The Moaning Words is a mix of trading card games and gamebooks. The game is set in H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, and comes with two modes – Battle and Story – both promising hours of daily content. You’ll get to fight in card battles and have a chance to collect all 100 cards, progress through eight portals, each of them with different rules, and play against friends and other players from around the world in player-vs-player mode.
As you can see, this is quite an in-depth and intense title, but we can help you get through the early goings and get you started with our list of The Moaning Words cheats, tips and tricks.
1. Prepare For Card Battles
One thing you may notice in the card battling mode is that it’s similar to many other popular games in the genre. You and your opponent will place your cards beside each other, and the card will change color if someone has a higher number than the adjacent, connecting card. You want to have more blue cards than your opponent’s red card count, which is basically the most fundamental rule in card battles.
2. Every Choice Affects Sanity And Energy Levels
All the choices you make in this game will have an impact on both sanity points and energy. Energy, for starters, is needed if you want to make a choice, and these choices will, in turn, reduce your sanity points. If you make a normal choice, that’ll cost you one sanity point. Spend 100 gold per syringe (or other related items) and you can get your sanity and energy back up to speed with these items.
3. Earn More Gold, Here’s How
You can get yourself more gold by playing the standard card games. These coins, as we mentioned, can be spent on items that will help restore sanity and energy, but they can be used for other purposes, such as buying more cards. That’s going to be important, as you start the game with all your cards at Level 1. Your coins can buy Level 2-4 cards, which have better stats and a better chance of giving you an edge over your opponent.
4. Get Free Elder Signs
Elder Signs can be earned for free by completing quests, taking part in events, or competing in PvP mode. But what can you use them for? Simply put, Elder Signs are used to purchase premium card packs, which come with Level 3-5 cards. These are the real game changing cards, and potentially useful in swinging things in your favor if you’ve got a tough opponent.
Likewise, you can use Elder Signs to buy new novels and novellas. There are two new novels you can purchase, though there’s a good chance there will be more for you to choose from as more new updates come in.
