Watch This: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh4nSpV2n4k before you play, after that it should be pretty smooth sailing. I did not find the ingame tutorials particularly helpful.

I've never played the board game version of this, but I am a board game fan, so I took to this game pretty quickly. Great fun, played it with my girlfriend, we both played two different characters (though this game is not technically multiplayer). This game is hard, perhaps thats why it really gives me "roguelike" feels while playing. I really enjoyed it overall, I'd recommened it to friends looking to kill time. Unfortunately it being single player I feel the game loses some of the charm and fun that it would have as a board game played with friends.

A almost perfect digital version of the board game. It is very RNG, but that what makes it an intense experience. Either you win against the dark gods or you lose horrible and 99% of the time thats what you are gonna do. I would like to see an online multiplayer because playing with other makes it so you are not gonna die alone and just to make it a bit more "fun", make it so you can choose ancient one at random.

I like this game both digital and physical and this just scratched the board game itch. Have fun dying.

I almost did not recommend this game for two reasons: there is no multiplayer and zero achievements. However, single player is still entertaining and playable, for now. Also consider that the iPad/tablet version cost $5.99 (last I checked). I played the iPad version which cost me that much and only inluded Yig, Tsathoggua and Azathoth. The other Ancient Ones—Hastur, Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep and Ithaqua—were separate expansions that each came with a $2.99 price tag ($11.96 total plus the initial purchase comes out to $17.95...buying it on Steam with ALL content is amost $3 cheaper).

Still, the game in its current state would appear, to many, as lacking in replay value. A future expansion/update to add multiplayer and achievements is needed.

This game is hard. Like, even the easiest Old One will kill you multiple times before you finally win your first game. But when you do, it feels like you've actually suceeded against the impossible odds that face humanity in any good Mythos game. I highly recomend it and it makes a great time killer when you are just wanting to unwind. And remember. Just like in Dwarf Fortress, Losing Is Fun!

The game play heavily varies based on random draws. So you can play for 20 minutes then get a YOU LOSE set up with a couple of random bad draws.You can also get extremely easy random draws. So I never really felt like I won it just seemed random.

This could be a fun strategy game if your choices actually meant something. The random event draws were far more important than my characters or strategy. Disappointed.
