We have a special episode releasing today in order to tell you about an unannounced Petersen Games. Many of you are probably aware of their successful kickstarter from 2013 called Cthulhu Wars. Today, Petersen Games released a two player version called Cthulhu Wars: Duel and we were lucky enough to get a chance to play it before the release. This was a fun, quick miniatures style game where you are racing to be the first person to 30 victory points. However, while it is quick to play, there is strategy and tactics on every turn along with the constant thinking ahead on what to do next. The moves made by your opponent could drastically change your plans and even adjust your overall strategy.
This game includes standees, but that is a plus in my opinion. It keeps the cost down and makes it accessible. You can always upgrade the components later, but what a great way to try this out and decide if it is a game for you.
Big thanks to Petersen Games for letting us have a copy and share our thoughts
