Kate Winthrop pulled the collar of her long coat tight against her neck to ward o the creeping chill of a damp autumn night. With a squeal of tires, a long black car raced by, pursued closely by a police wagon. Kate pressed herself up against the iron railing of the bridge over the Miskatonic to keep clear of the chaos.
She’d read in the papers about the recent upsurge in violent crime and felt the increasing tension all around the city. As the nights grew longer, she noticed a deeper darkness lurking in the shadows around Arkham, and the instruments in her research lab at the university were responding to some influence that she couldn’t observe.
Something was coming.
Step into a world of horror with Dead of Night, a new expansion for Arkham Horror Third Edition!
In Dead of Night, investigators explore the facets of Arkham best left unseen in the light of day. Organized crime builds a strong foothold in the city, secret cults labor for a dark master, an alien moon hangs overhead, and unknowable horrors stalk the night. is expansion includes two all-new scenarios, new encounters for every location in Arkham, new monsters and anomalies, and four new investigators to face these fresh horrors, armed with new spells, items and allies.

Not far from Arkham, the stooped and weathered town of Innsmouth squats on the Atlantic coast. An aura of decrepitude and decay hangs over the city like the ocean fog, from the weirdly glowing windows of the Gilman House to the deserted and toppling Fish Street bridge. Beyond the city limits, the Innsmouth shoreline is pocked with half-flooded tidal tunnels and unnatural coves. Who knows what strange, abyssal trinkets you might find, among the skeletons of fish and rotting seaweed?
The Innsmouth Conspiracy, the sixth deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game, invites you to take your first steps in a twisting, time-jumping tale, starting with the campaign’s first two scenarios included in this expansion. From the heart of Innsmouth itself to the torturous coastline and beyond, these scenarios tee up an adventure that will continue to unfold across the subsequent six Mythos Packs. Far from including just two new scenarios, however, The Innsmouth Conspiracy brings five new investigators to the table with an undersea trove of player cards to support new types of decks—along with new mechanics for players to sink their teeth into, including keys, flood tokens, bless tokens, and curse tokens!
Delve into the secrets of The House with No Name in A Thousand Shapes of Horror, the second Mythos Pack in "The Dream-Eaters" cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game! After half of your team has seemingly become trapped in the Dreamlands, you decide to force your way into the realm in your physical body instead of traveling there in your sleep. This method comes with plenty of dangers, but it will hopefully prevent you from becoming trapped yourself. But if you wish to enter the Dreamlands, you must first find a key.
A Thousand Shapes of Horror is Scenario 2–B of "The Web of Dreams" campaign. This scenario can be played on its own in Standalone Mode or combined with the other expansions in "The Dream-Eaters" cycle to form either a larger four-part or eight-part campaign. Inspired by H. P. Lovecraft’s classic short story “The Unnamable,” this adventure takes you to the most haunted corners of Arkham, where the veil between realm is drawn thin and even the most rational mind may be forced to confront the possibility of a world beyond the one we know. Do you have the composure to hold onto your sanity and save your friends, or will ineffable terrors tear your mind apart?
Before the Black Throne on kuudes ja viimeinen Mythos-paketti "Circle Undone" -syklissä Arkham Horror: The Card Game -peliin. Sen jälkeen kun kävitte taistelun sulkeaksesi repeämät todellisuudessa (Clutches of Chaos), olette jättäneet kaupunkinne ja maailmanne taakse. Olette matkustaneet mittaamattomia etäisyyksiä, ja silti olette pitkän matkan päästä valtaistuimelta, missä perimmäinen vihollisenne heräilee. Kun kohtalo ajaa teitä halki maailmankaikkeuden, saatatte joutua tuomaan "tyhjän tilan" peliin, menettäen pakan päällimmäisen kortin ilmentämään äärettömän tilaa, joka erottaa teidät muusta ihmiskunnasta. Se ei ole paikkai, jonne voisi mennä tai sitä tutkia, ja ainoa tapa palauttaa kadonnut korttisi on täyttää tyhjä tila Cosmos-paikalla. Näillä mahdottomilla lokaatioilla, jotka on vedetty uudesta Cosmos-pakasta, ei ole kiinteitä paikkoja. Pikemminkin jokaisessa Cosmos-kortissa on sijoitusohjeet, joita sinun on noudatettava. Kaikesta irrallaan ollessa voi olla helppo antautua eksistentiaaliselle pelolle, mutta vaikka voisit pelkästään viivästyttää välttämätöntä, taistelu ei ole vielä ohi!
Union and Disillusion is the fourth Mythos Pack in The Circle Undone cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game.
