They say there’s no honor among thieves, but super villains do gotta stick together sometimes. I mean, there’s do-gooders out there that have to be smacked around! Unfortunately, one of your super-villain buddies has been put into one of those super-max jails for such as you, but you and your other super-villain friends are gonna bust ’em out, see! Yeah, iron bars do not a prison make, and you’re gonna bust up those iron bars just fine. That’s the story behind Villains and Henchmen, a new card game from Ravensdale Publishing that’s up on Kickstarter now.
The game is a cooperative game for 1-4 players. You take on the roles of super-villains who must make it past security guards, locked security doors, and super heroes in order to break your super-villain friend out of jail. Along the way you’ll acquire new super-powers that will help you in your evil endeavor. But, of course, being villains, you can’t help but compete with one-another some. Get the most VPs and be able to crown yourself “Most Dangerous Villain.”
The campaign is about 1/3 funded with still 32 days left on the clock.
