Lovecraftesque Cards

with deckbox

Lovecraftesque is the GMless storytelling game of brooding cosmic horror you’ve been waiting for. You tell the story of a lone Witness at the mercy of strange and terrifying events. The game helps you create a slow-building mystery, culminating in a climactic scene of horror.

- You create your own monsters and mystery that feel like something out of Lovecraft's notebook.
- All the players contribute clues to surprise and creep each other out.
- The rules ensure that the story flows seamlessly, as if an invisible GM were guiding it.
- There won't be any Mi-Go or Deep Ones—you'll get a completely fresh take on the genre.

This book includes everything you need to play, as well as scenarios and other material to inspire you.


This pack contains 5 handy reference cards for the main roles in Lovecraftesque (Witness, Narrator and three Watcher cards) and 20 Special Cards which allow you to break the normal rules of the game and make each session unique.

You must have a copy of the Lovecraftesque Rulebook to play the game.

Stupid question, but why the price disparity between this and ?

Originally it was because our website was using flat rate shipping which would be overpriced for a small deck of cards. We cut the product price to - in effect - subsidise the shipping.

However you'll see it's now marked out of stock, and that's also shipping-related. It's currently not economical to ship the cards to anywhere outside the US, and again our flat rate shipping can't distinguish US from non-US customers, so we've had to take it off the website for now. It's on my to-do list to set up our website with non-flat-rate shipping, at which point maybe it will come back in stock - albeit likely at a higher price as we'll no longer have to do the weird shipping subsidy thing.

Sorry, that was a long and boring answer, but for now you can't buy it on our website, is the long and short of it.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
