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.


The first time I ever played this game was actually during a power outage on a laptop. the perfect environment for the Lovecraft universe, right? I'll be up front and admit my knowledge on the Lovecraft mythos is limited aside from Cthulu and Colors from Space.
Now, onto why I'm actually reviewing this- recently a friend of mine got addicted to the game 'Elements' (a flash game that plays remarkably similar to this). Reminded of that stormy night months ago (I believe sometime last October or November; why I didn't review this then is beyond me), I desperately searched the Portal for this game.
As I thought, it was as fun and unique as it had been when I first played it. The creatures were horrific, and the struggle to stay sane as I battled my opponent was still as fast paced as ever. The graphics are nice, too.
Overall, a nice time killer and I highly recommend.
