Players will craft a cooperative story in the horror Mythos universe of H.P. Lovecraft. Victory will be based around playing story cards to acquire the most investigator and cultist tokens to awaken the player's Ancient One. As players collect these tokens, they cause the awakening of the Ancient One card while also insuring the best pick of an Investigator for the final epic battle if another player awakens the Ancient One first. Once the Ancient One awakes, the player who achieved that goal now works to crush the other players in an epic battle where only one will survive.
