This updated version of the 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.

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 story and adventure plots to the other players. Dice and the rules of the game determine the success or failure for your character’s actions—all while you are propelled into dramatic and nerve-tingling situations

40th Anniversary Edition includes newly designed covers and new-format investigator sheets!
