For 2-4 players, ages 13+, playing time around 20 minutes.
Boss Monster is packed with nostalgic references to 8-bit video games, dungeon-crawling RPGs, and geeky pop culture. Players compete to become the ultimate villain: the final boss at the end of a side-scrolling dungeon.
How It Plays: The goal of Boss Monster is to attract and destroy adventurers more quickly than your opponents. As a Boss, you will build your dungeon one Room at a time. Each room has a treasure value to lure in Heroes, and a damage value to destroy them. The Heroes aren't too much of a threat, but you run the risk of Wounds if you build a dungeon that's all attraction and no bite. With Spells and "Level Up" abilities to spice up the gameplay, Boss Monster has a great balance of fast-paced fun and strategic depth to entertain a table with a range of casual and hardcore gamers.
What's Inside: Boss Monster features 155 full-color cards, which is everything that 2-4 players need for endless hours of hero-slaying fun. It also includes "The Hidden Lich", an exclusive Boss card that won't appear in future editions.
