Nothing can stop the evil incantation that the cultists are doing. Even if every one of them was wiped out, the elder gods will still return to Earth. The only hope is that with enough disruption, the immortal monsters might just be slightly mortal for a moment when they arrive. If that’s the case, then the world might not be plunged into an all-consuming chaos of insanity. That’s your goal in Cthulhu: Death May Die, the new board game from CMON up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Cthulhu: Death May Die is a cooperative board game for 1 to 5 players willing to take on the Cthulhu mythos like never before! Cultists are summoning one of the Elder Ones to consume our world, and it is up to the ragtag group of investigators to face the nightmarish forces and disrupt the ritual long enough to make the Elder One vulnerable. And then kill it dead.
Designed by Rob Daviau and Eric M. Lang, the game features monster artwork by Adrian Smith and investigator artwork by Karl Kopinski. Investigators come from all walks of life, each bringing a unique skill to the team, as well as two other generic skills.
The campaign’s already well over its funding goal (as one would expect for a CMON game by Eric Lang and Rob Daviau), with still 13 days left to go.
