Love the Cthulhu Mythos and this game is fun, can't get enough Lovecraft!
Perfect game for taking a break
Fun and intuitive play, easy to pick up, and doesn't require a lot of time or investment to get good cards. Not nearly as much of a cash grab as other free games, everything can be acquired easily without spending money.
Glad to see a new update, hope they add more!
Great H.P. Lovecraft inspired game
Fun game with lots of promise. However, not giving it a higher rating because the combat modes can be a little unfair, CPU players think almost 3 moves ahead and will almost win after the second turn. Big waste of time even trying to play the battles requiring 10 sanity because they will just beat you and waste sanity. Kind of frustrating that the game can cause so much grief over just a tic-tac-toe mini game.
