Sometimes you watch the news or see what’s going on around you and think, “Man, it’d be so much easier if I were just in charge.” But most of us can’t really go out, raise an army of monsters, and take over. But, boy, it sure sounds like fun. And that’s what you get to do in Big Bad Overlord, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Big Bad Overlord is a competitive tabletop card and dice game where you use luck and attitude to take over the world. Players assume the roles of evil Dukes, and take turns drawing cards to build armies of evil minions; battles are fought with mind control, magic, and melee assaults, while fending off occasional do-gooders.
The game comes with 74 evil Minion cards, featuring 29 different designs and troop types, to add to your armies; 10 unique Do-Gooder cards, featuring misguided foes in need of squashing; 6 unique Citadel playmats, each with a portrait of a different Duke on the reverse; 2 Magic Artifact cards; 6 six-sided dice (white, red, and black); 8 Mind tokens, to mark cards captured by Mind Control; and a 16-page instruction manual.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. It’s set to go for another 28 days.
