Big Bad Overlord is a card and dice game for 4-6 players in which you take on the role of a mighty Lord of Darkness, fighting with other sinister beings for control of the world. Players gather evil minions, hunt for great artifacts of power, and fend off the occasional do-gooder bent on "saving the world." Capture your enemies' minions with Mind Control, shatter their troops with mighty blasts of Magic, or just hack and slash your way to the top!
A group of mighty Dukes carved the world between themselves after shoving the last Overlord into a convenient volcano. None of the Dukes was strong enough to overthrow the others; consequently they all coexisted in an uneasy, snarling state of truce. (There was a lot of snarling.)
Then the oracles announced that two of the Overlord’s mightiest weapons had returned to the world. With the might of the Doomsword and the Mageskull, one of the Dukes might be able to finally overpower the others. And so they all began gathering their minions in preparation for a world-shattering war, an apocalyptic struggle to finally emerge supreme as the new BIG BAD OVERLORD.
