    Roll for Great Old Ones: In this cooperative roll & write game set in the Lovecraft universe 1-4 investigators must work together against ancient evil powers.

    Roll for Great Old Ones is a unique game in which players draft dice out of a general pool to program actions on their investigator board. Thus leaving behind "cultist dice", which will trigger actions during the scenario.
    The investigators have to negotiate which dice to use and which to leave behind, knowing quite well what might happen.

    In this cooperative game you will use dice to program actions, collect experience, earn free actions, learn powerful skills, use asymmetric powers and help each other to beat the evil cultists.
    As a team you will have to work together to find all necessary clues before the cultists can successfully perform the ritual and our beloved world is doomed.

    You either win together or seal the fate of all mankind!
