I must warn you about a threat to our world. Long before mankind roamed this earth, there lived great and terrible beings. Even a single of these ancient beasts held the power to enslave or even destroy the world. When they entered a state of hibernation, humanity was allowed to prosper. Even now however, their power infects mankind. Weak-minded men have fallen under their control and formed Cults dedicated to each Elder God’s revival. You must prevent them from succeeding or the world will be lost. - Walter P Matherson

What is in the Expansion?

This Expansion picks up where the original game left off. You are an investigator battling the Cthulhu Minions and Horrors in a desperate attempt to defend our world from the insanity that lies Beyond the Veil!

For those new to The Cards of Cthulhu... it is a card game for 1 to 4 players. It uses the same rules for 1 player as it does for 2 to 4 players, so it is a true solitaire game, not a game adapted for solitaire play. When playing with more than one person, you play as a team against the system.

Component List...

108 Cards

   - 8 Gates

   - 36 Minions

   - 12 Horrors

   - 4 Investigators


   - 22 Investigations

   - 9 Items

   - 10 Cult Powers

   - 1 Unassigned

1 Mounted Cult Board

1 Player Help Sheet

Here is the main video from The Cards of Cthulhu Kickstarter...

Beyond The Veil expands on the core game and gives you more of everything. More Investigators. More Minions. More Horrors. More Followers. More Items. More Gates. And a New Cult Board.

5th Cult

This expansion also adds a 5th Cult Board for Nyarlathotep!

Additional Minions, Horrors, and Gates are added for each Cult. This gives each Cult a different feel. Cthulhu excels at bringing Horrors into play, Nyarlathotep has an abundance of Gates, and so on.

Investigations & Cult Powers

Beyond The Veil also introduces 2 new types of cards: Investigations and Cult Powers!

Investigation cards are side adventures your Investigator and Followers can track down in order to gain valuable advantages needed to save the world. However, each Investigation has an element of danger and a harsh consequence if failed!

Cult Power cards give each Cult its own feel and mechanical abilities.

New Investigators

New Followers

New Items


If you would like one or more of these add-ons, simply change the amount of your pledge.

For example: If you'd like the Expansion, you'd pledge $30. You then decide that you would like to have your name on a Minion or Gate card ($50) and would like 1 Booster Pack ($10). You would adjust your pledge from $30 to $90.

You can have your name and quote printed on one of the cards in the game! This was a very popular option for the first game, and we're bringing it back for the expansion! For $50, your information will appear on a Minion or Gate card (limit 40 people). For $100, your information will appear on a Horror card (limit 10 people). Please note all information must adhere to DVG's family friendly policy.

You can have your name and likeness printed on one of the cards in the game! Thank you Ken and Travis from the first game! For $300, your information will appear on an Investigator card and you can help to design the look of the character and their ability! (limit 1 person). Please note all information must adhere to DVG's family friendly policy.

For $10 you can add a Booster Pack of Coins and Dice to your pledge! These are very useful when playing with multiple players!

Stretch Goals

Why Pledge?

You Get The Game First - When we receive games from the printer, all pre-order games will get shipped before any others! Because We Need You - We have covered the costs up until now, but we need your help to get the games printed.  

Stretch Goals

With you help, we can not only meet our funding goal, but exceed it, and when we do, we have cool extras and upgrades to expand this already awesome game.

Risks and challenges

Dan Verssen Games (DVG) has the knowledge and skills to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. We have published dozens of games. If you have any questions or queries, the people at DVG will be here to assist you as quickly as we can. If you would like to see the quality of the games we publish, please visit our website:

With several Kickstarter campaigns behind us, we are able to professionally deal with setbacks while keeping you, the backer, informed with what's happening every step of the way - and not just while the campaign is running. When funding closes and production starts, we aim to provide the most up-to-date information possible regarding each stage of the game's journey to your tabletop.

We believe that honesty is as important as regular contact with our backers. You can expect the very best from us, no matter what. As part of our honesty pledge, please be aware that we do not offer refunds after a Kickstarter campaign closes. We need the funds to pay the printer and to purchase the add-ons and stretch goals people have earned during the campaign. If you pledge, and later change your mind, that's okay, but you need to cancel your pledge before the campaign ends.

By working with high quality production facilities that we've dealt with during previous campaigns, we are confident that we'll be able to deliver the game in a timely manner. Our exacting standards mean that you're guaranteed to get a great game.
