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.

Very fun, entertaining and easy to learn.

I was really skeptical about this game - I mean, I never really was in the Cthulhu Mythos, I never really understood any of it, but I was bored and decided to give this game a try. I've played other TCGs like Yugioh, MTG: Planewalkers 2012, so it didn't take me a long time 'till I figured out how to play this one. And after I lost a few games, I got aggravated and decided to finish this game, no matter what. About 12 hours later (No, I wasn't playing it for 12 hrs straight!) I managed to beat this game. I have to say that I loved the strategy in it, and I have also to admit I had a lot of fun while playing it.
As someone pointed out before me, I also think the A.I. is making sometimes wrong decisions, for example when I play the Blackmail card, the A.I. decides to discard 'Goat of the Black Woods'. Why? It's the most powerful creature card in the whole deck.
Aside from the flawed A.I. my score is as follows:
Highest Arcane: 19; Highest Elder Sign: 13; Highest Taint: 20; Highest Attack: 28; Number of times Insane: 6; Final total score: 2765, Final Rank 30 - Great Cthulhu.

If you ever decide to make this game into a stand-alone and sell it, I'll make sure to buy a copy of it.

I give you a 10/10 and 5/5. You deserve it.

wonderful game

Better when you manage to skip a rank or two above your opponent.
I know challenge mode is suppose to be a challenge but for most of them it might as well be "game over, you lose, hahaha". 20 tries and I get 1 shot down.
Hope to see something similar in the future
