Twilight Creations Announces new Sci-Fi and Cthulhu Board Games has reported that Twilight Creations has announced two board games releasing in the first half of 2014.  Cthulhu!!! Hastur la Vista, Baby! will release in February, followed by Jupiter Rescue in April. We love a good Cthulhu board game!

Designed by Mark Major, Jupiter Rescue players take the role of rescue robots, launched into space to help the humans at the Jupiter Deep colony escape the “creeps,” an alien race that eats humans and multiplies out of control. Players work cooperatively to evacuate the colonists before they are converted into alien “creeps.”  The game is for 2 – 7 players, and takes 30 – 60 minutes to play.

The box contains 20 double-sided module tiles, 1 evacuation pod tile, 4 reference cards, 36 rescue cards, a six-sided die, and 127 plastic figures (7 player robots, 50 colonists, 60 creeps, 10 super creeps).



Set in the 1920s seaside town of Kingsport, Cthulhu!!! Hastur la Vista, Baby! pits players against the Cult of Hastur in the roles of investigators with some experience in mythos busting, which makes them a little mad already.  Players must work semi-cooperatively to find and sanctify ritual sites against the cult, while competing for control of relics and trying to maintain their own sanity while competing for ultimate power.

The box contains 20 tiles, 50 cards, 50 Byakhee, 50 cultists, 3 private detectives, 3 girl Fridays, Hastur, various tokens.  The game is for 2 – 6 players, no age limits or game length information was included.

About Unspeakable Words

Decode the ancient secrets of R’lyeh by forming words with the letters you find in this sanity-sapping letter game. The more angles that appear in the words, the greater their mystical value, but beware! For each word that is created, you must roll a sanity check against its value to see if the word’s power drives you mad!

Cthulhu Mythos themed.
