Is this a glorious flashback to the first years of the venerable horror RPG, which fans of the system want to add to their collections?

    Our Summary

    Classic Call of Cthulhu Deluxe 2″ Box Set | Review and Page-Through

    The fantastically presented Classic Call of Cthulhu set brings back a ton of great memories from my high school days of running the RPG. Keep in mind as you watch the review, I love Call of Cthulhu and have run the system since its release in 1981. One item to remember is this isn't some collectors' item which should sit on a shelf. The entire contents of the box are absolutely playable to this day and, while our expected presentation as gamers have changed since their release, there are years of CofC adventuring to be had with the rulebook and five supplements. My highest recommendation not only for fans of the system but for newcomers interested in giving the original game of Mythos horror a try.
