Cthulhu: Death May Die (Base Game)
The cultists have been painstaking preparing for this moment for quite some time. An Elder God, a being adrift in a different dimension, has reached out into their minds, giving them the knowledge necessary to awaken it and bring it into our own world, unleashing its hellish powers on the unsuspecting populace. Too late did the Investigators find out about it. The final ritual has begun. But with a little luck, the god might just be vulnerable for a moment after being summoned. That’s when they can shoot it in the face.
Cthulhu: Death May Die puts players in charge of Investigators looking to defeat an Elder God that is being summoned to Earth. They are running late, as the summoning ritual is already underway. But if they can collect enough clues to find a weakness, or alter the ritual just enough to cause one, they can blast the god to death before it gets a foothold. Working together, players will fight cultists, search for answers, and try to keep their already-broken minds from warping even further.
Boardgame Geek gave this game a review with a whopping 8,2/10 so you’re in for a treat! Or a threat? Or both? 🙂
In Cthulhu: Death May Die, inspired by the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, you and your fellow players represent investigators in the 1920s who instead of trying to stop the coming of Elder Gods, want to summon those otherworldly beings so that you can put a stop to them permanently. You start the game insane, and while your long-term goal is to shoot Cthulhu in the face, so to speak, at some point during the game you’ll probably fail to mitigate your dice rolls properly and your insanity will cause you to do something terrible — or maybe advantageous. Hard to know for sure.
The game has multiple episodes, and each of them has a similar structure of two acts, those being before and after you summon whatever it is you happen to be summoning. If any character dies prior to the summoning, then the game ends and you lose; once the Elder One is on the board, as long as one of you is still alive, you still have a chance to win.
The episodes are all standalone and not contingent on being played in a certain order or with the same players.
You also get: Expansion – Black Goat of the Woods!
Cultists look to bring the world back to a more primordial time
The full, true nature of the Black Goat of the Woods isn’t entirely known. What is known is that its cultists look to bring the world back to a much more primordial time, and they’re willing to sacrifice anyone that stands in their way. The Black Goat of the Woods is followed by its thousand young, moving like a stampede against all that oppose them.
The Black Goat of the Woods expansion for Cthulhu: Death May Die brings another Elder One to the game. Players can choose it as their nemesis when setting up a scenario. The Black Goat of the Woods works primarily through summoning Dark Young who gain different buffs and bonuses from their Mythos cards. The Investigators will truly have their work cut out for them.
And you also get: Expansion – Yog Sothoth!
Knowledge is Power, and Power is dangerous
Yog Sothoth is not interested in destruction or conquest. It is simply the knower of all things. And while knowledge, in and of itself, is not dangerous, its application can be. The cultists that seek out Yog Sothoth’s knowledge don’t do so for enlightenment, but to push forward their nefarious schemes. For that, Yog Sothoth must be destroyed.
The Elder Box: Yog Sothoth introduces a new Elder One to games of Cthulhu: Death May Die. Players can combine it with any Episode from the core box or expansions. Yog Sothoth enhances the experience by adding extra gates to the board that mirror normal gates increasing, the power of the next enemy summons. For example, Yog Sothoth’s special Monster, Wilbur Whateley, adds a gate to the board every time it dies. But that doesn’t mean that Investigators are hopeless, gates may be attacked and destroyed, causing damage to enemies in the same space, which can be used to help contain the waves of monsters.
