Lord Cthulhu is doing very well in the world of board games. Looking at the Lovecraft related games released last year, a lot of them were actually really good games and we own 3 out of 6. Arkham Horror: the card game, Mythos Tales and Tides of Madness. We still have to play and receive the last one though. While doing a little research for this comic I was rather surprised to see that there is a Cthulhu Monopoly. Did anybody play that? Not something I would think of to add to a game collection… unless I was a collector of Cthulhu games of course. 😀
In totaly unrelated Cthulhu news, we’ve finished the Imperial Assault: The Bespin Gambit campaign! Unlike the main campaign, the rebels won this time. And just like in the main campaign it was quite a strain for the imperial player to put up a fight against four rebel players. It’s just a much harder game for the imperial player and that is a problem of the game. We enjoyed playing through two campaigns, but it’s just very stressful for one player of the group and it’s a nice little puzzle for the rest. So as a group we’re happy to play some other games now.
