As a result of a comment made on this list http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/150678/games-to-play-b..., as well as the forth coming end of the world I thought this is a good time to ask a question that has been asked before, what apocalyptic or post apocalyptic games are there.

A classic for its wild mutations, high tech and sentient plants; be aware that there are many editions of Gamma World, all of them very different from one another.

Unsurprisingly, Call of Cthulhu (2nd - 6th Edition) has several supplements about the end of the world (well, the end of humanity anyhow). This may well be the rarest one.

For the D&D fans, this is the classic post-apocalype setting. After powerful magics turn much of the land to desert, many societies struggle to survive, turning to slavery (or worse).

Based on Harlan Ellison's short story about a super-computer that becomes sentient and wipes out all humanity save 5 people that it keeps alive and tortures for over 100 years. It doesn't get much more crushingly apocalyptic than I Have No Mouth. The game itself is merely okay but the underlying narrative is what makes it worth experiencing.

Raid & Trade - a post apocalyptic game of negotiation and resource management for 3-5 players. From the ashes of a devastating third World War, a precious few golden cities emerge offering hope to those who struggle for survival in the wastelands. Players explore the ruins of the modern world completing quests, honing their skills and maneuvering for social status in order to claim a precious spot as a citizen with a Golden City.

To enter the golden city you must:
•Become an expert: Reach 20 skill points.
•Serve the city: Fulfill three secret quests.
•Become a nobleman: Get the most possible character points.

In each turn, the players can spend action points to do several actions such as moving through the city, raiding buildings, attacking other players, and more. Each player has a specific skill — mechanic, trader, electrician, bodyguard and medic — and has his own unique items to build; those items can be traded off against other items or resources.

Now Live on Kickstarter Link: www.The5th.Land

A post apocalyptic War & Resources game, set after the polar ice caps melted and the oceans drowned our cities...


"...it's the year 2099.

The polar ice caps melted 10 years ago, resulting in a rapid increase in the world's sea level.
Cities drowned, the world's plains turned into lakes, mountains became islands.
Whole populations were wiped out.
The food shortage brought the wars...

Now we are all divided into 6 main alliances, where each one fights for the last remaining pieces of land.
Each one struggles to reach the pivotal point and control... The 5th Land"

A new post apocalyptic board game, up on Kickstarter! Already funded with a lot of days left, ends on Fri, Apr 24 2015 11:50 PM CET. Check it out

Quote:
In Posthuman you play as one of the last human survivors in a world where nature is reclaiming the planet and our mutated offspring are working to eradicate us. Will you resist mutation and survive, or give in to the inevitable and join the mutants?

In the game, players start off as humans on a solitary journey to a rumored fortress harbouring a community of humans. To reach the fortress the players need to complete ten zones successfully. These zones are found on tiles of varying terrain that are drawn by the players as they explore the world. On their travels the players have the opportunity to meet other human players to trade items and use beneficial skills on each other. They will also encounter randomly drawn mutant adversaries and be assailed by players who have switched to the mutant side. Encounters with mutants may inflict scars, and the more scars players have, the closer they will be to mutating and switching sides. Will they strive to cling to their humanity and make a run for the fortress, thus winning the game? Or will they give in to the ever more tempting mutation, join the mutants, and deny the win from the rest of the humans?
