The Shadow Archive is proud to announce that we’ve partnered with the Aether Game Cafe in Hoboken, NJ to provide the first unofficial token line for Arkham Horror: the Card Game! These beautiful wooden tokens are laser-engraved with exceptional detail and will further enrich your immersion into the Arkham Files experience. The complete token set, which […]

Release Review: Cloud Cover (Pod 255)

Farsight: This is a solid objective. Two resources goes well into a deck that can be pretty light on resources depending on how you build it, and the health boosting effect is extremely strong. Two health fighters will be boosted out of the one-hit kill range of many mains like Luke and Han, and three […]

Release Review: Lure of the Lost (Pod 254)

AussieJedi: This objective is a straightforward 5/1 objective and it has an ability that I thought I would like. It seems that the expense of focusing this card is just a little hard to stomach, especially at the cost of that one resource I needed for another main to keep a strong presence. If I get […]

Release Review: On the Run (Pod 253)

Dav Flamerock: On The Run gives us the Smuggler version of the “affiliated fate card” effect, and it’s in pretty stiff competition. There Is No Conflict, A New Beginning, and the rest are all very strong effects… and this one comes up short. Yes, you get an extra edge card, which probably means you’re winning the edge […]

Release Review: Haunting the Empire (Pod 252)

Farsight: Considering the powerful abilities on the other Specter objectives this lack of text is disappointing, although it’s also a hint that this pod might also find itself in plenty of other decks. The two resources almost make up for it, and open up a little bit of extra synergy with a set that plays […]

Release Review: Stand Together (Pod 251)

Farsight: Influence is a powerful objective ability, as we have already seen on Zeb and Sabine’s objective. I expect this won’t be much different. They are key to how the Specter deck makes it tri-affiliation split work, and they’ll be even more important in the future with the split affiliation cards coming in the next […]

Release Review: Power of the Force

We have the Power of the Force! And good lord is this a Force Pack. I could be wrong, but as far as I can tell, at least 4 of these objective sets are bonkers. And time will tell how good Ezra Bridger ends up being. If you’re unsure whether or not to buy this […]

Release Review: His High Exaltedness (Pod 250)

AussieJedi: This is the only objective in this pack release to receive 2 resources on it and it even comes with a really awesome ability that is going to cause huge issues. The quality of cards that you can return to hand from discard is just something for the LS to be worried about. It […]
