Face madness and corruption... alone! Cthulhu Confidential is an investigative pen & paper role playing game, which is easy to learn and does not require much preparation time, e.g. for character creation etc. It is designed for one player and one Gamemaster to create together a thrilling narrative that evokes the classic solo protagonist mystery format.
The game is based on the writings of H.P. Lovecraft and is set during the historical 1930s (think hardboiled detective stories in the vein of Raymond Chandler with the mind-blasting Cthulhu Mythos in the background). The player is required to uncover clues in order to solve a mystery. The rules eliminate most of the randomness of other RPGs (i.e. die rolls) for an intensely atmospheric experience.
I would like to put together a group of 3 or 4 players for future rounds of Trail of Cthulhu, which has similar rules to Cthulhu Confidential and the same narrative approach. A one-shot scenario of Cthulhu Confidential One2One can be played within a timeframe of 4-6 hours and is ideal to find out how the game mechanic works.
If you've got any questions or you would like to give either Cthulhu Confidential or Trail of Cthulhu a go, but you cannot participate on the given date, just drop me a line to let me know you are interested.

Neuroshima Hex is a tactical board game set in an post-apocalyptic world. Each player leads one of four armies. The game board resembles an area and players successively place tiles until a combat starts. To win you need to destroy your opponents' headquarter. Due to tile-drafting there is a factor of randomness involved, but Neuroshima Hex also shares some features with chess. The rules become intuitive after a few rounds and the game is rather easy to learn.
A single game can be played in roughly 30 minutes.
Language at the table is German and/or English, the game itself is language neutral.