After your brush with the Silver Twilight Lodge in For the Greater Good, you journey to the banks of the Miskatonic River in search of the four souls who went missing from one of the Lodge’s events. Between two of the bridges that span the river, there stands the Unvisited Isle. The foggy shores are barren and unwelcoming, and as you row closer, you try to remain silent, as if to keep the river itself from noticing. Not a soul greets you as you draw closer to the island, save for the judging gaze of ghostly birds that observe you from the trees. In the distance, a pillar of spectral energy is rising into the clouds, a vortex of otherworldly mist spiraling about it.
As you explore the island, you will find braziers scattered at various locations, that you can either light or douse with the new Circle action ability. Lighting these braziers may help push back the heavy mist, allowing you to further explore the island, but it may also be the key step in completing the ritual that has already begun. How far can you push Arkham to the brink of chaos without surrendering the city to the dark forces battling for control of it?
"All life is only a set of pictures in the brain, among which there is no difference betwixt those born of real things and those born of inward dreamings..." –H. P. Lovecraft, "The Silver Key"
Embark on a dangerous rescue mission in Dark Side of the Moon, the third Mythos Pack in "The Dream-Eaters" cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game! After the man who may hold the key to escaping the Dreamlands is taken by dangerous Corsairs, you follow to a dead world where danger is waiting around every corner. But will you be able to rescue your charge and escape without raising the alarm?
Dark Side of the Moon can be played on its own in Standalone Mode or combined with the other expansions in "The Dream-Eaters" cycle to form a larger four-part or eight-part campaign. After the events of The Search for Kadath, the investigators in the Dreamlands are drawn even further from the world of the waking than they could have ever thought when Virgil Gray is taken to the cold, distant moon and you have no choice but to follow in the hopes of rescuing him. You must remain even quieter in order to stay hidden long enough to rescue Virgil and escape.
Dim Carcosa on kuudes ja viimeinen Mythos-paketti "Path to Carcosa" -syklin sarjassa Arkham Horror: The Card Gameen.
Tutkimuksesi salaperäisestä näytelmästä "Keltainen kuningas" on johdattanut sinut ympäri maailmaa ja tuonut hulluuden reunalle. Nyt Carcosaan suuntautuvan polun viimeisessä näytöksessä matkustat maailmankaikkeuden ulkopuolelle maailmaan, joka on kaiken mielikuvituksen ulkopuolella. Edessäsi on vääntynyt, outo kaupunki. Sen kiertyvät kadut ja poikkeava arkkitehtuuri eivät näytä seuraavan mitään järjestystä tai rakennetta. Etäisyydessä synkkä järvi heijastaa kahden auringon säteitä. Tämä on Carcosa - tähtien hulluuden valtakunta, jossa Hastur hallitsee.
Kaikki paljastuu matkalla Dim Carcosaan, mikä tarkoittaa, että tämän skenaarion lokaatioilla ei ole piilotettua puolta. Sen sijaan niiden kääntöpuolella on tarina, joka vie juonikuviot päätökseensä.
Tässä kadonneessa valtakunnassa hulluus on väistämätöntä. Mutta vaikka mielesi on murtunut, tutkimuksesi ei lopu tähän. Dim Carcosassa et häviä vaikka kauhusi ylittäisi mielenterveytesi. Sen sijaan matkaat eteenpäin ja vaikka kertoimet sinua vastaan ovat mahdottomat, toivo paluusta hengissä kotiin kantaa eteenpäin.
In the Clutches of Chaos on viides mythospakka The Circle Undone -syklissä Arkham Horror: The Card Gameen.
Tutkittuanne kohtalokkain seurauksin Union and Disillusion -lisäosan tapahtumia, kaupungin tilanne huononee entisestään. Todellisuus alkaa repeillä ja Arkhamin kaduilla kuuluu kuin epäsointuista vaskisointinten ääntä. Pelokkaat kaupunkilaiset sulkeutuvat koteihinsa samalla kuin te jatkatte katujen partiointia. Etsitte epätoivoisesti ratkaisua tähän kaaokseen.
In the Clutches of Chaoksessa tuomiopisteet eivät kerry normaaliin tapaan. Sen sijaan todellisuuden repeämiä syntyy tietyissä paikoissa ja kun tilanne etenee tarpeeksi pahaksi yhdessä kohteessa, siellä alkaa tapahtua huonoja juttuja.
Pelaajat yrittävät poistaa repeämiä näissä paikoissa, mutta tilanteen pitäminen hallinnassa on hankalaa. Jos tilanne karkautuu käsistä, koko Arkham vajoaa hulluuteen. Teidän on estettävä se!
At the end of "The Dunwich Legacy" cycle, and near the end of your path to abject madness, Lost in Time and Space is the climactic sixth Mythos Pack in the first full-length Arkham Horror: The Card Game campaign!
