goo Welcome to the first PBF for Cthulhu Wars on BGG goo


If you're interested in joining a PBF game for Cthulhu Wars, add your name to the waiting list found here: http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/CW_PBF

If you are interested in joining, please post in this thread.

The one condition you need to fulfill is that you need to know how to play this game (sort of).
I recommend watching the explanation videos for the different factions: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC748RHM4_a-SqloeZIlg-vw/vid...

Be aware that, since this is the first PBF for this game, there might be a few hiccups along the way.

Game Type
This PBF will be a 4 player game using only the base game.

Once we have confirmed the players, I will randomly determine the seating order and then you can choose your faction based on that order.

Post Typography
* Normal text for discussions, etc.
* Italics for flavor text/fluff. This is optional.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions.

Game Turn
1. Gather Power
° 1 Power / Cultist on the map
° 2 Power / controlled Gate on the map
° 1 Power / empty Gate on the map
° 1 Power / captured enemy Cultist
2. Determine First Player
° Player with the most Power becomes First Player & chooses play direction (up or down)
3. Doom Phase
° 1 Doom point / controlled Gate
° Perform a Ritual of Annihilation (optional)
4. Action Phase
° Perform 1 Common or Unique Action
° Perform unlimited Actions

Post the actions you would like to take or a conditional order of the actions you would like to take depending on previous actions.
Please be precise in your orders, and conditional orders are a great way to keep things moving along.

Images
Try to start your posts with your faction's banner. Alternately, if you are in a hurry, posting from a mobile device, etc., bold your factions name at the top of the post. The banners are as follows:


I will usually refer to everyone by their faction name.

Rolling Dice
Use the geekroll-feature to roll your own dice.
1-3 is a Miss, 4-5 is a Pain, 6 is a Kill.

You can use the following custom die instead, if you want to:
Xcustomw{3: Miss;2: Pain;1: Kill}
(X = number of dice you need to roll)

Ghroth, The Thousand Forms, Devolve & similar Spellbooks/Abilities:
Players will have 24 hours to discuss and find a decision when Ghroth or The Thousand Forms is used.
Similar for Devolve: Cthulhu will have max. 24 hours to devolve his Cultists after a player's action.

And that should be it… goo

Cthulhu Wars PBF #1: Stars Aligned

Ok, let's indeed just go with "first come, first served".

Player order will be: (randomized via Excel)
1. thegrinder
2. Pitpipo
3. Valandor
4. Guzmino


Whoever takes Great Cthulhu will be the "First Player", determines play direction (up or down), and then we will directly go to the first Action Phase.

Note that the faction sheets currently shown on the map will of course be rearranged depending on who takes what.

Anyone of us have any preference on what we want to play?

I've just played Great Cthulhu once.

I chose Black Goat because noone had asked for it...

... and because I love it.

EDIT @redmikanas, which size should we display our faction banners? I went with medium because it seemed the best choice.

Understood ! Mine is clearly Crawling Chaos, but I'm saving her for my first physical game (whenever that will be)

Re: Cthulhu Wars PBF #1: Stars Aligned

@thegrinder: Either way is fine. They are readable in small and medium, and most of the time I'll probably just use the color of the banner as orientation anyway.

That said, if you want to keep things tidy, use medium.
If you quote someone, try to remove the "medium" from the quoted banner.


Pitpipo is First Player. This is indicated by the skull on the left side of his faction sheet. The pointy end is used to indicate the play direction, which is currently shown as down, i.e. Yellow Sign would theoretically be next.

Pitpipo can still change the direction, followed by his first action.

Spend 1 power: Move a cultist to Scandinavia

Also Pitpipo if you use {ImageID=2087547 medium} (except with square brackets) it changes into the size we use
