When you think Cthulhu, you think wacky. Right?

That game sounds both boring and terrible except for the speaking in tongues. Like Battlestar’s card contributing and then boring.

I would be afraid that after you have seen a madness card, it becomes a known quality. "Oh, he has the raise your hand card" and the fun would dissipate once you "know" all the madness cards.

I concur that "At the Mountains of Madness" is the best Lovecraft tale.

Sounds like a great late night convention game. I might have to pick this up before TrashFest.

"When you think Cthulhu, you think wacky. Right?"

Actually... no. When I think Cthulhu, the last thing that comes to mind is anything wacky or goofy. That said, I liked the description you gave of the game, but I had the same reaction that Wade did, in that the cards would become a known quantity too easily and the game would be just a routine of how to play around it, rather than play with it. I'm always extremely leery of Lovecraft-themed creations because I think there's such a wide divergence of opinion on the atmosphere of many of his stories. I would have expected this game to have more of a "ticking clock" mechanic than a puzzle to solve (which was one of my initial criticisms of Mansions of Madness. The 2nd Ed of that game seems ridiculously popular on BGG. /tangent)
