Boardgames in Blighty News – Overlords of Infamy from Obscure Reference Games is LIVE on Kickstarter
I continues to be a busy time over on Kickstarter for sure. Overlords of Infamy appears to be one of the few exceptions amongst the many many fantasy themed games populating Kickstarter that has caught my interest. If I had the cash I would definitely be tempted. In fact I suspect that fans of Lords of Waterdeep will be very interested to check out this Kickstarter project.
From the Kickstarter page –
Overlords of Infamy is a ridiculously silly medium-weight game of world domination for (currently) 2-4 Players Ages 8+, and the first project from Obscure Reference Games. Overlords of Infamy has been described as an original take on quest completion, borrowing elements from Lords of Waterdeep and Settlers of Catan, while also blending in its own style.
Join us on Planet Fred and take on the role of one of the Evil Overlords vying to reign supreme after a campaign of sowing misery throughout the land. Exploit the land around your lair, then command your Lackeys to gather the necessary resources from them to complete your Nefarious Plots in order to spread Misery across the land. Along the way you’ll have to contend with a pesky Adventuring Hero from the Kingdom of Good, your fellow Overlords, and maybe even Planet Fred itself!
Its nice to see a light game that doesn’t take itself too seriously in the fantasy genre and yet seems to have a mix of good fun mechanics in the gameplay experience. AND its EU friendly! Yes!
