EGGclusive Finale Card

The OVERLORD pledge comes with a card signed by artist Rob Guillory. But what is that card you might ask? It is an EGGclusive Finale card!

Backers of The OVERLORD pledge level will receive 2 copies of this NEW Finale card - one signed and one not (in case you don't wish to play with your signed card).

Finales

Do you want the ending of your game to feel more epic? During Set-Up, randomly deal one Finale card to each player. Players should keep these hidden from each other. Finales provide a short list of secret objectives that will earn you bonus Infamy at the end of the game if you successfully complete them. Several objectives require that you succeed at 2+ Brawn, Stealth, Intellect, or Magic contracts. To track this information during the course of the game, players should keep any Contract cards that they successfully complete (perhaps storing them under their Finale card).

During end-game scoring, after players have received their Infamy bonus from money, each player should reveal their Finale card and resolve them in player order: this constitutes the Finale Phase. You receive a certain number of Infamy points for each objective you meet. The 4th objective on the Finale card is always a final contract (which includes a “recommended trait”). Before attempting this contract, refresh all of your henchmen and Supervillain. For this contract, your required team size is 3 henchmen; if you don’t have this many henchmen to assign, you automatically fail the contract. You may activate Contract rooms as per the normal rules while completing this final contract. Players are also allowed to use Scheme cards during this phase, again following the normal rules (e.g., only one negative effect can be played against you). Assign your team, collect your trait dice, and roll. If you match or exceed the target, you receive the Infamy bonus for completing this final contract.

Once all players have resolved their Finales and received any bonuses from completed objectives, the player with the most Infamy wins the game.
