As a man who primarily plays Agency... I am beyond excited about this release.  I've never run a Government deck... but hey, sounds like it'll be the perfect time!

Huh, The Anderson Building is bizarre as heck.  That'll be a fun one to try to play with.

The Great Work + Obsessive Inmate so that you can trigger effects constantly whilst your opponent can't seems mean yet fun :)

 

Lots of interesting, but strong cards!

Torch the Joint!

 

I'm pumped for this too, lots of fun cards for my Area 51 Mi-Go Government deck.  However, I do hope this set adds a few dimensions to Agency outside the government subtype.

feels like a lot of these cards shut down common syndicate strategies which I hate but is thematic.

Haven't looked at the cards yet, but is there a Mulder or Scully in the box?

 

Meh, dare to dream . . .

God damn po-po ruining it for the working man ;)

 

Usual Suspects with with Tragic Celebrity for more cards, or Keeper of the Silver Sphere for a icon heavy character, since Usual Suspects will stay in play longer.

I missed that too!  Whoo!  That's going to be REALLY annoying for some of my opponents to go against.

Agency has always been my least favorite faction, but this set seems to really be giving them some nice stuff!

I absolutely love the design (so far) of this expansion, and the direction the game could go because of it.  Re-energizing the factions by revisiting the older themes, and adding playability to existing cards is going to get more people interested.  Side question:  This box seems (again, so far) really different from a design perspective.  Is there a new team on Cthulhu design?

Can't remember his name right now but the main guy for Conquest works on Cthulhu with Damon I believe. He also worked on Syndicates though.

Nice!  Something new with the Polar trait as well!

 

Plus, it looks like a card I'll want to try out anyway.

Brad is the other designer.  He's been on Cthulhu for a while though.
