Windwalker faction
Tcho Tchos faction
High Priest pack
Great Old Ones pack 1

this gets me to $150. is this a good selection for getting the most out of the game, gameplay wise? or should i swap GOO pack 1 for a map?

That's more or less what I had ordered initially to get me to $150. Just make sure you finalize in the next 24 hours as its being locked on Monday.

I think swapping the GOO Pack out for a map is a good idea. Generally speaking, Factions > Maps > Monsters & GOOs.

I've only got base game and we got 2 plays in yesterday, I think I'll add sleepers, wind walkers, opener of the way, tcho-tcho, high priest pack, plastic gates and hope to do maps down the road, I figure having that many factions should give us enough variety for now, if I grab the maps down the road I'll get the 6-8 player ones too

ended up trying to save some cash and got sleeper, opener, gates, punchboard faction sheets, and an extra set of dice to hit $155, I'll use the cultists from the homebrew faction stretchgoal as high priests for now and down the road I'll snag the real high priests, tcho-tcho, wind walker and the maps

That's pretty close to what I did.

Opener
Sleeper
Tcho-Tcho
Windwalker
High Priests
6-8 player Earth
Faction boards
Plastic gates
Lovecraft bust

I consider the expansion factions the first priority when moving beyond the base game. The high priests are right up there too.

Because I routinely have 5-6 players show up for games, and sometimes more, the 6-8 player Earth map is also a must have. It's hard to get this game to the table as much as I would like because of my shortage of player factions and, if I had enough factions, the map limitation.

The rest are what I consider must have component upgrades.

I figure I will get enough additional play variety from the new factions and high priests to keep me happy for a while. Hopefully by the time I start to regret not getting more maps, monsters, etc., there will be an onslaught 3.

Happy days! You should ask them on page or by PM if all went through ok - just in case - I don't think they'd mind if you checked

I did the 'retrive pledge' thing and its tracking fine though that.

how do all those glow in the dark 'great old ones' work in game/add to the game anyway?

The Stretch Goals include rules for using faction Great Old Ones as independent GOOs. You don't have to use the glow-in-the-dark miniatures for those purposes - but then, why shouldn't you?

They finally allow what all of us fans of Cthulhu Wars have been clamoring for... the ability to play in complete darkness.

Sandy did say at some point during the Gods War campaign that he'd be making rules to use the faction GOOs as Monsters in Gods War too. With the crossover Monster rules for Cthulhu Wars, perhaps the GitDs could be used as Monsters in Cthulhu Wars too.
