Based on H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, in this Kickstarter card game you select an Investigator, and battle the invading Cthulhu Minions and Horrors while building up a team of Followers to help you.

This 1-4 player card/dice game involves combating various monsters from the Cthulhu universe separated into Minor, Major and Unspeakable Horror cards across 4 different Cult boards. Along the way, your character can bring followers with special abilities into play that may or or may not have a cost. Additionally, you can buy special items that help you defeat the monsters. Certain cards have special abilities such as The Gate Card that makes you draw an additional cult card or The Cursed Scroll which forces you to pay XP or draw three more cult cards.

To win: If there are more than 5 Minions on any Cult Board at the end of any turn, that Cult summons their Elder God. You lose. No mortal can hope to face these beings and, the world is lost. If, however, you are able to empty the Cult Deck without the world ending, you have foiled the arrival of the Elder Gods, and you win the game.

    Un très bon jeu aussi bien au niveau du fond que de la forme (illustrations très réussies un vrai plus). L'univers de Lovecraft bien retanscrit. Par contre il faut augmenter la difficulté, sinon le jeu ne vous résistera que sur du "Pas de chance !" aux dés ou au tirage

    Bon jeu en solo.

    Très bon jeu solitaire, rapide et facile à mettre en place et à jouer mais intéressant tout de même dans ses mécanismes de jeu et dans le challenge qu'il propose. A noter que l'on peut moduler très facilement la difficulté du jeu (plus facile ou plus dur) pour un challenge ajusté à nos envies.

    Toujours le service impeccable de Philibert : rapidité de livraison dans un emballage bien solide. Une sorte de réussite chez Lovecraft qui excelle surtout en solo. On joue un investigateur qui doit sauver le monde contre l'invasion de hordes de monstres aux ordres de grands anciens qu'il ne faut surtout pas réveiller sous peine de...perdre la partie. C'est un jeu très fluide et très agréable à jouer. Il y a plusieurs degrés de difficultés. On jette des dés mais pas que : faut faire des choix, certes parfois évidents, mais y'a de la subtilité, un peu... Vive installé il joue bien son rôle de passe temps...de temps en temps...
