Sadly I was pretty disapointed with this product, for the front inserts do not go together at all they are simply 6 completely different images recycled from other A!C products. The screen insterts were ok I guess, they weren't overly helpful and a bit wasteful. The Call of Cthulhu one has 6 pages, while the Savage World has a whoping 8.

Savage Worlds Screen

  1. The first insert is a overview for character creation.
  2. The second a overview of aerial combat and a small listing of general combat rules and which page they're on in the SW book.
  3. All about how to learn and using magic mechanically for SW.
  4. An overview of how Sanity, Dementia and Horror work mechanically (Which was the most helpful part for SW).
  5. Two tables for rolling Horror and Terror effects.
  6. A tbale for various shell shock events, a encouter table and some stuff on aeriel bombing.
  7. This page is six tables of different weapons for SW.
  8. The final page is taken up entirely by a table of German ranks and their Allied counter parts (Something I don't think necessarily required an entire page on a GM screen)

Call of Cthulhu Screen

  1. The first insert is a overview for character creation.
  2. The second a overview of aerial combat and a small listing of general combat rules and which page they're on in the CoC6 book.
  3. This page is about mass combat and some encouter tables (Both of which are good).
  4. A list of all the new wartime skills and four lists of rules and their page number (Kinda helpful I guess)
  5. The fifth page is six tables of different weapons for CoC.
  6. The sixth page for CoC and the eighth page for SW are identical: They are taken up entirely by a table of German ranks and their Allied counter parts (Something I don't think necessarily required an entire page on a GM screen)

I think I was expecting something a bit more useful because I had hoped to just use the screen as is, but instead I've had to combine select pages from this and both Savage Worlds screen supplements to get something concise out of it. I think what bothered me most was the listing of rules pages instead of a quick summery of the rules, I wanted a screen I could glance at and have everything at my fingertips instead of glance at a list and having to flick through a book to find that rule.
