The sequel is now up on Newgrounds - you can check it out by selecting the 'also by this author' in the bottom left.

A brand new version of the card game The Necronomicon, with a new game mode, and full of new art drawn up by various contributors. There are now 30 ranks to beat, and the game ends when either you get to 30 before your opponent, or they beat you up to rank 30.

Bug fixes, game changes and tweaks, and a whole new game mode called Challenge Mode. Defeat the opponent in a series of scenarios where the odds are stacked against you.

Also includes some rule changes and creatures now have additional abilities.

** NEW - . - MASSIVE update to how the cards are dealt out. Basically what happens now in the fix is that you both have a deck of whatever amount of cards are unlocked, and each card will be seen once by each of you. There will be no duplicate cards appearing until your deck has been exhausted and shuffled, and so the only dups you will see are the cards you held from the previous shuffle. Makes everything much more balanced.

Kind of sucked

Not that I mind a challenging game, but this one has gotten impossible. The computer played three elder signs in one game. It was very frustrating and no longer fun. I like that it is harder to play, but dude....make it at least winnable.

Loved it before, love it again

I enjoy the changes you made to this game. The creature changes were really good and the new art is not bad at all. That being said, I believe you should put a lot of weight into what the user Arcengal said. He is absolutely correct in all what he says. As a long time player of card games, I know that these facts are true. Also, as I have said earlier, Taint being always cumulative is not so good. It overpowers taint, so that whenever you're tainted, you keep cursing and praying for a remove taint spell. Now, if taint affected sanity, or if some cards were cumulative (such as Curse of Cthulhu) while others weren't (such as King in Terror or Blessing of Hastur), that would make it much more balanced. Also, one last note: Betrayed should have a sanity cost. In fact, it should probably have sanity cost 2, because that way, not only is it useful when your opponent has no creatures (discard to gain 2 sanity) it also compares fairly with the other damage spells that use arcane.

This is getting better and better!

The new special abilities of the monsters are a nice touch.
Any ETA on when we can expect to see those further changes?

One thing I still find somewhat bothersome is the fact that the computer often makes really dumb plays, like playing healing cards when he's at full health, banishing/dispel cards when I have nothing in play to dispel, or even playing an attack card when my creature's counter attack will automatically kill him. While this, of course makes the game a bit easier (just a bit) it also reinforces the notion that winning or losing is not determined by a good strategy, but just by pure luck.

And "luck" is what the computer seems to have the mother lode of...
Yes, I am aware that this is probably a subjective observation, but it does seem like the computer just keeps getting exactly the cards it needs in any given situation.

Also, it seems like the computer never ever uses the Discard function. It would rather play a card that has no effect, but costs it Sanity, rather than discard the same card and gain sanity for it...

Oh, and please try to find new pictures for Blast 'Em! and Tommy Gun. The other cards' artwork is really cool, and in some cases even seems to fit the style of thegame better than the FFG art you had used before. But these two really stand out of the crowd, and not in a good way!
