MONSTROUS - the game of mythic mayhem

You are wrathful Greek gods. The faithless mortals are down there. And you have monsters. Get MONSTROUS! 

This is Archaic Greece. Faith in the Pantheon is waning.

Zeus commands you gods to hurl your mythic monsters down, hit the faithless mortals' cities, strike fear into their hearts, and send them running back into the temples!

Throw your monsters with cunning, combining their powers with location and other monster powers. Wreak havoc, edge out the other gods, and restore the most Faith in the Pantheon so Zeus declares you the winner!

'Monstrous is an exciting brawl with fantastic art and tricky game play that I have had a blast playing. I can’t recommend this game enough.' 
Rob Cramer, Giant from the North - Full Review

The Olympians grow ever more wrathful and open the gate to dread Tartarus itself. This is their Monstrous power game.

In this MONSTROUS expansion you get the Tartarus location from which you can unleash ancient monsters of incredible power such as Cerberus, Chimera, Medusa, the Minotaur and more. But the most colossal threat is the Kraken whose many tentacles are given to all the gods to throw and clear the world of lesser monsters, before the Kraken itself attacks to really get those mortals pouring back into the temples. 

MONSTROUS: RELEASE THE KRAKEN! is coming soon. Sign up to be warned!
