Smash Up: The Obligatory Cthulhu Set is an expansion for the Smash Up card game with crazy Cthulhu stuff.

Just when you thought Smash Up might escape... the International Gaming Authority reminded the designers they were honor-bound to include Cthulhu in one of their products. So they set on to make the Cthulhu-est product ever which you are reading a description of now.

Smash Up: The Obligatory Cthulhu Set features crazy Cthulhu cultists, fishy Innsmouth locals, horrifying Elder Things, and good old Miskatonic University members (the Fightin' Cephalopods). To be certain the designers got it right, this set also includes a new card type fittingly known as Madness, that each of these groups use to various effects. But remember that Madness brings you power but at a price (joking!).

If you're ready to embrace the creatures beyond the understanding of mortal men, then shuffle up these guys with your pirates, bear cavalry, and others for the most awesome fit of crazed insanity you've had in a long time!

About Smash Up
The shufflebuilding game Smash Up starts with a simple premise: Take the twenty-card decks of two factions, shuffle them into a forty-card deck, then compete to smash more Bases than your opponents! Each faction brings a different game mechanism into play and every combination of factions brings a different play experience.

During play, Base cards (each with their own difficulties and abilities) are in play. You attempt to have the most power on the Base from your minions when the Base is smashed. When a Base is smashed, each player in first, second and third place scores points. Fourth place? Sorry, bro ? try harder next time.

Each game is a different throw-down! Is Smash Up a game you can live without? Not if you're awesome. Choose a side. Choose two! And start the carnage!
