Description:

The world as you know it has ended, but that news won't reach you for another month.

In a month's time you will hear bits and pieces about an accidental nuclear exchange, and the devastation caused by a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse. You will also collect your own stories: the atrocities that happen when the lights stay off, and the small kindnesses that stave off the chaos.

You will be a different person in a month, better in some ways and worse in others, but you will change, just like the rest of the world.

These are things you will know in a month, but tonight you are huddled in a darkened Walmart with the rest of the night shift. The riot is in the height of its fervor, and your only hope is that the looters spend so much time dismantling the barricades that they don't have the energy to beat you to death in aisle nine.

Tonight you will do things that will change you, things that will mold you into a person that can make the choices needed to last one more month as the world falls apart.

THE SPARK is a TURN OF THE CARD game (TurnoftheCard.com) that asks the players to survive the opening days of the apocalypse. Beginners are welcome, characters will be created as part of the game, and rules will be taught.
