The Necronomicon :
1. A fictional book of evil by Abdul Alhazred in 730 AD.
2. A single player, virtual collectible card game ala Magic The Gathering steeped in H.P Lovecraft’s nightmarish Cthulhu mythos.
Since it’s Games Thursday today, we’ll be talking about Number 2 of course
Using one of the seven cards (from of a total of 36 different cards) in your hand, you’ll get to summon hellish creatures, taint and corrupt your opponent thus damaging him every turn or blast him with arcane magicks in an attempt to literally drive him bonkers and whittle his lifepoints to zero. Watch out though because summoning some of the more powerful spells and creatures may pose a bigger peril to your sanity than your opponent’s actions
Aiding you in your mission to dominate your opponent and turn him into a slobbering wrecks are cards like Arkham Asylum and indescribable horrors like the a Dark Young Charge.
A quick trip to the asylum does wonders for the mind
If you like card-based games, this beautifully illustrated Flash game should keep you busy for a while. (BTW, do words like beautiful apply to these visions of a twisted imagination?)
Deck management would be a cool strategic addition to the game though since trusting your deck to luck doesn’t exactly do wonders for your sanity
