Human Era is a 4-10 player social deduction game where you and your crew are aboard the last time machine to save space and time from the chaos unleashed by the haphazard time traveling of humans. However, among your crew are machines and cyborgs disguised as humans with their own goals in mind. Achieve your goal of repairing or destroying the space-time continuum before fuel runs out!
Immediately following humans' discovery of time travel, time began to fall apart along with the rest of civilization (great job!). You are all aboard the last time machine, but you are a mixed crew. Most of you are humans, set on repairing the damage your meddling has caused. However, two other races have disguised themselves as humans to sneak aboard your ship to accomplish their own sinister goals. The machines from the horrific future are bent on chaos to preserve their existence. The cyborgs from the near future, half-human half-machine, play both sides of order and chaos to achieve their own goals.
Since the time machine was invented by humans, it is unsurprisingly experiencing technical difficulties - notably the main controls. Landing in one of six eras, the crew needs to democratically decide which members are best equipped to repair time by returning beings to their appropriate eras.
One last thing. We debated having a final stretch goal, but screw it! You are all getting what we are calling the Identity Sticker Pack 1. It comes complete with a veritable cornucopia of people from past, present, and future. Who you ask? Well you will help pick! You must be a backer to participate in the selection process. However, it comes preloaded with a special somebody who we think is a national treasure.
These stickers are placed on top of the standard human, cyborg, and machine identity cards to make your game a bit weirder. Because weird is fun!
Every copy of Human Era comes with...
- 1x really pink box
- 1x pink die
- 1x board
- 1x scoretracker
- 66x being cards
- 10x identity cards
- 1x die cut cardboard wrench
- 1x die cut cardboard nut
- 1x rulesheet
- 1x Identity Sticker Pack 1 (NEW!)
Human Era begins by handing out secret identity cards. Depending on the number of players, the amount of identities, hand size, and team size vary.

We will be charging shipping after the campaign ends. By doing so, we can ensure you get charged the shipping you deserve. [insert Christian Bale as Batman here]
By doing this, we are able to factor in your pledge tier, add-ons, and all fancy things that may occur during the campaign. However, we can offer estimated shipping costs.
Please keep in mind these are estimates, and the more items you purchase, the more shipping will cost. So if you buy 100 games, not only are you a crazy human, but you will pay a higher shipping price.
Lay Waste Games was founded by Jake Given, Zach Given, Nick Nazzaro, and Jonathan Ritter-Roderick. We formed in 2014 with the sole goal of making Dragoon a reality. In 2015, that came true thanks to 1,295 amazing Kickstarter backers. And in 2017, the expansion to Dragoon became possible because of 3,627 Kickstarter backers!
We have a number of games planned for the future, and hope you will come along for the journey.
