Cultistorm is the expression of our respect and love for H. P. Lovecraft. Our project is more than just an ordinary cthulhu-style board game, this is a Lovecraftian gaming experience with literary and musical dimensions. Cultistorm will come in 3 boxes with 14 expansions, 500+ narrative scripts in an illustrated hardcover book, a hardcover Short Story Collection, a Soundtrack album by Graham Plowman, miniatures and some additional elements. Our game is a highly interactive gaming experience offering unique cooperative game mechanics where every player is of equal importance. Please support us on Kickstarter!

Dopeman is a not-so-family-friendly board game. Play as a power-hungry drug dealer trying to get rich quick. Deliver goods to your customers but watch out for the cops and rival dealers. They’ll try to take you down as you negotiate, bribe, and scheme your way to the top. Make the most money before time’s up, and you win!
