With tongue firmly planted in cheek, Tidball’s design combines elements of the popular Fast & Furious movie franchise with the Cthulhu mythos of H.P. Lovecraft, offering an assortment of twisted puns and jokes about both properties, from “Fin Diesel” and “Benz in the Fabric of Space-Time” to “Tcho-Tcho Drift” and the “Welder Thing.”

In the game, players are street racers, competing against each other in bizarre and twisted Cthulhoid cars.  The race track is unpredictable, changing randomly during the race.  The player that can take the lead at the finish line, combining racing, card modifications, and style, wins the race.

Fast & Fhtagn includes 110 cards, 26 street mats, 29 tokens, 2 dice, and 3 reference sheets.  The game is intended for 3 - 6 players, ages 13 and up, and plays in 45 - 90 minutes.  MSRP is $29.95.