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…
Lost in Time and Space introduces a new scenario full to bursting with otherworldly chaos, non-Euclidean geometry, and menacing, extra-dimensional entities possessed of incomprehensible powers. You'll find player cards strong enough that you just might have a chance to survive. 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.
After reports of strange occurrences at Arkham’s most prestigious hotel reach your ears, you are summoned to the location by a mysterious note. You are just beginning to properly conduct your investigation when you suddenly black out. Once you come to, you find yourself standing over a man’s body. Multiple stab wounds perforate his chest and blood covers the floor. What the hell happened? And why can’t you remember a thing? Now as the authorities are on your tail, it is up to your team of investigators to solve the murder and clear your name before you are thrown in prison for the rest of your life. Can you figure out the truth behind this grisly murder? Or will you be the next victim?
Investigators must solve the Murder at the Excelsior Hotel in this special scenario for Arkham Horror: The Card Game. With the clock ticking and danger around every corner, can you figure out the truth before time runs out? This scenario can be played as a standalone scenario, or inserted into a campaign as a side-story.
Descend into the dreaded Underworld of the Dreamlands in Point of No Return, the fourth Mythos Pack in The Dream-Eaters cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game! After forcing your way through the veil that divides the world of the waking from that of sleep, you must navigate the cavernous Underworld, encountering ghouls and gugs, in the hopes of finding your way to the world above and reuniting with the rest of your team.
Point of No Return is Scenario 3–B of “The Web of Dreams” campaign, which follows the path of the investigators left behind to handle the horrors of the waking world in The Dream-Eaters. This scenario can be played on its own in Standalone Mode or combined with the other expansions in The Dream- Eaterscycle to form a larger four-part or eight-part campaign. Following the events of A Thousand Shapes of Horror, you have finally reached the Dreamlands, but it is not as you expected. No wondrous lands or fabulous cities greet you; merely the dark, barren realm of the Underworld. Perhaps those who brought stories of the Dreamlands to Arkham had never ventured this far underground, or perhaps this place can only be found by those who force their way in. Either way, you are now hopelessly alone in a realm you have never heard of, and the only way out is through.
Luulit, että Keltaisen kuninkaan esirippu oli sulkeutunut kohdaltasi. Kun kirottu näytelmä saapui ensin Arkhamiin, sitä seurasi sarja katoamisia, harhaoja itsemurhia ja hulluutta. Path to Carcosa -syklin aikana vastausten etsintä vei sinut meren yli Pariisin loistaviin valoihin ja Dim Carcosaan sekä itsensä Hasturin valtaistuimen eteen. Kahdeksan skenaariota testasivat vakaumuksesi, saivat sinut epäilemään aistejasi ja työnsivät sinut hulluuden reunalle. Mutta nyt, hulluus palaa Arkhamiin uusintaesityksen muodossa …
The City of Archives on neljäs Mythos-paketti "The Forgotten Age" -syklissä Arkham Horror: The Card Game -peliin.
Heart of the Elders -lisäosan tapahtumien jälkeen sinä ja tutkijaryhmäsi olette matkalla syvälle luoliin, jossa uusi maailma lepää kätkettynä ulkomaailmalta. Oudot olennot, jotka eivät voi olla tästä maailmasta, ovat näennäisesti asuneet maapallon kuoren alla vuosisatojen ajan. Ne ovat kauhistuttavan näköisiä, mutta ovatko ne vaarallisia? Nyt kun olette heidän valtakunnassaan, voi olla parasta tehdä mitä tahansa he haluava. Mutta kuinka paljon voit luottaa heihin, ja mitä liika naivius voisi maksaa sinulle?
Tässä Mythos-paketissa on uusi mekanismi, joka tekee tämän skenaarion pelaamisesta kehon ulkopuolisen kokemuksen. Mukana on myös uusia pelaajakortteja tutkijoidesi pelipakkojen kustomointia varten.
The Miskatonic Museum is the first Mythos Pack in The Dunwich Legacy cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game.
It begins with a book… Somewhere in the Miskatonic Museum, Olaus Wormius’s Latin translation of a book called the Necronomicon lies hidden away, kept locked and secret so that those individuals who shouldn't gain access to it do not. When recent events at the university and the Clover Club lead you to believe that someone may now be searching for this strange and ancient tome—someone who should not be permitted to delve its secrets—you make your way to the Museum. The hour is late, and the front door is locked. But you know you must recover the book before anyone can access its arcane secrets for dark purposes.
