This world is not as it seems and behind even the most mundane stories lies a twisting web of intertwining conspiracies. As one mask falls away, another leers just beneath it, glaring and ominous. Only the bravest investigators, or the maddest cultists, will dare to peel back all of the layers to reveal the horrifying truth...
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Conspiracies of Chaos, another classic Asylum Pack in the Forgotten Lore cycle of expansions, returning in the third quart of 2011! Secrets and mysteries abound in the latest Asylum Pack for Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game, which is emerging from the shadows to crawl back into the light.
Conspiracies of Chaos reintroduces to the Living Card Game environment this intriguing Asylum Pack, updated to the 60-card per pack format (3 copies each of 20 unique cards).

Wheels Within Wheels
Among Conspiracies of Chaos' features are six faction-specific conspiracies. Conspiracies are story cards that players can play from their own decks and win to further their goal of claiming three stories. The six conspiracies included within Conspiracies of Chaos play into one of each faction's particular strengths. If you win a conspiracy and control a character of that conspiracy's faction, triggering the effect on it will not have the usual symmetrical backlash of a normal story card. The effects of these conspiracies can swing games–hopefully in your favor.
Also featured in Conspiracies of Chaos are an assortment of characters that thrive in a world of conspiracy–characters that grow stronger when a conspiracy is in play. In addition, this Asylum Pack also includes support cards and events that can wildly alter the tempo of the game, either by speeding up the play or draw of cards, or by eliminating other cards. Conspiracies of Chaos will feature madness on a new scale...perfect for the world of Cthulhu.
Conspiracies reveal themselves all around you...can you fight against them or will you be ground beneath their inexorable might? Find out when Conspiracies of Chaos returns in the third quarter of 2011!
