H.P. Lovecraft's KINGSPORT FESTIVAL: The Rituals of Mysteries is the long-awaited official port of the board game by Andrea Chiarvesio and Gianluca Santopietro inspired by the short story "The Festival", one of the milestones of the famous Cthulhu Mythos that made famous the Solitary of Providence, became popular as the Master of Weird.
In the unimaginable darkness of Kingsport, silent wanderers are called to a profane celebration. Their goal: to invoke unthinkable horrors! A dread terror that is not of this world or any other — but rather from the spaces between the stars — demands your submission.
EXTEND YOUR CULT: gather resources, learn spells, conquers the city, defeat your opponents! Accepts the challenge in games for three, four or five players.
INVOKE THE MOST POWERFUL ELDER GODS: awaken the Ancient Ones, summon blasphemous creatures and gain the most valuable "gifts". Discover all the most famous protagonists of the monstrous Lovecraft’s pantheon.
PRESERVE YOUR SANITY: the power dulls the reason, unspeakable visions undermine the perception of reality: protect your mind from the dark recesses. Test your strategic and management skills.
CAST THE MOST POWERFUL SPELLS: from the pages of old forgotten tomes, including the indescribable Necronomicon, you can learn disturbing arcane knowledge to enhance your destruction. Can you handle so much power?
EXPAND YOUR OBSCURE INFLUENCE: insinuate yourself in the main buildings of the dream town by expanding your evil influence. This time, you are the bad guys. Why settle for the lesser evil?
FIGHT THE MOST FAMOUS INVESTIGATORS: from the pages of the American author's fiction, the most famous characters that have already challenged the cosmic horrors return! Now they will try to stop you: are you ready to defeat them?

Minor bug Fix
Ratings and Reviews
Fun, if a bug doesn't kill your game entirely
I use an iPad Air ios 8.1.3.
The game itself is fun, if easy. The counterintuitive buttons took a game to get through, and if you don't know when to trigger a location ability, you might waste potential resources... That's an operator error in part, but also an interface issue.
Then the bugs.
Whenever you look at certain spells that use a variable number of resources or magic points, instead of something like an X to denote the mystery number, you get $var. It breaks immersion. Finally, the game occasionally craps out entirely on certain pop up options, and with no hide feature on most of these, it immediately kills the game. If you wind up with a blank menu during excess spell deletion, you're done.
Great game, terrible interface
I played the tabletop version of this game a few weeks ago, and really enjoyed it. When I saw this was available in the App Store, I bought it as soon as I could.
Unfortunately, the interface hampers the game badly, especially on my iPad Mini. The dice are far to small to select easily, and there are way too many taps to make in order to progress through the game, and not enough indication of what options you have.
Kind of a mess
And not newbie friendly. This game is not that difficult, but this implementation hides everything behind screens. Read the manual for the board game first; it's better.
Probably fine if you already know the board game, but the tutorial is kludgey and tough to run through. There is no way to examine the elder gods before you choose them in game. No ingame reference guide so you need to memorize all symbols before the first game to really understand game play.
