Pandemic Reign of Cthulhu


When I said 'Coming Soon...' I'd forgotten it was half-term and the kids were at home so I'm afraid putting our Pulp Alley AAR together has taken a back seat. Sorry. That said we have done some gaming...but of the boardgame variety! Mainly, Pandemic Reign of Cthulhu....in fact, we finally managed to defeat the Old Ones! Hooray!


If you haven't played it before I would highly recommend it. It's a great co-op game that can be easily picked up by kids (my daughter is 7 and had no problem)...though it is hard to win. It can also be played solo.

Here's a teaser...




And here's some blurb...

Beings of ancient evil, known as Old Ones, are threatening to break out of their cosmic prison and awake into the world. Everything you know and love could be destroyed by chaos and madness. Can you and your fellow investigators manage to find and seal every portal in time? Hurry before you lose yourself to insanity.
In Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, you'll experience the classic Pandemic gameplay with an horrific twist that'll have you face twelve Old Ones, each threatening the world with their unique powers. As players take on the roles of investigators attempting to seal a series of portals before monsters of unspeakable horror pour into our world there is, of course, a high risk of the investigators losing their own minds.
Instead of curing diseases like in the original Pandemic, players seal portals and shut down cults in the classic New England fictional towns of Arkham, Dunwich, Innsmouth, and Kingsport. Can you and your fellow investigators manage to find and seal every portal in time? Hurry before you lose yourself to insanity and the evil that lurks beneath your feet...

And some pics...




I'll hopefully be able to get the Pulp Alley AAR finished next week. I should also be getting my latest lot of Pulp figs back from Matt.
