Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught Three

Recommended Posts

I got an answer: you can back for a dollar now and upgrade to a larger pledge in the pledge manager.

 

I do want the new map, but that might be all I want.  And there is no a la carte. 

 

If they offer the Shining Trapezohedron again though, and the 6-8 map pack, those are things I wanted and couldn't pick up last time.

 

EDIT: just checked in and read last night's update: Shining Trapezohedron is being offered at same price as last time.

Where is everyone at on this one?

 

I'm giving more and more thought toward pulling the plug on my pledge as this KS is winding down.  I like the core game and all, but the KS content this time around is pretty lackluster IMHO.

Is it the same version that came out during Onslaught Two, or are there changes to it?

I believe they are the same except gaining some stuff for The Ancients (that I believe are also coming in the stretch goals since the Trapezohedron pack will go to retail).

 

Overall, The Ancients, Dire Cthulhu, Dire Azathoth, and Shaggai map are what I am here for. The rest is just gravy.

I think the Dire Azathoth is a big improvement on the previous sculpt.

 

Nodens is amazing!

I don't see anything wrong with the face. My only real quibble with the sculpt is the reptilian tentacles seem to have an inelegant texture on them. Well that and having an Azathoth with roughly lateral symmetry has always rubbed me the wrong way, but the old one was like that too. He is the Nuclear (as in central) Chaos. He should have radial rather than lateral symmetry to represent that.

This ends tonight at 11 pm EDT.  Some good stretch goals have been added. 

 

Still not the least bit excited about the "post-apocalyptic investigators" (from Planet Apocalypse?) and wish there was a better stretch goal for the million dollar mark.  Also lukewarm about the "secret" stretch goal beyond one million.

 

Petersen Games website has a lot of pre-order for product (like the Glow in the dark GOOs) and the shining trap, that one may have mistakenly though would be KS exclusive.

I am going to put this as a link because once it has been seen, apparently it cannot be unseen.  You have been warned:

Are you not a fan of clowns?

 

No.  I really hate that new sculpt.

 

Stuck out the KS despite that fact though.

      I backed his last project (dice towers), and found them well worth what ended up being a long wait to get them. It seemed only right to share, 'cause he makes REALLY PRETTY THINGS. Go look.

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
       
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
       
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.
