Wonderful game! Beautiful artwork, not too complicated to learn, and has the Lovecraft atmosphere in spades. And best of all, I can play it solo if I want. Highly recommended.
--Oct2011-- Not a lot of deadtime; pretty good theme integration for a dressed up Yahtzee. I found it entertaining, but not something that I'd wish to play often: for me, it's an occasional amusement at best.
If you enjoy the Lovecraftian theme, you'll find this one fun - but I'm not sure about balance. One time we won and it was a little close (5-player). The second play we easily won - without even breaking a sweat (4-player). The folks I played with really enjoyed it - and I think it fits well as a game for late at night with several moments of shouting at the outcome of a close roll. That's all great. But for a co-op - if it's too easy to beat, that could be a problem for long term play.
