Scrap The Diseases & Add Cthulhu To Z-Man’s Pandemic

February 3, 2016 by brennon

It looks like we’re going to be getting a new version of Pandemic with a Cthulhu twist from Z-Man. It seems like it was going to be inevitable that this happened and I have to admit that Reign Of Cthulhu looking rather good from what we’ve seen so far…

Pandemic Reign of Cthulhu

It looks like the roles of the Investigators will be similar to those of the disease control team in the original Pandemic but with a few twists and some very nice looking models.

Reign of Cthulhu (Investigators)

Cubes appear to have been replaced by Cultists and there appears to be some reference to the big bad foes from the Cthulhu-verse like the Shoggoth. I imagine these will be big enemies spawned when you’d normally have an outbreak.

Reign of Cthulhu (Board)

It will be interesting to see how this develops as you try to stop a plot from within the city. There also appears to be additional mechanics in place for using dice in the game which was never a part of the original Pandemic. I’m exciting to find out how it plays.

What do you think?
