The concept of the game is similar to some of the party games you may have played before, but the End of the World Card Game adds a new twist... an apocalyptic twist.
Unlike trying to survive a legit apocalypse, this card game is pretty simple. Each round, the round leader reads a survival scenario from a red "Survival" card, and everyone else answers with their best white card which we call "Provision" cards.
Our launch edition is based on the "Zombie Apocalypse." The scenarios we've come up with are designed to match perfectly with our over-the-top provision cards. We promise that if you're not rolling on the floor laughing after 5 minutes, you're probably much better people than we are.
Great news! Professionally printed sets are currently in production and the first shipment is expected to arrive in February 2014.
Sets will be available exclusively on Amazon as soon as they arrive from our printing factory. They’ll be priced at $25, with Amazon Prime members receiving free 2 day shipping.
While the free downloaded version includes 520 cards, the printed sets will include 560 cards for your playing pleasure. This includes 10 extra subject cards and 30 extra provision cards.
To see the game first and download the current free version, go right ahead. The link to the PDF is below, just next to your right hand, or as we call it around our office... “The Stranger”

All in all you can expect to spend about $10, unless you have to buy ridiculously overpriced ink as well. Then you’re just SOL.

+ How do I play?
Start by reading the directions. In all seriousness, this game is pretty simple and in the traditional form, requires “survivors” to submit what they deem is the most appropriate/awful answer to the red survival questions. If your answer is deemed best, you win the red survival card, and the owner of the most survival cards at the end of the game wins.
+ How do I get more cards? Will there be any expansion sets?
In short, yes, the fun will continue. However, instead of adding more survival and provision cards (and without revealing too much), there is more than one way for the world to end. Stay tuned for additional awesomeness.
+ This game is a lot like some of the other cards games I’ve played. What makes this one unique?
This game is unique in a couple of ways. Beyond the apocalyptic undertones, the game also features several unique forms of play. These include Traditional, Mission(ary) Style, and Ration modes, with each style of play requiring different strategy and varying degrees of crass.
+ How do I purchase the End of the World Card Game?
The End of the World Card Game will be available exclusively through Amazon in mid 2014. Stay tuned for updates. In the mean time, please print and share the game with all your wonderfully politically incorrect friends and enjoy the epicness that is our game.
+ I’m offended by this game, how do you sleep at night?
Like a damn baby.
