Yesterday my game was progressing quite smoothly until we got "The Terrible Experiment" Mythos card.


We were playing with two investigators and immediately tried to go to the Miskatonic University and try to fight the monsters off but some were just too powerful to deal with.

One of the investigators ended up in the hospital and after a while we realized it might have just been better to let the monsters pile up on the card and to have the terror level raised to 10 and all those monsters on the board instead of trying to fight them off.

What are some strategies to deal with this card?

    I definitely don't think this is opinion based; I have re-worded the last sentence to remove the appearance of an opinion-based question. – GendoIkari Oct 29 '19 at 16:23

    Player count is going to have a pretty big effect on how to deal with the card, 2 players is going to be tough, but with 4 or 5 it becomes easier. Strategies might help, but some of the cards are just plain unbalanced at lower player counts. – Ginji Oct 30 '19 at 13:52