The cards and adventure from The Miskatonic Museum grant you access to the Museum and its many exhibitions. Whether you conduct your investigation as a relatively simple book recovery or incorporate it into the campaign from The Dunwich Legacy, you'll find it marked by a frightening urgency. You aren't alone within the museum's darkened chambers; something else stalks the exhibits…
From the streets of Paris to the city's subterranean catacombs, your pursuit of the truth behind The King in Yellow leads you farther and farther from Arkham's familiar landmarks. But the streets, the language, and the eerie, dark tunnels aren't the only foreign elements at play. There's something distinctly otherworldly in the Parisian catacombs…
In The Pallid Mask scenario, you and your fellow investigators will enter these tunnels in search of a stranger whom you believe must be connected to the events surrounding the performance of The King in Yellow at the Ward Theatre in Arkham. But with each new strange twist and turn, you'll find yourselves only stepping deeper into mystery. Perhaps you can follow the tunnels all the way to the pulsing heart of the play's mysteries, but there's a chance, too, you'll simply find yourselves lost amid the shifting landscape. What begins as a trek through moist and clammy tunnels of stone may become a journey that leads you under the earth, through The Gate to Hell, and straight to your demise at the Well of Souls or some other forgotten chamber.
Destined to be a fan-favorite, the scenario from The Pallid Mask utilizes the game's locations in a novel way, bringing them into play only as you travel through them, and arranging them in a constantly shifting and unpredictable fashion. Each new step through these labyrinths could be your last.
Journey across the dreamlands in The Search for Kadath, the first Mythos Pack in The Dream-Eaters cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game! After taking your first steps into the Dreamlands, your mind teems with anxiety over the quest ahead, dangers you left in the waking world, and the fate of dreamers who have come before you. Are they also somewhere in these expansive lands? Perhaps if you find the lost castle and return with proof of the Dreamlands, you can save everyone: yourself, your friends, and the other dreamers as well. So, despite the advice of the Dreamlands’ inhabitants, you and your companions seek unknown Kadath, where the gods dwell.
The Search for Kadath is Scenario 2–A of The Dream-Quest. This scenario can be played on its own in Standalone Mode or combined with the other expansions in The Dream-Eaters cycle to form a larger four-part or eight-part campaign. As your team of investigators becomes separated between the dream and the waking worlds, you will need to work together across realms to earn victory and return home. To help you achieve this, you will find new player cards that create new synergies between investigators, letting you offer aid during your turns or even the Mythos Phase. Discover the meaning behind your dreams and discover the proof you seek!
Näin oli aina tarkoitus tapahtua ... olet lopulta matkalla mielisairaalaan.
The Unspeakable Oath on toinen Mythos-paketti "Path to Carcosa" -sykliin. Se vie sinut Arkhamin mielisairaalan syvyyksiin. Löydät itsesi lukittujen ovien takana, epäonnistuneena ja sekopäiden ympäröimänä. Ja silti, saat vihjeitä vielä syvemmästä ja synkemmästä salaisuudesta.
Skenaario syventää pelin ulottuvuuksia perinteisen roolipelin ja korttipelikokemuksen välillä. Kaksikymmentäneljä pelaajakorttia (kaksi kopiota kahdestatoista erilaisesta kortista) antaa sinulle pääsyn useisiin varakkaisiin suojelijoihin ja antaa mahdollisuuden "oppia" virheistä.
Union and Disillusion on neljäs Mythos-paketti Circle Undone -syklissä Arkham Horror: The Card Game -peliin.
Oltuanne tekemisissä Silver Twilight Lodgen kanssa For the Greater Good -tarinassa, matkaatte Miskatonic-joen rannoille etsimään neljää sielua, jotka katosivat yhdestä Lodgen järjestämästä tapahtumasta. Kahden joen ylittävän sillan välissä on Unvisited Isle. Sumuiset rannat ovat karuja ja epämiellyttäviä, ja kun siirrytte lähemmäksi, yritätte olla hiljaa, ikään kuin ette haluaisi joen itsensä huomaavan teitä. Missään ei näy sieluakaan tullessanne lähemmäksi saarta. Kaukana edessä spektraalienergian pylväs nousee pilviin ja sitä ympäröi yliluonnollinen sumupyörre
Tutkiessanne saarta, löydätte eri paikkoihin hajalleen sijoitettuja rituaalihiilipannuja, joita voitte joko sytyttää tai sammuttaa uuden Circle-toimintakyvyn avulla. Näiden pannujen valaistus voi auttaa voimakasta sumua vastaan, mikä antaa teidän tutkia saarta edelleen, mutta se voi myös olla tärkeä askel jo aloitetun rituaalin loppuun saattamiseen. Kuinka pitkälle voitte työntää Arkhamin kaaoksen rajalle, ilman että luovutatte kaupungin pimeille voimille.
Defend the Dreamlands from the schemes of the Spinner in Darkness in Weaver of the Cosmos, the sixth and final Mythos Pack in the Dream-Eaters cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game!
Weaver of the Cosmos is Scenario 4–B of The Web of Dreams campaign for Arkham Horror: The Card Game. This scenario can be played on its own in Standalone Mode or combined with the other expansions in The Dream- Eaters cycle to form a larger four-part or eight-part campaign. After the events of Point of No Return, you have finally reached the perilous nightmarescape that you have been led to since the very beginning. Everything has led to this— Virgil’s writings, your companions’ unending sleep, the black cat, all of it. This transdimensional space is home to a spider creature that would obliterate your world and replace it with a new reality. If you cannot stop it, there will be no Earth left to return to, no escape from this hellish dream, and the Dreamlands will be lost as well. You have no choice but to fight.
Come face to face with madness in Where the Gods Dwell, the fifth Mythos Pack in The Dream- Eaters cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game! After your seemingly endless journey across the Dreamlands, you have made your way to the land of Leng, an icy wasteland where you believe the peak of unknown Kadath resides. All the while, a presence taunts you, gnawing at your insides— a wordless voice you cannot hear, but feel within the confines of your mind. A presence that is waiting for you.
Where the Gods Dwell is Scenario 4–A of The Dream-Quest campaign. This scenario can be played on its own in Standalone Mode or combined with the other expansions in The Dream- Eaters cycle to form a larger four-part or eight-part campaign. After the events of Dark Side of the Moon, you have finally made your way to lost Kadath, where Nyarlathotep is waiting for a battle that will force you to face deceit, lies, and shifting reality. If you can somehow draw him out, expose him, you may stand a chance, but how do you fight an enemy you cannot understand?
In Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn, a two-player expandable card game, players take on the roles of Phoenixborns, demi-gods and protectors of this world. These characters are the great saviors of their civilizations. Before they came into existence, the humans were plagued by monsters like chimeras that took away their lands and forced them to live in walled-off cities. When the Phoenixborns came, they fought off the chimeras and freed the lands for humans to take over once again.
But the time of peace was short-lived. A prophecy arose that if one Phoenixborn was able to absorb enough Ashes of others, they would ascend into full gods and take mastery over this world. This, as well as humans' greed for land, fueled the War of Ashes. The great cities now fight among each other, each one of them with a Phoenixborn at its helm, and you will decide who will rise and who will fall to ashes.
Codenames Duet keeps the basic elements of Codenames — give one-word clues to try to get someone to identify your agents among those on the table — but now you're working together as a team to find all of your agents. (Why you don't already know who your agents are is a question that Congressional investigators will get on your back about later!)
To set up play, lay out 25 word cards in a 5×5 grid. Place a key card in the holder so that each player sees one side of the card. Each player sees a 5×5 grid on the card, with nine of the squares colored green (representing your agents) and three squares colored black (representing assassins). Three of the nine squares on each side are also green on the other side, one assassin is black on both sides, one is green on the other side and the other is an innocent bystander on the other side.
Collectively, you need to reveal all fifteen agents — without revealing an assassin — before time runs out in order to win the game. Either player can decide to give the first one-word clue to the other player, along with a number. Whoever receives the clue places a finger on a card to identify that agent. If correct, they can attempt to identify another one. If they identify a bystander, then their guessing time ends. If they identify an assassin, you both lose! Unlike regular Codenames, they can keep guessing as long as they keep identifying an agent each time; this is useful for going back to previous clues and finding ones they missed earlier. After the first clue is given, players alternate giving clues.
The Cosmic Citizenship Council has announced it will allow two new alien species to join its ranks, but they forgot to make two copies of the filing form — which means that only one species can join! Now, the two candidates must battle for control of the planets to determine who deserves the right to become a Certified Civilization.
Cosmic Encounter Duel is a competitive standalone two-player game in the Cosmic Encounter universe in which you and your closest frenemy race to be the first to control five planets. Each of twenty-seven alien species comes equipped with its own unique abilities that play with the game mechanisms in some way, offering you an edge in the fight, e.g., the Cheater, who can reserve an additional tactic that they can put toward any fight in the game — as long as their opponent doesn't call out how they're trying to "cheat". How your game of Cosmic Encounter Duel plays out will inevitably be affected by which powers each dueling species has and how they play off of one another.
In addition to your unique species and its ability, you have twenty spaceships to traverse the cosmos and maintain control over the five planets you need to become a Certified Civilization. As long as you have a ship on a planet, you have control of it, even if your opponent also has ships there and you must share control. You can deploy these ships to fight in duels, use them to act as reinforcements, or draw them back for a tactful retreat. Just don't lose them to the Warp or let them be claimed by the black void between the stars and end up lost in space forever!
To play, players draw and resolve Destiny cards, which come in three types: Discovery cards, Event cards, and Refresh cards. Discovery cards have you and your opponent discover a planet and duel for control, while Event cards ask you both to test your mettle against a variety of challenges and cosmic calamities, and Refresh cards offer a respite in which you can recover ships, gather allies, and ultimately prepare for another clash.
At the start of a duel, you and your opponent secretly decide how many ships to send to the planet, and once they have been deployed, you can call upon any befriended envoys. To plan your attack, you secretly choose a card from your hand and a standing tactic from your collection to either guard your ships or blast your opponent's ships, then you fight, sending ships to face-off for control of the planet until the winner claims their prize while the loser retreats. After you and your opponent resolve a Destiny card, you check the icon on the bottom of the card to determine which deck to draw from next, then the race continues.
In March of 1917, Tsar Nicholas II was forced to abdicate the throne of Russia. In his place, a conservative Provisional Government formed, representing the official authority of the state. Opposed to the newly formed government stood the Petrograd Soviet, an elected council of workers organized by socialist activists.
Over the following months, an internal struggle for power and influence would dominate the country and spark a social revolution. In this state of dual power, or dvoevlastie, charismatic and powerful leaders would rise with the tide of public dissatisfaction and change the course of Russian politics forever.
In Dual Powers, 1-2 players direct the forces on one side of this struggle through political action, social maneuvering, and military conflict. The player with greater support at the end of the game will shape Russia’s future and either launch or suppress the impending Civil War.
Welcome to Arle
In Fields of Arle, created by Uwe Rosenberg, one to two players live as farmers in the small and peaceful town of Arle in East Frisia. The flax grown in the land surrounding the village makes it a profitable place to work and live. Fields of Arle takes players through four and a half years of this era of prosperity, with different opportunities available as the seasons change. Farm the land to capitalize on the demand for flax, or find other ways to make the most of the small town’s prosperity.
Work the Land
Whether you delve into flax farming or leverage other areas of expertise, always make sure that you have the land to build up your village. Construct dikes to keep the waters at bay and expand your fields. Dry out bogs to harvest peat and then clear the land for cultivation. Create more fields for your livestock, buildings, or future crops; after that, you can decide whether to house animals or cultivate a forest for timber. Perhaps you’d like to take up some flax farming for yourself, or diversify and try out a little bit of everything.
Tools of the Trade
At the outset of each half year, you’ll choose how you’d like to spend that time working. There are many ways to build your fortune. Use the Master space to increase the tools at your disposal, focus on the Cattle Trainer to make the most of your livestock, or build up your fleet of vehicles and ship out goods. Taking stock of your progress differs depending on the season. You may milk your existing livestock or care for a bunch of newborn animals. You could harvest your flax in the fall, and sheer your sheep in spring. At the end of each half year, you’ll need to take stock of your progress by unloading your vehicles and feeding your family and animals, so keep an eye on the season and do your best to keep the farm growing and everyone well fed!
Travel and Prosper
Once you’ve made headway in clearing fields and stocking up goods, it's time to make your products available to potential buyers. The more vehicles you have, the more goods you can ship. Send things into the wide world to increase your Travel Experience and grant you points over the course of the four and a half years of the game. Build up your farm and your vehicles and get your goods out into the world to make the most of every season. There are many roads to success in Fields of Arle, so pick your path, work the land, and enjoy the friendly competition as you strive to make your fortune!
Can you make the relationship work or do you break up?
Fog of Love is about finding out how to achieve a happy ending in the love story you create together.
It's all about the choices you make when you shape your story. In the end, each of you can win or lose... individually or together.
You do not play as yourself when playing the game, but as an imaginary character. The character is your device to explore and experiment with the narrative and fictional relationship.
KeyForge: Age of Ascension – Archon Deck consists of a single unique deck created from cards in the Age of Ascension set, the second set of cards in the KeyForge line. Each player must have their own deck in order to play the game.
Journey deeper into the world of the Crucible in Age of Ascension, the second age of KeyForge! This continuation of the world's first Unique Deck Game contains 204 new cards seamlessly integrated into a card pool that contains a total of 370 different cards, creating an entirely new collection of Archon Decks for you to discover, explore, and master!
The KeyForge: Age of Ascension two-player starter provides you with all the tools you need to either begin or expand your adventures on the Crucible, featuring two unique Age of Ascension Archon Decks, a Quickstart Rulebook, two Poster Playmats, and all the keys, tokens, and chain trackers you and your chosen opponent need to start playing!
