#RPGaDAY 2017: Day 5

Question 5: Which RPG cover best captures the spirit of the game.

Setting aside all the tv/movie tie-in games where they can’t really go wrong with the covers (Doctor Who, James Bond, Star Trek), most covers haven’t made much of an impression over the years.

I guess the following would be high on any list:

Call of Cthulhu 1st edition. There’s a spooky house, it’s night, you’re woefully ill-equipped for the task at hand.


Cyberpunk 2020. Rain. Neon. Sleaze. All it really needs is someone with a digital clock in the side of their neck.

Cyberpunk2020 2

Runequest 1st edition. A giant lizard thing will attack you.


Special mention: Dragonroar. Not sure if I actually played this game but there’s an enormous hedgehog with a battle axe on the cover.
