Boss Monster is a standalone card game that challenges 2-4 players to become videogame-style villains and build deadly side-scrolling dungeons. Players compete to see who can lure and destroy the most adventurers. But beware! You must make your dungeon as deadly as it is attractive, or the puny adventurers might kill you first! Are you a bad enough dude to become the ultimate Boss Monster?
Boss Monster is designed for anyone who loves classic gaming, from OD&D to NES. The artwork, by talented pixel artists like Katrina Guillermo (Super Apartment Bros) and Kyle Merritt (EvoCreo) is richly detailed and full of geeky pop-culture references. From the game's mechanics to its colorful characters, it combines the best of modern hobby gaming with a potent dose of nostalgia.
