For years, players of fantasy games have stormed the dungeons and strongholds of evil sorcerers, warlords, and just plain bad guys as heroes: knights, wizards, druids, paladins, and more. Heroically they have braved the darkest pits, the foulest creatures, and the most perilous of quests.
This, however, is not
such a game.
Welcome to The Imp Game! Rather than taking on the role of one of these namby-pamby heroes, players in the Imp Game take on a much more entertaining role: that of the common, dungeon imp! Servants of a wannabe dark and quasi-evil overlord, players scour the world in search of items of power, foil the plots of "evil" Adventurers, and clean out the dungeons whenever needed, getting themselves into mess after mess with the only way out is to help each other!
The Imp Game is a wonderfully hilarious game for 2 to 5 players of all ages. The Imp Game features a powerful "Failure" mechanic that captures the feeling of inept but stupidly lucky sidekicks, ensuring that success is inevitable, but who succeeds at what?
Players only need two (2) Six-sided dice and a 3x5 index card to play, and can go from character creation concept to play in a matter of minutes, perfect for those spontaneous gaming sessions!
This 3rd Edition features a revised layout, some changes to clean up the text a bit more, a little more text about our favorite imps, a couple of new scenario ideas, and just plain more fun!
Praise For the Imp Game:
