In this story telling games one player takes on the role of the Overlord while the rest of the players are his inept minions forced to explain why they failed to complete his most recent task. The minion players will use cards from their hand to piece together a story trying to shift blame onto the other minions. At his discretion the Overlord hands out Withering Looks cards until one of the minions receives a third withering look at which point they lose and the game is over.
Pro Blaming other players for failure leads to hilarious storylines
Perhaps the mission failed because that one minion got too drunk on dwarven ale, or maybe it was that the other minion fell under the sway of a mysterious siren, no, it was definitely because all the other minions are working for the other dark overlord! Whatever the case, the shifting blame and pointing fingers leads to a frantic and fun game full of laughs.
