What's On This Page (And What's Not)

These are Cthulhu Mythos-themed board games.

More specifically ...

Cthulhu Mythos-Themed: These are lists of board games and expansions featuring the Cthulhu Mythos. These lists do not include board games that contain a mention of the Cthulhu Mythos but are not generally Mythos-themed. (Yes, Illuminati has "The Servants of Cthulhu." No, that doesn't make it a Mythos-themed game.)

Board Games: These lists are not strictly limited to games that use boards, but also include games that use any combination of boards, cards, dice, tiles, figures, rulebooks, and other miscellanea. (But not Role-Playing Games or Collectible and Living Card Games.) There aren't pages for every little promo card or Kickstarter bonus, although those items may be mentioned on the game's page.
