“This is a great game, giving you the real Cthulhu Wars experience. If I were going to mostly be playing 2 player, I would always recommend this one. And if you’re on a budget, this is a much more viable choice.”
“Number 2 of the decade for me goes to Glorantha: the Godswar. Glorantha being the oldest richest mythology our hobby has produced full of gods and epic stories. Cthulhu Wars gets redone not as another tight strategic knife fight but as a tour de force of heavy diplomacy driven asymmetrical faction engines fully under control of players (no draw a card to discover your strategy and make the best of it here). Again it flaunts game mechanics that aren’t supposed to work but not only do but excel at what strategies they empower. Crazy asymmetry. Deep strategy. Fast playing too.” Ray (wtrollkin2000)

“In the end, these types of works are for the very sybarites of the subject, but I think that it is a book that not only serves to expand our knowledge about these creatures, but is also a bottomless well of ideas to create our own adventures.
The author includes for each creature some notes that will help us to use them in the games of our favorite role-playing game.”
Invasion of the Brood is available for preorder right now on our Gamefound platform. Be among the first to receive your copy!
This is a 2-player asymmetric war game, and while it appears that the Brood is designed to win, it turns out the game is well balanced and can go either way. The most interesting part is that the humans start with a single nation who “knows” what’s going on, and you get to decide whether or not (and how) you are going to “awaken” another nation to the reality of aliens on the moon. But it comes with a cost!

Read “Pencil Strokes of Madness” on Geek Native:
“As a fan of Lovecraft’s work and more of a fan of the mythos he helped create, I’m very pleased with The Anatomical Guide to Lovecraftian Horrors.”
“Don’t buy the guide just for the illustrations; it works because of combining a thoughtful write-up of each creature and accompanying sketches. One does not work without the other, and no single element carries the guide.”
