Gaming Spotlight: Cthulhu Wars

Cthulhu Wars is a mythos game based losely on the tales of H.P. Lovecraft. You know, those great short stories that he wrote. Ok, if you don’t know them, think gribbly horrifying monsters, mind bending creatures and general horror usually written pretty dryly. I will recommend though, that if you are new to the mythos that stories like Dunwhich Horror are a great place to start. Needless to say, I am a fan.

So, like a lot of folks that watched the kickstarter for this game, I was a little unsure of dropping the kind of money they wanted to buy the core game. I figured it was probably better just to hang out, wait for it to hit stores and see what people think. Not to mention, then at least some of the money goes to my FLGS which needs it as much as this company making this game needs it. So when it hit the shelves at Pegasus Games, after a few minutes of indicision and staring at the box it was mine. Ok, so I did read a few reviews and watch a couple of how to play videos before I bought it.
