Have a question?
As a backer of all CW kickstarters and a completist, I have already given to Sandy so much money that some dollars of cards + shipping really don't make any difference. Of couse I'm ready to pay, but at this point, why not add also a physical copy of the the "Colour out of space" instructions? Exactly, I'm referring to the OS2 version of the "Colour out of space", as the plastic gates for the OS3 version will be not be available until this summer. So here it is the complete card list for this hypothetical add-on:
- The Eidolon and the Prophethess
- The modified spellbooks for Great Chtulhu and Tcho-Tcho
- The astral acolyte instructions
- The unique high priests
- The "Colour out of space" instructions
- Multiple copies of the hint cards
Did I forget anything?
Massimo Corsi: "I don't think that printing and selling little group of cards would be profitable for Petersen Games: too much work and too few buyers. "
You're probably not wrong but I'm willing to pay for them. And, Sandy brought back the Shining Trapezohedron because backers in the comments said they'd pay for it. I figured they'd bundle them something like they did for this add-on: https://petersengames.com/the-games-shop/upgraded-cardstock-items/
Also, I particularly like that you cited where Sandy committed to each item. The hint cards, admittedly, only have the promise of James asking Arthur to look the dead link (they were out there once!).
Forgive me, Mendon. I forgot to include the hint cards in the list. Let's do it immediately:
An HQ pdf of the hint cards, possibly in all the languages available for the base game.
That said, I don't think that printing and selling little group of cards would be profitable for Petersen Games: too much work and too few buyers. The fullfilment of our requests depends only on Sandy's benevolence, which is both a good and a bad thing. The good part is that many times Sandy followed the suggestions of his backers (improving on them, too), the bad part is that we have no way of forcing him or his collaborators to hear us, beside whining here and in other forums.
@Massimo and @Sandy, if Petersen Games added all of Massimo's items plus some extra hint cards (I have to grind that axe) to the shop, I'd gladly pay the $5 + shipping that PG charges for these types of minor add-ons.
Regarding the CW download page, here it is a list of the files that in my opinion should be added:
The HQ pdf of "The Eidolon" special cultist (a low resolution version is available in update #8). Ideally, the pdf should contain also a back side for the card, perhaps the same used for "The Prophetess" (see below). Such a pdf would be highly useful to all backers owning the HPL grey figure and wanting to use it in their games.
The HQ pdf of the two modified spellbooks for Great Chtulhu described in update #11. This pdf would be highly useful to all backers wanting to print the modified spellbooks and glue them over the old books (see below to read the exact words used by Sandy)
The HQ pdf of the two modified spellbooks for ThcoThos described in update #35. I'd like to point out that In the update Sandy wrote "If you are not backing this campaign, or know a friend who isn't, he can get downloadable pdfs of the new spellbooks from our website. Just print them out and glue them over the old books".
The HQ pdf of "The Prophetess" special cultist (a high resolution version was available in update #47, of course without a back side). Such a pdf would be highly useful to all backers owning the Arsenath Waite grey figure and wanting to use it in their games.
The HQ pdf of the infamous "Astral Acolyte". This pdf is downloadable from everywhere in Internet except from the CW download page, so perhaps it would be nice to make it officially available to all backers. I bet that any backer can find an unused acolyte figure to play the part of this etheral fellow!
An updated version of the "Unique High Priests" pdf (from CW OS 2), containing the back side of the cards. This is the object of my private war: after much insistence, finally (on august 19) Sandy said "Massimo: you have made it clear that you want us to provide the backsides of cards as a download", but since then no backside nor any new downloadable files appeared in the CW download section.
I believe that the requests above are not only reasonable, but also quite easy to fulfill. There is no Pledge Master or tooling process involved: just a man with a word processor who exports some files and uploads them on the Petersen Games Internet site. If you really read all comments as you say, Sandy, please give us this miracle and let the files above appear!
Any update on how the tooling is going? Cannot wait for this to ship :)
The latest files in the CW downloads page were added before the start of the Onslaught 3 campaign, I think. I remember that three months ago Sandy announced that the modified Chtulhu and TchoTcho spellbooks would be available for download very soon, but for now he didn't keep his promise. Now that the Pledge Master has closed, perhaps we should ask for an update of that page with a little more insistence...
