Build Your Own Apocalypse is a GM-less collaborative storytelling game. You decide on the setting. You decide on the characters involved, if any. The story is mainly about the events that bring about the decline and destruction of your setting. The characters you make up won't be able to stop it, but you could tell a story about the villains that make it happen. Build Your Own Apocalypse makes a great lead in for many post-apocalypse games with a mysterious precursor.

The rules for Build Your Own Apocalypse are two pages long. Game play with four people takes 2-3 hours. The game is infinitely re-playable and can be played with children capable of imagination and rolling dice.

Hmm, I took your comment below a bit too literally. I went to record a video for my solo gaming stream and realised very quickly that "pretty much any number of people" wasn't one ;)


You mentioned in the description that this game can be played with four people. Is that the ideal amount? Could I play with more of fewer people or would that screw things up?


Sorry for the delay in responding. Work has kept me away from Itch for a long while. Build Your Own Apocalypse is pretty free form and will work with pretty much any number of people. I just used 4 as an example for how long a session may last.

thank you!
