Plague: Moss and John
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07V4MK8SR
by Jeremiah Donaldson
https://www.ephiroll.com

Contains: Plague, John's Story (from Plague: Aftermath), and Escape (from Plague: Ruination)

An unseen traveler lurked within flight 308 to Paris, France. A traveler that infected everyone aboard and raced across the world while those in charge of its containment denied the real danger. Few escaped the carnage, fewer left any record. Moss Valley was one of them.

Original trailer produced in Nov, 2013 for Plague: Original Cut, updated for Plague: Moss and John.

The farce about people you've already met.

Ava has found a charming, smart, and, one day, rich man she wants that has a big problem: his useless brother Wesley that his father wants rid of. But before anyone would take him, he has to be whipped into shape, and Ava knows just the woman for the job in this farce that would make Shakespeare laugh in his grave.

Nature's Rage on The Game Crafter: https://www.thegamecrafter.com/games/death-derby:-nature-s-rage-expansion

Win the race. Kill your opponent. Whatever works.

The year is 2200 and survivors of man-made and natural disasters struggle to live in a world that has been poisoned and devastated beyond recognition. The new extreme sport and source of income for many are Death Derby races in which competitors vie to win or just to survive.

Death Derby features random courses formed from 15 track sections, 12 vehicles that can be upgraded with 37 different modifications, and 40 action cards that can influence the outcome in multiple ways.

Be the first to finish the race or the last one standing as you try to out think, out race, and out shoot your opponents. Modify your vehicle into a death machine or speed demon to survive while hampering everyone's efforts with well timed action cards.

Can be played in a group from a single deck or a single modified deck, or you can modify your own to take on someone else's.

One 10-sided die, tokens, and pen and paper are needed to play.

Death Derby brief design history republished from my Youtube channel. First published 11.24.18. Covers the Death Derby design history up until production art was started in November 2018 (finished in April of 2019). Another history video will be done in 2020 to cover through to the first expansions and the stopping point that is the mark 2 design.
