Why dose this have a forum? It isn't a LCG, it isn't even a deck construction game. It is basically like Warhammer Quest.

 

I mean what is next.. going to make a forum for Infiltration and Team Manager and Warhammer Quest?

What do you mean, it isn't an LCG? You better let Fantasy Flight know, since they clearly think it is.

It is an LCG, in the same way that Lord of the Rings is an LCG. It's not competitive, but it still belongs here.

1. It's an LCG and you build decks.

2. If they introduced an area to the forum for non-LCG FF card games, it wouldn't detract from the place.

Why are you posting here?  You're not even a user.

I see little good coming from this topic but will leave it open for now. Also I fixed the two typos in the title as they were making me slip in to Madness.

 

Now here are the facts. 

 

It is a Living Card Game as it has regular releases being added to it same as every other LCG competitive, cooperative, living, dead or otherwise. 

 

It involves building a deck of cards for each investigator using a pool of cards available to them based on their class and their cards restrictions. Very similar to Netrunner's Identities, Netrunner also being a Living Card Game. 

 

Arkham Horror: The Card Game is a cooperative Living Card Game® set amid a backdrop of Lovecraftian horror.

that blurs the distinction between traditional card game and roleplaying experiences.

You build your deck with cards from one or more of the game's five classes

The guy probably just thought it's about the classic Arkham Horror game :)

I was trying to figure out if that was the case.  I think you are right.   He is just uninformed.  In that case it would probably be better to just close the thread.  Nothing constructive is going to come from this conversation :)

I will leave it for now but am monitoring it closely. Will lock if necessary. Maybe you are right and he is thinking of the board game.

The comparison to Warhammer Quest makes me think he's talking about the card game, since I've seen that comparison before, and haven't seen it compared with the AH board game.

I got my wires crossed here. It is a LCG.
