Our Last Best Hope is a game about a crew of people on a mission to save Humanity from a terrible Crisis.

Our Last Best Hope is tabletop roleplaying game for three (3) to five (5) players that takes about two hours to play. During the game, you and your friends will play through a classic disaster movie, like Sunshine, Deep Impact, The Core, or Armageddon, where your characters are the stars. Each game is unique, as your group confronts a new Crisis with a new set of characters and a new plan to save the Earth.

While playing Our Last Best Hope, you might:

…launch into space to stop a meteor from destroying all life on Earth.

…drill to the center of the Earth to restart its molten core.

…navigate zombie filled cities to stop a nuclear holocaust.

Regardless of the Crisis, you, and your crew, are our last best hope. 

Our Last Best Hope does not require a GM, nor is there any preptime required before the game starts. Inspired by roleplaying classics like Fiasco and Polaris, Our Last Best Hope is designed to be played as a one-shot epic game that will leave your gaming group with incredible stories.

[…] Our Last Best Hope is taking a movie like Armageddon, Deep Impact, or World War Z and converting it into a GM-free RPG.  Reading through the 135 page PDF, I liked the cleanliness of the layout although I could’ve done without the huge emphasized silhouettes of Team Fortress 2-shaped people. I say poorly emphasized because, for example, on pg. 37 a guy holding a gun up near his heads in both of his hands appears at a quick glance to have something horribly wrong coming out of the back of his head.
