Petersen Games’ Cthulhu Wars is one of the most popular Cthulhu-based games out there. Players take on the role of some being, looking to conquer the Earth for their own, nefarious purposes. Well, the game is looking to expand out with a new faction, the Ancients, as well as a new map to fight over, plus extras for all the existing factions. As such, there’s a new Kickstarter campaign up to fund it. You can also pick up previous Cthulhu Wars items as part of the project.
From the campaign:
Cthulhu Wars’ original Kickstarter campaigns launched in 2013 and 2015 to stellar success. If you’re already a fan, now is the time to complete your collection!
If you have been waiting for the opportunity to get in on Cthulhu Wars, this is your best opportunity!
Cthulhu Wars is a competitive strategy game in which 2 to 8 players face-off to determine the fate of the planet. You’ll recruit cultists and summon monsters, cast spells, open interdimensional gates, and awaken your colossal unearthly Great Old One!
Every game is different – as you play, you unlock new spellbooks, giving new amazing powers unique to each faction. Play is asymmetric – every faction has a unique set of rules and victory conditions.
The core game offers an asymmetric, two to four player strategy experience (up to eight players with expansions). Each player controls a faction of cosmic evil competing with its rivals for the remains of the defeated, dying Earth. Players push and battle each other to control areas, build gates, gain power, achieve personal goals, and unlock special abilities in the form of spellbooks to render their own faction supreme. The miniatures are conspicuously monstrous, appealing and evocative.
The Kickstarter campaign is already more than 4x funded with still 27 days left to go.
