Tides of Madness is the sequel to Tides of Time and it features a Lovecraftian theme. It is a card drafting and set collection game for two players, introducing more Madness…

You take on the roles of investigators trying to discover ancient knowledge by exploring hidden locations, encountering horrific creatures, contacting mysterious cults and learning unspeakable words. But this knowledge might prove to be too great for your weak minds and therefore some of you may be lost in madness forever…

The game consists of three rounds, in which players draft cards to learn about the Ancient Ones. Their goal is to get the highest score, however at the same time, they must keep an eye on their Madness level. Some cards are very powerful, but when drafting them, they also harm your sanity and you get high levels of Madness. If so, you go insane and you lose the game immediately!

Tides of Madness is a standalone game and it comes with eighteen cards, twenty Madness tokens, a score pad, a pencil and a rulebook.

I got to know the world of board games along with NinjaBoy several years ago. So we both ended up getting hooked on playing, until we finally decided to create this website, so that boardgamers from all over the world will gather around. I am a translator and a copywriter. Making this site, as well as working on it every single day, has been a great experience and we are happy to know that it has brought together people who share the same love for board games. So, choose your character, shuffle your deck and roll your dice, for there are some board game stories here to explore!
