I've really grown to love Call of Cthulhu. I enjoy the game more than enough to buy the core rulebook from Chaosium. I held off from buying the 6th edition rulebook because back in February word spread that there would be a 7th Edition which would be available at Gen Con this year.
According to what I've been reading lately it seems that that will no longer be the case. Rumors say that 7th Edition will be pushed back to 2012, but that there will be an Anniversary Edition available. To celebrate 30 years of Call of Cthulhu Chaosium has decided to release a hard cover 320 page leather bound book... but with the 6th edition rules.
I'm really torn here. On the one hand I'd like to get the new rules (though with CoC there are very few changes between editions), but on the other hand I really like well made hard cover books and am willing to pay extra for quality. Those who aren't interested in paying a premium probably won't be interested as this book costs $64.95.
I think this is all going to come down to whether the book is available at Gen Con or not. I'm going to want to get myself something cool at the Con, and a leather bound Call of Cthulhu book certainly qualifies.
