As you know, for our submission for PAX South we had created a how to play video. The video gave a brief description of the game and the rules on how to play. For our game play test night this past weekend I played it for everyone thinking they would just get the rules. Kinda really wrong there! Was it the alcohol or the quality of the video or just my irritating voice? No idea but it was clear it was time to write the official rules for the game and get them out of my head. So I started today, and let me tell you.…this is hard!
I started with a search online on how to write rules. There were a few good resources but none that were exactly what I was looking for. So I cracked open a few games around the house and looked them over for inspiration.

So with this in hand I will putting together the official rules for Lil’ Cthulhu in the next few days. OK I think I will need a drink for this!
