The couple of things he did different in the games that I played with him were:
1) Gates come out facedown. If you want to see where it goes or how hard it is to close, you have to explore it first.
2) Instead of dying or going insane and losing your stuff, he brought these death and insanity cards from one of the expansions; I've only played the core game, so I don't know what expansion they come from. Some of the cards have humorous effects, and they tended to make people a bit more dangerous in the way they played when they weren't so concerned with losing their hard won loot.
Richard really was a lot of fun to play with. A very high-energy gamer with a great sense of humor. You could really tell this is his passion. Compared to him, I am a stick in the mud, and he's kind of inspired me to change how I play games with my son.
The scheduling was a bit...hectic. Exacerbated by the Mansions of Madness drawing. As noted above, games were just abandoned in order to play. My name was called while participating in the LCG tourney but kept my place out of respect to everyone else who was playing in the tourney (though with the deck i brought I think everyone would have rather seen me leave... ). I got to play Mansions on sunday, so I guess no good deed goes unpunished.
Hey, I was rather glad that you stayed in the tournament Patrick! I still learned some deck building tricks thanks to you! Not that it matters since I told Jennifer I'd break that deck apart, lol.
I think for the sake of both of our relationships, it would be best to dismantle those decks as quickly as possible. Mine has already been dismantled with extreme prejudice. We are both lucky enough to have female companions that play, no need to strain that goodwill anymore than needed. Hope to see you guys next year.

Nah, Jason just needs to take endless interrogation out and I would be forever happy! My mono-Cthulhu deck can combat that deck really well if endless interrogation is out...
And yeah, I hope we can come back to Arkham nights next year!
Sanity calms, but madness is more interesting
