Summary

From the designer's web site:

Necronomonopoly is a satirical game about land-grabbing the Cthulhu Mythos. Players move around the board, collecting properties and artifacts - all that their Sanity can handle. At the same time playes must dodge Monsters and Great Old Ones. Players move clockwise and Monsters move counterclockwise, knocking the marbles out of the players' heads.

As soon as a player loses all his Sanity, he goes insane and becomes a Cultist, moving counter-clockwise like a Monster, robbing the other players of their Sanity. The object? Be the last sane player in the game!

Comments / Trivia

This game is modeled after the game Monopoly, although they are not officially connected.

Necronomopoly is available in two formats: as a print-on-demand game, ordered from the publisher, with the game printed on heavy card stock; and as a print-and-play game, with the game made available in PDF format and printed by players. Unlike many other print-and-play games, this game has not been made available by the developer/publisher as a free download. In both cases, players are expected to provide their own accessories, such as dice and figures.

Not to be confused with other Cthulhu Mythos-themed variations on Monopoly such as The Doom That Came to Atlantic City or Monopoly: Cthulhu.
