It's a really easy game to learn and fast!
Eric Brown
It's so random that you never actually feel like you won or lost; just that the game has ended.
Seamroy
The active player, AKA the Caster, chooses a target, AKA the Victim, and rolls the D12.

The game is quick and easy and very portable. There is not really much of a strategy - just a bit. We played with four people total, and the game lasted maybe twenty minutes. It certainly has a coolness factor with the large, custom d12 and the Cthulhu themed game play.

I mostly see this game as something that you can whip out between other activities or while waiting in a long line or at a convention while waiting for an event to start. One or two games in a row and you're pretty ready to move on and try something else. Also, you'll need to keep the one-sheet rules with it, at least until everyone's memorized the little table. It's not hard, but not obvious, either. Again, the whole thing can be slipped into a little ziplock bag and tossed into a backpack and then pulled out for those ten to twenty minutes between activities when you want to have a mild distraction with your friends.

[BTW: I also own "Zombie Dice" from Steve Jackson Games. These games are totally different. Different dice, different rules, and different game play. I'm just adding this in case anyone thought they were differently themed versions of the same game; they are not.]

Cthulhu Dice is a pretty simple game, but instead of explaining how it works it would probably be more helpful to point you to the flash demo on the SJ Games website.
[...]

I bought Cthulhu Dice at a game shop about an hour away from my house while on a trip with some friends. We opened it on the drive home and played the whole way back, rolling in an upturned frisbee. This is definitely not a game you'll play all night, you'll probably play it in the down time between larger games or while you're waiting for the last few people to show up. That said, the game is extremely fun. It's fast paced, easy to learn, and, best of all, portable. I've started carrying the die that comes with the game when I go out and starting games while waiting in line or stuck in traffic. It's great for killing time and getting some quick fun in.

The game comes with glass beads to use as sanity counters and a large, 12 sided die with several different symbols relating to the Cthulhu mythology. The beads are nothing special, though the sickly green is suitably creepy. The die is beautiful; it's significantly larger than a normal d12 so the images are clear and easy to see.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Shala Kerrigan TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 4, 2011
My eldest picked this up recently because he loves playing games. It's a complete game in one small package, that plays very quickly and doesn't involve strategy or serious thought. Each player gets 3 Sanity counters, and rolls the dice against someone else as an attack. The person attacked then gets a roll of the dice to respond. When one player has sanity and the rest have "gone mad" or when everyone has lost all their sanity, the game is over.
The sanity counters are flat green marbles like you can find in craft stores. The dice is a large 12 sided die with easy to see designs that are in good contrast.
It's super easy, and since game play goes so fast it's a great game when you're waiting at a restaurant with a couple friends or to pass a couple minutes between other games. It's not something to play for hours and hours, but for a few minutes, it's a lot of fun. Because it's just the one die and sanity counters, it's very portable.

"All hail Cthulhu!" is what I chant when I take my Cthulhu Dice out of my bag for a few games...
You don't know what Cthulhu Dice is? Then allow me to enlighten you.

Cthulhu Dice is a simple, fast pace dice game developed by Steve Jackson Games and was released around March of 2010, about the same time as Zombie Dice, another Steve Jackson dice game, but that's another topic entirely.

Cthulhu Dice revolves around the mythos of Cthulhu; a fictional Elder God of madness and insanity created by H.P. Lovecraft, and has been gaining ground in horror tales and has become almost an icon in the geek world. In the game of Cthulhu Dice, you take on the role of a Cultist who has challenged other Cultist's to a battle of sanity. The contents of the game are: one custom 12 sided die embossed with symbols from the Cthulhu myth (And can also come in a variety of color choices, something the company did as an extra feature instead of leaving the die as just one color, a point to add in their favor), a sheet of rules, 18 glass marble tokens and a handy zip lock plastic bag to carry it all in. This game is for 2-6 players, but more can be added with enough marble tokens.

Each player starts with 3 of the glass tokens to represent their current sanity level. The active player, AKA the Caster, chooses a target, AKA the Victim, and rolls the D12. After the Caster applies the result of his/her roll, the Victim gets to roll in response, targeting the Caster. Once both the Caster and the Victim have rolled, the turn is over and the die passes to the next player. The last player who hasn't `Lost their Marbles' at the end of a turn wins and gets bragging rights, unless all players loose their marbles, then the Mighty Cthulhu wins. Simple and effective game play.

I picked Cthulhu Dice and Zombie Dice up at the same time before attending a convention to give our group something to do while we waited in lines and between seminars. This game consists of one large custom dice and then 18 small glass pebbles. The hefty dice itself is very interesting to look at and it seems fairly durable. The little glass pebbles are just little glass pebbles so they might not be very durable and are most likely a choking hazard.

My big issue with this game is the gameplay itself though, not the physical product. Playing the game is not very much fun. You do not have any real decisions to make while playing the game, so there is not really any sense of risk or reward. Even one of my friends who is a Lovecraft enthusiast had little interest in playing more than one round of this game where we have played hundreds of games of Zombie Dice. You might be interested in picking this up for the dice itself and possibly using it in some other way, but I can't really recommend this game as it is.
