It seems harmless enough. Just a room full of dusty old antiquities, dug up from some old tomb in Egypt. Miskatonic U’s faculty are all a tizzy, of course, but why did Professor Armitage go all pasty-white when he saw the Pharaoh’s sarcophagus?
The weirdness didn’t start until the next night …
Arkham Horror: Curse of the Dark Pharaoh Expansion (Revised Edition) is an updated version of the original The Curse of the Dark Pharaoh expansion released in 2006.
The original Curse of the Dark Pharaoh was the first of Arkham Horror’s many successful expansions, and has seen a great number of printings since it was originally published almost five years ago. However, as FFG developed the Arkham Horror play experience over the years, this expansion came to become the one that deviated most from their later design vision for the game, and over time came to stand apart from the Arkham Horror family as a whole.
With this Revised Edition, the Arkham Horror design team has remade Curse of the Dark Pharaoh from the ground up, incorporated errata, re-balanced cards to better fit with Arkham Horror’s current ecosystem, and added new game elements.
Focusing on the thematic game play, amazing art, and strange tales that makes the original Arkham Horror game such a fan-favorite, this expansion includes 166 new cards:
22 Exhibit Items, ancient relics from the visiting exhibit.
18 Barred from the Neighborhood cards for unlucky investigators.
4 Benefit and 4 Detriment cards with new and intriguing effects.
45 new Arkham Location cards, 27 new Gate cards, 18 new Mythos cards, 21 new Spells, and 7 new Allies to make Arkham Horror bigger, scarier, and more exciting than ever before!
