"May I ask you about how much you worship our Lord Cthulhu?"

Elder Sign combines two things: HP Lovecraft's universe and deep, really deep board gaming. If you dislike one or the other, leave now or forever hold your peace.

In short, this game is about some unpronounceable ancient evil Lovecraftian gods looking for their way to reach this plane of existence and wipe mankind off. A group of bold adventurers must prevent it by exploring a museum and controlling several cursed artifacts. At first you can play on easy difficulty, but two additional difficulty settings can be unlocked via a visit to the in-app shop where you can exchange out-app money for the aforementioned add-ons.

More info: it's a dice game, but there are also cards and a randomly generated board (museum). Every character has their own characteristics, which are quite hard to understand at first. Gameplay is complicated and requires lots of attention.

Graphics get well along the game, giving a noir feeling without losing the board game essence. It's a very good board game, and as such, will be loved by those few who get it and understand it's very complex gameplay, but dismissed by the rest.
