Cthulhu Tales! Work continues apace on art and design for Cthulhu Tales, the story telling card game of the Cthulhu Mythos, by Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi. We want a cyclopean slab of the work to be done before we bring the game to Kickstarter, and the art department are hard at work on card designs.
Those of you familiar with Hobbit Tales will recognise much of what's going on here, but the game rules are eerily different, with a number of special developments to reflect the nature of Lovecraftian story-telling. The Phobia Pool, and the Narration of The Premise and how Treatment Tokens are handled are all very different. We'll share more info on these developments and more as we close in on our launch date.

About Cthulhu Tales
“In relating the circumstances which have led to my confinement within this refuge for the demented, I am aware that my present position will create a natural doubt of the authenticity of my narrative.”
– The Tomb, H.P. Lovecraft
University libraries filled with worm-eaten tomes, legend-haunted townspopulated with degenerate locals and their rustic superstitions, cyclopean ruins from long-forgotten aeons, and the disquieting glimpses of things from beyond...
Can you convince your fellow guests at the sanatorium that you don't belong there? Can you convince yourself?
In Cthulhu Tales players take turns as narrator and, using a hand of beautifully illustrated, tarot-sized cards, tell their Lovecraftian tale, attempting to emerge unscathed. Meanwhile their opponents use their own cards to attempt to drive the story further into madness.
Cthulhu Tales is a game for 2 to 5 players, authored by the award-winning designers Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello, creators of the Tolkien-themed War of the Ring strategy game, The One Ring roleplaying game and the Hobbit Tales storytelling card game.
Cthulhu Tales is coming to Kickstarter soon.
