I've signed up for a Laundry session at the UK Games Expo, so might look at the bundle of it's still running after payday. Enjoyed the first novel but couldn't get through the second at all, I'm afraid.
I played my first laundry game at the Expo a few years ago, unfortunatly it wasn't much fun. I beileve that was much to do with the circumstances rather than the game itself though. The scenairo was a heavy on the comedy oneshot game which was mostly about bumbling into absurd situations. The group was pretty big and had a number of loud players in it meaning I spent much of the session sitting pretty.
Since then however I have started playing it regularly, running through the prewritten adventures, and it is a lot of fun! There is a lot to the system however, especially the magic, and it has a very different flavour to the usual CoC games. Be advised they've added a lot of rules onto the BRP system.
