Geiger Counter

Geiger Counter is a game system for Survival Horror. It was designed to do two things: 1) emulate movies in which most of the main characters eventually die and 2) perform really well in single-session play, such as a pick-up or convention game. This game requires a bunch of six-sided dice. I use about 20-30 dice of one color for the main characters and 8 dice of a different color for the menace. You will also need a large sheet of paper (I often tape six sheets of computer paper together into a giant rectangle), copies of the play sheet included at the end of this booklet, and a small number of unique tokens to represent the major characters. This is a beta version. Playsheets can be found at http://bleedingplay.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/geiger-beta-sheet.pdf
