Fail: If there are no more Allies to return to the box at the end of the Mythos Phase, return this card to the box. Each player must lower either their maximum Sanity or Stamina (their choice) by 1 for the rest of the game.


The Pass condition should be resolved in the Southside Streets instead of Ma's Boarding House.
