Companion Game Experiences

The themes in Andrew Krivak's The Bear of a peaceful post-apocalypse, living within nature, grief, and healing show up in many different media -- including a number of board games and tabletop games. We've collected a small subset of those games here for you to explore and consider in light of The Bear and other companion titles.

If you enjoy The Quiet Year and are looking for more light roleplaying games and map-making games, check out this list of small-scale, rules-light games that work well with the themes of The Bear!
