Congratulations! You've just completed your Evil Doctorate! Now you've moved back to the small eastern European town where you grew up to start your revenge and build your first Monster.
You have to appear to be an upstanding member of society, so you have to hire some assistants to do your dirty work. Going and getting body parts, for example. The problem is that as you're just starting out and can't pay them very much, so your assistants aren't very reliable.
Once you finally get them to bring a brain, a torso, a set of limbs, and some supplies back to your castle, you can pay off your assistants and assemble your Monster. Then you send the Monster to town to destroy the buildings that you have been using. If you can destroy enough of them, you will win the game. If there are too many Monsters and not enough buildings for that, however, the Monsters will fight to the death to determine who wins!
This is a 2 - 6 player game, for ages 12 and up, taking 30-90 minutes to play depending on the number of players. It's an action-based game, where each player chooses one action for each of their three characters each turn.
This is indeed a rebranding of "Good Help the Card Game." We feel that the new title is more dynamic and better captures the feel of the game.

Reviews: (Remember, we rebranded the name!)
Unfiltered Gamer review:
"A ton of fun." "The flow of the game works really well." "Overall, this game is really fun, really enjoyable."
Casual Game Revolution review:
"Dripping with theme." "A nice balance between luck and strategy." "Well worth it, a monstrously good time."
We feel that the game is complete as it is and all of the components should be included from the start. Watering it down with unnecessary components wouldn't be the way to go, so the stretch goals are for upgraded quality. Anyone who has bought one of our games knows that we only use high quality materials anyway, but we'll go to the top!
Shipping to the USA is free and elsewhere is $10.
If you are from the Winnipeg region and want to pick up your game(s) at either Game Knight or A Muse N Games, pretend to be from the USA until it's time for the Backer Survey. This will result in free shipping.
If you are an international store, we will ship free to a US-based freight forwarder, otherwise please e-mail me for shipping costs.
Risks and challenges
We have an experienced team of people to do printing, to do shipping and on the organizational side of things. This is a relatively small project, and its scope is such that it's not too complex to get out of hand. The components are all easily made, there's nothing technically difficult about the printing.
This isn't our first rodeo. Apart from forces impossible to predict such as ship shortages and dock strikes, we can do this in a reasonable time frame without a doubt.
