Necronomonopoly

NecronomonopolyNecronomonopoly is — surprise! — a Lovecraft-themed parody of Monopoly,

Players move around the board, collecting properties and artifacts – all that their Sanity can handle. At the same time players must dodge Monsters and Great Old Ones. Players move clockwise and Monsters move counterclockwise, knocking the marbles out of the players’ heads.

As soon as a player loses all his Sanity, he goes insane and becomes a Cultist, moving counter-clockwise like a Monster, robbing the other players of their Sanity. The object? Be the last sane player in the game!

Kids of Catan

Mayfair Games publishes a kids version of Settlers of Catan called, appropriately enough, Kids of Catan. Reviews of the game indicate its largely a game where everything is random with essentially zero strategy (which, of course, is also one of the criticisms that many people have of Settlers). Also a bit on the expensive sided at $49.

Do You Worship Cthulhu?

Do You Worship Cthulhu? is a board game released by Toy Vault designed for 5-30 people.  According to Toy Vault’s description of the game,

This fun party game for a group of 5-30 people to play, and the rules can be learned in less than 3 minutes. One person acts as moderator, overseeing a village of people, one (or more) of which are secretly Cthulhu worshippers! The worshippers begin sacrificing other villagers one by one. Deceive your friends and lie through your teeth while experiencing a truly unique game.

Basically Werewolf with a Cthulhu skin.
