The Shifting Sands, the first Asylum Pack in the Ancient Relics cycle for Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game, strikes out in a bold new direction, moving Call of Cthulhu's action away from the darkened mansions of Arkham and the squalid alleys of Innsmouth and onto the burning sands of the Egypt. The theme of this Asylum Pack is the cursed tombs beneath the great pyramids, and as Lovecraft describes in Under the Pyramids, "the cryptic yellow Nile that is the mother of aeons and dynasties." Most prominently, The Shifting Sands features twelve all-new story cards, forming a brand new story deck. Race around the globe as the long tendrils of the Ancient Ones extend out into the wider world. The story cards in this new deck feature big, symmetrical effects, especially tied to the pursuit of ancient and terrible artifacts that will run through the Ancient Relics cycle.
