I only pledged $1 and got the pledge manager email.  Still not sure I'm going to increase it...  have some time to ponder at least, but I think I made my sanity check on this one.  

Same here.

My hesitation is primarily due to Deep Madness arriving soon. 

 

It has been full of shipping delays, though, so will be here in the next couple weeks instead of in hand during this PM like I had planned.

I failed the final Will Save. Luckily for my wallet, I didn't get the massive Cthulhu.

I made my will save easily.  But I hope you all have a blast.  I'll wait for Deep Madness in a couple weeks and be happy with that.  :-)

Groovy.

I've been watching this since I realized that Studio McVey were going to be making Cthulhu monsters (that just sounds like such a good idea).

But I able to sell it to my wife based on the two foot tall Cthulhu (yes, without the megathulhu, she was much more hesitant to back this one).

Received this last week and played the first scenario a couple of times this weekend.  Overall a very pleasant surprise:

 

A) The miniatures are amazing.  Better than I expected.  In fact the whole visual presentation is really eye-catching and impressive.

 

B) The game is both really easy to learn and very fun to play (so far).  I didn't know what to expect and like it a lot.   The sanity loss theme is highly engaging.  I am glad I went all-in (except for Big Boy Cthulhu, which I am happy I skipped).

I could *not* find this topic to reply to!

 

I got mine this last weekend, and really like the look of the whole thing.  I haven't had a chance to play it yet, but I hope to.

Mine came today.  I think it's the largest KS box I've ever received.   Can't wait to play it!

Mine showed up but I think I might sell it. I am just overloaded with games right now. I don't see this hitting the table for quite sometime. 

 

Hopefully I can get my money back.

I got my copy in yesterday. The core box, KS box, and season 2. Pretty happy I did, simple and clear rules, and I had fun with a quick run of the 1st scenario. It ended badly, which is fine for a Lovecraftian thang. Actually everything was going a little too slick, thanks to a brawler and (I forget the name, the rifle guy who can attack one space away)...then the Star Spawn cleaned our clocks with no way to mitigate. I got a laugh out of it as a fitting first game. The Mythos deck, it's a son-of-a-gun.

 

Overall I think I still prefer Massive Darkness for a light game, the attack/defense dice thing is cool. And I feel that it's the best CMoN KS loot, because having all the extra monster types really makes MD a far better game. For Cthulhu, they kind of (by necessity) stuck to the old 'add more player options', which is cool and adds some replayability...but I prefer more varied monster types, in general.

I think I prefer it a bit over Zombicide, the insanity stuff plays well and the stress mechanic adds a nice bit of spice.

Thanks. What did you think of the miniatures? I'm too stuck on the classic look for Cthulhu. :;,;:

      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.
