The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.117: Shadow Hunters

More gaming tat today: on this occasion, the Shadow Hunters expansion to the Shadows Over Normandie WW2 tactical level combat boardgame, based in the Achtung! Cthulhu universe, and in which warriors of the Tlingit people of the Pacific Northwest help the Allies battle the horrific (and battle-armoured) Fungi from Yuggoth. I’m not quite sure where I stand on the politics of this but, the exoticisation, problematic representation, and appropriation of indigeneity aside, this is apparenly an exclusive and extremely limited-run item. Which is nice.
