"The Lurker at the Threshold"

Card Details


Yog-Sothoth is part of the core set of Ancient Ones.


  • Reckoning: Each investigator on a space containing a Gate advances Doom by 1 unless he discards 1 Spell.

Normal Victory

When 3 Mysteries have been solved, investigators win the game.


The players have 14 spaces on the Doom counter before Yog-Sothoth awakens.

Flavor Text

For eons, sorcerers have called upon the power of Yog-Sothoth to bend reality to their will. This incomprehensible Ancient One exists parallel to all places and times, but is bound to the space between dimensions. Gates between worlds continue to open with more frequency and soon, Yog-Sothoth will be free.


If you defeat this monster during a Combat Encounter, lose 1 Sanity and gain 1 Spell.


Set aside all Yog-Sothoth Special Encounter cards.
