All The Cthulhu Hack Sale

All The Cthulhu Hack Sale

In a spirit of celebration, the Christmas decorations have gone up around the office and the house, and I’m sat here wearing a silly Star Wars themed Christmas jumper. While we all celebrate at different times and for different reasons, I think we can all agree we’re all a little bit closer to When The Stars Are Right. With that in mind – Just Crunch Games offer up a special festive offer to Great Cthulhu and his followers. Buy all…

Dragonmeet 2016

Dragonmeet 2016

A heads-up that I will be attending – and trading – at Dragonmeet in a little over a weeks time – 3rd December, from 10am to around 8pm. From 8pm to midnight, I’ll be running a game. I’ve been going to Dragonmeet for about 10 years, but this will be the first time I’ll have my own table! While I will continue to provide support for All Rolled Up (and probably Arion Games) – which I have done for the last…

I’m currently working up a Cthulhu Hack Demo Pack, which will include a 4-page booklet with a 2-page overview of the game, for players and GM alike, and a 2-page demo adventure, designed to run in 15 minutes or so for 1 or 2 players.

The Cthulhu Hack Unboxed

The Cthulhu Hack Unboxed

I had the opportunity at Spiel 2016 (in Essen) to meet dozens, if not hundreds, of game enthusiasts and chat with them about the unique selling points of The Cthulhu Hack over all the many other options out there. Quick to pick up and fast to get going, the system covers all the essentials needed for investigative role-playing in a book you could probably read in 20 minutes. And I’m really pleased to see that one of the many customers…

Debate Night in America

Debate Night in America

Two powerful figures square up for a final debate certain to spell defeat for one – and recent media attention seems to have swung hard one way. The investigators have a chance to uncover the truth, but they have precious little time to do it and an immovable deadline looming. I’ve been a fan of Nathan Hill since I picked up a copy of his excellent sci-fi game Foreign Element – and then ran an adventure on a suspiciously orange planet….
