    DUSK : Arena of Shadows

    I am exploring the project to find some justification for the $120 pricetag for this game (or $160 if you wish to participate in promised stretch goals) but I am flummoxed.

    Westfalia - The Dark Eye RPG Miniatures

    I bought them all. Am I correct in observing that the two "star" minis (viking and sorceress) are not part of the core pledge and are only available as 15 dollar add-ons? If so, disappointing.

    "Cthulhu Wars" Official Audio by Darkraven Games

    To be honest I don't find the audio samples (if I listening to the right ones) all that exciting, scary, or dramatic. More like atmospheric background effects from a computer. Am I listening to the wrong things? I am happy to be convinced. Cthulhu Wars is an intense, dramatic, fast-paced and rough game. If I wanted music in the background then I would use pieces of epic orchestral music or soundtracks to high-stakes dramatic films. I also find 24 USD for an hour-long digital download somewhat expensive. I would pay that for HQ physical media.

    Ducks Lost in the Dungeons of Doom IV: Quack Keep

    My ducks arrived yesterday. Their wings are very tired from five weeks of flapping. NZ to Canada is a long haul. These are really, absolutely fabulous. They are unquestionably the ducks I have been waiting for my entire life. Mr Star Hat tells me that me and two other Canucks were the last ones waiting so I imagine this thread is done. Stick a fork in it.

    Dwarven Forge KS6 Caverns Deep

    I was a late backer for KS IV -- just sent them an message request and they gave me access to the pledge manager. However I can't guarantee they will do that again. But why wouldn't they? They keep throwing things out at the end of the campaign. How could they expect anyone to sort out the bombardment of info?

    Dwarven Forge KS6 Caverns Deep

    Very nice looking forest. I imagine this will be expensive enough that I will continue to draw on Woodland Scenics for all my leafy green needs.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    Yes the add-ons so far do look good. I hope there will be at least one more though. So many wonderful gods and monsters have not received any love so far. It seems telling that the special rules for playing with that Big Cthulhu haven't been released. Really curious how they have botched the nomenclature for Wilbur Whateley ... and now the Dunwich Horror (by calling it Yog Sothoth rather than Spawn of Yog-Sothoth). The whole project feels very clumsily executed. (I have no words to describe buff-shouldered six-packed Albert Einstein holding a revolver. Oh wait. I guess I did have those words.)

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    This is picking up some steam now. A nice Yog-Sothoth piece is the next stretch goal. Ends Tuesday (tomorrow) for those still interested.

    Dwarven Forge KS6 Caverns Deep

    KS5 priced me out. Made me glad I got my KS 1 through 4 pieces when I did. Beautiful stuff but this is way too boutiquey and expensive for me. I just need generic tiles, not specialty pieces.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    Yeah, things have really picked up since yesterday and they've shortened the gaps between stretch goals tremendously. So feels like playing catch up in a positive way, what with all the cool monsters that have just shown up. And those two Yithians! They put a big smile on my face. No wonder they are making them KS exclusives.

    Overturn Rising Sands

    I would be terrified of letting them have even a dollar. If they actually tried to fake a complaint to Kicktraq to get the page taken down .... There are still 1200 people backing this.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    I want to like this game a lot. I will no doubt stay in because its solo play doesn't require you use more than two investigators (which is preferably to Zombicide's solo play). I don't know anything about math, but I am going to go out on a limb and wonder if Big Cthulhu is actually what is holding this project back right now. If it is really that expensive to produce then it is not like their typical add-ons, which boost the money totals but don't cost them that much. So those add-ons typically help unlock stretch goals. Maybe this thing isn't going to be as profitable for them, so they are reticent to count it towards stretch goals. Currently (according to my mathing) the pledges for Big Cthulhu account for $724950. If you subtract that from the total you get $1,061,483. So maybe that's the de facto total for CMON right now. And that accounts for the broader gaps between stretch goals in this project Please feel free to disagree as I don't know numbers or crowdfunding.

    If this doesn't get cancelled by Kickstarter it will be proof a lot of people back these games and then never look at the project page again. Also this, which I just saw from someone in the comments section: "Just adding to the plagiarism - I'm sorry, I meant UNCANNY SIMILARITIES - https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgamepublisher/37906/foxtales-studios "Foxtales Studios LTD is a toys and hobby games company based in Ontario, Canada.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    Yeah I wasn't suggesting new rules, just alternates sculpts for say, the ten core survivors investigators. "The Kid" seems to be a ripoff homage clone imitation of sort of similar to Varvara from Hellboy comics. Elsewhere it has been suggested that this game's rules/gameplay also seem similar to Mantic's recent Hellboy project. These rules have also been described elsewhere as a mash-up of Zombicide and Elder Sign, which I also thought when I read the rules. Just an opinion. Really hard to figure out how many new ideas there really are here. Sigh.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    This morning's update: dice and an art book. No new stretch goal. It's like they're actually trying to perfect "meh."
