Description Edit | History

As indicated on the back of the book:

This is the primary rulebook for Our Last Best Hope, a single session tabletop roleplaying game for three 3-5 players that takes about 2-3 hours to play. Our Last Best Hope is a game about a crew of people on a mission to save Humanity from a terrible Crisis. During the game, participants will play through a classic disaster movie, like Sunshine, Deep Impact, The Core, or Armageddon, where their characters are the stars. Each game is unique, comprising a new Crisis with a new set of characters and a new plan to save the Earth.

Example story lines from a session of Our Last Best Hope include:

...launching into space to stop a meteor from destroying all life on Earth.
...drilling to the center of the Earth to restart its molten core.
...navigating zombie filled cities to stop a nuclear holocaust.

Regardless of the Crisis, the characters played by the participants represent the last best hope for averting disaster.

Our Last Best Hope does not require a GM, nor is there any preptime required before the game starts. The game has is inspired by roleplaying classics like Fiasco and Polaris.

1 Our Last Best Hope Character Cards
I tried to play OLBH for the first time last weekend with some people who have never played an RPG before. While the rules of the game are very simple, I found that the group had difficulty remembering when each character card could be played (and what benefit they provided). So I went ahead and created some cards and a name tag for each player. Print these out and use them instead of the note cards suggested by the book.
