Cubicle 7 Entertainment has announced that it is releasing new storytelling cards based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos.
Designed by veteran designers Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi, Cthulhu Tales takes players to an early 20th Century sanatorium, where they will try to escape by proving they aren’t insane.
Home to university libraries filled with worm-eaten tomes, legend-haunted towns populated with degenerate locals and their rustic superstitions, Cyclopean ruins from long-forgotten aeons, and the disquieting glimpses of things from beyond…
You are the unwilling guests of an antiquated sanatorium, perhaps the infamous Arkham Sanatorium, or maybe the Danvers State Asylum.
Your only hope of escape is to convince the authorities, and perhaps yourself, that you do not belong here. And so you begin to explain the sinister series of events that led to your unjust incarceration.
Unfortunately, your memories are populated by the stuff of nightmares…
Cthulhu Tales features 115 cards, a game board, tokens and a 12-sided die, and is expected to have a MSRP of $29.99 when it arrives next summer.
Cthulhu Tales is a Kickstarter project that will be successfully funded in the next day, so if you want to get in on the action, there is still time to do it, so you can be one of the first to play the game in July.
