Time: 30 – 60 min
Boss Monster is first and foremost an homage to 1980s video games such as Super Mario Brothers. Featuring pixel-based art, each card contains images inspired by Nintendo classics and mechanics and items you might have found in those worlds. It plays like a dungeon crawler in reverse, as instead of playing as the hero, you will take the role of the boss monster, luring heroes into your side-scrolling dungeon and confronting them with increasing powerful dangers in an attempt to destroy them before they reach you at the end of your dungeon. The player who lures and destroys the most adventurers wins the game.
