This game reminds us how important henchmen are when it comes to attaching lasers to sharks, stealing candy from children, and getting things done that we don’t want to get caught doing ourselves! Henchmen are the backbone of our society but they’re never appreciated and are often killed, strangled, beat up, or even shot off of high ledges...and this game won't be any different! 

Henchmen! is a  semi-cooperative, resource management/pool building card game for 3-6 players, that features take-that and player-to-player negotiation style mechanics. 

 In the game of Henchmen!, players assume the role of evil-doers building up their team of henchmen to take on jobs, earn ca$h, and please the always watching, always scheming, Boss (or "Da Boss" for those under his employment)! One problem. Doing jobs for Da Boss runs the risk of alerting the "Super Jerk" who watches over the city and won't think twice to kill half of everyone's henchmen he finds in the thug life. When all 5 Super Jerks are on the table, the game is over and the player who got away with the most ca$h wins.

Risks and challenges

Our primary risks lie in manufacturing and shipping. Delays are a frequent reality for many game manufacturers, and shipping games over seas involves many complex processes.

To avoid any hurdles we could potentially face with shipping delays, we've grossly over estimated when our backers would receive their goods. Our hope is that this will avoid any unpleasant shipment delays and hopefully our backers will instead receive their games earlier than expected.

We will also diligently keep backers informed of the manufacturing and shipping processes as we move forward, as well as deliver a product that meets our strict quality standards.
