Like most games of this sort, the mechanics themselves are quite simple and straight forward. Each player starts with 3 sanity tokens. The attacking player (the Caster) chooses who to attack (the Victim) and rolls the die. Deal with the result (see below) and then the Victim gets to respond by rolling the die and dealing with the result. The die is then passed to the next player and the sequence repeats. The game ends when only 1 player has any sanity left at the end of a turn. If no one has any sanity left, then Cthulhu wins!
The die has 5 different symbols on it, each with a different effect:
Yellow Sign – your target loses 1 Sanity to Cthulhu (put Sanity token in the middle of the table)
Tentacle – Caster takes 1 Sanity from the Victim (no matter who rolled it)
Elder Sign – you gain 1 Sanity from Cthulhu
Cthulhu – everyone loses 1 Sanity to Cthulhu
Eye – Choose any result above
This game (similar to Zombie Dice) is a great game to play when you have a few minutes to kill.
Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!!
