On the FFG website it says "Secrets of Arkham introduces a ten-card story deck that provides a different play experience than the story deck from the Core Set, and its 150 player cards (three copies each of fifty different cards) explore the terrors of H.P. Lovecraft’s fictional New England."


However, the set for sale on Amazon says "This 110-card expansion also contains two copies of 50 different cards..."


So which is it? Two copies of 50 or 3 copies of 50? :huh:

The short answer - both!


Secrets of Arkham is being reprinted with x3 copies of each card.  The old SoA had only x2 copies.  Back in the early days of LCGs, a few of the deluxe expansions (mostly from AGoT but also SoA) only had x2 copies of cards instead of 3.  This is the last expansion to be updated into the now standard x3 copy format.


I believe the revised version of SoA is due out some time in February, and it will say "Revised" on it so you can tell the difference between the old and the new (I also think it will retail for $29.95 as opposed to $24.95).


Did that help?
