I'm a big fan of post apocalyptic sci fi films and books. So I want a game that is something along the lines of this.

The start of an post apocalyptic survival where you are in charge of creating a defense base/house. And you are competing against other players to survive the longest. Either you kill off the other players/take over their bases.

I know that their are a lot of games out there that are in the area of post apocalyptic games but they are usually co-op or semi co-op. I just wanna destroy people in a post apocalyptic world.

amen brother.

I have no idea how many are out there, the only thing coming to mind is 51st state and I have no idea if its close its just a game that I've seen the bgg page and I want to play. But whatever's out there doesn't matter, more should be made.

As someone who loves to design games, the answer for me for the second question is...

Either way, yes!

The New Era might be good thematic example, but it is more economic than skirmish game.

It's not in the theme you're looking for, and it's not directly PvP, but Dungeon Lords has the "building a base" and "surviving the longest" kind of thing.

Well (on a continental scale) After the Holocaust might fit the bill.

Zombie Survival: The Board Game? It has some of the elements you are looking for and is worth a look for ideas at least.

I want to build a base, raiding buildings for survivors and items, then raid and kill other players. This town ain't big enough for the both of us. We survive and you die.

I want to play this game but I want to know if their are other games like it so if there aren't then I want to make it. I hate risk but I like the feeling of. I just wiped you off of the map and out of the game. Peace! I want that feeling back!

I honestly would design this game/put it in my docket as the game that I am currently working on is in the blind testing phase. Although right now my partner, who is my SO, and I work on games together so in the list of games that we want to make it might be somewhere in the middle. Plus this the idea of this game might have a higher designer skill than we currently have so it might not be fun for us to make, which is kind of why we design. Fun to design fun to play.

I have a friend with a copy we need to get on the table.

Looks like a bigger scale version of what your looking for.

City of Remnants has many of these elements.
