The Bite

Selected Option:
Suggested Price $5.00


You slam the door closed, your partner barely making it through behind you. You can still feel their hands grabbing at your clothes; hear their moans echoing through the halls. The occasional thumping at the door reminds you that you are still trapped, even when you’ve run away. You won’t sleep tonight. Hell, you haven’t really slept in days, but you can try to ignore it for now. As you settle in with your companion, locked away safely in this small room, the doubts begin to enter your thoughts:

What if they’ve been bitten?

The Bite is a storytelling game about the decision to kill your companion who may, or may not be, infected by a zombie bite. Both players do not want to die, but both know that leaving a bite victim alive will result in death. To stall for time before making the dreaded decision, the two players will share stories about themselves.

Players do not know if their companion has been bitten, but must choose how to deal with the possibilty their partner may turn on them. By playing conversation cards, players delay the decision to kill their companion, and hope that the resulting stories that are shared will disuade their partner from turning on them.

Wow, this is such a great game!! Me and my friend played this today and had an amazing time. I strongly recommend this to those who enjoy mental pain while playing rpg(in a good way, of course. You shouldn't be in real pain while playing rpg). It would have been better if it had more conversation cards in it. If you publish a supplement that includes more cards, I will buy it for sure.

This game looks mighty interesting for sure! I'm interested in getting the Print on Demand cards sometime as I like all the print jobs I've received from this site thus far. However, I'm confused by the Pay What You Want model for Print on Demand items such as this. This is probably a silly question, but I see the suggested price is 5 dollars...I understand I would have to pay shipping in addition to that, but is five dollars plus shipping enough to truly cover a POD of this product?

Thanks in advance.

quick question after reading through the rules and the cards. It isn't totally clear to me what to do with the two facedown cards from the beginning set up. Are they effectively out of play so it is possible that at the end of the game no one has the XXX card?

Hi, I'm way late to this one, but yes, those cards are out of play to create the chance that the "Bitten" card could not even be in play at all.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
