Fantasy Flight Games has revealed Dark Side of the Moon, the third installment in The Dream-Eaters cycle for Arkham Horror:  The Card Game.

Dark Side of the Moon picks up the story from A Thousand Shapes of Horror.  Virgil Gray has been transported to the Moon, an impossibly quiet and cold world guarded by moon-beasts.  The investigators must travel there and rescue Gray, who alone knows the secret to unraveling the mystery of the Dreamlands, while being careful not to make any noise and attract the moon-beasts.  During the game, player actions can raise the “alarm level,” represented by doom tokens.  If the alarm level rises too high, it may become impossible for the investigators to escape once they locate Virgil Gray. 

Dark Side of the Moon can be played as a stand-alone mission or combined with other parts of The Dream-Eaters cycle as part of a campaign.  It is not, however, a stand-alone product.  A copy of Arkham Horror:  The Card Game and a copy of The Dream-Eaters (see “Fifth ‘Arkham Horror’ Cycle Opens With ‘The Dream-Eaters’”) are both required for play.  MSRP is $14.95.  Release date has not been announced.