@James Frashure, Any follow up from Arthur on getting the hint cards posted as HQ downloadable PDFs? Maybe out on the CW downloads page (https://petersengames.com/downloads/)?
Thanks for clarification James! Now all I should do is wait for the game!
@magisystem, I guess not. I tried the dark, but it didn't seem to glow. I just wasn't sure if it needed to charge or not, as some glow in the dark pieces need a little time with the light, maybe? I don't know. I'm curious to see a pic of yours.
Artem Holubiev said: Should I be worried if my credit card was billed after PM had been closed? My receipt from Pledge Master contains everything and the payment amounts are correct...
Answer: No the PM is locked for changes to any pledge items, so you can not add or subtract anything from your pledge. It is still open to accept payments and so you can make update to your address.
@Jon if you have the original one, then you know better than me if it gliws in the dark. I can only say what the staff told me when they handed me a silver primed acolyte.
@Artem Holubiev That is my question too, I don't understand then "Lock" but still can check out with a change. Did the time zone math wrong and added stuff within the hour after. It seems the checkout button should have been disabled like the Late backer pledge link above.
Hello all! Should I be worried if my credit card was billed after PM had been closed? My receipt from Pledge Master contains everything and the payment amounts are correct...
@Magisystem, oh, so the green one isn't actually glow in the dark? It is still a cool figure, though.
Here is the pic of the one I got with the magazine: https://www.instagram.com/p/BbWCnPjnnX2/…
So, now that it's closed — PG, any chance you're willing to share how much was raised in the Pledgemaster post-KS? I'm just curious, since we did over $1M during the actual campaign. Rounded to the nearest $10K would be fine. :)
Okay, I'm off to work on the new addition to my house; gotta get it finished before next summer.
Onslaught 3 is nominated for the 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2018.
You can second the nomination here:
Also, feel free to leave a comment as to why you're excited about the game, and feel free to add any additional nominations to the list.
The top 50 nominees make it through to the vote for the Top 20 in January 2018.
@PG coud someone answer questions and give update on the God of War KS? This is a shame!!!
@Jon I got an astral acolyte at Spiel in Essen. But because the original minis were held at customs, Sandy et al. could only hand out the rules and handpainted (just primed) cthulhu acolytes. I asked about the glow in the dark effect and they told me that this was an idea but had to be changed for some reasons. According to the Petersen Games staff the real astral acolytes are silver/grey.
Not sure if anyone is aware of this, but there is a Game Trade Magazine called GTM, which has a Cthulhu Wars promo, the Astral Acolyte that supposedly glows in the dark. Rules for it are near the back of the mag!
Plus, if you own it, it also has a Star Trek: Five Year Mission 8th player board, with Wesley. Also a Tsuro piece, but eh.
The acoylte figure is pretty cool!
Hmm I got the time zone difference wrong and just checked out before 7pm EST / 6pm CST. So even though there was a receipt I am not getting charged and it does not show up on my PM profile?
I M - I still can't check out no matter what card I use.
Answer - Call your bank, we have seen this several times this is a new program so backers have not made a payment to this site, so a lot of banks will block the payment until you call them to protect you from a scam or having your card stolen.
I still can't check out no matter what card I use.
I thought I'd be able to resists getting 400 battle dice. I was wrong.
@Michel: Yes it is solved yet, but thx.
@James: Thanks for your fast support.
Sure, I'll help. You mus write to James : Support@petersengames.com
Ive right now 598$ unspent dollar because i cant logg back my GOO Pledge. Please help me!
Just in Case you guys missed it in the updates comments, Arthur wrote:
the answer is YES. Sorry for the confusion - translation packs, because they have what's in the core game, DO HAVE the 3mm ritual and doom tracks.
