to give or to keep: Cthulhu playing cards

Until I run out of cool giftable stuff to tell you about or until we run out of days till Christmas, I’ll be sharing some neat-o things that your geeky pals might enjoy, or that you might want to give to yourself, if you’ve been especially good this year.

Here’s a great stocking stuffer for the worshippers of the Great Old Ones on your holiday list. Says Innsmouth House:

Weird illustrator Darrell Tutchton and weird graphic designer Andrew Leman teamed together to created a fabulous deck of 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. Poker, gin, hearts, go-fish, and all traditional card games will eat away a bit more of your sanity with this deck!

Available for purchase in the U.K. from Innsmouth House and in the U.S. from the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society’s Mythos Market.
