What i will go over is that this game is fast, easy, an fun to play.

Players have the option of playing it safe with smaller words with less angles to increase their chances of passing the sanity check, though there are no guarantees.
Dad's Gaming Addiction
This is a great board game, especially for those into the Lovecraft mythos.

My wife and I like our mixture of non typical (some Euro) games. This came as a big surprise with how much fun it is for such a wide range of people. You don't have to know the Lovecraft theme and the cards are even more interesting to those who don't. We played with family who thought the Cthulu tokens were goblins (easier not to explain, so they be goblins now). The game is sort of scrabble-ish, making words and scoring points. The words you create don't really have to be big fancy words in order to win. The value of the letter cards are not based on how hard that letter is to make a word, but on the amount of angles in the letters. Also the higher value of your words the more chance you have of going insane (you lose). We went insane while a steady paced 9 year gave us the beat down one game. It was so much fun for the entire family. Educational, Quick and 2-6 players too!

This is a great game and a lot of fun to play. It is a great party game and makes for an entertaining drinking game as well.

I picked up a copy from Skymall for under $20, and I've seen several online retailers that were asking between $15-25 for it. Don't get screwed by crazy high prices and shop around before you buy it.

My friend Dave introduced me to this game at OmegaCon and I fell in love. The little, plastic Cthulhus make it a must on their own. If you can spell, you are in. This game can be played in a short amount of time but is hours and hours of fun. My wife and our children spend many nights playing it!

MUCH FUN!!!!!!!

I HIGHLY recommend this game!

Folks were a little reluctant to play at first especially when I resoundingly kick their butts in scrabble all the time, but once they learned that the goal wasn't to always make the highest point word and you get to "go insane" if you miss the die roll too many times, it became a big hit! Highly enjoyable, almost no setup time, and quick playtime.

I want to be clear about something: this game is fun. It's a very light word game, easy to learn and generally entertaining. Normally i would give it 4 stars. However, the physical components of this game are so poor in quality that I almost never play anymore.

When I first opened the box, I noticed a very strong (and unpleasant) smell. At first I assumed it was the box itself, but it turned out to be the Cthulhu sanity markers. The smell was so strong that it actually gave me a headache after a few minutes (note: I am not prone to headaches), so rather than use the figurines we just use dice to keep track of sanity.

The cards are also quite low in production quality. The artwork is fine, but the card stock used will bend ON ITS OWN, while the game is not being played. I even tried putting the cards in sleeves, and it didn't help the problem.

It's really a shame - this is a fun game whose potential is ruined by terrible production quality.

I was excited to try this game after seeing it on Tabletop. The game is OK (I like it but I don't love it yet) but the biggest disappointment was the poor quality of the cards. The little Cthullus were well made but those thin cheapo cards will definitely not hold up over time.

If you've ever wanted/needed a word game that actually used real words AND your creativity, then this game is outstanding! Don't let the fact that this is based on the rather grim Cthulhu mythos spoil your fun. Yes, the art work and word association text on the cards are based on the H.P. Lovecraft stories, but the tone of the art work is made much more G rated. No soul devouring, I promise.

I bought this game after seeing it on Will Wheaton's TableTop show on YouTube. It's simple & a lot of fun, and a great way to introduce people who aren't into table top games to them. It would probably make for a great drinking game too since a player can make up their own words once they go insane.
