Found on the Net: Cthulhu Fluxx

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Well, here’s a card game I had not seen before: Cthulhu Fluxx. The official website provides the following description:

Someone has stolen the Necronomicon from the library at Miskatonic Univeristy, and a Farm in the hills is undergoing a horrifying Metamorphosis.

Lots of Changes at Innsmouth Free Press

We’ve got lots of changes coming to Innsmouth. Don’t worry! These are good changes!

Columns and television coverage
