VOLUME I Number 02
A message has roared across the Cosmos. A message from the Old Ones themselves. A message that has shaken the world. Three simple words. SUPPORT INDEPENDENT CREATORS. As huge supporters of independent projects, we feel it is our duty at Strange Aeon Games to do as the Old Ones have commanded, and present to you a monthly collection of new Lovecraftian/Cthulhu related games, books, art, etc. being made available on crowdfunding services like Kickstarter and Indiegogo.
February is generally a slow month in the crowdfunding space, with not much new popping up. As I write this, Call of Madness is finishing up its Campaign (you can put in a late pledge here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/429029786/call-of-madness-board-game), and there's a few other interesting one out there right now, but this month is mostly previous campaigns that are still on sale...
The Heart of Cthulhu 🐙 Card Game
Kickstarter - Patrick & Aaron - Ends March 28, 2021, 6:00 PM MST
"Card game of strategy, chance, peril and discovery with original artwork of monsters, myths, creatures and legends of the sea."
Eighty pages of heroic Cosmic Horror for the 7TV PULP miniature skirmish game; itself an exciting take on 1930's pulp serials, is just the start of what's offered in the latest release from Crooked Dice Game Studio. Retro VHS packaging, cards, miniatures, buildings, interiors, and more! Did I mention the minis!?! LOTS of minis. And the buildings and interiors!?! Even if you've never played 7TV PULP, this project is well worth a look. These accessories are screaming to join your Lovecraftian themed gaming setup.
