Dann Kriss Games Running Cthulhu: The Great Old One Deluxe Edition Kickstarter

Sometimes, you just want something a bit nicer. You could just get the regular, old thing, but it’s not really what you’re in the mood for. You want more. You want extra. You want a higher quality. That’s why you go in for the deluxe edition. For those that are fans of Cthulhu: The Great Old One, you’re going to be happy to hear that Dann Kriss Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for a new Deluxe Edition of the game. You can go check it out now.

From the campaign:

Cthulhu: The Great Old One is an exciting quick-play set collection game with “take that” cards and alternate in-game win AND lose conditions. More than that, Cthulhu:TGOO is a tribute to the writings of 1920’s horror author Howard Phillips Lovecraft, and to some of those who have kept his works not only alive but thriving in our modern culture. Each card is taken directly from the writings of Lovecraft, calling to mind the settings and events from his varied tales.

This new Deluxe Edition evolves gameplay and mechanics from the original edition of the game, adding in “Sign” cards which can negate the effects of Horror cards, as well as making the flow of play much more smooth, and the experiences more varied between each playthrough session. With the new poker-sized cards and drawing system, hands are easy to manage and fun to wield against your opponents.

Each game comes in a two-piece box, along with a rulebook and a 93 card deck.

This will be the first edition to enter world-wide distribution after the game is manufactured, so I will be manufacturing enough copies to fulfill pledge rewards plus additional units to send to game stores around the world! By pledging on this project, you are not only getting a great game that is easy to bring along with you and quick to both learn and play, but also helping me to share Cthulhu: The Great Old One with the world!

The campaign is up and running now. It’s set to go for another 24 days.
