    Trail of Cthulhu. 3 of my players own the rule book.

    I think Esoterrorists, as it doesn’t require more player research than watching X-Files or CSI.
    Trail appeals to old school gamers, and comes in a close second.

    Interesting poll results (as of 17:29 GMT Nov 29). I wouldn’t have said Ashen Stars was an easy sell. The background is quite complex. Much the same for NBA. I desperately want to run it but thing players will take some time to grasp the concept, even if it does reference recognisable tropes.

    I voted Esoterrorists, as it’s background and setting are easy to explain. As the previous commenter said, just reference X-Files ans CSI and you are away.

    – Neil.
