About the game:
Our goal is to bring people of the world together around the wooden portal of wonder…the gaming table.
There are 180 playing cards, 10 minion tokens, and 6 Deathray playing mats in each game set. Each piece has a purpose in your strategy to build your personal Deathray.
The Vile Genius Games team are a collection of long-time gamers who are transforming their passion into a series of challenging board games.
CREATED FOR THE EVIL GENIUS IN ALL OF US!
Each Evil Genius player competes in the greatest arms race of all time. Geniuses sabotage and steal from each other and draft schematics to upgrade the threat level of their Deathrays.
Have you ever dreamed of being an Evil Genius?
Perhaps you’ve already begun your career by experimenting with lasers and uranium. Every Evil Genius needs a Deathray to make global leaders bow to his or her every whim. Every Deathray needs specific components in order to function properly.
The Guidance system grants your Deathray the ability to target foreign governments and capitol buildings.
Ammunition is required to hurl explosives and radioactive projectiles.
Three Weapon upgrade slots provide every genius with ample space for lasers, rockets, and other devious methods of threatening domination.
No Deathray would function without a Powerhouse to push powerful currents to all the working components.
Finally, every evil genius demands ultimate comfort while treatening global domination. The almighty Throne upgrades provide such a perch.
Vile Genius Labs produces quality components and weaponry for your domination needs. Your Deathray 1.0 enables you to design and craft a devious machine of global domination!
Using Action Cards, Evil Geniuses battle by attacking opponents' Deathrays, stealing components, breaking weapons, calling in political favors, and sending their Minions in to perform other covert operations.
More powerful upgrades come with the risk of malfunctions. Some components and weapons generate unusual magnetic fields, shower opponents with sparks, shear from their bolts from meltdowns, shake loose, or burst from the great pressure they exert.
Your nefarious imagination has no limits when it comes to the weapons and components you add to your Deathray.
From guidance systems and power sources to weapons and ammo, you and your minion plug each piece into place, while competing against and sabotaging other Evil Geniuses to complete your Deathray first.
Let the darkness flow through you as you build a Deathray to your exacting specifications and make your dream (someone else's nightmare) a reality.
Dream! Build! Dominate!
