Chaosium will be running 1 hour demonstration games of Call of Cthulhu at Tauranga, Wellington and Auckland. Our award-winning roleplaying games, boardgames, and fiction have been acclaimed as some of the most engaging and innovative of all time.

For over 35 years, Call of Cthulhu has been regarded as the foremost game of mystery and horror. For those brave enough to uncover its secrets, the rewards are beyond comprehension! Roleplaying gaming (or RPG) is a social pastime. You and your friends develop a story in which your characters play leading roles, working together to uncover sinister plots and battling the minions of the Cthulhu Mythos. Each player takes on the role of an investigator, while one player is the referee - the Keeper of Arcane Lore (Keeper for short) who presents the plot and setting to the other players. It’s a bit like acting, but there isn’t a script. Using dice and the Call of Cthulhu rules, you determine the success or failure of your character’s actions, while you are propelled into dramatic situations.

Come join our volunteer Keepers who will provide everything you need to play the following 1 hour demo game of Call of Cthulhu:

Last Will and Testament of Prof. McTavish - by Fred Love
Professor McTavish’s will seeks friends to put right a wrong he committed while alive. You need merely retrieve an artifact from a hidden room beneath his family mausoleum. (Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition - Classic Era, 4 players per table, 1 hour long; beginners welcome!)
