The Old Ones Have Risen. Monsters Walk the Earth.

Humanity is finished, but the struggle continues . . .Which Great Old One will rule the ruins of Earth? Now, you take charge!

Cthulhu Wars is a fast-moving strategy game about the end of the world. You take the part of various monstrous aliens seeking to dominate the world. You can play as Great Cthulhu, or you can take charge of the slithering menace of the Crawling Chaos, command the bestial hordes of the Black Goat, or direct the insane minions of the Yellow Sign.

The game features a huge map of a devastated Earth to fight over, and 72 high-quality figures, all drawn from the dread Cthulhu Mythos, including Cthulhu himself, Cultists, Shoggoths, and many other horrors. These figures are sculpted in 28mm scale to be compatible with many other tabletop games.

Unlock spells and summon monsters unique to your own Faction, each of which are strikingly different in their tactics and techniques. A strategy that works for the Black Goat will be ineffective for the Crawling Chaos. Each Faction has multiple unique strategies for winning, so Cthulhu Wars has incredible depth and replay value. This game supports 2-4 players, with an additional map layout that can support even more Factions (purchased separately) in a 5 player game.

Cthulhu Wars is a combination of strategic gaming and Lovecraftian horror, with the bonus of the high-quality monster figures to make your game even more fun. Sandy Petersen, its creator, is well-known as one of the top game designers in the industry, and this is his best work so far!

This is the Kickstarter First Edition.
