I have finally completed a post-playtest version of Disaster Strikes!
For anyone who hasn’t been following the designer diaries, Disaster Strikes! is a game modelled on disaster movies. You create a threat, escalate it almost to the point where it is unstoppable, and see who can get out alive. Your small group of Protagonists are the only ones brave, competent and heroic enough to save countless innocent Bystanders from their doom.
The game takes around 4 hours to play, and is “zero prep” which in this case means all the set-up work is done in play, and should take only a small fraction of the total play time. It is not GMless – one of the players will be the Disaster Master (DM), charged with pushing the disaster forward and putting the Protagonists and Bystanders in peril.
Please do share the link to the game, and if you play it I’d be interested to receive any comments you might have.
