About this project

The Talking Board

A limited edition collector's product for our backers: a board to communicate with Cthulhu himself from the depths of R'lyeh! 

It is a finished game consisting of a high quality fitted board 37cm wide (14,6") and a resin planchette with the engraved figure Cthulhu, hand painted and then engraved (produced to exactly the same high quality as our previous idol). It will be printed in Spain, Europe, by a game board printer. 

The Planchette

The piece that is usually used to guide communication with fingers and select the letters on the board is a unique collector’s planchette, produced in resin and painted by hand and carefully engraved on both sides.

Since the planchette is produced by hand, rewards are split into different delivery times. It will be produced in Germany, Europe. Reserve your planchette as soon as possible!

Rare Edition

The Special Edition comes with gold painted planchette and ruby eyes:

 This special edition is limited to 50 units. 


This Cthulhu Talking Board will be a Limited Edition, since it is a collector's product, like our earlier Cthulhu Secret Idol.

About the costs and the Cthulhu Project

Most of the cost of the reward is intended to cover production (board, box, resin, painting, etc.) as well as the costs of the design, our collaborators and delivery; another portion covers promotion and Kickstarter commission. After covering all the expenses with the support of sufficient backers, we hope to make a small profit with which to continue financing the free activities that the Cthulhu Project offers to all Lovecraft fans: the on-line magazine (web), the free books service, the Lovecraft products guide (Cthulhu Shop), etc. as well as always to creating unique collector products with your support.

More about us

Cthulhu Project is an initiative dedicated to the diffusion of the work of Lovecraft, and in particular the Myths of Cthulhu, both for its current fans and to give new generations of readers the opportunity to discover it.

We create collector products with a passion but our regular work involves sharing Lovecraft news through our main website (cthulhuproject.com); offering a way to read Lovecraft’s books in a free format using any web-connected device (elovecraft.com); cataloguing Lovecraft products offered by creators worldwide, helping fans to make contact with original sellers (cthulhushop.com) and other activities related to Lovecraft and the exciting worlds that emerged from his fabulous imagination.

That represents a work carried out and kept for free for the community. Our original products, such as "Whispers from R'lyeh" or our previous Cthulhu Secret Idol, are creative solutions aimed to keep the whole project running and continuing to grow for Lovecraft fans.

Risks and challenges

Our previous project on Kickstarter was the Cthulhu Secret Idol, which was successfully produced and successfully fulfilled our backers.

We will be producing these rewards as soon as the project is successful, and the estimated delivery dates are based on the time required to print, cast, paint, pack, and ship them as we did in our previous project.
