INSANITY Player do not lose sanity in the same way. After performing certain actions, draw from the insanity deck. Many of the cards do not cause a loss of sanity. Those that do will change the player's ability to investigate, gamble, vote, accuse, research, and contribute.
GODS For the basic game use the 4 gods without special rules (Ithaca, Zahr, Bokrug, and Dagon). For a deeper game and even more replay value add in any number of the additional 8 additional gods included in the game.
Here are the 8 Gods with special triggers (advanced rules).
EQUIPMENT What does equipment do? Each equipment item will give an investigator a unique action to be used once during the game or in a few cases, up to 3 times.
THE NECRONOMICON When the chances of creating all 4 sigils before the clock reaches midnight looks bleak, there is something that can be done. Your team can vote to consult the Necronomicon. This is a dangerous and risky proposition. The Investigators may buy themselves some additional time, but failure will mean an immediate and gruesome end. AND one Investigator must volunteer to open the book and take on additional insanity.
CONTINUE TO PLAY EVEN IF YOU ARE FOUND OUT
No players are eliminated from the game. A discovered cultist is weaken (flip their player card over) and become a bit pesky. They can no longer vote (who would listen to them?), but they still need to be dealt with.

Comments on The Gate of R'lyeh from Board Game Buffet (Episode 20)
So what's this all about? I get a free game when I back The Gate of R'lyeh? Yup! You do! Sometimes you just need a portable, small, fast game. Agent 299 is an easy to learn game that gradually reveals more information as you play. Triggering the end game at the right time and not blowing your cover is the tricky part.
2-4 players about 10 minutes
10 cards in a packet

Risks and challenges
DPH Games has been in business since January 2013, in that time we have successfully created and distributed; Cache Me If You Can! The Geocaching Board Game (5/2013) 2 Expansion packs; Zombie Apocalypse Geocaching (10/13) and Superhero Geocaching (1/2015). Psychological Warfare (11/2014), CATS a sad but necessary cycle of violent predatory behavior (5/2016), and Affliction: Salem 1692 (8/2017). Our manufacturing/distribution network is in place.
We have faced the challenges of launching a new product and have a proven track record for bringing new games to market. We are hoping to ship this October, but sometimes there are delays with printing/shipping that are beyond our control. We have an excellent reputation for responding to our customers and keeping them informed every step of the way. We will continue to do so through this project.
