I have recently begun playing Claustrophobia BGG and have found myself playing the human side almost every time. The problem I encounter is - I'm winning. This is not usually a problem for me. But something about Claustrophobia has clicked for me, and I'm winning. A lot. It's making people not want to play with me.
We have discovered the handicaps, and my family has agreed to have the demon side start with 7 Threat Points instead of the usual 4, but I think that the game is more inherently balanced than our results would indicate.
So: What strategies do successful demon players pursue?
- Do you spend the first n turns building up Threat?
- Which powers do you consistently activate?
- Event Cards - worth it or not?
- Which humans are your first targets? (Redeemer, right?)
Please help my opponents! (And me, should I ever get to play the demon side...)
