From the back of the box:
The world is doomed, and you can help! Help doom it, that is.
When the stars are right, the Great Old Ones will return. If the stars aren't right, move them!
In The Stars Are Right, you take the role of a cultist, summoning Lovecraftian horrors from beyond time and space. Invoke minor creatures to move the tiles that make up the sky, creating patterns to summon more and more powerful monsters. Eventually, you'll build a horde of Servitors who can make a chain of flips, pushes, and swaps, rearranging the entire sky. Make the stars right, summon a Great Old One, and win!
