Call of Cthulhu Terror Paths: Sandy Petersen returns again to Lovecraftian gaming with a new board game

Posted by Michael O'Brien on 6th Oct 2021

Forty years ago Sandy's roleplaying game Call of Cthulhu was published by Chaosium. It changed the world of gaming and also made the then-obscure writer Lovecraft and his creations (such as Cthulhu) both cultural phenomena.

Now Sandy Petersen is back with a new board game inspired by the Call of Cthulhu RPG, and produced under license from Chaosium Inc.

"It’s terrific to re-activate my old connections with Chaosium and work closely with them once more. I look forward to introducing new players to the horror of Lovecraft’s tales with a fast and easy to play board game. It also has the depth and detail to fascinate even the most experienced gamer. It provides an authentic and unique Call of Cthulhu experience. The game design is done and I consider Call of Cthulhu Terror Paths my personal contribution to the 40th anniversary of Call of Cthulhu!" — Sandy Petersen

Expected release will be in 2022.

Terror crawls beneath the surface of our world.
Secret passages lead to hideous destinations that bear witness to unspeakable deeds.
Hidden in the shadows THEY want to bring about events to shatter the minds of mankind and tear asunder the cosmos itself.
