Cthulhu:Dark Providence
Common is milking its cash cow again with a just announced
Dark Providence Game. Not much info except it's a rethemed
Study in Emerald transported from Sherlock Homes England to
the 1920's US.The Game offer a 2 player Game & a Solo Game.

Looks like the Game is ready or near ready to go so probably not
a KS & more likely to be a preorder or direct release.

Here's a link to the announcement on You Tube.

(Looks like my resistance to buying new Games is breaking down,
but I'm waiting for more info.

PS- Here's a blurb from Comicbook Gaming:

CMON Games is expanding its line of Cthulhu-themed games. At CMON Expo USA this weekend, CMON announced Cthulhu: Dark Providence, a new game that reimplements the classic A Study in Emerald board game that was originally published in 2013. The game will be set in the same world as Cthulhu: Death May Die, a cooperative strategy game also published by CMON. The designers will bring in historical characters for Dark Providence, with Wyatt Earp, Nikola Tesla, and gangster Arnold Rothstein all mentioned as appearing in the new game.

A Study in Emerald is a team-based game, where players work to either support or resist the ruling Old Ones by drafting cards and building a deck to help control various cities. While players are all competing against each other to some extent, a player can only win if their faction ultimately succeeds in one of several victory condition. The player with the best score among the winning team ultimately wins the game. Therefore, players have to determine who is on their side and pursue cooperative goals, while also trying to be the dominant player

Dark Providence will also feature a solo and two-player modes, which weren't present in the original game. No release date released.

Good to know. The previous Neil Gaiman was originally $100 and sold for $150 back in 2020.

CMON's "DCeased" Zombicide game is coming to KS, so I'm also hoping C:DP doesn't. While the game has meeple zombies and character run around the board, BGG images don't give me the impression that this is suitable as your typical miniature-laden Ameritrash game.

I don't own any Martin Wallace games and this game has rave(nous) reviews, so I'm happy to see it in print, even without the Gaiman serial numbers.
