The idyllic seaside town of Kingsport has always been a bit sleepy but tonight’s dreams may just become tomorrow’s nightmares. The stars are finally right, and the ruthless Cult of Hastur is making a bid to summon an avatar of its dark god! All that stands in the way... is one small group of investigators, the only people smart enough to figure out what’s happening and dumb enough to think they can stop it.
Cthulhu!!! thrusts you into a desperate fight against elder forces from beyond space and time. You play the stalwart private detectives and quick-thinking girl Fridays who’ve stumbled onto the Cult’s plans, and it’s your job to find and sanctify enough ritual sites to prevent the avatar’s arrival. For good or ill, you’re already a bit unstable from years of mythos busting, and not above using the Cult’s relics yourself. You can resist the objects’ siren call long enough to save the world... can’t you?
Cthulhu!!!: Hastur La Vista, Baby! features an ever-changing map of downtown Kingsport, a 1920’s Lovecraft Country city besieged by deranged cultists, frightening creatures from beyond the stars, and an endless supply of mythos mayhem.

Every game is different, and the strategy evolves with every new tile that hits the table.
