Some time ago we introduced "Whispers from R'lyeh", our first Ouija board thanks to our backers support. More recently we launched the Eldritch Tarot, a set of 22 Major Arcana cards magnificently illustrated. We decided to go a step further and create a full cult set to worship Cthulhu and communicate with the Old Ones as it should be! This is our new Talking Board with a magnificent planchette and matching candleholders.
The new board has been designed in Transylvania with the great artist Luciana Nedelea. The result is astonishing: the new board is loaded with impressive details, headed by Cthulhu and guarded by the Nightgaunts.
Wood or cardboard?
This board is presented for the first time in two editions: one, printed in compact cardboard and second, the luxury edition in wooden board. If you want a lightweight board with attention to printed details, the cardboard board may be your choice. If you want a superior touching and authentic feel… the wood will impress you!
To go a step further we created the luxury edition on wood (16mm thickness), in which we get an incredible touch and old feeling that give this board some unique characteristics. Take a look to these details, directly from the workshop:
A board of this magnitude could not be used with any planchette... that is why we created a unique piece of resin following the design of the board with all luxury of details sculpted by Marta López from the Monster Box with as much care and horror as the one that endows our sculptures collection.
The new planchette is hand-painted and comes with a 33mm lens to read the messages on the board. For better protection and storage, each planchette will be delivered in a cloth bag stamped with the Necronomicon, with a cord closure.
This collector's outfit would not be complete without the amazing Cthulhu Skull candleholders that complete the setting for the ritual. Like the planchette, they are hand-sculpted, resin-made and hand-painted pieces; there's one candle included to start your cult! (you can add more candles to your reward; anyways, spare candles of this size can be easily found). Size: 8x8x6cm (3.2x3.2x2.4").
Please choose your reward to check the shipping cost for your country. As usual, part of the real shipping cost is subsidized by Cthulhu Project to thank our backers support.

For this project we brought together a great team of talented artists and collaborators with the aim of creating a unique set of high quality. The board is illustrated by Luciana Nedelea from Transylvania, and the luxury wooden boards will be produced by El Troquel workshop. The resin pieces are sculpted by Marta López from The Monster Box and hand painted by the artist, piece by piece. The Major Arcana Eldritch Tarot is illustrated and created by Sara Bardi. The entire project has been designed and coordinated by Cthulhu Project.
The Cthulhu Project has previously produced, with the help of our backers, collector's products like the Cthulhuoshkas, Mountains of Madness statuettes, Whispers from R'lyeh, The Light of R'lyeh, the Commemorative Idol, and board games like Cthulhu Crusades or The Writer.
All contents are based on the works by H. P. Lovecraft. All our job at Cthulhu Project is a tribute to our favorite writer and all our projects are produced with the support of our backers.
All pieces are created with a lot of LOVE and MADNESS. Thanks!
Risks and challenges
During the last months we have finished the artwork for the board and the sculpts, and we prepared the moulds and prototypes for the planchette and the candleholders, so we have advanced most of this project. The planchette and the candleholders will be produced in resin and hand painted. Once the campaign is over we will start the production process. We have experience in production and worldwide shipping through several projects, so you can rely on us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
