Description

Inspired by a love of classic video games, Boss Monster: The Dungeon Building Card Game pits 2-4 players in a competition to build the ultimate side-scrolling dungeon. Players compete to lure and destroy hapless adventurers, racing to outbid one another to see who can build the most enticing, treasure-filled dungeon. The goal of Boss Monster is to be the first Boss to amass ten Souls, which are gained when a Hero is lured and defeated — but a player can lose if his Boss takes five Wounds from Heroes who survive his dungeon.

Playing Boss Monster requires you to juggle two competing priorities: the need to lure Heroes at a faster rate than your opponents, and the need to kill those Heroes before they reach your Boss. Players can build one room per turn, each with its own damage and treasure value. More attractive rooms tend to deal less damage, so a Boss who is too greedy can become inundated with deadly Heroes.

Players interact with each other by building rooms and playing Spells. Because different Heroes seek different treasure types, and rooms are built simultaneously (played face down, then revealed), this means that every "build phase" is a bidding war. Spells are instant-speed effects that can give players advantages or disrupt opponents.

As a standalone card game with 155 cards, Boss Monster contains everything that 2-4 players need to play.

Honga is for all levels of experience.

I discovered Honga in a search for a seemingly elusive worker placement game that would be ideal for an introductory session with non-gamers, or at best the very inexperienced. It has been a success, with a novel mechanism that reminds me of collecting taxes in the complex Tzolk'in The Mayan Calendar - but in a more approachable format that is entertaining despite the vexations of knowing which actions to choose. I am so glad Athena Games had this beautiful production in stock; it did not seem to be available at a decent price elsewhere. It also got an excellent reception from very experienced devotees.

Love the Digimon TCG & Athena!

I love everything about the Digimon TCG, and will continue to purchase from Athena Games. I always get my preorders on time and safely. No complaints!

Smashin’

Citadel finally nails the boar minis. And the savage orc riders have great flexibility for weaponry. Perfect for building up that Waaagh! energy.

Dice scroll

Very helpful for the storing and rolling of dice generally looks good and I would probably by another. Can store at least two dice sets or a stationary set so very good in general