In more detail, KeyForge is played over a series of turns in which you, as the Archon leading your company, use the creatures, technology, artifacts, and skills of a chosen House to reap precious Æmber, hold off your enemy's forces, and forge enough keys to unlock the Crucible's Vaults. You begin your turn by declaring one of the three Houses within your deck, and for the remainder of the turn you may play and use cards only from that House. For example, if you take on the role of the Archon Radiant Argus the Supreme, you will find cards from Logos, Sanctum, and Untamed in your deck, but if you declare "Sanctum" at the start of your turn, you may use actions, artifacts, creatures, and upgrades only from Sanctum. Your allies from Logos and Untamed must wait.
Next, you must strive to gain the advantage with a series of tactical decisions, leveraging both the cards in your hand and those in play to race ahead of your opponent. If you wish to weaken your rival's forces, you may send out your allies to fight enemies on the opposing side, matching strength against strength. Otherwise, you may choose to use your followers to reap, adding more Æmber to your pool.
Notably, no card in KeyForge has a cost — choosing a House at the start of a turn allows you to play and use any number of cards from that House for free, leading turns to fly by with a wave of activity! Yet balance is key. If you simply reap more Æmber at every opportunity, your rival may quickly grow their team of minions and destroy yours, outpacing your collection and leaving your field barren. But if you focus on the thrill of the fight alone and neglect the collection of Æmber, you won't move any closer to your goal! If you succeed in finding a harmony within your team and have six Æmber at the start of your turn, you'll forge a key and move one step closer to victory. The first to forge three keys wins!
From the imagination of legendary game designer Richard Garfield comes a game unlike anything the world has ever seen—a game where every deck is as unique as the person who wields it and no two battles will ever be the same. This is KeyForge, where deckbuilding and boosters are a thing of the past, where you can carve a path of discovery with every deck, where you can throw yourself into the game with the force of a wild wormhole and embrace the thrill of a tactical battle where wits will win the day!
Along with this new breed of game comes a new world: the Crucible, an artificial world built from the pieces of countless planets across the stars. Here, anything is possible. This world was built for the Archons, god-like beings who, for all their power, know little about their own origins. The Archons clash in constant struggles, leading motley companies of various factions as they seek to find and unlock the planet’s hidden Vaults to gain ultimate knowledge and power.
KeyForge: Call of the Archons is the world’s first Unique Deck Game. Every single Archon Deck that you'll use to play is truly unique and one-of-a kind, with its own Archon and its own mixture of cards in the deck. If you pick up an Archon Deck, you know that you're the only person in existence with access to this exact deck and its distinct combination of cards. In fact, in just the first set of KeyForge, Call of the Archons, there are more than 104 quadrillion possible decks!
Every Archon Deck contains a full play experience with a deck that cannot be altered, meaning it's ready to play right out of the box. Not only does this remove the need for deckbuilding or boosters, it also creates a new form of gameplay with innovative mechanics that challenges you to use every card in your deck to find the strongest and most cunning combinations. It is not the cards themselves that are powerful, but rather the interactions between them—interactions that can only be found in your deck. Your ability to make tough tactical decisions will determine your success as you and your opponent trade blows in clashes that can shift in an instant!
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is a cooperative adventure game in which the players attempt to complete a scenario, each with three heroes of their choice and a deck of allies, events and attachments to support them. Each round, players send their heroes and allies to quest or to fight with enemies that engage them. However, as the heroes and allies exhaust after questing, defending, or attacking, the players' options are typically insufficient to deal with everything at once. Therefore, players need to determine whether it is more urgent to quest and make progress in the scenario while the enemy forces gain power, or to take down enemies while making no progress, not knowing what will come next.
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is the base game of a Living Card Game for which new adventure packs are released monthly. The base game contains three scenarios, twelve famous characters from the works of J.R.R. Tolkien (including Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Denethor and Eowyn), and four pre-constructed player decks. Players can either use one of these decks or construct their own deck to increase their chances to be succesful in the more challenging scenarios. The monthly adventure packs contain a new scenario, a new hero, and new player cards to be used in their deck. The base game is for 1-2 players, but with an additional base game the scenarios can be played with up to four players.
Although this game is set in Tolkien's Middle Earth, the scenarios do not represent scenes from the books, but rather take place in the seventeen years from Bilbo's 111th birthday until Frodo's departure from the Shire.
The scenarios from saga-expansions do represent scenes from the books. Saga-expansions will form the Campaign Mode so that you can play all the saga quests that deal with the trilogy (+ Hobbit) together in one marathon campaign.
