People have been predicting the end of the world for centuries… but how many are truly prepared to survive after a collapse of civilization?

Collapse is a deck building card game set in the final months before the end of the world. Each player starts with limited supplies and must compete for food, tools, and weapons, and build fortifications on their home, in order to prepare for harsh post-apocalyptic conditions. The player who earns the longest survival time in months, wins and takes pride knowing he could outlive his neighbors after a collapse of civilization.

Five different world-ending scenarios to choose from as well as an ever-changing marketplace makes each game of Collapse unique and unpredictable. To be successful, players need a healthy mix of strategy and flexibility as available supplies change and events unfold.

So how will you prepare for the impending collapse?

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.

Players start with a Homestead card and very limited currency and food. During their turn, they can use Item cards, buy cards, and store cards based on what comes up in their hand. Currency and item cards used get placed back into the player’s discard pile and can be used again as they come up in a future hand. As Item cards are purchased, Event cards can appear at any time and can have grave impact on gameplay. When supplies become scarce, the game ends and the winner is determined by the total months of survival time collected in his deck. Many different strategies can win the game and a little bit of luck doesn’t hurt either.
