Goblinz Studios has announced a digital edition of Overboss, the popular tile drafting spin-off from Boss Monster. The new video game will be released on Steam and GOG in early 2023. The game uses an 8-bit retro style to emulate the old school video games that inspired the board game aesthetic. Players will draft tiles, then place monster and miniboss tokens, scoring points based on the type of tokens they have and the monsters that populate those monsters. The winner is determined after each player has filled their personal board based on which monster has gathered the strongest horde of monsters and lairs. A trailer for the game can be seen below.
Overboss is a spin-off of Boss Monster, a dungeon-building card game published by Brotherwise Games. This game offers players to assemble a dungeon filled with monsters and traps to defeat various adventurers. Players must balance the heroes lured into their dungeon with treasure while filling it with enough traps and monsters to kill the hero before it is looted. A player wins the game if he accumulates the souls of ten adventurers, but he loses if his Boss Monster suffers five damage from monsters that make it to the end of the dungeon. boss monster The box art is inspired by classic Nintendo Entertainment System boxes, while the expansions use a box layout similar to Game Boy games.
Overboss features several of the boss monsters from Boss Monsters, with a goal in the world to expand their reach beyond their respective dungeons.
