Summary

Players cooperatively battle a series of monsters on their way to the final boss. However, only the one with the highest

score at the end will win. Players attempt to outdo each other in score, sometimes to the detriment of their quest.

Overview

Players begin with 2 melee weapons, a ranged weapon (less damage than melee, but a chance to inflict damage first), a transform card (wait until you see what everyone else plays that turn before deciding), and a hunter's dream card (retreat to base).

A monster is flipped. Players decide a card to play face down, then reveal. In player order, cards are resolved. Players receive a blood echo point (VP) for each damage they inflict on the monster. After instant are resolved, the monster attacks and inflicts damage to everyone, followed by the hunters' weapons. If the monster is still alive, it escapes (except mini-bosses). If a monster is killed, everyone who inflicted damage on it that round gets one trophy of the corresponding monster type, which are worth points at the end. Play continues until the last boss is killed.

Hunters visit the Hunter's Dream when they play the card or are killed. This is the only time that hunters put their played cards back into their hand. Refill health to max, then bank all your blood echoes (unbanked blood echoes are all lost if you die) and choose 1 upgrade to take from the available upgrade pile.

Player with the most

    Sign up! This seems interesting. Just so you know though when I initially read this I thought you already had players for it from somewhere else

    Hmm? Did something give that impression?

    I think just that there weren't any sign up instructions or a deadline or anything.

    Ok well this sounds awfully neat

    Yeah I tried it over the weekend. It's a quick, simple fun game. It's presented as some co-op monster slaying dungeon crawler, but it's really a press your luck bluffing game.

    Having played this a couple times in person, I'd agree with the press your luck part but "co-op" in quotes, because of the implication.

    The co-op is really only thematic to the monster slaying motif. It could have easily been reskinned into a treasure hunting game where you dick everyone over to grab limited piles of gold before everyone else.

    Yeah, that's what I'm getting at. The game is mostly about judging how badly your opponents want to screw with you on this monster based on their own needs and choosing your plays accordingly, ime.

    It's fun, though! Probably a little slow by post, but you guys will get a kick out of it.

    E: Nah, I'll pass due to my history of being the slow guy in these, but thanks.

    It's very easy to learn. That video in the OP is only 8 minutes and you only really need to watch 6 minutes of it.

    Monster is a mini-boss and will remain until dead.

    All players PM me the card you wish to play.

    Shouldn't the monster get +2 life because of 5 hunters?

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Indeed!

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Yup, this first choice is pretty obvious for everyone isn't it.

  • That Dave FellaThat Dave Fella tube Registered User regular
    The final boss effect doesn't seem like a bad thing

    Rule clarification: I incorrectly stated that all ranged weapons go first, then the monster, then melee. It should be all cards marked "instant" go first, followed by the monster, followed by all remaining hunter weapons.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    @JPants for card PM

  • JPantsJPants Registered User regular
    Sorry all, slept thru my alarms this morning. Will have a card PM'd shortly once I get caught up with work.

    Get a baby, far more effective at waking you up, as I've found.

    4. Monster attacks

    Game uses special dice. Will have to wait on this till I get home.
