The Path to Carcosa expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game is now available at retailers everywhere, and with it, the strange play, The King in Yellow has come to Arkham.

The main story arc of this new expansion cycle revolves around the arrival of the play The King in Yellow in Arkham. All of the local social elite have been eager to see this one live, probably because it’s “the fancy new play all the way from Paris!” However, whenever this play is performed, it seems to cause devastation in it’s wake…if only someone would investigate this and discover the truth behind the destruction. Oh wait, that’s YOU.

Take the role of one of the 6 new investigators from the trigger happy Mark Harrigan, or the inquisitive Minh Thi Phan. The Mystic Investigator Akachi Onyele is also quite knowledgeable in the dark arts or you could go with the actor/grave-digger William Yorick. There is also the Roguish Sefina Rousseau, who’s painterly visions seem to come to pass and finally the games first neutral investigator Lola Hayes – not recommended for a new player, but a very powerful investigator if you know what you’re doing.


If you are looking for a fantastic Living Card Game that will tickle your deck-building and RPG-lite fancy then you should check out Arkham Horror The Card Game and pick this latest expansion up in your FLGS!

The Path to Carcosa

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…

In The Path to Carcosa, the second deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game, 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.


The show must go on…even if it’s causing people to go slightly mad.
