Cory Welch has sent us an update about the planned game of Gatsby and the Great Race at Nexus Game Fair.

Greetings Investigators!

We regretfully announce that our shard of Keepers have decided that the Gatsby and the Great Race run at Nexus Game Fair 2018 on Saturday, June 2nd will be canceled.

This was a hard decision, but unfortunately, we only had barely enough players for two tables and the scenario is a special experience that we only want to present with the “total experience”. A two-table game would have been good, but we want our players to have a GREAT experience. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes players who have signed up for the event.

Never fear — we will be arranging to run Gatsby and the Great Race at another great convention in the Illinois/Wisconsin area in the future! We’ll keep you up to date and hope we can bring you an incredible experience in our next run! Until next time!

This video provides a brief overview of the chase rules in 7th edition Call of Cthulhu. Check out our YouTube channel or click on the Videos tab (above) for a selection of other videos explaining both the Quick-Start and full rules.



You wait all this time for a video about the chase rules, then two arrive in the same week! Seth Skorkowsky has also posted a video about chase rules (which goes into more detail):

A guest post from Cory Welch

The Cult of Chaos will be running a return performance of Paul Fricker’s classic multi-table, interactive scenario, Gatsby and the Great Race, at Nexus Game Fair 2018 at the Four Points by Sheraton Milwaukee. This will be a 3-table game running over a 6-hour slot from 2:00 to 8:00 PM on June 2nd.

We have converted the scenario to Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition and we’re looking for investigators to experience the masterpiece. Our local shard of the Cult have had rave reviews from our past runs of Gatsby, and we hope to introduce more Call of Cthulhu fans to this extraordinary scenario!

Nexus Game Fair sign-ups are in progress — don’t miss out! For more information visit!

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
