Pandemic: Reign of Cthulu – ZMAN Games
Beings of ancient evil, known as Old Ones, are threatening to break out of their cosmic prison and awake into the world. Everything you know and love could be destroyed by chaos and madness. Can you and your fellow investigators manage to find and seal every portal in time? Hurry before you lose yourself to insanity.
In Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, you’ll experience the classic Pandemic gameplay with an horrific twist that’ll have you face ten Old Ones, each threatening the world with their unique powers. As players take on the roles of investigators attempting to seal a series of portals before monsters of unspeakable horror pour into our world there is, of course, a high risk of the investigators losing their own minds.
Instead of curing diseases like in the original Pandemic, players seal portals and shut down cults in the classic New England fictional towns of Arkham, Dunwich, Innsmouth, and Kingsport. Can you and your fellow investigators manage to find and seal every portal in time? Hurry before you lose yourself to insanity and the evil that lurks beneath your feet…
It’s Pandemic, but with several rules twists, enough that this isn’t just the same game with a new theme pasted on. Players are trying to close the four gates to hell, rather than curing four diseases, and players take on specific roles as in the regular game—but players can lose their sanity as the game goes on, and the Old Ones, which take place of Epidemic cards, have unique powers that will alter game play as well. It’s due out on September 2nd.Share This:
