Great Cthulhu! Hastur the Unspeakable! Only ONE can rule the apocalypse!
Wrestlenomicon is a card game of the Great Old Ones battling for world domination. It sets up and plays in minutes. But it has enough tactical depth for the hardest of hardcore cultists. Set up your attacks ahead of time on the Attack Track. More moves bring an attack closer to Ground Zero. That’s where it slams your foe and delivers the pain!
Dennis Detwiller and Shane Ivey, the authors of Delta Green and The Unspeakable Oath, bring a huge mix of even huger attacks like “Jet Fighters to the Face,” “Carnage in Carcosa,” “I Come in Pieces,” and the vicious “Cassilda’s Thong.”
Legendary developer Rob Heinsoo and the team at Fire Opal Games bring the rules that let Wrestlenomicon run from tentacles-and-pretzels fun to furiously thinky strategy.
Artist Kurt Komoda makes every tarot-sized card a work of cringing beauty and disgusting hilarity.
You best start setting up your attacks, because Wrestlenomicon is coming for you!
Wrestlenomicon is a card game of the Great Old Ones fighting over the end of the world. Cthulhu! Hastur! Only ONE can rule the apocalypse!
Become a Great Old One and slam, smash, and obliterate your opponent. Each deck of cards represents a unique Great Old One. Th core game includes a deck for CTHULHU—the Ageless Abomination! the South Seas Smasher!—and another for HASTUR, the insane and unspeakable force behind the King in Yellow.
Wrestlenomicon is simple. On most of your turns, you play an attack card. But unlike most games, attack cards don’t take effect right when you play them. You build up attacks to demolish your foe when the stars (and cards) are right.
First, put the card on the Attack Track. Next turn, when you put another one on the track, move the previous card closer to Ground Zero. When you move a card all the way to Ground Zero, it delivers the pain!
This is a battle across time and space, and you see the enemy’s attacks coming long before they hit you. The question is whether you can properly counter-attack—and keep the enemy from slamming you back.
Wrestlenomicon comes with the Cthulhu deck, the Hastur deck, cultist cards for each deck, Attack Track cards, and more.
Wrestlenomicon is published by Arc Dream Publishing, developed by Arc Dream Publishing and Fire Opal Games, and features art by Kurt Komoda.
