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 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!

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!

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.

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.

Unspeakable Words: 2-6 Players, Ages 10+, Average Play Time = 30 Minutes

The components were fairly colorful and well-themed. I’m not all that big on Lovecraftian lore, but the cards certainly had a monstrous appeal about them. The rules were easy to understand and we were well on our way within five minutes of opening the box. With that being said, we discovered that the game could be modified in a few ways to add some spice to the original rule set. For example, sanity checks could be compared with the cards left in a player’s hand after forming a word and not the word itself. If you eliminate the point threshold (one hundred points), you can simply play to see who will survive the longest. Feel free to make your own house rules! For those of you who are curious, the manual does list four other variants to try out so that players can mix things up.

While the game relies a bit on the dice to determine the results of a sanity check, it actually serves to give players some strategic choices. 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. It’s very possible to lose a sanity check on a word score of three if the die hates you that day. By that same token, you can play larger words with a lot of angles in the hopes of inflating your score quickly, though you run the risk of being eliminated early on since sanity checks are harder to pass this way.

I’ll opt to keep this review short and sweet, mainly due to the ease of which this game plays. There aren’t any special gimmicks or rules…just you, the words you form, and sanity checks. It’s a simple concept that will attract players of all ages.

I love this game for a lot of reasons. I love the fact that points are awarded to each letter based on the number of "angles" in the letter -- you don't have to keep track of that during the game since the point number is already on the card, but its a cute detail that adds to its "mythos" connection. I love the little Cthulhus, they are so cute. The illustrations are excellent.

But more importantly, this is a great game even for those not into the whole "Cthulhu mythos" thing. Playing this game seems to level the playing field more than Scrabble -- with Scrabble, you can have a natural advantage by being able to figure out the longest or highest-points words to play, and people who don't have as good of a vocabulary have a disadvantage. It's not as fun for them to play. But with this game, both of those people can play together without a disadvantage/advantage because of the "sanity" rules. It makes it feel more like a party game, since the result might surprise you. It's not all about playing the longest word, it's about surviving to the end of the game!
