For those who are on the fence, or uncertain whether Cthulhu Wars is really as neat as it seems, I recommend traveling here http://boardgamegeek.com/forum/1386889/cthulhu-wars/reviews
Boardgamegeek is the premier website for boardgamers to meet and discuss games, and as of now there are 5 reviews up, plus at least one more coming soon (this last will be a video review by UndeadViking, a well-known game critic).
All of these reviews (including UndeadViking's) are by guys who either have never met me (Sandy Petersen), or have only met me once, when they played the game (I did not participate in any reviewer's games, though I did provide sodas & snacks in some cases), so you can take all these reviews as impartial. These men owe me nothing.
While I am sure that eventually, as with every popular game, Cthulhu Wars will eventually attract a few unfavorable reviews, the strength of these early reports are pretty telling.
Also I guess I couldn't resist a little showing off, for which I apologize humbly. (If that makes any sense at all).
