Race to the Bottom

Evin Donohoe


I love running massive games of Trouble Brewing with the Doomsayer when the venue's about to shut and we need to race through it super quick. It's revelation stacked on revelation, hasty decisions, and tonnes of laughter.

Race to the Bottom seeks to recreate that feeling, writ small. Run it with the Fabled roles of the Doomsayer and the Sentinel, and avoid the Toymaker. Most games will end on day one - short, sharp, and sweet sessions with sudden deaths, big plays, and some even bigger (and hilarious) mistakes. It's the spiritual opposite of a Leviathan game.
