Review of Fast & Fhtagn: A Game of Cthulhoid Street Racing

Review of Fast & Fhtagn: A Game of Cthulhoid Street Racing

The Lovecraftian racing game that challenges your sanity

    In board game stores today, you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a game that utilizes H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos.

It’s no surprise that we’ve […]
