Four single friends gather on Valentine’s Day for a bro-night. Too bad visitors from outer space have other plans.

The reason that everyone should listen to this is when Angela plays my character’s sister. Seriously, that was some next-level storytelling/character acting.
I don’t want to so l it, but Delucos reaction to the destruction of ********** made laugh till I cried
I firmly believe that Kevin’s sister made it out of every end of the world scenario so far with her kids, husband, and go bag full of barbies in tow.
His mother made it out too, but that was mostly out of being too stubborn to die.
Just wondering, do you guys recreate the characters each time with different stats? Or reuse exactly the same characters? Or are they ‘levelled up’ after each game so you are playing slightly more advanced characters each time?
@Jamas – They’re the exact same characters every time. I offered to let them tweak early on, but they’re pretty committed to playing the same unlucky bastards episode after episode, with some cosmetic tweaks here or there (in the Cthulhu episode, David’s character is an industrial artist, rather than union worker, for example).
The system doesn’t have much built in for advancement; it’s not designed for traditional campaign play. If the characters seem to be doing better as the game goes on, it’s because I’m getting a better handle on the system and giving them more positive dice to outweigh the crippling inability of these guys to do much of anything.
*spoiler for this session*
David, when I heard “WTF Space!?” I thought, “I have to write and compliment David. That was simple, pure comic perfection”
I was wrong.
Angela holding onto it and using it for the phone conversation, that was perfection.
