Somewhere on a doomed and distant planet, life has emerged, competing for supremacy until the world’s inevitable destruction. That’s the premise of Doomlings. A lightweight card game for 2-6 players, Doomlings can be played casually amongst friends, or competitively by the gaming enthusiast family. Because there are no duplicate cards, and Age cards are chosen randomly, no two games are ever the same. While the game itself can be learned in 5 minutes or less, don’t be fooled: with over 100 unique cards, there are countless combinations of play to be discovered. 

The object of the game is to score the most points by the time the world ends. You score points by playing Traits for your Doomlings’ species, making them more adaptable, resilient, and mischievous. As your Doomlings assert their dominance, Catastrophes will befall the planet, causing setbacks for each competing species. When the third Catastrophe inevitably strikes, the world ends, and the Doomlings with the most points gets to declare themselves winner. 

A typical game takes between 20-45 minutes, depending on the number of players and sequence of events. Advanced-play expansion packs are also available. The only thing in Doomlings that is certain is that it’s a delight.
