Probably the most anticipated game I’ve backed in Kickstarter, Cthulhu Wars was going to be a massive hit or a huge flop. In this game, you, the player, take the role of one of four faction of Great Ones who are battling to conquer our planet and turn it into your realm. You’ll have to manage you cultists, summon your creatures, fight for the control of lands… And have fun. Lots of fun.
The delays and problems with the production filled me with dread for months on end and at some points I even wondered if we’d be able to see the game produced.
The thing is that, being a game designed by Sandy Petersen, it was a risk I had to take. Also, the little I know Sandy, merely some interactions in Facebook, a quick hello at Spiel 2014 and references from people who know him better than I do, did reassure me that he’s not the sort of running with the money or give up because things are hard.
Quite the opposite, after all the problems, Petersen Games have gone out of their way to make sure people get the game as soon as they were able to make it happen and also had the foresight to delay things when needed because they weren’t happy with the quality of the products they were getting prior to release.
In any event, the game is now here and I’ve managed to play it a few times. And I want to manage to play it a lot of times again. Lots, and lots of times.
