Not much for your money Dec 29, 2008
By Hank the Hobo
I received this as a gift for Christmas. I'll start by saying the game itself is interesting and fun -- if you can actually get enough people together to play. You have to have at least 5 people. Also, you hardly get anything for the amount of money you spend -- you get a tiny box, and the only contents are a stack of cards and one fold-out page of instructions.
The cards only serve to let players know what role they play (villager, cult member, seer, etc.) You could easily just write the roles on pieces of paper. The rules are incredibly simple (they fit on a single small piece of paper), so that gameplay is very limited.
Honestly, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. It feels more like the kind of game you can find directions for free online. Again, this isn't really a board game, and it isn't really card game, as the cards don't really serve any purpose once you are assigned your role. If you pay $20 for this, you're going to be disappointed when you open the box...

Limited use opportunities, not collectible artwork-wise, super-simple rules Jul 08, 2008
By K. Tkacs
I probably shouldn't review this, since I've never played it, but I did buy it, and Amazon keeps begging me to `be the first.' As a Lovecraft fan, I ordered this on reflex without much research. Only after it arrived did I notice the fine print that it requires a room full of people to play - there are no two-person or `solitaire' rule sets - it's not that kind of game. In fact, the cards are hardly necessary at all - after reading the rules you realize that you can practically play this game by just ripping some strips of paper and handing them around. The fun, it appears, comes from it being a social activity and the cards are very simple props. Sadly, I can't remember the last time I had a dozen Lovecraft fans all in one room at one time, looking to play a party game, so this will probably just sit on the shelf forever.
An good retelling of a classic game Jun 17, 2012
By Ralph M.
In case this is not clear, this game is simply a re-labeling of a classic party game called "Mafia". Another version of the game is available as a cardgame called "Werewolves of Miller's Hollow". These are all the same basic game, and you can read about it on Wikipedia under "Mafia (party game)".
In truth you could play this game without buying an actual copy of it, as all you need are cards or slips of paper with different classes on them (villager, seer, etc.). However, it can still be nice to buy an official version in order to get helpful game rules and nice cards.
"Do you Worship Cthulhu" includes very large cards, which I think is a nice touch. The art on them is quite nice as well, though all twenty or so villager cards have the same picture, which seems like a waste. Missing are several of the special classes you get with Miller's Hollow, but you'll also get a few that Miller's Hollow doesn't have. With DYWC, you get villagers, worshipers, a seer, protectors, and vigilantes. I think protectors and vigilantes make good optional classes. They perform better than the similar classes of Witch and Hunter from Miller's Hollow. I do find myself missing the sheriff and matchmaker from Miller's Hollow, but that's no trouble-- just draw some hearts on a villager card to make a matchmaker, and buy a plastic sheriff's badge for the sheriff.
This game is best played with as many people as possible. Playing with fewer than six can be a tad lackluster, but a group of eight is good enough to have a very good time.
This game requires a lot of bluffing, talking, and role-playing, so, frankly, your nerdy friends will probably love it. Someone not used to the above skills, however, might find it a little too close to larping for their tastes.
Great Fun For Geeks Apr 09, 2011
My first introduction to this game was at a comic/gaming shop in town. Everyone seemed to be down with things early that night so we got the whole store together (probably about 20 people are so) and played this game. It was actually a lot of fun. It's definitely a social game for geeks. You don't have to be a Lovecraft fan to enjoy it. It's a little bit like heads up seven up to be honest. I imagine with a little imagination it could be turned into a very fun drinking game.
Fun, but 30-90 minutes is misleading Nov 15, 2010
By E. Kendall
We played for the first time this weekend with 9 (plus mod) and 10 (plus mod) players. We got 5 or 6 games in in less than an hour. Maybe for a game with more than 15 players it takes 30-90 minutes, but with what we had it was pretty quick. We also tried one game with 5 players (plus mod) and it took longer to deal the cards than the game itself.
The game is real fun especially if everyone gets into it. I typed up a script based on the quick reference script that comes with the game and that was a huge help. The art on the cards is great, but with the cards being so large it is hard for players to keep their identity secret at times.
Overall a great game, it is a nice change from board games.