Every morning Odin sends his ravens, Huginn and Muninn, across the entire world to bring back news of what life is like on Earth. Naturally, after thousands of years, they've gotten a little competitive. Race through the landscape in opposite directions to be the first to return to Odin. Focus on speed, or enlist the help of the trickster god Loki to create shortcuts and hinder your opponent. Can you be certain Loki's changes won't help your opponent instead? There's only one way to find out!
The revised edition of Thorsten Gimmler's award-winning Odin's Ravens has been completely redesigned, with new rules and a beautiful new art style inspired by Norse mythology.
In Patchwork, two players compete to build the most aesthetic (and high-scoring) patchwork quilt on a personal 9x9 game board. To start play, lay out all of the patches at random in a circle and place a marker directly clockwise of the 2-1 patch. Each player takes five buttons — the currency/points in the game — and someone is chosen as the start player.
On a turn, a player either purchases one of the three patches standing clockwise of the spool or passes. To purchase a patch, you pay the cost in buttons shown on the patch, move the spool to that patch's location in the circle, add the patch to your game board, then advance your time token on the time track a number of spaces equal to the time shown on the patch. You're free to place the patch anywhere on your board that doesn't overlap other patches, but you probably want to fit things together as tightly as possible. If your time token is behind or on top of the other player's time token, then you take another turn; otherwise the opponent now goes. Instead of purchasing a patch, you can choose to pass; to do this, you move your time token to the space immediately in front of the opponent's time token, then take one button from the bank for each space you moved.
In addition to a button cost and time cost, each patch also features 0-3 buttons, and when you move your time token past a button on the time track, you earn "button income": sum the number of buttons depicted on your personal game board, then take this many buttons from the bank.
What's more, the time track depicts five 1x1 patches on it, and during set-up you place five actual 1x1 patches on these spaces. Whoever first passes a patch on the time track claims this patch and immediately places it on his game board.
Additionally, the first player to completely fill in a 7x7 square on his game board earns a bonus tile worth 7 extra points at the end of the game. (Of course, this doesn't happen in every game.)
When a player takes an action that moves his time token to the central square of the time track, he takes one final button income from the bank. Once both players are in the center, the game ends and scoring takes place. Each player scores one point per button in his possession, then loses two points for each empty square on his game board. Scores can be negative. The player with the most points wins.
Space! For millennia, humans have marveled at the cosmos. Modern astronomy gives us valuable insight about what’s happening in the universe, but there is still a sense of wonder to be had in looking up at the expanse above us.
In Stellar, you are stargazers, calibrating your telescopes to bring into view celestial objects of various types — planets, moons, asteroids, interstellar clouds, black holes, even satellites — as you create a beautiful display of the night sky!
You have eleven rounds to play cards to your telescope and notebook, building a night sky tableau. After that, you'll calculate your points, and the stargazer with the most point wins!
In the innovative, two-player co-operative trick-taking game The Fox in the Forest Duet, players team up, helping each other move through the forest.
Work together to play tricks and move through the forest. Use the special abilities of the characters to exchange cards with each other, to let your teammate follow with any card, and more. Win as a team by collecting all the gems, but be careful to stay on the path and not get lost in the forest!
June, 1944: Through the D-Day landings, the Allies have seized a foothold on the beaches of Normandy. Now you must lead your troops forward as you push deeper into France and drive the German forces back. You will face intense resistance, machine gun fire, and mortar bombardment, but a great commander can turn the situation to their advantage!
Undaunted: Normandy is a deck-building game that places you and your opponent in command of American or German forces, fighting through a series of missions critical to the outcome of World War II. Use your cards to seize the initiative, bolster your forces, or control your troops on the battlefield. Strong leadership can turn the tide of battle in your favor, but reckless decisions could prove catastrophic as every casualty you take removes a card from your deck. Take charge amidst the chaos of battle, hold fast in the face of opposition, and remain undaunted.
The Undaunted series continues with this two-player deck-building game of tactical combat, pitting the raiders of Britain's Long Range Desert Group against Italian forces in the North African Theater of World War II.
The North African campaign has begun. Take control of the British Army's Long Range Desert Group and operate behind enemy lines or command the formidable Italian forces opposing them. In Undaunted: North Africa, a sequel to Undaunted: Normandy, players once again lead their sides through a varied series of missions. As casualties mount, wounded soldiers leave the players' decks, forcing them to adapt in the face of changing tactical circumstances. Use your cards to strengthen your forces, deploy vehicles to advance rapidly across the battlefield, and seize the initiative as you determine the outcome of the North African Theater.
In the two-player game Watergate, one player represents the Nixon administration and tries not to resign before the end of the game while the other player represents The Washington Post and tries to show the connections between Nixon and some of his informers.
