What The Critics Say
"Call of Cthulhu is now the Pepsi of RPG franchises, alongside D&D’s Coke, and the game’s success is part of the revival of Lovecraft and Lovecraftian fiction."
— Paul StJohn Mackintosh, The Legacy of Lovecraft.
"The Call of Cthulhu RPG has been in print from the same publisher since 1981. It is the horror RPG that all other horror games are judged by."
— Powell's Bookstore, Call of Cthulhy review.
Call of Cthulhu has been called “one of the best roleplaying games of all time”
— ReviewCredit, ReviewLink.
(Geek & Sundry). But something that’s overlooked about this classic horror RPG… is that it’s also one of the most versatile and well-researched historical RPGs around... I mean honestly, you can now play CoC in more time periods than your average season of Dr Who.
…one of the most iconic tabletop roleplaying games of all time."

The entire package is beautifully done and the art and quality of everything is fantastic.
My group has been playing Call of Cthulhu using the free quick start guide and some old books for reference. However, it quickly became obvious that this system and setting has hooked them all completely. So I stumped up for the slipcase set, and by the old gods it's a beauty. This review is purely a first impression review, and I can say that impressions are good. The books are fantastic, well bound and presented. The slip case looks stunning and will sit nicely on the shelf, slowly corrupting the other RPG books around it. The additional material from the keeper screen looks really good and I can't wait to give it all a proper read. System wise, I cannot comment on the updates from previous instalments. But in comparison to other games we play, the mechanics of this game work really well. The tension of the adventures is well captured and so far, each session has built up into some hanging on to the dice really tightly moments. This product is amazing and each of the books is of a quality I've not come across in a long while. Chaosium has done a brilliant job and I can't wait to get other books to join these ones. Oh and the addition of the free PDFs is really welcomed.
The books, slip screen, and keeper screen are fantastic, and the set comes with a few really cool goodies like scenarios to run. The screen is the main attraction here though, it contains a gamut of useful information, there isn't a single thing on that screen that isn't 100% necessary to running the game. The only reason this didn't get a 5 star review is that some of the materials that it came with such as maps and sheets were somewhat low quality, specifically the map for Amidst the Ancient Trees, which seems to be a printed out screen shot of a page in the book. Other than my small grips, this is a fantastic buy.
Call of Cthulhu 7th edition! What to say? I was hesitant at first when I heard of a new edition. The old incarnation of the game was fantastic, so I often wondered how it was going to change, and usually thought the worst. But 7th edition blew me away. The improvements have changed just enough to freshen up the game while still keeping the system we know and love intact. The changes are smart and posses quality mechanics, not gimmicks. Some changes are purely common sense (attributes as percents, half and fifths skill checks) and some are true game changers that are really brilliant (pushing skills, bonus/penalty die, and luck). Now the big seller are the books themselves. They are beyond gorgeous. Quality covers and bindings, which I was pleased about. The paper is high grade as well. But everything, and I mean everything, is in color and has amazing artwork. The slipcase set is worth every penny and I am seriously contemplating on getting another set to keep pristine! Chaosium hit the ball out of the park on this one.
