  • Bully Pulpit Games Desperation


Excl. tax

Two games of survival horror, often without the survival.

In stock


Desperation is two small roleplaying games that are truly pick-up-and-play experiences for you and your friends.

You'll experience gothic storytelling steeped in actual history: Dead House and The Isabel are dark, lyrical games about people pushed far past their limits.

Desperation asks you to assume an unusual point of view—instead of deciding what people say and do, you decide who says and does the things that must happen. The sense of dread is palpable with each card reveal, because in these games, the things that must happen are a gradually escalating kaleidoscope of unimaginable horror.

If you like card-based roleplaying games like For the Queen and The Quiet Year but have a dark and unmerciful heart, you’ll love Desperation.
