Path to Carcosa is the current storyline in Fantasy Flight Games’ Arkham Horror: The Card game, but in the months ahead, we’ll be taken to The Forgotten Age.
In The Forgotten Age, one to four players embark on a scientific expedition to the rainforests of southern Mexico with five new investigators, as well as an incredible eighty-seven scenario cards and sixty-four player cards (two copies each of thirty-two distinct cards). Here, you and your team will venture deep into dark rainforests and forbidden caverns in two new scenarios, which form the beginning of a new campaign for your investigation team as you step back into The Forgotten Age.
It all kicks off with a deluxe expansion set where the players venture into The Untamed Wilds a.k.a. the rainforests of southern Mexico in search of a lost Aztec city. Since this is an exploration game, The Forgotten Age will introduce the Explore ability where players draw from an exploration deck.
Each Explore ability indicates a particular type of location that you are seeking to draw and, as a driven investigator, you must continue to draw from the exploration deck until you either discover the location you seek or a treachery brings your exploration to a halt. If a location of the type you seek is drawn, it is put into play and you move to that location to successfully tour the area.
The game includes five new investigators, 87 scenario cards, and 32 player cards. Arkham Horror: The Card Game – The Forgotten Age Deluxe Edition has a SRP of $29.95 and is on pre-order now.
