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.

I love these turn based games... this is a big improvement from the previous... I like how difficult it gets. I wish there were more games like this... any suggestions?... 5/5 10/10 here. :)

I played this game and its original on Kongregate and Newgrounds (mostly on Kongregate for the badges of which i only need the challenge ones!)

When i first played this game, i thought it was odd, but kind of i read the cards, the detail of artwork and the really cool phrases on each card really BROUGHT me into it...then i started to grasp the concept, and soon i went from rank 1 to 30 without dieing ONCE! (half luck, half skill)

I loved this game very much. I gotta say, 5/5 10/10 well done. I would work on a third one with maybe 3-5 new cards, and DEFINITELY. ONLINE PLAY!!!

Good Job.

nice game. I love the gameplay sound and graphics. I like the theme too. Hopefully when the next game comes out it comes with multilayer :) .

This game is great.
Beat the first one, and just beat this one.

The only thing that I thinks it lacks, is a multiplayer mode.
Whether that would be playing with someone you know, or just someone random on the internet, I'm not sure- but it'd be interesting.

Great game though, had lots of fun playing.
Should have had some sort of relation to Erich Zann- but that's not really Cthulhu

Terrific Improvement

I've played the original and 2.0 definitely improves on the game and its concept.

The balance changes to the cards makes them much more attractive. I especially like how the Life spells were toned down and the Summons that were bland in the original Necronomicon now have unique traits to make them much more attractive to use.

Another nice touch is how card-inflicted Taint is now cumulative as well.

I don't know if it was in the original game, but the Voluntary Discard button is very, *very* nice and the Sanity bonus for using it is very sweet. A prayer answered for players trapped by Agoraphobia with Arkham Asylum out of their reach.

I certainly hope there's going to be more cards and mechanics included in future versions.
