Welcome back, Awful Squad friends! This week we’re dealing with one of the Gods of the Old World. Yes, it seems Cthulhu is causing some trouble for us. Inspired by a terrific board game called Mountains of Madness, some of the Awful Squad have been struck with some pretty nasty curses. Will they survive? Probably not!

Today’s Awful Squad attendees include:

  • Griffin McElroy
  • Travis McElroy
  • Justin McElroy
  • Russ Frushtick
  • Simone de Rochefort
  • Polygon Newbie Jenna Stoeber
  • Special Guest Abby Russell of Giant Bomb
