Plague: Moss and John
(2019)

Death Derby
A Post-apocalyptic Card Game
(2019)
 


Win the race. Kill your opponent.
Whatever works.

The year is 2200 and survivors of man-made and natural disasters struggle to live in a world poisoned and devastated beyond recognition. The new extreme sport and source of income for many are Death Derby races in which competitors vie for the win or just to survive.

Death Derby features random courses formed from 15 track sections, 12 vehicles that can be upgraded with 37 different modifications, and 40 action cards that can influence the outcome in multiple ways.

Be the first to finish the race or the last one standing as you try to out think, out race, and out shoot your opponents. Modify your vehicle into a death machine or speed demon to survive while hampering everyone's efforts with well timed action cards.

Can be played in a group from a single deck or a single modified deck, or you can modify your own to take on someone else's.

One 10-sided die, tokens, and pen and paper are needed to play.

Core Rules and Post-apocalyptic Time Period & expansion material
A century of change has transformed society. Airborne Ebola and panic killed 300 million from 2031-32, the Greenland ice sheet collapsed in 2080, and Erebus hit Antarctica in 2115, melting the ice cap. A nuclear war for resource control ended in 2126 with every country in the world devastated by environmental and man made horrors. Governments fell as the population plunged and survivors turned to a sustenance, scavenger, or cannibal lifestyle. Gold dust, gained through hard work or blood, becomes the only thing that will buy what a person needs. Unknown to those descending into it, this dark time will last 200 years and end in more war.

The Last Stop
(2012)


Drim and Regis think life in a country ruled by an insane, father murdering king had reached deplorable levels, and then they know it has when they attract enough attention for the king to ask favors.

Eyes welcomed the chance to finally escape the colony ship that had been the Protectors home for centuries, but he didn't plan on being dumped off like a criminal thanks to the outcome of a long fought power struggle he'd got distracted from.

One-Who-Pushes-Buttons-Quickly of the Blue Line Hive couldn't believe his luck. One random find propelled him from his Water Node on Sol 3 to taking part in a mission to absorb the remaining examples of mankind and lay the foundation for a new refueling station.

None knew it would be The Last Stop for each of their cultures.
