Cthulhu Mythos Chess Set Will Make You Want to Resign

by Lambert Varias

In the words of its creator, the Cthulhu Mythos Chess Set “feature indescribable forces of madness and the grotesque,” and “will strain the sanity of the stoutest soul.” I’m just trying to figure out which piece is what. They all look like hardened snot to me. But that’s probably because my mind cannot comprehend the awesomeness of these entities.

Each chess piece was made by hand without using any mold, ensuring the uniqueness of the set. For the black pieces, Cthulhu is the king of course, and Dagon is the queen. The green pieces have Yog-Sothoth as king and Ubbo-Sathla as queen. Not that I would recognize any of them if they were eating my organs. As for the other pieces, “the bishops of each side are mad alien priests, the knights grotesque mounts with vile curved spines, the rooks writhe horribly within their blasted towers. The black pawns are sinister, writhing spawn of dread Cthulhu, and the green pawns mocking little tentacular skulls.” Topnotch writing, I tell you.

You can order the Cthulhu Mythos Chess Set from Monsters Domesticated at Etsy for $420 (USD). Even if you’re not interested in buying the set, the product description is enough reason to check it out. H.P. Lovecraft would be so proud.
