A fun easy game for everyone of all ages.


Cheapass Games hits it out of the park with this one. I initially backed the Kickstarter campaign because of my love of all things John Kovalic.

I figured the game was simple and easy and I could teach it to my kids in no time, we'd have a few fun rounds with it, and be done with it. I would still have all that lovely Cthulhu artwork and it would sit on my bookshelf.

Wow, was I ever wrong! It's simple to play, simple to teach, hard enough to have to make good decisions, but damn fun. It's also easy to just play a round or three while you're waiting around anywhere. No big set up, just shuffle and deal.

I have played this game with kids of all ages, and adults of all ages, and it makes for a fun way to pass the time. The kids get into it and really enjoy figuring out what moves they should make.

Don't underestimate having this game around. Your kids, and you will love it.
