About this project
UPDATE: ALL MINIS add-on pack now available! Check the pledge levels on the right side.
Rise of Cthulhu: Battle for New York City, is a fun, easy, fast-paced battle game for 2 players. The Ancient ones and a group of Investigators fight in the streets of New York for the future of mankind.
Using the miniatures, character cards, and action cards, some players will play the role of investigators while others will be the ancient ones.
Choose which side you'll align with and challenge your friends for some great duels. The goal is to take control of the city by killing your opponent's characters. The first player to kill 5 characters wins. Each game lasts about a half hour and it's easy to learn and fun to play.
Here's a sample of the gorgeous cards and miniatures from the game:
We are passioned about playing cards, magic, and games. We design all of our products in house and for that reason we proudly value quality over quantity. This is our third Kickstarter project. Our most recent project was the Divine deck that was successfully funded here on Kickstarter last February.
Base Game contents:
- 52 Battle Cards
- 4 Action Cards
- 12 standard tokens
- 1 Game Board
- 1 Ultimate Guide For Survival from the Miskatonic University rulebook
All of the development work is done and the game is ready to go to print. It's a small and easy game to play, with beautiful comics illustrations and cool miniatures.
Battles take place in a game board that represents the streets. In one side the Gateway in the sky, in the other the Miskatonic University.
There are 18 characters in the base game, each with three special abilities. Players draw cards from their own decks and use them to attack, throw, or block the opponent from moving in the streets and arriving to the other side of the city.
The special condition cards add twists to the action of the game making it challeging to defeat all of your opponent's characters.

Where your contributions go:
Design the cards, print the decks, manufacture highly detailed miniatures, game packaging and game pieces, plus all of the rewards can be a hefty investment. All of our brand's products are manufactured in USA and Europe. We do not produce in China like 99% of the other companies do, as we don't want to compromise quality.
When it comes to quality... we have a passion for perfection.
Only you can make this new Lovecraft adventure come to life. It's time for Cthulhu to Rise!
Risks and challenges
We have not met any challenges during production of our previous projects, as we manufacture our products in the USA and Europe, where we have full control over production by visiting the locations where manufacturing takes place. For that reason we guarantee 100% the quality of our products.
This as always allowed us to ship to our backers one week after we get the manufactured rewards in stock.
The development is finished and the game is ready to print. With no delays from the printers, we will ship everything in July or sooner.
