Wow! Congrats Marius! A much deserved reward that it seems you took full advantage of. As a Tactic Immurement will be wicked in tandem with Naomi O'Bannion and House Advantage! Really great flavor and ground-breaking effects. This box is gonna be scary good and with each spoiler the pool of drool grows! :P

Is that largest domain YOU control, or on the table? Also is it just me or is the art in this game just been OFF THE CHAIN from Terror in Venice? I mean it has always been good.. but recently.. wtf man!

There seems to be a lot of synergy between the cards revealed so far and they've been very good at capturing the feeling of the syndicate. Loving the artwork, with art this good it's a shame they don't go for full bleeds artwork across all the new cards.

Largest you control is how I read it.

Looks like a really cool card that cuts both ways, you're giving your opponent a free resource but you're also getting rid of almost any prolem card he has on the table. This will make for some really interesting decisions during a game...

Yeah, the artwork has been unusually good lately - plus I've always thought that Cthulhu has some of the best artwork of any of the LCGs anyway.

I like that the disadvantageous bits (giving up your big domain, giving your opponent an extra resource) get less disadvantageous if the game drags on to later turns, when you maybe wouldn't be playing 3 cards anyway.

A lot of my Syndicate decks tend to really start dragging after a certain point and I basically just sit there and hope for a Panic! or a Necronomicon. Immurement will hopefully give the syndicate a better shot as the game goes on.

Also big +1 for the art. Terror in Venice was incredible and Denizens promises to be just as good

I'm thinking Immurement could also be very handy to retake your cards that were stolen and are being used against you - they'll actually return as a resource for you (the "owner"), instead of your opponent. You could even do this to cards you've intentionally given away control of, like Professor Nathaniel Peaslee (TKatG), to make sure they can't be sent back or otherwise used by your opponent.

With cards like Immurement (DotU) and Reallocate (DotU), I wonder if Southside Speakeasy (IotF) might finally see play.

Can't wait for Denizens of the Underworld to hit the streets!

Good point, stealing back a character and gaining a resource is quite a turnover. I'm getting tired of waiting, please show up in stores soon!

What ever happened to that new Elder Things Podcast with the new Denizen's spoiler? We are running out of time for it to be a true 'spoiler'! :(

This is a good point to mention that we will be spoiling another new card from Denizens of the Underworld on the next Elder Things podcast which we're working on right now :)

FYI, the 'upcoming' page has been updated on the FFG site. Denizens is now shipping to stores, and says should be available next week (30th).

It's already too late, the card we had has been posted already.

I think for the moment it it best to consider the podcast on hiatus until we can figure out a way to get recording again.

Very sneaky Sis'! If you hadn't posted this I would have been giving my local store a hard time for not having it yet! That means it will have been 5 months and a week between releases. Were the deluxe box expansions originally supposed to release every 3 or 4 months? Hopefully come next week we'll be rewarded for our patience. :unsure:

Another good use for Immurement - it could also target characters in play that have effects that "can only be triggered from your discard pile", like Lost Oracle (TKatG) and Yithian Scout (TKatG), to prevent them from ever reaching the discard pile.

Ooh, another excellent point.

So... where are all the spoilers?

I'm used to aGoT where with less than a week to go before a pack is released you can find all the spoilers online. I'm kinda surprised that we haven't seen more spoilers for this set given that it's just around the corner.

Is it normal to have to wait so long for CoC spoilers?
Does anyone know where to find any more?

CoC doesn't have a European community so willing to break NDA to spoil images (unfortunately?) :ph34r:

I like it I like the feeling of surprise it gets boring with thrones not even having to open pack to know what is inside

I get the box so late that all cards are both spoiled and reviewed in articles on this site before I get them. :P
