Day 14 of October Horror Month: Call of Cthulhu The Card Game

I had the opportunity to play Call of Cthulhu The Card Game and I was impressed. I had played the original by Chaosium and was not impressed, but still enjoyed aspects of it. But in this game, wholly new and different from the first, the game is wonderfully made, with reasons to appreciate it for the seasoned reader of H.P. Lovecraft, to those who've never turned a page. Fantasy Flight Games made sure that I'd be coming back to play this...


Ancient, nameless horrors dwell in the darkness, writhing in the night sky and under the earth, just beyond our senses. In Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game, players take the roles of investigators, villains, and unspeakable horrors inspired by the dark mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. Agency detectives , Miskatonic University students and faculty, and the members of the mysterious Syndicate all join the fight against otherworldly beings including Cthluhu, Hastur, Yog-Sothoth, and Shub Niggurath.

Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game is 2-player, customizable card duel game in which players command both human and monster factions. As a Living Card Game, hundreds of additional Cards are available for all seven factions, allowing players to customize the contents of this set, or create their own original decks. Lovecraft's horrors live, in Call of Cthulhu: The Card game!