@Arthur thanks for the clarification
Ich habe gerade meinen Pledge Manager überprüft und festgestellt, dass ich das falsche Sprachpaket gewählt hatte. Beim ändern der Sprache habe ich versehentlich auf ein anderes Pledge Level gecickt und jetzt ist es unmöglich wieder mein GOO Pledge Level auszuwählen! Ich benötige dringend hilfe!
Anyone have a link or list of things that are needed to get everything if I've gotten everything available in both Original and Onslaught 2 Kickstarters? I have the shining trapezohedron and that covered the custom dice pack? I haven't opened my onslaught 2 stuff but I think I have all the colored gates too. Do I need 3mm punchboards or is it included in something else?
I'm currently at the $199 Yothan level, just trying to figure out what's needed to complete the "all in everything" for Onslaught 3. Thanks for any help.
@james: Please help me!!!!!! ive lost my goo pledge
Charles Griffis Jr- Tried to finalize my PM twice now. It keeps saying error try again later or try a different card.
Answer - Call your bank let them know about the transition. Also try again in a little bit the site might just be busy, if you are using a phone or tablet try using a computer.
Ive got a big problem:
I already had checked out. Now ive checked my cart and clicked another pledge sadly, now i cant go back to my old pledge level because it says it is sold out! Plz help me!
I still can't get it to let me check out. Every time I've ever clicked "Check Out" it gives me a blank "Please Wait" page that really should say "Please Wait Forever" because it stays that way and never moves on.

@Mendon Dornbrook Thanks. I find the PM more than a tad confusing and unintuitive in this respect.
I completed the process for the pledge manager already and received a receipt. Don’t want to go back and check in case it opens it again.
I found the backend on the pledge manager poor, especially in knowing if you got the credit for the previous Kickstarter and not really knowing if I am all set is not what you want this late in the process.
Any preview of the OS3 omega for critiquing? Help catch issues before it goes to press.
Well, pledgemaster denied me, bank said it isn't on their side, I emailed support, what now?
@Equivocal: That seems to be the case. I reopened my pledge because I wanted to browse the add-ons and didn't realize that, even though I didn't change anything that my pledge was technically reopened.
So if I log in and it says "The receipt for your order is below." listing all my stuff, I've checked out and all is fine right?
btw: did anyone get an email confirmation for the receip? i just saw that i just printed mine on pledgemaster.games...
looked it up again: "Will the 3mm Doom & Ritual tracks be in the Translation packs? - Yes. Zuletzt aktualisiert: Son, 30. Juli 2017 17:07 CEST"
This is the last FAQ Answer. So i think everything should be clear. Btw if it was not to be intended i think it would be unfair to change it after the campaign!!! You just need to add the tracks to the translation kit (if this should be the case). 100$ is really a lot of money and the 3mm tracks should definitly be part of this package.
@JAMES & MAGICSYSTEM: thx for your fast answers. but now i need quick help (if PM will closed tomorrow). of course i DID NOT ADD the 3 mm tracks as i still believe (like magicsystem) that they are included as it is stated in the pledge manager addon selection as well as in FAQ. I really want to have the 3mm but i dont want two of them.
Plz try to post a clear official statement quickly that we still have time to change PM. Urgs - would it be possible to change my order? i already got my receip in email.
Please clarify in an update, which components (faction sheet, spell books) we will get in replacement (corrected text and thicker cardboard)!
Could we get an official statement to the wrong german pick-ups (OS2) in Essen and their replacement tiles? It would be very kind, because we didn‘t get the product we pledged for (OS3 in german)! Thank You!
PM still close on 10th Nov. ?
Scott D - Just finalised my PM for this. It's official. This is now the most expensive game to be a part of my collection. It used to be CMON big box Arcadia quest tied with Massive darkness. But now this takes the top spot. Over a grand on a boardgame. I must be crazy haha.
Answer - No Scott you just have good taste!!!!!
magisystem - James Frashure please talk with Sandy and Arthur about this topic and then post an official statement here that we can refer to in the future.
Answer- I did confirm this with Arthur, the Answer I was given was no but, he might have been confused, because you are right the FAQ clearly say's yes. I will follow up on this. And I will ask him to put it out in the next update. I will Also post the answer to just because it will get you the answer quicker.
