This Fall Brotherwise Games will be releasing the retro pixel art inspired Overboss Duel. This two player edition of the hit Overboss will feature two boss monsters facing off in the Overworld. Overboss Duel is for two players, ages 10+, plays in around 30 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $29.95 when it arrives in September.
About the game:
In Overboss Duel, rival Boss Monsters go head-to-head to conquer the Overworld on a shared board. Each turn, players draft and place terrain tiles and monster tokens anywhere, even on their opponent’s land! Their goal: to craft the map with the greatest Power and sabotage their rival at every turn to become the ultimate overboss!
Designed by Aaron Mesburne and using the same basic system as the hit game Overboss, this fast-paced game combines drafting, set collection, puzzly tile laying, and messing up plans. It’s set in the retro-inspired pixel art world of Brotherwise Games’ best-selling Boss Monster, with many of the same familiar characters.
Build your map by drafting Icy Peaks, Towns, Sunken Cities, Spawning Grounds, Roads, and Dungeon Entrances. Each terrain type has a different point value and unique ability. Some abilities even allow you to move tiles across the overworld, stealing from your opponents or giving them your unwanted tiles. Players must balance optimal placement, set values, and board space. You’ll also need to manage monsters, which award points when grouped together or placed on matching terrain.
The game includes everything needed for a 2 player game: over 65 terrain tiles, over 80* monster and hero tokens, 1 double-sided 2-player board, a scorepad, and more.
