Have you ever wanted access forbidden knowledge to tap into the hidden secrets of the universe and the dark mysteries of the Great Old Ones? Of course you have! These secrets will allow you to grow you very own incarnation of a tentacled horror from beyond the veils of space and time. Oh, sure, some would call you “insane,” but who will be laughing when your new pet devours their home town?
Problem is, some of your research buddies have acquired the same dark knowledge as you and are working on growing their own monstrosities. No way do they get to steal your glory! You must ensure your beast is complete first—which is why you brought your trusty shotgun. And if your precious, slimy baby is injured you brought your travel copy of the Necronomicon as a little healing insurance. Do whatever it takes … for whoever’s first grows to completion wins … everything!
Building An Elder God is a casual card game of Lovecraftian construction for 2-5 players ages 10 and up. The rules are easy to learn and a typical game takes from 15-30 minutes, depending on the number of players. Build a Cthulhu-esque tentacled monstrosity to completion before the other players, using damage cards to blast your opponents’ creatures to slow down their progress so that you can win! Assuming there is no aversion to a little implied violence and the sight of ichor, this is appropriate for friends and families.
