This game is awesome! I really like the mechanics of how it plays. It is reminiscent of a Super Nintendo game! This game exceeded my expectation. I ordered both expansions and I recommend them. This game is fun, period.

**TO SUM IT UP:** If you want to romp through a dungeon using a system that distills all the disparate elements of dungeon crawls into a card-flipping, dice-throwing jam done in about 20 minutes, you've found your game.
**WHAT I LIKED THE MOST:** Character upgrade systems. No worries about modifications to armour class, for example... Just increase a character's hits-to-kill.
**WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE OF:** Variable paths to success. I felt like the same characters would be needed to succeed and make it to the end of the game while others really had no chance (I'm looking at you, Bard!). The Wizard seems over-powered, specifically when armed with the staff.
I purchased and played the physical copy of the Card Game, with the PDF instructions printed out and referenced during my first play-through. After a few look-ups in subsequent plays, I could play from start to finish (with games of variable lengths) without needing to refer to the rulesheets.
This game is really cool! Entertaining and challenging, but easy to pick up, it impressively exceeded expectations.
If you're looking to kill a couple hours with an RPG-Lite Cards & Dice table game, this is the one you want to play!
Hope Inhumanity is a gritty apocalyptic game about a group of survivors trying to reach some destination.
Players can invest as much as they want in story and character, making it a good gateway to new roleplayers.
The game is played out over 5 rounds of randomly drawn Scene cards that present players with difficult situations.
Each player can spend from their limited d6 "Humanity" dice pool to succeed or fail at each scene. You can also pull
from a community pool of "Hope" dice to overcome the odds in the face of danger from killers and thieves...
Failure normally means suffering Hunger or Harm, conditions which act sort of like 'hit points' and also add
difficulty to future scenes. The essence of the game is stri...

I've played through this fantastic little game about six times now - albeit some sessions lasted longer than others because it is DEADLY! It offers exactly what I hoped it would - an easy to manage, admin light, solo role playing experience. I'm a big fan of the 'Micro Chapbook' line as it scratches an itch I have for ttrpgs which require little set up time and can be easily transported for gaming 'on the road'. The card game version captures the essence of the core rules very well but makes the whole experience even more streamlined. I absolutely love the b/w artwork which adds to the game's OSR feel. I purchased the pnp version so do be prepared for some production time as you'll need to cut out and fold the cards. Once all that is done it's very easy to get up and running with a game as the rule book is coherant and easy to follow.
One word of warning: be prepared to die and die often! This game will suit you, if like me, you're a &...
