Kickstarting Cthulhu

Congratulations to Chaosium on the success of their Kickstarter for the seventh edition of Call of Cthulhu. They wanted to take in at least $40,000 to fund printing and shipping a large print run of the new rules. When the campaign ended on July 29 they had brought in $561,836. Along the way they added a slithering host of add-ons and bonuses. Congratulations to Chaosium, and to seventh edition developers Mike Mason and Paul Fricker!

And as I write, this is the last day of the Kickstarter for the boardgame Cthulhu Wars, designed by Call of Cthulhu creator Sandy Petersen. The ideas inĀ Cthulhu Wars first appeared in Cthulhu World Combat, an iOs video game Kickstarter project that failed to bring in enough backers to fund it. But the boardgame version has been a smash. It’s brought in more than $1 million. Huge congratulations are due to Sandy and his colleagues.
