Fend off zombies as young Scouts in Kids on Bikes-powered tabletop RPG Junior Braves Survival Guide to the Apocalypse

A breath of flesh air.

Popular kids’ horror comic book series Junior Braves of the Apocalypse is getting a tabletop adaptation, powered by RPG Kids on Bikes.

Titled Junior Braves Survival Guide to the Apocalypse, the tabletop RPG follows a group of young Scouts who return from a week-long camping trip to find that the zombie apocalypse is happening.

Your families are missing, the undead roam the streets and help is definitely not on the way. You’ll have to do everything from exploring abandoned buildings to fending off rabid squirrels in order to survive.

Based on the comics by Greg Smith, Michael Tanner and Zach Lehner, the upcoming tabletop RPG features the tools that players need to create their own world (and even their own apocalypse) and build tense adventures that require plentiful cooperation between the kid characters to overcome.

Junior Braves Survival Guide to the Apocalypse RPG runs on the same ruleset used in storytelling RPG Kids on Bikes, in which players take on the roles of ordinary kids set on solving strange mysteries in their local town - not unlike Netflix TV series Stranger Things.

The RPG will be released by publisher Renegade Game Studios, which is also behind upcoming board game the cacti-wrangling Succulent, fantasy RPG-themed card game Bargain Quest and co-op board game Power Rangers: Heroes of the Grid, as well as the Kids on Bikes tabletop RPG.

Junior Braves Survival Guide to the Apocalypse RPG is slated for release this spring 2020 and will cost $24.99 (£20).
