Pandemic Reign of Cthluhu combines the mechanics of the game Pandemic with the science fiction of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos.
You may have already heard of the upcoming Pandemic Reign of Cthluhu, but do you have any idea of what you’ll be up against? The old ones are horrific ancient beings, rulers of the cosmos. They are about to unleash their madness on our world, leaving nothing behind but chaos and desolation. Beings of ancient evil, known as Old Ones, are threatening to break out of their cosmic prison and awake into the world. Everything you know and love could be destroyed by chaos and madness. Can you and your fellow investigators manage to find and seal every portal in time? Hurry before you lose yourself to insanity.
In Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, you’ll experience the classic Pandemic gameplay with a horrific twist that’ll have you face ten Old Ones, each threatening the world with their unique powers. As players take on the roles of investigators attempting to seal a series of portals before monsters of unspeakable horror pour into our world there is, of course, a high risk of the investigators losing their own minds.
Instead of curing diseases like in the original Pandemic, players seal portals and shut down cults in the classic New England fictional towns of Arkham, Dunwich, Innsmouth, and Kingsport. Can you and your fellow investigators manage to find and seal every portal in time? Hurry before you lose yourself to insanity and the evil that lurks beneath your feet…
In order to win the game you need to work as part of a group to seal the four gates before anymore evil can pour out of them. There’s a gate in each town and you can seal it by collecting enough clue cards in that area’s colour, standing on the gate and spending an action to close it.
Pandemic Reign of Cthluhu can be played with between 2-4 players aged 14+ and can be played with an estimated time of 40 minutes. Available here.
