When I were a wee lad, we just had a plain old pack of playing cards and were grateful for it! I used to play card matching games with my grandmother - I'm not sure what she'd have made of Recall of Cthulhu but I think I would have loved it (well, you know me).
Recall of Cthulhu is a children's memory matching game from Toy Vault. (All those plushies you may have "accidentally" bought over the years? - Blame them.) The game is on Kickstarter (running until 26th September, 2015).
I must say the last couple of Cthulhu/Lovecraftian Kickstarter videos I've seen really have upped the stakes in presentation.
The new, second edition of Cthulhu Dark Ages is now officially on sale from Chaosium. Previously, advance copies were available at Gen Con 2015 (we talked about the supplement in August’s Cthulhu Breakfast Club) but it’s now appeared on general (print) release directly from Chaosium’s web site.
Cthulhu Dark Ages provides a post-Roman/Early Medieval setting for your games and has been revised and updated for 7th edition Call of Cthulhu by Chad Bowser, Andi Newton, Mike Mason & friends.
Interestingingly the electronic/PDF version of Cthulhu Dark Ages 2e doesn't seem to be available at this time but we’ll keep an eye out for it!
Welcome to the August 2015 meeting of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club!
In this summer edition we talk about Moon Design and Chaosium, Delta Green 1960 and today, Cthulhu Dark Ages 2e, server upgrades, ENnie Awards 2015, Val's mystery cruise and NecronomiCon 2015 - featuring added Yog Meet!
Those are some of the highlights (we won't mention the lowlights).
It's a testament to the quality of the new microphone system that it's actually easier to hear what we're saying via this recording that it was trying to talk to each other at the same table - Pickles Tea Room was rather busy indeed.
You may remember the mysterious countdown clock that Pelgrane Press had on its web site the other month (a topic of amusement in the June & July editions of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club). It turns out this led to the announcement of Cthulhu Apocalypse, a compendium and expansion of Graham Walmsley's post-apocalyptic 1930s scenarios and setting material for Trail of Cthulhu.
If you were fortunate enough to be at Gen Con 2015 you could buy a copy, for everyone else it should be out in print in a few weeks or so, with the PDF version available now directly from Pelgrane's web shop.
The latest news from the The Future of Chaosium seminar at Gen Con 2015 reveals that Rick Meints, Jeff Richards, Michael O'Brien and Neil Robinson of Moon Design Publications (makers of Gloranthan-based games) are to take over as the principals running the company.
Rick Meints is the new President of Chaosium.
