New version uploaded :08/02/2019 – Rapid (2 cards with collection number #49): The second Forced effect should be “At the end of the round […] directly to the North or South. Otherwise, discard this card.”

“Against the Wendigo is my first custom stand alone scenario for Arkham Horror TCG. I translated it to from french to english with the help of 2 awesome proofreaders, Stephen W “St Cretin” and Matt A.”bakunin888″.
This scenario is a sequel to the Call Of Cthulhu RPG add-on “Alone Against the Wendigo”, a solo adventure written by Glenn Rahman, edited by Chaosium. Several months after the outcome of the original adventure, you explore the wild Hanninah Valley in Canada’s far Northwest, looking for the missing students of Dr Nadelmann’s expedition.
It is not necessary to know the original story to play this scenario. However, be forewarned that the North Hanninah valley is a wild and dangerous territory, from which many explorers have never returned…

You only need player cards from a core game box in order to play this 71 cards scenario (+1 cover card), no need for official encounters cards.
Please note that the scenario comes with a FFG-style campaign guide for special rules, setup and resolutions, you will need it in order to play.

You can play it as a stand alone scenario, or as an additional adventure in campaign mode for 2xp per investigator. “
Author/Creator : Vinn Quest all credits goes to him.

If you want the French version, then you can download it HERE.

My verdict:

Background story:5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
Visual experience:5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
Overall experience:5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
Average:5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)

Unbelievable—-What a experience we had. Very well done, the scenario locations fits perfectly to the storytelling. We will play it again. We could have done more for investigating the case but the time of play was a bit longer than we expected, 4 hours and we decided to leave the scenario, otherwise we finished it very well but we left some experience points. Many Thanks to Vinn Quest for making this possible.

Excellent scenario! Although I have to curse you for some tests and the specs of some enemies 😀 lol… I ran away to finish the scenario (1 investigator), but definitively want to replay to try to explore all the aspects. Congratulations! And please, keep making scenarii as good as this one.

is there suppose to be a 2 b agenda or not i was just wondering.

Hi ruby ! To answer your question without spoiling anything: some times there is no b side on agenda or act card in a scenario (scenario #2 of the core box for instance). If there is something else you resolve the revelation effect and just continue with the next agenda or act card. And every thing you have in my scenario is supposed to be here… Well at least what you have on b sides 😉
I hope this answer you question, else feel free to contact me, i left my mail somewhere in a previous reply. Have fun !

Played last night with four x zero experience investigators as a standalone scenario. Took 4 hours. Great use of theme and the game engine. Neat to see the card layout applied to wide open spaces, and the feel of the Canadian Rockies was good. Great story – both the setup story for the original expedition, and the story that unfolded as we played – the guides and their families, the RCMP and their response, and the terrain and weather. The mist rolling through the valley, and the fickle nature of the river were well-done. Beautiful card design – evocative art… Read more »

Hello Chris, and thanks for your cool review ! I did spend a lot of time and consideration on illustrations’ choices, i’m happy that the final result was worth it 🙂 Spoiler-free answers for your questions : 1 . Guide-traited ally don’t have an ally symbol, and so don’t take an ally slot. It’s an implicit rule i’ve noticed from official scenarios: an ally you encounter in a scenario don’t have an ally symbol, unless this ally is supposed to be added in your deck at the end of the scenario, being playable in the next scenarios of a campaign,… Read more »
