Revelation - If there are no Possessed enemies in play, Dance of the Yellow King gains surge. Otherwise, test (3). If you fail, the nearest Possessed enemy readies, moves (one location at a time) until it reaches your location, engages you, and makes an immediate attack.

FAQs (taken from the official FAQ or FFG's responses to the official rules question form)
  • NB: ArkhamDB now incorporates errata from the Arkham Horror FAQ in its card text, so the ArkhamDB text and the card image above differ, as the ArkhamDB text has been edited to contain this erratum (updated August 2022): Erratum: The Lunatic trait in this card's effects should read Possessed wherever it appears, instead. - FAQ, v.2.0, August 2022

  • Q: If a Young Psychopath or Maniac is moved "one location at a time" by Dance of the Yellow King, do they momentarily engage with an investigator in a location they pass through in order to reach their target, and trigger their own becoming engaged effects, as well as optional effects like Zoey Samaras and Zoey's Cross? A: Indeed they do!

  • Q: If an enemy is in a location with no valid path to your location, can it still be the "nearest" enemy purposes of cards like Mysterious Chanting or Dance of the Yellow King? A: Even if it has no valid path to an investigator, an enemy can still qualify as the "nearest" enemy if there are no other enemies in play that are nearer. That said, an effect that requires an enemy to track a path to an investigator (such as Dance of the Yellow King) would not cause an enemy to move if there is no valid path. - FAQ v1.2, Jan 2018.
