Cthulhu! Cthulhu! Cthulhu!

Follow the links to pages with detailed information about each game.

He's huge and unknowable. He's beyond evil, but he's definitely not nice. He'll suck out every bit of your sanity. Why are games about Cthulhu so much fun? Iä! Iä Cthulhu!


Munchkin Cthulhu

Munchkins have hacked their way through dungeons, kung fu temples, starships, haunted houses, and super-foes. Now they face their greatest challenge – Cthulhu! Will they survive? Will they retain their sanity? Will they . . . level up?

Munchkin Cthulhu is a stand-alone game that lampoons Lovecraft's Mythos and the horror gaming that surrounds it. Brought to you by Steve Jackson and John Kovalic, this set features four Classes – including the Cultist – and a lot of classic monsters from outside reality. And they all have Stuff you can take from their twitching bodies.

You can play Munchkin Cthulhu by itself, or combine it with any number of other Munchkin games for mind-bending silliness.


Cthulhu Dice Serving Cthulhu is fun . . . except for all those other cultists out to get you. So get them first!

Cthulhu Dice lets you drive your rivals mad . . . very, very quickly. Players take turns rolling the big, beautiful, custom 12-sided die, embossed with tentacles, Elder Signs, and more. Destroy your opponents' sanity! Better yet, steal it. But watch out for Cthulhu – when he comes up, he takes sanity from everyone! 18 glass Sanity marbles are included. Lose all your marbles and you're mad. The last sane cultist wins . . . unless everyone goes mad together. Then Cthulhu wins!

Cthulhu Dice plays in 5 to 10 minutes, and is fun for 2 to 6 players.


Giant Cthulhu Dice Everybody loved the giant foam Cthulhu Dice set that we made for convention demos! They begged and pleaded. It was driving us mad. Mad, I tell you!

So we gave in and made enough for everybody.

It's a 4" foam 12-sided die, with tentacles, Elder Signs, and Great Cthulhu himself. It's SQUISHY!

Giant Cthulhu Dice comes in four different colors. Instead of the glass beads that the original set used for Sanity, Giant Cthulhu Dice includes 18 "silly bands" in the shape of Great Cthulhu himself! Put them on your wrist, or your tentacle, or wherever you want. Go crazy!

It's perfect for outdoors or for waiting in line. Keep Giant Cthulhu Dice in your backpack and drive your friends mad outdoors, waiting in line . . . It even floats, not that there's any way you can tell which side is up in the pool. But don't let that stop you!


Illuminati In Deluxe Illuminati, secret conspiracies are trying to take over the world. Players take the part of the major conspiracies, and one of them is the Servants of Cthulhu . . . who win by destroying other groups. This explains so much about what we see on the cable news channels!


Cthulhu Dice Bag

When Cthulhu eats your sanity, you're in trouble. But when he eats your dice, he'll give them back.

The Cthulhu Dice Bag is soft plush, with far more eyes, tentacles, and wings than any ordinary dice bag. He'll hold dozens of ordinary six-siders or non-Euclidean polyhedrons in his zippered pouch. Or, of course, Sanity tokens from Cthulhu Dice. Or cursed jewels, or gravel, or bus tokens, or all of them together. Just remember that to get them out, you have to put your hand inside Cthulhu. If you are okay with that, this is the perfect dice bag for you.

Cthulhu Dice Bag won the Origins Award for Best Hobby Game Accessory of 2010.


Plush Tentacle It's a 30" long Plush Tentacle that's posable. Why did we do it? Because Evil Stevie likes tentacles. And this one is soft, and furry.

Make it a fashion statement, poking out of your shirt. Use the loop in back to hang it from your belt. Put it in your next haunted house . . . or in your cubicle! Threaten your other plush toys, just to remind them who's the boss.

It's completely posable. Bend it to your own wicked will.


Cthulhu Sherpa Have you seen the mark of Cthulhu? Now control . . . the marker of Cthulhu!

This solid metal case turns a regular disposable pen or marker into a designer writing tool. The Cthulhu Sherpa will last for YEARS. Unless you put it down and take your eyes off it. In that case, it will probably be gone in 60 seconds. It's that cool.

It's purple. Very purple. It carries the image of Great Cthulhu and the "Game Over / Cthulhu Wins" slogan. A perfect gift for the cultist in your life . . . or gloat over it yourself!

Only at Warehouse 23!

Chez Cthulhu Prepare for an encounter with the most sanity-blasting entities in all the dimensions . . .

Your roommates.

Chez Cthulhu brings the horror of Lovecraft's Mythos right into your apartment . . . as if the leftovers from the Pizza with Absolutely Everything weren't bad enough. Work your job – will you be a Morgue Janitor, a Sanitarium Guard, or a Gravedigger? Buy things to give you Slack, like a comforting Straitjacket . . . or some Friendly Tentacles to make your day a little brighter. Invite people over to your room . . . and sacrifice them! And Nookie . . . don't forget the Nookie. Preferably without the Ectoplasmic Slime.

Chez Cthulhu combines the classic Chez Geek system with everyone's favorite Elder God. . . and adds a new Madness mechanic. This set includes 110 cards and two blanks, a die, and counters for both Slack and Madness.


The Stars are Right

When the stars are right, the Great Old Ones will return. If the stars aren't right, it's up to you to move them around!

In The Stars Are Right, you take the role of a cultist, summoning Lovecraftian horrors from beyond time and space.

The sky is represented by a grid of star tiles . . . and you can change them. Invoke minor creatures to flip over a tile or push a row, creating the correct patterns to summon more and more powerful ones. Eventually, you'll build a horde of Servitors who can chain flips, pushes, and swaps together, rearranging the entire sky to your whims. Change the skies, summon a Great Old One, and win!

The Stars Are Right is a card game for two to four players, ages 12 and up, with a playing time of less than one hour. The cards are hilariously illustrated by Goomi (Munchkin Cthulhu 3 – The Unspeakable Vault).

Summon the Great Old Ones, who will shower you with power beyond your dreams. Or perhaps they'll eat you. Or both.


Chibithulhu Cute. Cuddly. Sanity-blasting. Chibithulhu.

This soft and huggable plush figure features huge, adorable eyes, angel wings . . . and Cthulhu's trademark tentacles. It's made of all-new materials, and is machine washable.

Of course, this toy includes a special rule, which will help you during Munchkin Cthulhu games.
