A horror game for two players. 

This is your home town at the end of the world, and it is empty, and the two of you are alone, except for the hunter. 

As you walk around the streets, picking through the rubble for supplies, 

The hunters have heavy footsteps. 

The hunters have caught everyone else. 

You and your partner have refused to die. 

You pick through the scraps of a life you hardly remember, gathering what you need from it to survive. 

The hunters don’t need stuff to survive.

The hunters have everything they need to hurt you. 

One of you hasn't been home in years. One of you never left. 

You’re both afraid, but you have each other.

You can listen to an actual play of this game on Follow The Leader, or watch a streamed version on QueersGuild here.

The cards can be found here
options for replacing the tower for digital play are discussed here.
In the game that Follow the Leader played, they rolled 1d20 for each pull, and 2d20 when a pull needed to be fast, with rolling the same number 3 total times ending the game like a fallen tower.

My partner and I played this game tonight and, yes.... it is so much fun and suspenseful, and a unique experience from any game I've played before. Thanks. She said, "It's a GREAT two player game." (even better with wine).

P.S. I picked it up in the Bundle for Ukraine... thanks for including it there.

Thanks so much for letting me know you enjoyed it! <3

For the block tower do you just mean a jenga tower? If so, do we use all the blocks included in the jenga or a specific amount?

Hi! Yes a jenga tower, but I said tumbling tower because jenga is a brand and the brand doesn't matter 😂

And yep all the blocks unless you want to challenge yourself. I personally use them all and allow myself to stabilise the tower to compensate for my essential tremor, so whatever works best for you is what's best for the story. :)

Really looking forward to playing this one!

Thank you! I hope you enjoy it!

Hi there! Just got the pdf and the hyperlinks don't seem to be working? I was curious which links could simulate the block tower online and the deck for multiplaye

(+1)

I found this for the Deck. https://playingcards.io/game/standard-deck

But am still looking for a block tower Online option

(+2)

Apologies for that! playingcards.io can be used for the deck, and for simulating the tower you can roll a d20 each time you would pull a block (or 2d20 if the game suggests pulling quickly to add risk) and if a number comes up 3 times that counts as the tower falling. Thanks for letting me know about the links! I'll pop them in the game's description later tonight
