HENCHMAN! Box Set

Henchman: The Card Game is a light, fast-playing card game for 2-6 players featuring player interaction, some backstabbing, and a healthy dose of humor.  

Each player takes turns purchasing cards from a common market to build their personal set of skills before the core game begins. Once all players have purchased a unique collection of skills, these get added to the start cards common to all Minions. All players are now ready to begin attempting to increase their reputation with the Evil Overlord.  

Players take turns being the Minion in Charge (MIC). The MIC is responsible for doling out tasks to the other Minions, who then play cards to either help or hinder their abilities to complete the tasks. Completing a task rewards both the minion who undertook it, as well as the MIC—after all, one of the core responsibilities of any leader is delegation. However, failing to complete a task results in facing the wrath of the Evil Overlord.

Working for an Evil Overlord is never the safest of jobs, nor the most prestigious, and certainly not the most lucrative, but there's still a certain amount of pride in doing so. That's especially true when the Overlord's fiendish plan for world domination finally comes to fruition. At that point, the best place to be is at the Overlord's side as their right-hand man, woman, or ogre. This lofty position over all other Minions is the single goal, the end-point, the focus of every Minion to become the one and only HENCHMAN.     

“Delegation is the second most important skill for a henchman, only slightly superseded by shifting blame.” – The Idiot Henchman’s Survival Guide
