Card game based on the Cthulhu Mythos.

Cthulhu is a licensed copyrighted property. 
This is merely a Fan Site. 

Reduce your opponent to zero Sanity points. 

Each player starts with 10,000 Sanity Points.

There are 3 types of creatures: 
1. Humans (also Men or allies: Can carry Weapons) 
2. Monsters (also Corrupt Humans and Living Dead and Avatars)
3. Major Powers (Great Old Ones, Outer Gods, and Elder Gods)
Note: Corrupt & LD Humans are treated like humans for 
summoning and carrying weapons, but otherwise treat them as Monsters. 
An Avatar is a lesser incarnation of a Major Power. 
Major Powers can never be used as Summoning Tribute. 

Many cards have a Sanity cost to use them or to put them into play.
This Cost is subtracted from the players remaining total sanity.  
Humans have no Sanity Cost.
The Cost to put a Monster or Major Power into play is half of its Force.  
The Cost to put an Item or Tome into play is its Force. 
The Cost to put a Location or Event into play is its Force. 
The Cost to use a Spell is equal to its Force. 
The Cost to use an Item is equal to its Force.
The Cost to use the special ability of a Tome is equal to its Force.
Note: When a Spell, Item, or Tome is used, flip it face down. 

Flipped cards can take no action. 
A card that recieves Delay Tokens is Flipped and 
cannot unflip until all the tokens are removed. 

The oldest player goes first. 
Each player is dealt 7 cards. 
Players cannot attack on their first turn. 

Players take turns. 
Each turn has 11 Phases: 
Day Phase
Draw Phase
Event Phase
Travel Phase
Find Phase
Spell Phase
Allies Phase
Weapons Phase
Horror Phase
Threat Phase
Night Phase

Unflip all flipped cards with no Delay tokens on them. 
If a card has delay tokens on it, remove 1 Delay token. 

Draw 1 card from your deck (or a common deck)
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it.

To Attach the weapon the user must have a Force equal to or
greater than the Force of the Weapon. 

You may Summon (Play) one Monster or Major Power card on your turn from your hand. 
The Monster or Major Power is placed Face up. 
Tribute Summons: Summoning a Creature with a Force of 800 or more requires 
One or more of your other creatures in play to be discarded (sacrificed) first.
The Sacrificed Creatures must have a total Force equal to at least half the 
Force of the creature being summoned. 

You may attack with none, some, or all of your creatures (attackers). 
If an attacker is unblocked, the target player loses Sanity equal to its Force. 
Your opponent may block with his humans and creatures (defenders). 
When Creatures are paired up, the creature with the lowest Force is destroyed. 
Humans cannot attack, they can only defend.
Invisible humans can attack. 
Flipped Creatures (and those with delay tokens) cannot Attack or Defend. 
Invisible attackers cannot be blocked.

(Limit 4 for Humans and Monsters)
A Deck may only contain one Major Power card. 
A Deck may only contain Avatars if they match the Major Power. 
A Deck must contain a minimum 4 Locations. 
Standard deck size is 40 to 60 cards. 

Spells cannot be cast from your hand. 
Spells must be attached to Tomes. 
A Tome can attach a number of Spells equal to its Force/100. 
Some Creatures and Items can Attach Spells. 
Spells can be used multiple times. 
Everytime you use a Spell, you lose Sanity equal to the Force of the Spell and 
Flip the Spell card. (Cards are unflipped in Start Phase) 
If a Tome is Flipped, the attached Spells can still be used. 

Items can be used multiple times.

This game is quite similar to an already published card game from the 
late 90’s called Mythos. Unfortunately, that fine game is out of print. 
This game is certainly in tribute to that one. 
Another published Cthulhu game is now out called Call of Cthulhu.  
So why design a card game that is very like two existing card games? 
Well first, at Warpspawn, we like to tinker, and make Things just the 
way we like them. This you cannot do as easily with already made games. 
Second its way Cheaper to do it this way. 
Third, we’re obsessed, a very Cthulhu-ish trait. 
Next topic is how this game (GOO) differs from the Mythos CCG: 
1. The Human Allies are all generic (No required Starting Locations)
2. The Story cards are removed (Decks in Mythos were built around these)
3. The Investigator cards are removed (They could be re-incorporated)
4. (Fiddly) Travel rules are removed (Gates not required to Summon Monsters)
5. The Locations are (mostly) generic
6. (Annoying) Phobia cards removed
7. Major Powers are now Creatures that can fight (Cool)
8. Languages removed (though knowing Atlantean and Glyphs was cool)
9. You can do more stuff on your turn (Don’t have to worry about opponents passing)
10. Spell Types removed (Another complication)
11. For some of the above reasons, Deck Construction is now 500% easier
Next topic is how this game differs from the Call of Cthulhu CCG:  
1. In COC the factions limit what you can bring out. No limits in GOO.
In COC you are limited to 4 Mythos factions, In GOO there are many major powers and 
their Minions you can play (Like Glaaki, or Mi-Go, or Serpent People, or Living Dead)
2. Victory and Casting costs are still a matter of Sanity Points in GOO. 
In GOO like the old Mythos game, you are still a lone Investigator who has need of 
both Human Allies and Mythos Threats (You can play 1 of each per turn in GOO). 
In COC there is a Fiddly Resource system and Victory is by capturing Storycards. 
Very different game mechanics associated with these two types of setups.
3. In GOO Tomes hold Spells which can be reused. 
4. GOO is of course do it yourself, make and modify your own cards. 

Why the high point values? 
I started this project as a cross between Cthulhu material and Yugioh mechanics.
Eventually I dropped the Yugioh stuff except for the high number values and the 
Idea of the tribute summon.

The resource side of a deck should have a balance of getting extra cards and 
of being able to put extra cards into play. The other side of the deck should 
be a balance of attacking Threats, and defenses to deal with opponent's threats.
