Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught 2


Recommended Posts

Sandy Petersen's discussing the next Cthulhu Wars KS on BoardGameGeek, but the information's buried. Richard Long is no longer the concept artist, but Fenris is still sculpting.


OS2 covers some parts of the Cthulhu Mythos Green Eye Games was not able to obtain the license to during the first campaign. (Multiple authors contributed to the mythos so own their own rights to these contributions.)


You will also be able to pledge for the base game and expansions from the first KS, though not the KS exclusives from the first KS.


EDIT: KS link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1816687860/cthulhu-wars-onslaught-two

Anyone know if it will be possible to just get the new stuff for those who bought all the stuff from the first Kickstarter already?


The short answer is: Yup.  I went in at the De Vermiis Mysteriis level on the last KS, and was personally assured of this by Sandy Petersen.

Sign up before the KS for the glow-in-the-dark Cthulhu promo! : https://petersengames.com/cthulhu-wars-onslaught-two-pre-register/


Promo comes with $150 pledge:


We will have like a newsletter signup (but NOT for an actual newsletter*) which simply takes your email. Be sure to use the SAME email you use as a KS backer. This will close on midnight before the launch day, after which you can no longer put your email in this system.

We will use this list for only 2 purposes/times:

1) on the launch day of the KS, we'll remind everyone on this list to back us!

2) after the KS ends, when we open the pledge manager, we will compare the email list from this "pre-campaign marketing thing" with the list of actual backers from the KS who pledged for at least $150 (which is the pledge to get all the "new" items, but you can do it through add-ons as well, just get to that amount). All those who do this will get a FREE glow in the dark Cthulhu (same model as core game) added to their pledge (also no additional shipping cost). 

Basically, you are telling us you are going to be a backer beforehand, and then you are pledging for at least all the new items (or enough of the original items), and hey, free glow in the dark Cthulhu!

...And so, if you didn't before, now you know that you will be able to get all of these items for $150 - 

new HPL first player marker (25)
Tcho-tchos 8th faction expansion (50)
new Library of Celaeno map expansion (40)
GOO pack 4 (25)
Cosmic Terrors pack (25)
Ramsey Campbell Horrors 1 (25)
Ramsey Campbell Horrors 2 (25)

(x) = expected add-on price if gotten individually
*However, if you haven't yet, please do sign up for our real newsletter here wink.gif



To put it all in one place (sorry for the confusion)
If you are ALREADY signed up for our Petersen Games newsletter: 
1) you are apparently already signed up for this free glow in the dark Cthulhu (but you'll still have to back on 02, of course).
2) HOWEVER, if you signed up for our newsletter with a DIFFERENT email than your KS email, you MUST re-sign up with that email to get the glow in the dark cthulhu (this is because we will simply match our newsletter list with our 02 backer list to see who gets it). 
3) Since you're already signed up, you won't receive an email confirmation again. 
If you have NOT already signed up for our Petersen Games newsletter:
1) By signing up for the free glow in the dark Cthulhu, you are also signing up for our regular newsletter.
I apologize for this confusion. Our guy put all this up and didn't explain to us exactly how it will all work. Hope this answers all questions about this. 
Also, to actually get the figure, you will have to back at a minimum level, which should be $150.

This is starting to make me froth at the mouth. 


I never knew how much I needed a glow-in-the-dark Cthulhu.  Quite a bit, apparently.


I do hope they don't repeat the multi-tiered early bird business and the father's day special.  I found the steep price differences discouraging and I would prefer to know everyone is paying the same amount.  And the way kickstarter has changed now seems to make it harder to pledge when large amounts of other people are also pledging at the same time.

This is the one Kickstarter that concerns me as far as resisting KS for the time being. I was planning to back this one heavily. Now I will instead push a friend to back it heavily and reap the benefits by making him bring the game over to my house to play :)
