Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game, the first game in this series, puts 2-5
players in a small, weakened colony of survivors in a world where most of
humanity is either dead or diseased, flesh-craving monsters. Each player leads
a faction of survivors with dozens of different characters in the game. Dead
of Winter is a meta-cooperative psychological survival game. This means
players are working together toward one common victory condition - but for
each individual player to achieve victory, he must also complete his personal
secret objective. This secret objective could relate to a psychological tick
that's fairly harmless to most others in the colony, a dangerous obsession
that could put the main objective at risk, a desire for sabotage of the main
mission, or (worst of all) vengeance against the colony! Certain games could
end with all players winning, some winning and some losing, or all players
losing. Work toward the group's goal, but don't get walked all over by a
loudmouth who's looking out only for his own interests! Dead of Winter is an
experience that can be accomplished only through the medium of tabletop games.
It's a story-centric game about surviving through a harsh winter in an
apocalyptic world. The survivors are all dealing with their own psychological
imperatives, but must still find a way to work together to fight off outside
threats, resolve crises, find food and supplies and keep the colony's morale
up. Dead of Winter has players making frequent, difficult, heavily- thematic,
wildly-varying decisions that often have them deciding between what is best
for the colony and what is best for themselves.
