Aye, Dark Overlord! is a story telling game where you are hapless minions who just returned after failing to achieve your master’s plan. You will be playing cards to tell your story and using action cards to pass the blame on to other minions. In the end whoever fails in their bid to shift blame will receive a withering stare card, get three of them and you are devoured. It’s a game where you aren’t playing to win, but to not be the last one that loses.
The original edition of the game was published in 2005 and was just a single box, which is being reprinted as the Red Box. Also being made is a brand new Green Box that will include all new cards to the game, giving you more variety and actions to use.
