As the Fire Dies is a 72 player Megagame set in a fictional past where those few surviving members of the human race face the dying, dark days of a nuclear winter. The world is cold and unforgiving, and lights are beginning to dim...

About the Game

As the Fire Dies is a game of communal survival and politics in a dark, unforgiving world. Players represent community leaders in a small colony, facing the dark oppression of a fictional nuclear winter which engulfed the world following a catastrophic end to World War 2.

As the days and weeks tick by, players work together as a combined community trying to weather the 'end of the world'.

Players in the game will come face to face with strategic and operational decisions, resource management, worker placement, negotiation, diplomacy, and the mechanisms of a democratic system of governance.

The ultimate goal of the game - to survive.

About the Event

Prior to the event, players will be provided pre-game materials via email. This information will also be avaialble on social media, and usually involves rulebooks and team information.

As the Fire Dies is a day-long event, starting at 9am. The event involves a pre-game briefing, a full day game which will last from 7 to 8 hours, a post-game debriefing (usually an hour), and often an 'afterparty' at a local pub.

There are no breaks during the day, nor are there part-time or casual tickets - players are expected to remain in the play venue, part of the game, for the entirety of the event.

The event is not catered, however some light afternoon snacks and drinks are provided as part of the ticket price. In addition, a pizza-lunch can be pre-ordered as a ticket add-on ($5.50 per pizza).

Players are also encouraged to bring their own snacks, drinks and lunch if they don't wish to order pizza.

Ticket Types

Tickets are split into teams, each with 3 players. While As the Fire Dies is a cooperative experience, those players on a single team are particularly bonded to one another when it comes to action and decision making in the game.

Each team has an identity (from Academics to Survivalists) which will not only inform the teams' ideals in the game, but also define their role in the game. Special abilities, actions and rules associated with different teams will be discovered in pre-game materials and also during the game itself.

Ticket Prices

The Sydney Megagamers are a non-profit group of volunteers who design, test and facilitate Megagames. All funds associated with ticketing to our events are used for venue hire, production costs (both 2D and 3D printing, props), afternoon tea, refreshments. In addition, a percentage of ticketing prices go to Eventbrite as payment for the ticketing system.

About Megagames

Megagames are large, live action games played out with dozens (or possibly hundreds) of real life players. Our events tie together roleplaying, board gaming, strategy and political simulation.

On game day, players gather at a single location and, using the materials provided (rules, briefings, stationary, maps, cards, tokens, etc) play out the scenario on hand. The themes of past games have varied greatly - from futuristic political dramas to swashbuckling pirate adventures. As the Fire Dies is a post-apocalyptic community survival game.

Other players, called Moderators, enforce the rules and present pre-planned scenarios to the players during the event.

The Sydney Megagamers have operating in Sydney since May 2014.

As the Fire Dies is our fifth Megagame.
