Cthulhu Wars is a highly asymmetrical board game in which players, rather than trying to stop ancient and unspeakable horrors from being unleashed into the world, are the ancient and unspeakable horrors fighting each other for dominion over the Earth. Each round, players will gather power based on how many gates they control and how many human cultists they have on the board, then use that power to move, summon monsters, fight, conquer gates, and unlock spell-books that give each faction even more unique abilities.

A game of Cthulhu Wars usually takes about 30 minutes to teach, and about 60-90 minutes to play. In my experience, new players often spend the first game figuring out their faction, and are often caught unawares by the special powers of the other factions. It is my intention to teach the game, and then play two or three games with the same group (thus the long play length time), giving players a chance to really see what the game is all about.
