I've always loved the story, The Curious Case of Charles Dexter Ward. This variant includes a scenario that allows players to investigate Charles and destroy Joseph Curwen if he is resurrected. I craved an expansion for the game that does not require mixing custom cards into existing decks, yet adds plenty of theme. I hope that this variant accomplishes the task.
The variant includes the following (in one pdf):
- 8 Paxtuxet Bungalow Location Cards
- 18 Essential Saltes Investigation Cards
- 1 Essential Saltes board (with a tracking meter, a location, and a chart)
- 1 Scenario card.
Simply print the cards, fold in half, and glue together.
I've put the Essential Saltes cards up on PrinterStudio http://www.printerstudio.com/sell/sell_render_design.aspx?ty...
All of the rules, meters, and tracking components have been converted in a way that they fit on the cards and have been included in the set. Everything needed to play this expansion is included... no cutting, gluing, or assembling is required!
In the PrinterStudio versions, I've created my own art for the cards so that Fantasy Flight card back scans aren't included. This shouldn't be an issue since none of the cards are shuffled into existing decks. I also added one additional rule that permits you to encounter a second Pawtuxet Village Bungalo card each turn (by spending a clue). This helps prevent a situation where the torture chamber ends up on the bottom of the deck (thereby making it almost impossible to reach before losing the game).
