Call of Cthulhu Quick-Start Rules $0.00
Publisher: Chaosium
by Dennis S. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 05/30/2012 17:59:08
The Call of Cthulhu quick-start rules are definitely a step in the right direction to get players started on the game. However, it feels as though an opportunity was missed to reduce the size of the game even more and still completely retain its essence when compared to newer games like Trail of Cthulhu. The Resistance Table is still a page-long ASCII art project, for example, and the stats could have been unified under a single simple rolling mechanic, rather than some rolling 3d6 and some rolling 2d6+6 and so on. The Occupations section could've used a bit less trimming than these mechanical elements. The inclusion of character sheets and a small adventure is quite helpful. For free, this is a great product, and a great introduction to Call of Cthulhu, but I feel that it could've been even simpler for newer players.
