The Cards Have Aligned, and R’lyeh Has Risen From the Sea...

Requires Smash Up Card Game Core Set


The International Gaming Authority reminded us we were honor‑bound to include Cthulhu in one of our products. So we set out to make the Cthulhu‑est product ever, which you now hold into your hands.

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 we 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!

New Factions: 

Cthulhu Cultists — Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn!

Innsmouth — You too can become a fish and live with Dagon below the depths! Come to the idyllic fishing village of Innsmouth, and the locals will welcome you happily into the fold. One way or another.

Elder Things — Beyond time. Beyond space. Beyond good and evil. Beyond card games. These unimaginable horrors have come to earth to kill followers and score bases, and they’re all out of followers.

Miskatonic University — The Fightin’ Cephalopods are ready to face whatever opponents come their way! With an excellent science program and a state-of-the-art library, who wouldn’t want to attend this school? After all, what could go wrong?
