Style of play
NOTE: this game may have player vs player scenes so be okay with it.
COC is a game that focuses on the mood and story and not so much the mechanics. It is easy to pick up, not crunchy. It is a game that tends to be one of the group discovering a horror and either dying or being haunted by that moment.
As a result this probably isn't the game for players who want to be complete badasses. ;)
I shall be guiding beginners along so they get a feel for this classic game.
