Escape from the terrible city of the old ones or wind up Cthulhu chow in Lost in R'lyeh!
A unique card game of strategy and hand management for 2-6 players, Lost in R'lyeh drops players directly into H.P. Lovecraft's famous short story, "The Call of Cthulhu", just as they've mistakenly awoken the Elder God from his eons-long slumber deep in the incomprehensible city of R'lyeh. The goal of the players is simply to escape with their lives but they must work quickly as the last to escape is doomed to be lost forever, swallowed up by the cyclopean city and it's horrid denizen.
During the game, players each have 5 escape cards and one ultimate escape card which they must protect with horror cards and elder signs until they can deplete the central deck from which everyone draws and are allowed to start getting rid of the remaining cards in their hands and use their escape cards to flee R'lyeh. Events and special abilities activated by playing sets of horror cards can effect the game's progress by changing turn order, forcing another player to draw cards, or banishing cards (even the vital escape cards) from the game entirely.
Whether you're a fan of H.P. Lovecraft and Cthulhu Mythos or just love a good strategy card game with great depth of play despite a gentle learning curve, Lost in R'lyeh is absolutely a game worth checking out. Stop by the store and have look today!
