Background: So over Christmas, I visited the frosty wilds of western New York, where weekly my old friends get together for Game Night. I'm only up there a few times a year and when I show up during the Christmas Holidays we usually call it "Geekfest" and exchange gifts. Much to my suprise, one of my friends this year gave me an unopened booster box - Call of Cthulhu Collectible Card Game: Eldritch Edition. I've not delved much into the CoC stuff, having observed an RPG game, but I did enjoy SJ Games Munchkin Cthulhu and picked up most of that stuff which IIRC brought last year. I've seen the LCG around, but hadn't pulled the trigger on the game yet (So many darn other ones I still have to play from FFG!). Anyway, rather than jumping in and paying $40 for another game, which most likely won't see that much play, I found a Eldritch Edition Starter deck to get the rules, and a feel for how it plays.
1. How different is the LCG vs. the CCG?
2. Can I use the CCG cards with the LCG (I hope so as I now have 36 unopened boosters waiting to be used)?
3. Is it worth getting the LCG Box set or just use what I've got right now?
Thanks for your help, ideas, etc.
