Is it only me that feels that the lack of speculation and rumors about the new game released by Petersengame is due to the fact that everybody else already knows what it is, and it is only I who is left out?

I am very excited, soon the stars will be right (even for me).

Part of me thinks it will be a departure from Cthulhu since Sandy has spent almost the past 2 years working on Cthulhu Wars in one form or another, but then again, it's not his first time delving into the Mythos, so maybe not. Perhaps it won't even be a combat game, or at least not as combat heavy as Cthulhu Wars. Maybe a more Euro-game resource collection/worker management type game?


We'll ultimately find out during GenCon when they make the announcement.

My guess is that the game will be a Non-Mythos game.
Based on the change of name, from Green Eye Games, to Petersen Games. Some what weak argument, but that all I got.

Probably a steam punk, zombie, decbilder/miniature game hybrid!

Green Eye Games LLC is the corporation formed to exploit Cthulhu Wars and all its expansions. It still exists.

Petersen Games LP is the partnership which OWNS Green Eye Games. We have kind of a complicated company structure for reasons that make sense to our accounting firm.

For those who know my history in gaming, the new game will make total sense. It is a topic that I know a lot about, and am keenly interested in.

I will say that I am not a fan of steampunk, anime, nor alternate history. And games such as the new Dawgs of War completely mystify me. I guess I'm stodgy.

I stand corrected, thank you Sandy.
That's makes sense (I'am almost an accountant).

But, then I am complete at lost what kind of game it will be.

But I still guess Non-Mythos.
(One of the reasons is that I would REALLY like more Mythos-game in my collection, and guessing a Non-Mythos is a way of comforting me beforehand (or something like that)).

Too many games on Sandy's wikipedia page to make an accurate guess.

There is a duck in every game. You may not see it, but it's there.

My guess.....


Scifi dungeon crawler, i.e. board game version of an fps.

or

a game based on the roman empire

or

the long shot, a zoo simulator or similar animal themed game.

A tamagotchi-style Cthulhu pet simulator. You've got to care and feed for a shoggoth or a deep-one and raise it to be the biggest terror on the block.

A European style shipping game, naturally.

In "Innsmouth Trading House" players compete trying to optimize their efficiency in buying and selling goods from trading hubs around the world such as Easter Island, Antarctica, and the lost civilization of Mu. Do you split your funds amid a variety of tomes and artifacts ...or do you attempt a monopoly on Powder of Ibn Ghazi? Only the shrewdest analytical mind will rise to the top of modest sized occult business interests to claim the prize of "best modest sized occult business" in the Northeast.

Cthulhu Monopoly. Every space you land on is absolutely destroyed. Players skip over destroyed spaces. Games lasts 5 minutes tops and is easily the best version of Monopoly ever.

Money rolls in, famonosity assured.

You're welcome.

I second here.

Considering the know-how acquired with CW, it's probable that the game will have miniatures and LOTS of expansions.

A easy path would be to make a new go at Cthulhu World Combat.

I will say that it was neat to watch Sandy playtest the new game with construction paper and random action figures back when I visited in January. Watching the humble beginnings of greatness makes me wonder what it'll be like when it's done.

Aha! Then it is not a digital game, but a boardgame. Sounds good!

Not necessarily true; digital card or strategy games frequently get mocked up with physical widgets.

All,

It would be cool if GEG or SandyPetersen Inc made a "Starcraft-like" version of Cthulhu Wars! Of course it would need to be a bit more "combat" oriented then the current boardgame....CW as a PC game would be fun!
