About this project
Update new stretch goal:
Minions it has been a whole day since our last update and we thought that was far too much time. We have excellent news! We have come up with a 5 card Candidates Pack for Evil Genius: Deathray. It includes 5 new evil geniuses based off some of the front runners in the presidential race for 2016. Of course we want you minions to have these cards. Here is the deal we will have a new stretch goal of $7,500 if we hit this goal everyone who pledged on Kickstarter will get the promo pack for free! If we do not hit the stretch goal it will be an addon for $5. Go forth minions, share the project page. Get the word out. Help us reach $7,500 and you get a free Candidates Pack!
Here is a sneak peak of two of the Evil Geniuses being created:
Once per game, may deport all Components of one color/category back to the Component Deck. Reshuffle the deck.
Once per game, Teddy can pray for a miracle. He searches the deck for an Action card of his choice. Reshuffle the deck.
We will be releasing the other 3 Evil Geniuses soon but the names are:
The second printing of Evil Genius: Deathray. We only have one stretch goal to include our extremely popular promo pack into the base game. The second printing fixes the spelling mistakes of the first printing. We added some extra icons to the action cards to make game play easier. Also we updated the reference card to include the abilities of the minions for quick reference. All of this packed into a slimmer box.
Our glorious minions have done it again. We have reached our stretch goal of the promo pack being included in the base game! The pack included 5 Evil Geniuses and 5 action cards (Punch to the Ego) not included in the first run of the game. They are now included in the second printing.
Now is your chance to own the all new, sleeker, sexier Evil Genius: 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 threatening 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. We have upgraded these action cards with the icons of the malfunctions that are effected by the card. This makes for easier game play.
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. Evil Geniuses Evil Geniuses
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!
How to play:
Evil Genius: Deathray is a competitive game for 2-6 players. The light-hearted Sci-Fi parody and strategy are appropriate for players of ages 8 to 88.
The Vile Deck is NOT appropriate for younger audiences. We recommend ages 18+ for access to the content contained herein. The Vile Deck contained 49 cards of some of the darkest humor we could come up with.
Risks and challenges
Vile Genius Games has a wide range of experience among many fields, including Kickstarter. We are confident we will deliver a high-quality and on-time game. Our last Kickstarter the game started to be delivered on time with all of our Kickstarter customers receiving their packages by the second week of December. Your risk is mitigated by the knowledge that our initial KS run was delivered within 30 days of our projected date. This time our turn around should be even faster because everything has been completed for the game. We are just waiting on your pledges to receive the illustrious, Evil Genius: Deathray!
