A BOARD GAME
Outrun The Bear
20-45 MINUTES, 2-6 PLAYERS, ages 11+
Sometimes you don’t have to OUTRUN THE BEAR… you just have to outrun your friends.
You’ll play against up to five friends as you manage your cards in a race for your lives.
Start at the campsite, and use action cards to make it all the way to the parking lot and the safety of the car (while helping or sabotaging your friends’ progress). Careful… you never know who has the CAR KEYS!
The game ends when all runners have either made it to the parking lot or have been eaten by the bear. So try to keep at least one friend between you and the bear at all times, and maybe you will manage to OUTRUN THE BEAR!

A peaceful walk in the woods…
…interrupted by a hungry bear!
WATCH YOUR STEP!
Whether it’s a slope that slides you back or a river that wears you out, this beautiful campground is full of terrain that can be a boon or a hindrance. A careless run could cost you your life.
FRIEND AND FOE?
As you run for your life, there will be opportunities for you to help or harm your other runners. Will you feed them to the bear for a better shot at your own survival, or try to survive together?
ACT, REACT, EQUIP
To facilitate your race, you’ll manage a hand of cards which represent ideas, items, and equipment that could help you make it to the safety of the car. Drew a card that won’t help right now? Toss it to gain some ground!

Meet the runners
In the base game of OUTRUN THE BEAR the runners are the pieces that you control, and the characters portrayed in the art. My goal is to one day bring you an expansion giving them unique abilities and win conditions– for now, just try to keep them alive for me, would you?
