Alexander’s (or anyone else’s, but especially his) body can be inherently bad.
Good grief I like that board. It is by no doubt one of the prettiest boardgame piece there is.
On same token, we also had an opportunity to play Astral Alchemy scenario from 2nd ed. Mansions of Madness, Streets of Arkham expansion. We quite did not make it, but I did almost win because of insanity condition. Unfortunately that was not to be though and I was ousted from my activation by my fellow gamer. Not to give out too many spoilers, it is a scenario set in the Miscatonic University grounds where some more or less odd things happen, and to prevent them from culminating to something less than favorable certain things need to be collected around the campus.
