Here to Slay is a competitive role-playing fantasy strategy card game that's all about putting together a party of Heroes and slaying monsters (and sometimes sabotaging your friends too) from the creators of Unstable Unicorns.
In this game, you’ll assemble a full party of heroes to kill dangerous monsters while working to avoid the sabotage of your foes. The game also comes with items you can equip to your heroes, 1V1 challenge cards, and roll modifiers to tip the odds in your favor.
HOW TO PLAY
The first player to successfully slay three monsters, or build a full party with six classes, wins the game!
Each player gets to choose a party leader character to represent them throughout the game. Every party leader card has a class and a skill that gives you an edge over your opponents. Whether you enjoy fighters, bards, wizards, or thieves, you'll find a party leader that fits your play style - but pick wisely, because you only get one party leader for the whole game!
Your heroes are brave adventurers, ready to attack monsters and go head to head with your enemies! The game comes with over 40 unique heroes. Every hero card has a class and an effect, and each hero’s effect has a roll requirement. In order to use a hero’s effect, you must roll two dice and get equal to or higher than that effect’s roll requirement.
Everyone wants to be a hero, but are you brave enough to stand against these monsters? If you successfully defeat three monsters, you win the game, but attacking a monster may come at a price! In order to beat that monster, you must roll two dice and score equal to or higher than that monster’s roll requirement.
Be warned: Each monster has a roll range where they’ll fight back, and if you score within that range, your party might be in grave danger…
Item cards are enchanted weapons and objects that can be equipped to your heroes to bestow them with unique advantages and skills. Most items give beneficial effects and are meant to be equipped by heroes in your own party, but a handful of items, called cursed items, can be equipped to enemy heroes to give them disadvantages.
What would this world be without a little mayhem and magic? Magic cards contain powerful spells with a one-time effect. Some magic cards can give you great advantages, while others will set your opponents back.
Don't particularly like what your opponent just played? Throw down a challenge! Challenge cards may be played instantly to try to stop another player from playing a hero, item, or magic card. Playing a challenge card initiates a 1V1 challenge in which you and another player both have to roll a dice. If they win the challenge, they get to play their card, but if you win the challenge, you get to send their card directly to the discard pile!
Only fools rely on luck alone. In this game, you can keep a modifier card up your sleeve (or, well, in your hand) to make sure the odds always end up in your favor. Modifier cards will add or subtract from the final total of any dice roll. Whether you need to recover from a low roll or sabotage the high roll of an opponent, modifier cards can be handy when luck doesn't seem to be on your side.
