Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of The Path to Carcosa, the second deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game!
A new theater production is coming to Arkham all the way from Paris. Unsurprisingly, it’s been all the rage in conversations among Arkham’s socialites. But in your efforts to learn more about the play, you’ve uncovered a darker history. Disappearances. Suicides. Delusions. Insanity. Wherever The King in Yellow is performed, madness follows close behind.
Everything you find suggests the workings of something foul, even though no connection has yet been proven…
In The Path to Carcosa, it becomes your task to uncover the secrets of this unusual play. The expansion’s two scenarios kick off The Path to Carcosa campaign with a trip to the Ward Theatre and an invitation to the formal dinner party hosted by cast and crew. But with every answer you gain and every clue you uncover, you only find yourself falling deeper into mystery and madness.
Along with its new scenarios and encounter cards, The Path to Carcosa introduces six new investigators and sixty-two player cards (including a complete playset of each) that afford you new ways to explore and enjoy the game—even as they challenge you to overcome new weaknesses.

Blood on the Altar is now available for Arkham Horror: The Card Game!
The third Mythos Pack and fifth chapter in The Dunwich Legacy campaign, Blood on the Altar welcomes you to the eerie little town of Dunwich. The setting for one of H.P. Lovecraft’s most beloved tales of horror, Dunwich has always been a bit more dangerous than it appears. And when you arrive to find that the townsfolk are all on edge due to a series of recent disappearances, there’s already an almost palpable aura of danger in the air.
How are the Dunwich disappearances connected to the bizarre events in Arkham? Might they be related in some way to The Necronomicon and its sinister prose?
The answers to these questions are more hideous than you would ever imagine, but it’s your job to find them. Along with the missing townsfolk and the secret chamber in which they await their gruesome fates. Can you find these abductees and stave off greater evils before it’s too late? Much depends upon the results of your previous investigations. Much more depends upon your current haste.
Perhaps you and your fellow investigators should split up to cover more ground…

After a horrifying train ride, you receive a painfully cold welcome to the town of Dunwich. A string of disappearances has left the townsfolk on edge. Most of them regard you with obvious distrust, and almost no one is willing to help in your investigation…
In Blood on the Altar, as you and your fellow investigators explore the connections between Dunwich and recent events, you’ll find the town’s missing people chief among your concerns. You may even find it somewhat unnerving that they’ve gone missing just before you arrived—and that they might have been taken at the same time you were confronting terrifying, otherworldly creatures on a train, in a museum, or in the private underground corridors of an Arkham speakeasy.
So why do you hear so little about these missing people? You’d think in a town as small as Dunwich that the disappearances would have left a larger footprint. Shouldn’t someone have seen something? Shouldn’t the local officials have named one or more suspects?
The more you investigate, the more you suspect you’re making a target of yourself. You’re almost certain the missing people are hidden somewhere in the village, and you have to believe that if you’re not careful, you’re likely to join them.

You’re going to need a bigger gun.
As your search for two missing professors has led you down the path to abject madness, Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Lost in Time and Space, the sixth and final Mythos Pack in The Dunwich Legacy cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game!
Nothing can prepare you for what you’ll discover at the cycle’s end. As your world dissolves into pathways of sound and color that extend for an eternity in all directions, the lines between objects grow jagged, shifting. Your skin starts to crawl, feeling as though it’s turning inside out. Somehow, you must find your way across this foreboding alien landscape. And, somehow, you know you’re not entirely alone…
As the conclusion of The Dunwich Legacy cycle, the new scenario from Lost in Time and Space is full to bursting with otherworldly chaos, non-Euclidean geometry, and menacing, extra-dimensional entities possessed of incomprehensible powers. And for those who play it as the capstone of The Dunwich Legacy campaign, the scenario’s also littered with effects that call back to the decisions you’ve made. It is an adventure, a reckoning, and a descent into madness.

Steel yourself for a test to your sanity. Once you gaze upon the face of madness, you will never be the same again. Your old worldview will crumble, shattered by the horrifying realization that we humans are not alone.
The Investigators of Arkham Horror is now available at retailers throughout the United States.
Over the course of its beautifully illustrated 264 full-color pages, The Investigators of Arkham Horror immerses you in the action, terror, and mythos of the Arkham Horror Files setting. You’ll find your favorite investigators thrust into action in a series of fifty-two short stories that serve as the backstory to your next Arkham Horror Files game.

You’ll learn more about these locations first-hand by visiting them. And you’ll catch glimpses of things you can’t easily explain.
With lavish art and haunting stories, the 264 gorgeous, fully illustrated pages of The Investigators of Arkham Horror delve deep into the lives of the investigators from Arkham Horror, Eldritch Horror, and all the acclaimed Arkham Horror Files games as they explore 1920s New England, the far-flung corners of the Earth, and the strange worlds of the Cthulhu Mythos.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming q2-2017 release of Undimensioned and Unseen, the fourth Mythos Pack in The Dunwich Legacy cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game!
Things are definitely getting weird. By the time your pursuit of two missing professors leads you through The Dunwich Legacy cycle to the scenario from Undimensioned and Unseen, you’ll have traveled far from the familiar comforts of Arkham, and you’ll have witnessed things you know no one would ever believe. You’ll have encountered strange, extra-dimensional entities, and you’ll find yourself neck-deep in furtive cultists and their sacrifices.
Inundated with information about “Ancient Ones” and unholy rituals, you’ll suddenly find yourself forced to destroy terrifying, monstrous creatures that are literally impervious to everything in your arsenal…
A mystery within a mystery, the adventure you’ll enjoy with Undimensioned and Unseen carries you ever closer to your ultimate goal, even as it challenges you to track down whatever Esoteric Formula (Undimensioned and Unseen, 254) may allow you to defeat a number of otherwise invulnerable Abominations. And it demands that you find this formula quickly… lest you should no longer be the hunter, but the hunted!
