Cthulhu Wars in Review

CERTAINLY that insert could have been ditched in favor of some kind of component upgrades. I don't know how much it cost to do that, but I can't imagine that it couldn't have been swapped out for punchboard administrative boards, custom dice or something.
I just looked up the old KS Campaign, and they had offered custom dice
They just cost 12 bucks.

We just take the empty insert out, turn it upside down, put all the models into the thing, with as many bases facing up as possible. Then pick it up, and slide the bottom of the box over it, flip the whole thing right-side up, then put the GOOs away and add the rest of the components. Works pretty well for us.

I also somehow was able to back Arcadia Quest Inferno at early bird. Not sure if I'll keep it but I feel like this game would really work for my family and group. Now I just have to hope that Simurgh will suck and then I'll be all done buying games for the next 3 years. How do I get on this 'review copy' playlist you guys seem to be subscribed to? I could muster up a barely coherent review every couple of weeks in exchange.
Now I just need to hop on Mint, delete all evidence from my wife, and then tell her my BGG secret santa was ultra generous this year.
I haven't played with any expansion stuff yet and I'm doing the $1 pledge and see how I feel when the Pledge Manager is about to close.
Personally, there's a strong possibility I go 2 factions, 1 map and the thicker faction boards. That should be around stretch goal territory.
I also may just do $11 and get the thicker boards and wait and see what hits retail. I kind of want Azathoth too.
It's tough because nothing is guaranteed to hit retail (besides the base game), so it's hard to know if CSI or MM will order all of the expansions or just a selection to test the waters. You risk not being able to get something versus something being available for 15-20% less.
$100 - 2 Factions out of Opener, Sleeper, Tcho-Tchos
$40 - 1 Map (Dreamlands or Yuggoth)
$15 - High Priests
$10 - Thick punchboards.
You will get all the stretch goals, so you will have some glow Great Old ones with their cards to use as neutral units, plus any old one you are not using in a game as a neutral unit.
Ok I'll get one of those maps. Will get punchboards. How necessary are the high priests?
