Out in double-quick time, the recording of this morning's meeting of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club. Join me, Fin, Marty and Val as we discuss all things Cthulhu, Lovecraft and (as usual) quite a bit more.

After November's announcement of audio adventures, Modiphius Entertainment are expanding their Achtung! Cthulhu line further into other media with a crowd funder to produce Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics "Forest of Fear" - a turn-based strategy video game.
As of writing, the Kickstarter is about to reach its initial goal of £10,000 (with announced stretch goals up to £30K) and runs until 4th March.
The game will be published by Ripstone regardless, the crowd funder is to add yet more. Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is due for release in Q4 2018.
Some 20 years ago (about the time this web site was starting) Michael Gentry created one of the most well regarded Lovecraftian interactive fiction ("text adventure") games: Anchorhead.

Pelgrane Press have dealt a new hand for their Cthulhu Confidential roleplaying game with the release of a printable Problem & Edges Deck - a handy manifestation of the "Problem" and "Edge" cards that investigators accumulate during play.
The Cthulhu Confidential Problem & Edges Deck is available in PDF form directly from Pelgrane's web site (or via DriveThruRPG), which can then be printed at your leisure. No news yet as to whether they will also make an appearance on DriveThruCards [POD], but we'll keep you posted.
