Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Echoes of the Past, the first Mythos Pack in The Path to Carcosa cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game!

The King in Yellow has come to Arkham, you caught the performance, you found yourself drawn into a maddening series of events, and now—however hard you might try—you cannot erase them from your mind. Nor can you ignore the play’s sinister history of disappearances, suicides, delusions, and insanity.

There are powerful forces at work. Of that you can be sure, but there’s very little else of which you can still be certain. The things you’ve witnessed are things no man nor woman should ever see. And the world seems to have shifted all around you, leaving you adrift, washed along by a current running swiftly into a sea of madness.

Where do you go from here? The more you investigate, the greater the odds you’ll challenge your limited sanity. But if you don’t pursue the leads you’ve already uncovered, would you be inviting a new doom to Arkham? And why has this play come from Paris to Arkham in the first place?

If there are ties between the play and Arkham, there’s one place where you might uncover them. Filled by questions, desperate for answers, striving to keep your composure—you make your way to the Arkham Historical Society.

Gather your strength. Take a deep breath. And rush into the madness… Where Doom Awaits is now available at your local retailer!

The penultimate chapter in The Dunwich Legacy campaign for Arkham Horror: The Card Game, Where Doom Awaits thrusts you and your fellow investigators headlong into a fractured world—a world come undone, riven by sorcery, and exposed to the alien terrors of other worlds and dimensions.

But as much as you’d like simply to flee—to retreat from the terrors before you—you know that if these terrors go unchecked, they will lead to greater calamity. There are sinister forces behind them, evil cultists who have delved too far into dark magic. They have made unholy pacts. They have summoned unnatural powers into the New England countryside. And you must stop them.

Your machete won’t help you. Nor will your shotgun. Exploding dynamite won’t even make a dent…

Undimensioned and Unseen, the fourth Mythos Pack in The Dunwich Legacy for Arkham Horror: The Card Game, is now available at retailers—and it has unleashed a brood of horrifying abominations upon the countryside that must be destroyed.

Not only must these abominations be annihilated, but it has fallen to you to do so. The citizens of Dunwich will offer you little aid; they are too deep in their panic. They can think of no better response to the unseen creatures that can smash houses as though they were made of paper than to run screaming, praying for safety. The question is: Can you do any better?

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…

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Blood on the Altar for Arkham Horror TCG

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.
