“Collapse” – The post-apocalyptic card game

While I’ll be the first to agree that the end of the world will not be all sunshine-n-stun-grenades, the fantasy apocalyptic worlds can be entertaining.

Collapse is a deck building card game for 2-4 players set in the final months before the end of the world. Players can choose to play one of four world-ending Collapse scenarios, including: financial, biological, natural, or nuclear; or they can play at random where any combination of events may occur.

When playing Collapse, you will need to stock up on supplies such as food and weapons, as well as build fortifications on your home to earn months of survival time. Just remember, time is running out, and you and your neighbors are competing for the same resources. If you are going to survive, you will need a healthy mix of strategy and flexibility as available supplies change and events unfold.

Kind of amusing.

I’m still working on a bunch of back-end stuff here at the blog so more ‘substantive’ posting is slowed down. I do appreciate everyone hanging around while I get this sussed out, though.

  1. Has nothing to do with the post, but I have always wondered where your page header images come from. Those pieces of magnificent destruction / desolation are chilling, but amazing at the same time.

    • I get more email about that than anything else. Theyre just various wallpapers and desktops I find on image searches and then I trim them down to fit.

    • Several are from post-apocalyptic video games: The Last of Us, Fallout 3, Half-Life 2 – and I think one might be from Wasteland 2.

  2. That’s a neat kickstarter. I think their price points are a bit weird/off, though. I’d rather have more swag than survival food? Name a card after me for $300, Use my ‘dream homestead’ as a homestead graphic, make something a bit more personal for the investor…don’t send me stuff I most likely already have 🙂
    I’ll watch this one and may even drop some coin after some more research.

  3. You’ve stumbled across one of my personal obsessions, board/card games. A “deckbuilder” already out on the market you might want to check out is Arctic Scavengers. In it, Earth’s climate has shifted for whatever reason and now each player controls a tribe fighting over the limited resources left. Check out boardgamegeek.com sometime if you are at all (probably not) interested in modern board games.

  4. Since when does administrator replace Commander Zero, this must be a government site now! :-]
    really glad that you are back- Chris
