Something Wicked This Way Comes

Greetings Lovecraft lovers!

Woohoo! We just unlocked Yig! Thank you all so much for making that happen.

So, you all know we’ve been alluding to our big plans for a Monster expansion if we unlocked enough stretch goals, so with a week left in the campaign it’s time to spill the beans. We’ve been testing Monsters since way before the campaign started, and our ultimate goal is to produce these Beasts From Beyond in a special expansion box that would be offered in retail for $29.95.

If we continue to spread the word about all the awesomeness that every backer can get when they pledge for Fate of the Elder Gods, we can provide the Beasts From Beyond expansion for free to every Kickstarter backer! You’ve all already unlocked the Mi-Go and Shoggoth for Monsters, as well as Ghatanothoa and Yig for extra Elder Gods, but as you can see from our Stretch Goal graphic there are still many more to come! This expansion would include those Monsters and Elder Gods you’ve unlocked, along with those Monsters and extra Elder Gods that are coming up. But you’ll also receive a whole slew of extra Spells (summoning Monsters, placing Curses, and all sorts of cool stuff), as well as Tarot-card-sized Monster cards detailing the amazing advantages you can receive by harnessing the power of these beasts for the betterment of your Cults!

We have full confidence that we can unlock the full Beasts From Beyond expansion if we just keep spreading the word of this campaign far and wide. You can do your part by telling everyone you know, and posting excitement and experience on every social media site you can think of. In particular, if those of you out there who have demoed the game at Gen Con and beyond could post a rating and comments on BoardGameGeek, that would be super helpful. Let’s show everyone how fun Fate can be to play!

      Awesome update! Turned me from a 1$ backer to a 127$ backer ;)! ( base game + pad add-on + transport to Sweden)

      @Robert - Yeah, at least $150k. But the funding projection continues to look excellent, and we've almost always seen a high curve in the last 48 hours. Lots of $1 backers on this project. http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/gtgames/fate-of-the-elder-gods-the-boardgame-of-lovecrafti/#chart-exp-projection

      It looks like it will be at least $150k. That's quite a bit for less than a week although we might be lucky with the 48 hour rush.
