A WORLD OF MYSTERY, HORROR, AND ADVENTURE IN A BOX! This Starter Box contains everything you need to start playing Call of Cthulhu―the tabletop roleplaying game of mystery and horror. Players take on the role of investigators of mysteries, uncovering dark secrets, encountering strange monsters, and thwarting sinister cults.

Together, you and your friends create and develop a story in which each of your characters plays a leading role, which could be foiling some dastardly plot or stopping horrors from beyond space and time! Roleplaying gaming is a social pastime.

Everyone works together in a team, each playing an investigator character. One player runs the game―the Keeper of Arcane Lore―who referees the game and presents the adventure plots to the other players. Think of it a bit like acting in a drama, but where there isn’t a script.

Book 2: Call of Cthulhu Starter Rules―the essential rules, everything needed for starting play.
