Hello, fellow pseudopods! We’re super excited to announce that as of a few minutes ago, the Kickstarter for the first expansion of Feed the Shoggoth!, Morsels of Madness, is now live! New Minions, new Spells and Artifacts, new Cult Factions, and some cheat sheets for the rules! Oh, and did we mention that one of the new Spells summons a second Shoggoth to the fray?

Morsels of Madness Kickstarter coming January 2019

Hey, fellow pseudopods,

We’ve been gathering feedback on the Kickstarter page, and polishing it up in order to get it properly ready for launch. With the holidays imminent, we’ve decided that it would be best to slightly delay the Kickstarter until the first of the year. This will give us time to make some final tweaks, and let everyone’s wallets recover a bit from the holiday shopping season. Once we go live, we’ll announce it here! Thanks for your patience.

Unnamable things are starting to stir from their undead slumber…

Last year, we at Squamous Studios began to throw around design ideas for an expansion to Feed the Shoggoth, with the hopes of having the cards done in some fashion before 2017 was up. Alas, due to other deadlines and commitments, we weren’t able to hit that target date. But I’m happy to report that earlier this year, we got the development of the first expansion underway! As of right now, the rules are pretty much done (sans a bit of tweaking), and most of the artwork has been sketched out by yours truly. I’m now in the process of doing the final artwork, and running some more play test demos to get some final feedback before we lock the designs down.

And speaking of demos, we have two big events coming up! First, on April the 28th, we’ll be participating in International Tabletop Day at Games of Berkeley. Come join us from 11-5, where you can try out the first expansion yourself.

Second, we’ll be attending KublaCon in late May, as part of Squamous Studios’ booth, running games all weekend in the Dealer’s Room! We will have prizes to give away, as well as a special, exclusive Minion card created just for the event. In addition to the expansion, we’ll also be hosting play test demos of a brand new game that’s in development, called Arkham Relic Hunt. It’s really good. You should check it out.

So, you may ask- what will this first expansion contain? Funny you should ask! One of the biggest additions are the new Minion cards. These Minions, instead of just giving you a point, will also have a special effect tied to them. The Re-Aminated Minion, for example, will go back to your hand instead of the Graveyard, so that it can be fed to the Shoggoth a second time. There will be three new Factions, more Artifacts, and more Spells…including one spell that will summon a second Shoggoth onto the table. As you might imagine, that changes up the gameplay quite a bit…

As a preview, you can see three examples of some of the new cards below. Obviously, the artwork isn’t finished yet…

That’s all for the moment! We’ll have another update soon, along with some completed artwork to display. Be seeing you!

Win a copy of FtS during Extra Life!

Hello, fellow pseudopods,

Squamous Studios is proud to be participating in this year’s Extra Life, partnering up with the New England Gamers group to help raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Extra Life is a benefit wherein gamers run gaming events for 24 hours straight, and will kick off 3pm EST. You’ll have the chance to win one of several copies of Feed the Shoggoth during the Call of Cthulhu RPG event during the live stream. Head on over to this Friday, November 17th, and get in on the action! You can pitch in donations to have terrible things happen to the investigators during the CoC session; who knows, perhaps one of them will get eaten by a shoggoth…

New Interview up, and a show of support to

Hello, fellow pseudopods,

First up, we wanted to tell you about an interview we did with Dark Tower Games recently, in which we discussed a number of projects that we at Squamous Studios have been involved in. Much of it focuses on the book design work that we do, but Feed the Shoggoth! talked about as well. You can check it out by heading here.

Second, and more importantly, there’s a bit of sad news to mention. Some of you may be familiar with the website (otherwise known as YSDC). It has been one of the premier websites to support the HP Lovecraft and Cthulhu game community, whether it be Call of Cthulhu, Trail of Cthulhu, the various board and card games, or whathaveyou. The fellow that runs the site, Paul McClean, is an incredibly sweet and nice person.

There was a project started a few years ago to help raise money to support YSDC, in the form of a book called the Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion. A Kickstarter was formed, the project was successful, and a few years later, the book was released.

Unfortunately, due to circumstances i’m not entirely familiar with, there was an accounting error somewhere along the way, and the publisher ended up being short about £10,000. Paul, not wanting to see anyone lose money from this, gave that publisher that 10k back, out of his own pocket. That’s…a shit ton of money. And in order for Paul to try to mitigate that loss, he’s decided to sell his entire collection of CoC material. Of which he’s been accumulating since 1982.

Well, in an effort to give back a little support to Paul and YSDC, i, along with some other publishers, are having a fundraiser. From now until midnight, July 1st, i will be offering copies of Feed the Shoggoth! at a discount. Use this coupon code at checkout: YOGGIE17 , and you’ll get $5 off the core game. In addition, for every purchase during the fundraiser, $5 will be donated to YSDC to help keep it running.

Thanks for reading this. Our gaming community, while growing every year, is still pretty small, and sites like are integral to keeping it alive and thriving.

We’re very happy to announce that the brand new Shoggoth minis are in house, and ready for purchase!

We have them available in four colors: Putrid Purple, Baleful Black, Blasphemous Bronze, and Grotesque Green. You can check out a picture of them below:

You can get one for $10 plus shipping, but we’re also offering a special; a 4-pack of Shoggoth minis for just $30 (plus shipping, natch)! Head over to the store and check ’em out!

New Shoggoth mini in production!

Hello, fellow pseudopods,

We’ve gotten a lot of feedback about the game over the intervening months, and one thing that keeps on being brought up is that people are bummed that they missed out on getting the shoggoth miniature from the Kickstarter. Well, we have some good news! We’re working again with Jason McKittrick of Cryptocurium, who is now actively working on a new mini! We’re calling it the “shoggoth mini mini”, as this little fellow will be smaller than the original; about the diameter of the metal turn counter. It’ll be hand painted, and only run you a measly $10 (plus shipping).

When it’s available for purchase here, we’ll let you know. But for now, we’ll tease you with this photo of the prototype:

Also, there are rumblings in the Studio about work being done on the first Feed the Shoggoth! expansion, with a Kickstarter to follow. We’ll let you know more as things develop…

Feed the Shoggoth! is on sale!

Greetings, fellow pseudopods,

In light of the holiday season, what with Yithmass quickly approaching and all, we thought it would be a great idea to launch a sale of Feed the Shoggoth!. Yes, for the entire month of December, you’ll get $5 off your copy. In fact, each copy you purchase will get the discount. Normally $20, FtS! will run you just $15 with this coupon code:


When you proceed to the checkout page, you’ll see a field to enter in the coupon code. Just drop it in there, and you’ll be good to go! FtS! will make a great stocking stuffer…but since Shoggoths leave a bit of a trail of slime, you may want to wash that stocking after. Or just set it on fire.
