Arkham Horror is often said to be great at telling a narrative during gameplay. I was wondering if this is true of Call of Cthulhu card game.

Does it feel like a story is unfolding during play along the lines of Arkham Horror?

Do mechanics make good thematic analogy or feel more abstract?

I would say the mechanics are more abstract. But the artwork is great!

I agree with Ulrich. Not much of a story is happening, but there's a lot of fun tactical positioning for the story resolutions.
