* Please note, all displayed components in the campaign are non-final. The design, color and size shown here may differ from the final product *
The game consist of three rounds in which players take turns choosing Actions by using an Action selection system that lets them draw Action Cubes from an ongoing scoring grid.
The players then combine their Action Cube with another Action by covering an Action space on their Goon Board.
Actions include going to The Dojo to increase your Energy, shopping for new gear at The Supermarket, earn a little extra at The Local Diner, and mixing things up at The Night Club!
But most importantly, Players will use their Actions to Commit to different Villain Schemes by placing Energy Markers on them to increase the chances of success and reward! This is the main way to score points, get money and new energy in the game!
Each villain has an unique theme and scoring mechanic, and every scheme has different requirements, risks and rewards!
Will you take a chance and go all in, will you play it safe, or will you let others do the heavy lifting and benefit from your opponents crumbs?
At the end of each round, all villains schemes gets resolved and the results will depend on how much Energy players committed to the schemes!

Risks and challenges
We have previously done two successful Kickstarter campaigns (Dicetopia and the expansion Roll with the Punches), and the experience of using Kickstarter has been wonderful! It lets us create the games we want to make and the level of support and feedback you get is absolutely unparalleled. We have learnt a ton from our campaigns and are dedicated to keep up the level of commitment and passion with this new project! But a game production is always a risk for anyone, and a small hurdle can easily become a big problem and cause unwanted delay and extra costs. But we are better prepared than ever and will do our very best to deliver the best product possible!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
