June 14, 2017

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.

June 4th, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce The Brotherhood Without Banners, the sixth Chapter Pack in the Blood and Gold cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game!

The tumult of the War of the Five Kings shook the foundations of Westeros, fracturing the peace that had endured since Greyjoy’s Rebellion. In this new war, the Great Houses were forced to choose sides, some supporting Renly or Stannis Baratheon, others lending aid to Robb Stark, Joffrey Baratheon, or Balon Greyjoy. Yet there are also those who fight for no king, but for the people. To some, they are no more than outlaws, but for others, these men and women are champions and heroes—true knights.

Take up arms with outlaws in The Brotherhood Without Banners, the sixth Chapter Pack of the Blood and Gold cycle! As the cycle draws to a climactic conclusion, you’ll have the chance to see the themes of the cycle more fully realized, with new economy cards and new support for the bestow keyword across all eight factions. Whether you’re serving the Night’s Watch with Donal Noye or leading the brotherhood with Beric Dondarrion, this expansion has plenty to offer, including a brand-new agenda inviting you to join the brotherhood without banners.

Beneath the Sands for Lord of the Rings TCG Available Now

June 3rd, 2017

The time has come for a small band of Middle-earth’s greatest heroes to set forth on the next leg of their perilous homeward journey through the hostile lands of southern Harad… Beneath the Sands, the third Adventure Pack in the Haradrim cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games!

So far, these heroes have endured a shipwreck, desert crossing, and an assault upon the village where they had been granted a chance to rest. They have made allies of a small band of Haradrim willing to resist the Dark Lord. They have traveled with these noble Haradrim into the jungles to tame the wild Mûmakil, and they have crossed the barren wastelands, racing hard to stay ahead of the band of Orcs and Wargs that nearly spelled their doom.

Now, as the Haradrim cycle continues to follow these heroes and their allies along their northward trek, it finds them in the desert once more, where the sands don’t just make for long, hard days of travel—they also conceal whole nests of deadly predators.

And when these predators strike, abducting several of the heroes’ new friends during the night, these heroes—your heroes—must act swiftly to save them. They’ll descend into an underground series of tunnels, navigate labyrinthine corridors, and fight hordes of deadly creatures. They’ll save their friends, or they’ll die trying. But either way, it will be an adventure worthy of song!

May 10th, 2017

Guarding the Realm, the second Chapter Pack in the Blood and Gold cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games!

Like the other packs of this cycle, Guarding the Realm follow the events of A Storm of Swords, bringing key characters like Melisandre and Wex Pyke of House Botley to the foreground. If you’re going to protect the realm, there’s always a price to pay… and with new economical options and the bestow keyword, it’s up to you whether you’ll pay in blood or in gold.

As the Great Houses of Westeros scheme and plot their enemies’ demise, the last scion of House Targaryen slowly travels west across the continent of Essos. Daenerys’s path leads her towards the Iron Throne and King’s Landing, but many obstacles remain before her—starting with the garish, opulent cities of Slaver’s Bay. Astapor, Yunkai, Meereen: these are cities that have stood since the days of Old Valyria, growing fat off their foul trade in human lives. But everything is about to change for the Ghiscari, and lead your faction on a new path with Guarding the Realm.

The Land of Shadow Nightmare Decks Available for Lord of the Rings TCG

The Land of Shadow Nightmare Decks are now available for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game from Fantasy Flight Games!

Like other Nightmare Decks for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, the three different Nightmare Decks consolidated in this expansion allow you to revisit some of your favorite scenarios as they are given new life in the shadows of the game’s challenging Nightmare Mode. With deadlier enemies, darker locations, and more terrifying surprises, each of these Nightmare Decks introduces new, alternate encounter cards and instructions for using them to reshape the encounter deck from one of the scenarios from The Land of Shadow.

The result? A nightmarish journey through The Land of Shadow that should haunt you with its evils, no matter whether you play its scenarios as standalone adventures or brave the journey to Mount Doom as part of an entire Saga campaign played in Nightmare Mode.

You may have already grappled with Gollum, taming the twisted creature in order to bring out its Sméagol side. You may have already traversed the Dead Marshes, wary of the bog that shifted beneath your feet and the dead faces watching you from beneath the brackish water. You may have taken part in an ambush of the Haradrim. And you may have already found your way through the network of tunnels ruled by Shelob, one of the oldest and most terrifying evils of Middle-earth…

But you haven’t yet done these things in Nightmare Mode. You haven’t yet seen all the evils that Sauron holds at his disposal.

April 27th, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Oberyn’s Revenge, the fifth Chapter Pack in the Blood and Gold cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game!

Many lives were lost in Robert Baratheon’s bloody rebellion. Some, such as Rhaegar Targaryen, died in honorable combat on the field of battle. Others, like Elia Martell, were brutally slain at the hands of the conquering Lannister forces. For fifteen years, House Martell has held its thirst for vengeance in check, waiting with the utmost patience. And although the Red Viper’s duel with Ser Gregor Clegane ends in tragedy for House Martell, it is also the catalyst that sets Doran Martell’s plots in motion…

Oberyn’s Revenge, the fifth Chapter Pack in the Blood and Gold cycle, continues the major themes of the cycle and invites you to play out some of the most iconic moments from A Storm of Swords. Even as dark events and schemes unfold around you, you can use your gold and the new bestow keyword to gain new levels of control over the game. As new versions of the Red Viper and Bran Stark enter the game alongside characters like Irri and Ser Garlan Tyrell, your vengeance is about to become more vicious than ever before.
