|Call of Cthulhu LCG | Published 23 March 2011||Rating||20 votes|
Long buried and thought forgotten by all but the most obsessed scholars, Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the return of the The Mountains of Madness and Ancient Horrors Asylum Packs! In addition to returning these two Asylum Packs for Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game to the world of the living, these packs have also been updated to the new 60-card per pack format (3 copies each of 20 unique cards).
The cards of The Mountains of Madness and Ancient Horrors include updated rules text based on the most recent FAQ and Errata, reintroducing these classic Asylum Packs to the Call of Cthulhu metagame.
The Mountains of Madness is themed around the H.P. Lovecraft short novel of the same name about a doomed Miskatonic University research expedition to Antarctica. This Asylum Pack features Polar events, Alaskan Sledge Dogs, Antarctic Monsters, and more!
Ancient Horrors centers around Monsters, Ancient Ones, and the brave (or insane) hunters that stalk them. Both Investigators and servitors of the Mythos will find powerful allies in this pack, such as Ghoulish Worshipper, Safari Hunter, Aspiring Artist, and new Ancient Ones Bokrug, Ghatanothoa, Atlach-Nacha, and others.
Coming this summer, The Mountains of Madness and Ancient Horrors return, new and improved, with more cards and more opportunities for exciting game play. Madness and Horror await you in Call of Cthulhu this summer! And... be sure to keep an eye out for more Call of Cthulhu reprints, coming soon!
Based on the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft and his literary circle, Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game takes two players deep into the Cthulhu Mythos where investigators clash with the Ancient Ones and Elder Gods for the fate of the world. The Living Card Game format allows players to customize their gaming experience with monthly Asylum Pack expansions to the core game.
Wow. Thats a fairly major nerf to Aspiring Artist.
Not sure if its a good nerf, but anything that gets it off of the banned list is a good thing I suppose.
I would like to know if they changed Snow Graves
Great to see them come out, the Dogs featuring in the latest FAQ, gave me a hint of what was to come...
The link of Aspiring Artist is wrong.
Shows how wrong the original artist worked out. Even with the nerfs, it's still an awesome card. Cool to see these back!
This is truly a magnificent piece of news. I'm glad they decided to reprint these. I guess the rumors FFG had something special planned for these Asylum Packs was somewhat misleading. Unless the shiny golden boxes are it.
Anyway, I can't wait until I can get my hands on each one of them (without having to pay the exorbitant ebay-esque ammount of money; So much for the living off speculation with the oldest of LCG Asylum Packs).
YAY! No I can have my third Cafeteria Lady.....and return the one I have been borrowing for the last 3 months to an un-named party.
Very nice, I was hopign these would be reprinted
Two badly planned cards revised! Excellent :)
Glad to see these, been waiting for the reprinted versions of these AP's.
