Wondered if anyone could suggest an AP that had the most Conspiracy cards in it. I read in a list that Conspiracies of Chaos had seven but is there one that has more?

Thank so much!!

Nope, that's the most by far. The next closest packs have two each: Dunwitch Denizens and Lost Rites.

Yup, that's right.

Are you considering building a conspiracy deck? I tried a few times because a) they are cool, b) they come as a surprise to your opponent. Not too successful but I do like the look on my opponents' faces when I play them out ... that confused scowl as they reach for the rule book.

Oooooh..... I never even thought of an all conspiracy deck. I just like the conspiracy cards and wanted as many as I could get my hands on.. But now that you mention it, hmmmmm...

Well, each player can only have one Conspiracy in play at a time, so there's a practical upper limit of how many to take. Typically a "conspiracy deck" will feature 1 or 2 types of Conspiracies, and actually 3x one type is usually enough because several of the Conspirator characters have ways to help you find them.

Then you'll potentially include some Conspirators and other cards that synergize well with the benefits that Conspiracy provides.

Note that some Conspiracies provide their main value while in play rather than by winning them. So, you might NOT want to win these right away. Instead they'll provide some effect that applies to both characters but your deck will be designed to take more advantage of it.

My most successful conspiracy deck was an MU/Twilight deck featuring that double-Investigation conspiracy that pulls another copy of itself out of your deck when you score it. When that decks fires, it is hard for your opponent to stop.

My best success with a conspiracy so far has been Combing the Archives (LR) in a MU/Yog deck (with Elder Things and Shoggoths making up the Yog end). Being able to dominate in investigation on a conspiracy with an extra investigation struggle means the ability to gobble it up right quick, the arcane struggles were a cinch for my deck, and there were no terror or combat struggles to get in the way!

I'm currently prepping a conspiracy deck that I've been wanting to build for a long time, with Silver Twilight conspirators and politicians plus Cthulhu Serpents. The conspiracies are Behind the Door and Taming the Storm (both from Yuggoth Contract packs).

In general the most recent Conspiracies have been really good I think.

Probably a few episodes down the line we should do a segment on Conspiracies/Conspirators for Elder Things.
