Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

You're one of the Great Old Ones – beings of ancient and eldritch power. Cosmic forces have held you at bay for untold aeons, but at last the stars are right and your maniacal cult has called you to this benighted place. Once you regain your full powers, you will unleash your Doom upon the world!

There's only one problem: You're not alone. The other Great Old Ones are here as well, and your rivals are determined to steal your cultists and snatch victory from your flabby claws! It's a race to the ultimate finish as you crush houses, smash holes in reality, and fight to call down The Doom That Came To Atlantic City!

You and your fellow players are Great Old Ones competing to be the first to destroy the world. There are two ways to achieve this:

  • Any Great Old One can win by obtaining six gates, at which point the game instantly ends. You have only five gate markers because if you open a sixth gate, you win!
  • At the start of the game, each Great Old One receives a Doom card providing a shortcut to victory. If you land on one of your gates and meet the preconditions, you may attempt the action listed on your Doom. If you succeed, you win!

Update: June 2015
Renegade Games now has this title.

UPDATE JULY 31, 2013
Cryptozoic Entertainment has taken over as publisher, without any of the Kickstarter monies, and will send free copies of the game to all those who Kickstarted the game.
(Reference: http://www.cryptozoic.com/articles/cryptozoic-saves-doom-came-atlantic-city-board-game )

UPDATE July 23, 2013
This is a game that initially developed an intense and passionate following on Kickstarter. It was one of the highly touted game success stories at the time of its campaign. However, a year after the delivery date passed, the team at Forking Path had been uncommunicative and unresponsive. This has led many of the KS supporters to doubt that the game and rewards would ever be delivered. (Reference: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/forkingpath/the-doom-that-came-to-atlantic-city/comments )

Thirteen and a half months after the Kickstarter ended, Forking Path confirmed that the Kickstarter had been cancelled, the games would not be delivered, and backers money would not be able to be returned in a timely manner.
