  1. The Necronomnomnom - A Cookbook of Eldritch Horror

    Oh man, I had a good laugh at some of those recipe names! Thanks for sharing, and definitely backed.
  2. Evil High Priest

    I'm in for this. The gameplay looks interesting, and as Talae mentioned it ties in thematically with Cthulhu Wars (which so far everyone I've played with seems to love). I didn't get the point of the Azathoth cultists, since that's not a playable faction. Maybe they're NPCs or something?
  3. Divinity: Original Sin 2

    I finally received my physically rewards (all the way from Serbia, apparently), so I think that completes fulfillment for me.
  4. Spirit Island by GreaterThanGames

    I got a few more games in (2-player and 1-player), and we're having a much better success rate. We even moved on to include Moderate difficulty Spirits and draw for Minor/Major Powers (rather than using the preset lists for Low difficulty Spirits). For anyone trying out the game, I would stress the importance of paying attention to upcoming Invader actions and how you (the players) can collectively counter it. It's easy to get side-tracked trying to take down Invaders across the island, but it's critical to focus on the ones that are actually going to act in the upcoming phase as "high priority" targets. Also, don't forget that destroying a Town generates 1 Fear, and destroying a City generates 2 Fear. We missed that rule our first run through, and it makes a big difference (especially with damage-heavy Spirits like Lightning's Swift Strike, which can blow through Towns very quickly)! I highly recommend everyone give this game a few tries (I honestly think it takes a couple of goes until everything starts to click into place).
  5. Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught Three

    To be fair, my last gaming group had the same experience with the Cthulhu Wars base game. It usually only took losing one game to a more aggressive player to realize that they, too, needed to be more aggressive in the next game. I think that's just part of learning the game, especially for players who tend to "turtle". I decided to go in on this, as I like some of the new stuff and as with some others here, I'm heavily invested in Cthulhu Wars. The rule revisions don't bother me, since I'd rather the devs "fix" the game as genuine problems are identified (as opposed to "flavor of the month" type issues). Any game that is currently supported will have a FAQ or other corrections, so I don't think that's any different with the Omega Rulebook revisions. If you have an existing copy (as do I), then it's still a valid compendium of the current rules.
  6. Spirit Island by GreaterThanGames

    I received my game (which is very nice quality), so I'm good to go as far as fulfillment. I played a two player game earlier today, and I agree with etherial that it's a lot to take in. We got absolutely stomped, so I suspect we were somehow making the Invaders spread more than they should. There's definitely some fun elements here and I look forward to giving it another try (maybe with a different spirit).
  7. Spirit Island by GreaterThanGames

    I'm still waiting on mine to arrive. I got the shipping notification, which says I should get it tomorrow.
  8. Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught 2

    I received by Onslaught 2 package this week as well, and everything looked great. Now I just need to find enough players that I'm willing to have visit my place to play...
  9. Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught 2

    Though it does get awkward when you get a package notification and you aren't sure what to be excited to get home and open...
  10. Relic Knights 2nd Edition

    Harker is on my must-have list. That relic...
  11. Relic Knights 2nd Edition

    I ran some numbers last night and it's about a 60% discount on the resin figures (I didn't check the v1.0 plastics). If you're looking to grab some random models (whether or not you're interested in the game), this seems like an excellent time to do so.
  12. Relic Knights 2nd Edition

    They're listed as 30mm scale, though a big caveat on the 1st Edition plastic figures as the scale on those seemed to vary significantly on some of the sculpts. I'm excited that they're resculpting so much of the line, though I'm not terribly experienced with resin figures. Edit: I just noticed that the "pledge manager" lists the base sizes, which should give you some idea of the size of each listed figure.
  13. Relic Knights 2nd Edition

    The Sundown Enforcers have a somewhat Warzone feel to them with the chunky armor style, which I like. The cowgirl seems a bit out of place to me, though; are Westerns a common anime/manga theme?
  14. Relic Knights 2nd Edition

    I'm definitely interested in this, especially to see what additional figures may be unlocked. Soda Pop has discontinued a lot of the previous figures and the resculpts should get everything in the same scale!
  15. Arcadia Quest: Inferno

    I received my core set as well, which consists of four boxes. I didn't realize we were getting so much stuff with the core pledge! Does anyone know if there is a list of references for the Arcadia Quest heroes? A lot of them are nods to pop culture, but the names are similar to Cockney rhyming slang in that they're a step removed so it's hard to figure out what the "source" might be unless you immediately recognize it.
