From the back cover:
"I choose YOU, Pikathulhu!"
You're 10 years old. You're our last hope. Armed with a shining Dodecahedron and the elder incantations to make it work, you capture the monsters and train them to use their power… But not for evil. For sport.
That is not dead which can eternal lie,
and with strange aeons even death may die!
To bring down our masters on an icy night,
And to claim the power when the stars are right…
Stand fast to resist our rage…
Or flee to the safety of a new dark age!
Ftaghn! That's Right!
Amid the sagging gables of Old New England, evil lurks…and squirms, and scuttles, and purrs. Grownups are fleeing in terror, hiding behind the Elder Sign.
You've thrilled to the popular TV show. Now, you can play the game! Is your Shoplifting score good enough to sneak a page from your opponent's Pokénomicon? Is your trained Jigglypolyp powerful enough to defeat a devolved Fungal Cluster? This is the world of POKETHULHU, and now it's yours to save—or conquer!
Fast furious and more fun than a screaming yellow electric rat in a blender, the stars are SO right for this hilarious game of cute, cuddly cultists and seizure-inducing evil!
