Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game (formerly the Call of Cthulhu Collectible Card Game) is produced and marketed by Fantasy Flight Games. It is based on the fiction of the Cthulhu Mythos, primarily the writings of H. P. Lovecraft and Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu role-playing game. The Call of Cthulhu CCG was the successor to an earlier CCG, Chaosium's Mythos, also based on the Cthulhu Mythos. In 2008, Fantasy Flight moved the game over to its Living Card Game (LCG) format, which retains the deck-building aspect of collectible card games, but without the random distribution.
It shares art and characters with FFG's other Cthulhu Mythos product Arkham Horror.

“Mothers are not the nameless, faceless stereotypes who appear once a year on a greeting card with their virtues set to prose, but women who have been dealt a hand for life and play each card one at a time the best way they know how. No mother is all good or all bad, all laughing or all serious, all loving or all angry. Ambivalence rushes through their veins.”
—Erma Bombeck (20th century)
“O curse of marriage,
That we can call these delicate creatures ours
And not their appetites!”
