A Grandiose Disaster is a set of rules for running short theatre-style disaster movie and survival horror larps. It is written by Mike Young. The game was funded over Kickstarter in 2016, raising $3,805. It was subsequently released via DriveThruRPG.
Characters are created in a pre-game workshop from templates representing the sterotypes used in disaster and survival horror movies. Play is scene-based, with characters progressing through a number of short scenes representing their efforts to cope with or escape from the disaster. Many scenes will end with the death or injury of a character, with the goal of having only two or three survivors left at the end of the scenario.
The core book includes five scenarios: "Fire And Ice", "The Golden Valley", "Space Station Omega", "The Love Craft", and "Trapped In A Mall With Some Zombies". A number of other scenarios have been published, including:
