“In the Vastnesses transcending our world are Shapes of darkness that seize and bind. The Affair that shambleth about in the night, the Evil that defieth the Elder Sign, the Herd that stand watch at the secret portal each tomb is known to have.”
–H.P. Lovecraft, Through the Gates of the Silver Key
Attention, investigators, servitors, and cultists!

Friday evening, all cultist will be welcome to chat, socialize, and play casual games for fun…or training! This is also a good time to finish “fine tuning” your decks.
Calling Down the Ancients
Then, Saturday morning, October 27th, the main event will start at 10 AM. The European Championship Tournament will feature four Swiss rounds, then a cut to elimination play between the tournament’s top eight participants.
Thanks to FFG, Objectif Jeux, L'Autre Monde, and EagleCard, every participant will receive a generous cache of prizes. Moreover, the new European Champion will also be rewarded with the chance to design his or her own champion card, which will be published in a future expansion. The Champion also qualifies for free entrance and a first round bye to the FFG World Championship Weekend two weeks later in Roseville, MN.
Day Dreams and Night Terrors
On Sunday, players will have the chance to participate in an original variant, created just for the event: “Ticking clock and hidden stories.” This variant introduces a dawn-day-twilight-night cycle which gives temporary powers to certain factions. The variant rules can be downloaded freely from rapidshare.

Based on the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft and his literary circle, Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game takes two players deep into the Cthulhu Mythos where investigators clash with the Ancient Ones and Elder Gods for the fate of the world. The Living Card Game format allows players to customize their gaming experience with monthly Asylum Pack expansions to the core game.
