So I was wondering something. Can assets/items be given to your fellow investigators? If I had a knife that I didnt exactly want to use on my low punchy character, could I spend my resources to give that knife to another player's character?

 

I understand this is the case in LotR.

 

I've seen video confirmation of helping other characters with checks/fighting/etc(usually if your characters are in the same location), but it got me thinking, what about equipment?

 

I hope the answer is yes as well, but can't for the life of me find confirmation anywhere to answer this question. I'd love to give my 2nd lucky rabbits foot to my fellow investigators, or let them borrow a flashlight from time to time.

 

Anyone know the answer? Anyone have a preference for sharable/nonshareable items?

I believe one of the demo videos from GenCon said you cannot play your cards on another investigator.

Ordinarily you cannot (from what we've heard so far), however that does not rule out a special ability or card that will let you do so.

There is in fact a card in the Dunwitch Horror expansion that allows you to trade items among investigators.

Playing a card, to pass over another card....

 

In many situations, that first card is going to be fairly useless. Hope the symbols up the side are worth it, or I'll probably not bother.

I don't know.  It's another card that other player wouldn't normally be able to play, and may desperately need.  I don't think that is all that bad a play.  I guess we'll see when that card is released.

Well there are combinations of items that would work really well together.  Or allies.

While I agree that I wouldn’t immediately jump to using a card for the sole purpose of trading cards among allies, but I believe it’ll be far more useful than some think.

Consider the scenario where a player a bogged down with enemies and you have an extra ally or other form of damage absorbtion item to pass. Perhaps you have some awesome evade bonus you can pass over.

Another scenario, where you built your decks to work together, you can have someone be the Charlie kane (eldirch horror) of the table and buys things for other players, supporting them to victory.

Another scenario could be power combos that are otherwise normally impossible through normal deck building rules.

So, at an average table I agree, trading probably won’t be an exciting option. However, it could be an interesting alternate way to play that I look forward to exploring.
