Which Boss Will Be Crowned Overlord?
Brotherwise Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for a video game inspired board game called Overlord: A Boss Monster Adventure. The game is designed by Kevin Russ, who also designed Calico, and Aaron Mesburne. The retro style artwork of the game is by Darren Calvert. The game is for 2-4 players, ages 8 and up, and plays in 20-30 minutes.
In Overlord, the players are using a variety of mechanisms including set collection, tile drafting, and map building in order to build the map with the highest power, thus insuring that they are the new Overlord at the end of the game. On each turn, a player will build terrain, recruit monsters and attempt to conquer the overworld by collecting crystals that will increase their power.
Several stretch goals for this fully-funded Kickstarter campaign have already been unlocked, but one of the still-locked stretch goals for the game is the introduction of a solo mode. You can check out all of the stretch goals, game information, rule book, videos and other items of interest for the game on its Kickstarter page here. The campaign has about 3 weeks to go!
