Cthulhu playing cards

Paul sez, "The gentlemen of the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society (who did the Call of Cthulhu film a few years ago) have produced a little something for the Holiday season: Lovecraftian Playing Cards. It's a 52 card deck (plus 2 jokers) of standard playing cards, but the face cards depict Cthulhu, Shub Niggurath and Nyarlathotep; the ace of spades has an Elder Sign and Lovecraft himself is the joker. All of them backed with a a suitable sigil of protection so you don't accidentally summon up something you can't put down.

(Thanks, Paul!)



  1. There are times that I don’t know what the hell you guys are talking about. That’s okay though, I’ll come back later.

  2. Dang, sold out….really wanted to get these for my son.

    His 7th grade geography project was to create a country, right down to its physical characteristics, people, culture,religion etc…he based his country on a re-risen Atlantis which worships Cthulhu and has primary exports of golden Cthulhu idols and Cthulhu plush toys.

    I’m very interested in what his teacher will give him grade-wise.

  3. I’ve always wondered why people don’t use more imagination when depicting Cthulhu. H.P. Lovecraft drew Cthulhu with 6 eyes, kind of like a spider, yet every picture of seen of… it(?) has only two.
