Laundry cover

The Laundry RPG recently appeared in a Bundle of Holding deal, and we were bowled over by the response. The Laundry is now in the hands of hundreds more gamers.

As is inevitable with such a darkly funny book, parts of it have started appearing on social media as new Laundry players share their personal highlights with their friends. One particular section from the print edition of the core Laundry manual seems to have really struck a chord. At the time of writing it's been retweeted 647 times, with 520 favourites. It has had 145 +1s on Google plus and 126 shares. It's just reaching Facebook now as far as we can see.

We've never really gone viral before (there was that one time with the Yggdrassil video on youtube but that's another story), so we thought we'd share.

@hishgraphics shared this shot of the Laundry core book, and it's gone crazy:

About The Laundry

The Laundry Files Roleplaying Game novels by Charles Stross. In the game, you play officers of the Laundry, that eccentric and underfunded agency dedicated to protecting the United Kingdom from unthinkable horrors. The Laundry uses the Basic Roleplaying System - the same system that powers the classic Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game (so you can easily convert adventures from one game to the other). As Laundry staff, you're trained to deal with the weird and ghastly spawn of the Mythos, you're equipped with the best equipment your committee-approved mission budget can buy, and you've got back-up on call from the SAS.

All of that means you're only terrifyingly underprepared, as opposed to completely screwed, when the shoggoth hits the fan.

Some reviews of the Laundry RPG:

"It takes the nihilistic horror of the Cthulhu mythos and makes it into a joke, just so that it can then turn it back around into a nihilistic horror setting once more. God spare England, because Cthulhu won’t."
- rpg.net review
"If you happen to be a fan of Charles Stross’ “Laundry Files” who games, then The Laundry is going to be near perfect for you. If you are a fan of Lovecraftian investigative horror, then The Laundry presents another approach to the genre, one that is more focused, much drier in feel, and with a very much drier wit. Lastly, this is the only RPG of Lovecraftian investigative horror that bothers to discuss a pension plan, so you know The Laundry makes sense."
- Reviews from R'lyeh
"The Laundry is probably the best horror setting I've ever seen. Funny, quirky, and totally dark, there's nothing in the Laundry that's not to like."
- drivethrurpg review

The GAMA trade show is an annual get-together for games manufacturers, distributors and retailers. It all happens in Las Vegas, and just as in previous years Cubicle 7 was in attendance - this year, however, we were co-sponsors for the first time!

Being based in the UK Las Vegas is a long way for us to travel but we find GAMA to be well worth the trip. It's a chance for us to meet face to face with our fellow publishers, distributors and retailers.

Our busy production schedule, and the way the hobby games industry is set up, means we don't always get a chance to communicate as much as we would like with our partners and contemporaries. The GAMA trade show offers precisely that chance, in a dedicated space.

It's not an event we've spoken much about before here on the Cubicle 7 website, but this year we decided to change that with our report about what we got up to at this year's GAMA trade show. What happened in Vegas isn't staying in Vegas!

Do you want to come with me? But if you do I should warn you: you’re going to see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past, aliens from the future, the day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won’t be quiet, it won’t be safe and it won’t be calm, but I tell you what it will be: a trip of a lifetime!” – The Ninth Doctor

10 years ago today, after a hiatus of nearly a decade away from our TV screens, Doctor Who returned with the episode Rose – and started the trip of a lifetime that we’re still embarked upon today! On today’s blog, we thought we’d take a look at the past ten years of Doctor Who, through the lens of our own games and supplements!

WWC Cold War Logo550

Throughout 2015, we're bringing World War Cthulhu to Kickstarter, allowing us to bring our gritty espionage take on Call of Cthulhu to three new eras of the 20th Century. The first of these Kickstarted settings (by popular demand!) will be World War Cthulhu: Cold War, which acts as a natural sequel but stark contrast to World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour.

World War Cthulhu: Cold War is a Call of Cthulhu setting full of thrilling espionage, tense horror and sudden betrayal set at the height of the Cold War in the 1970s. You play spies working for British intelligence, battling both the Soviet and Mythos threat. You are lost in an ocean of treachery, unsure of who to trust, trying against all odds to buy the world one more day…
