Kickstarter review: Cthulhu Wars Onslaught 3

“that is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die”
H.P. Lovecraft

If you’re a bit active in the world of tabletop games, you prabably heard about the Kickstarter succes for one of the most massive games out there: Cthulhu Wars by Sandy Petersen.

In the game every player fields one of the many factions inspired by the stories written by H.P. Lovecraft. Players try to capture the world and complete their own unique objectives before anyone else does. But, for me, the biggest attraction to this game are the miniatures. They simply look stunning! In the current Kickstarter more factions and miniatures are added to the game to increase the already high re-playability (another big plus in my book!) of the game.

Cthulhu Wars Yothan
I really dig this sculpt of the Yothan, one of the monsters from the new Ancients faction.

 The Kickstarter is brilliantly designed with lots of information, reviews, video’s of gameplay and lots of pictures of all the new miniatures. It is in fact so well designed, there just isn’t any reason for me to tell you more about it and I urge you to just go a see the page yourself.

The pledge levels are well put together, with pledges for veterans who want all of the new stuff, players who missed out of the last KS and want those expansion and a pledge for the basis game only (I remember from my days as a retailer, that Cthulhu Wars sells out fast!). Ofcourse there are pledges available for people who want it all and even more :p

This is something I’d like to see in more Kickstarters!

I realise the pledge prices might be a bit daunting, but the game really is worth it. Every factions has its own unique objectives, playstyle, you can get different spellbooks for every game and another big plus is the play time, with 90 minutes, this is one of the fastest playing world domination games I know of!

Check out the Kickstarter for Cthulhu Wars Onslaught here and let me know what you think of this game 😉

Stay sane…
