If Cthulhu were on Park Place, would he pay rent?

The website doesn’t reveal much, but the idea’s intriguing: Necronomonopoly. Yep, it appears to be a twist on the family game of real estate hoarding, with the goal of grabbing land being overshadowed by the goal of staying sane. For $10, you can download the satirical horror boardgame and get a look at components the website doesn’t show… like the game board, or a sample card, or something. C’mon, give us a taste. [EDIT: Oops. The tastes are there, I just missed ’em.]

Wicked-Dead press release follows:
Necronomonopoly Now Available!

Necronomonopoly is a satirical game about land-grabbing the Cthulhu Mythos. Players move around the board, collecting properties and artifacts – all that their Sanity can handle. At the same time playes must dodge Monsters and Great Old Ones. Players move clockwise and Monsters move counterclockwise, knocking the marbles out of the players’ heads.

As soon as a player loses all his Sanity, he goes insane and becomes a Cultist, moving counter-clockwise like a Monster, robbing the other players of their Sanity. The object? Be the last sane player in the game!

Necronomonoply comes with a four-piece board and the Mythos Deck. Some assembly required. Players must supply their own money and tokens.

Order yours at the Wicked-Dead Brewing Company!
