Boss Monster is a stand-alone card game, which puts players right into the action. They have to turn into bad guys straight out of video games and build a deadly dungeon. The players compete in trying to lure and kill the highest number of adventurers. But they have to be careful! The dungeons they create need to be attractive and deadly at the same time, otherwise the brave heroes will get there and kill them!
Boss Monster is a unique game, characterised by its graphic style, inspired by old video games. The game itself is quick and unpredictable, but at the same time requires strategic thinking. It was designed with experienced players in mind; however, it is also accessible enough for the new players to enjoy.
The game creators – brothers Chris and Johnny O’Neal – gathered funds for releasing Boss Monster on Kickstarter, where in 30 days of the game’s pre-sale they managed to get an astonishing sum of over 215000 dollars (with only 12 000 planned). Since the release of Boss Monster in July 2013 in the US, almost 30 000 games have been sold, which is a real record for an independent game.
Boss Monster, inspired by classic video games, challenges the player who has to become a villain, build a dungeon, lure the adventurers and then… kill them to the very last one!
