You don’t have to be crazy to want to play this game, but it certainly helps.
I’m kidding, of course. It’s more like you have to make sure you don’t go crazy by the end of the game! That’s never a guarantee when Elder Gods are in the mix. Wyvren Gaming is running a Kickstarter campaign now for a new Cthulhu deck-building game. Check your sanity and then read on.
In this cooperative game, you and your fellow players work as paranormal investigators. You’ve all noticed that the stars are aligning and have to work tirelessly in order to keep the elder gods from invading our world. Use your Moxie (you know, a forceful determination, not the old soda brand) in order to reduce their health score to zero. Of course, the elder gods and their followers will be constantly working against you, reducing your own character’s health and sanity down to zero. If at least one investigator’s still around when the elder god’s health is zero, you win! Or, the world wins. If you’re still a gibbering mentalcase, it might not be so much a victory for you, but everyone else will be fine.
The campaign’s a bit more than 50% funded and still has 32 days left to go on the clock.
