I T S THE END OF THE WORLD . . . L EVEL UP NOW! This game includes 168 regular cards, 12 square Seal cards, one six-sided die, and these rules. S ETUP Three to six can play. You will need 10 tokens (coins, poker chips, whatever – or any gadget that counts to 10) for each player. Divide the cards into the Door deck, the Treasure deck, and the Seal deck. Shuffle all three decks. Deal four Door cards and four Treasure cards to each player. C ARD M ANAGEMENT Keep separate face-up discard piles for the Door and Treasures decks. (The Seals are never discarded; see p. 3.) You may not look through the discards unless you play a card that allows you to! When a deck runs out, reshuffle its discards. If a deck runs out and there are no discards, nobody can draw any of that kind of card! In Play: These are the cards on the table in front of you, showing your Class (if any) and the Items you are carrying. Disasters with ongoing effects and some other cards also stay on the table after you play them. Your Hand: Cards in your hand are not in play. They don’t help you, but they can’t be taken away ex- cept by cards that specifically affect “your hand.” At the end of your turn, you may have no more than five cards in your hand. When Cards Can Be Played: Each type of card can be played at a specified time (see p. 5). Cards in play may not be returned to your hand – they must be discarded or traded if you want to get rid of them. C HARACTER C REATION Everyone starts as a Level 1 survivor with no class. (Heh, heh.) Look at your initial eight cards. If you have any Class cards, you may (if you like) play one by placing it in front of you. If you have any usable Items (p. 4), you may play them by placing them in front of you. If you have any doubt about whether you should play a card, you could read below, or you could just charge ahead and do it. S TARTING AND F INISHING THE G AME Decide who goes first by any means you can all agree on. Play proceeds in turns, each with several phases (see p. 2). When the first player finishes his turn, the player to his left takes a turn, and so on. C ONFLICTS B ETWEEN C ARDS AND R ULES This rulesheet gives the general rules. Cards may add special rules, so in most cases when the rulesheet disagrees with a card, follow the card. However, ignore any card effect that might seem to contradict one of the rules listed below unless the card explicitly says it supersedes that rule! 1. Nothing can reduce a player below Level 1, although card effects might reduce a player’s or a monster’s combat strength (p. 2) below 1. 2. You go up a level after combat only if you kill a monster. 3. You cannot collect rewards for defeating a monster (e.g., Treasure, levels) in the middle of a combat. You must finish the fight before gaining any rewards.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
