A clever boardgame where the players work in cooperation, rather than in competition like most boardgames.
"It is the very near future, and America is under siege by creatures of evil, creatures that feast on human suffering. Their minions spawned humanity's darkest myths — its stories of blood drinkers, flesh eaters, shape changers, and soul stealers. Legends speak of them as vampires, zombies, ogres, ghosts, and ghouls, but the reality is far worse than had been imagined. Now they haunt a ravaged nation, stalking its lonely city streets, prowling its ruined countrysides, striving always to drive humanity to madness and despair.
But sometimes the hunters become the hunted. Sometimes the prey stands up and fights back. Even in these dark times, there are individuals who uncover the plots behind the nation's slide into ruin and work against them.
In Minion Hunter, you become one of those individuals. While the dark minions pursue their evil plots, you train your mental, physical, and psychic abilities for battle, collecting equipment and contacts along the way. Then, when a dark encounter alerts you to the nation's peril, you work with your fellow hunters to root out and destroy the dark minions' plots. The best among you will become the most famous minion hunter. But you have to act quickly, or the minions will complete their plots and the country will fall completely under their shadow."
