“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)
Michael from Off the Shelf explains why The Gods War is his 39th favorite game of all time on BGG (luckily it’s the first game he reviews on the video so you don’t have to skip ahead). Why does he like it even better than Cthulhu Wars? What makes it different?
“The Gods War is the better game because it has taken the basic idea of an area control game that is less about the rolling of the dice and the other players, and more about the strategy and the diplomacy. It is completely asymmetric where each player has different strengths, and different weaknesses.”
