Greetings, my old friends and enemies. As your official Chief of Communication, I have gathered you here today so that you can bear witness to high treason… and even take part in it, if you so desire. What is this high treason, you ask? Well, it is nothing but a shameless advertisement for another card game on the Duelyst Forums! Sounds exciting, huh? I’m excited too – I’ve been working on this game for a little while now, and I thought you guys might be interested…
Enter Lesser Evil, the physical party card game that combines aspects of Magic: The Gathering, Hearthstone, UNO, and masochism!
The basic premise of Lesser Evil is that every card has a negative effect – a downside. You must play the lesser of the evils in your hand to outlast your opponents and emerge victorious. And why wouldn’t you just play nothing at all? Is Mana Burn in a Hearthstone-style mana system a good enough incentive to play cards? Besides, most of the cards have upsides, too, though they may be hard for the untrained eye to see. Here are four minions:
Below is the rulebook if you are interested in finding out more. Please let me know if anything is unclear to you.
So, what do you think?
- I’m listening…
- Looks like a cool game!
- That is the dumbest game idea I’ve ever heard.
- You have committed crimes against Duelyst and her people! What say you in your defense?
And now, the moment that none of you have been waiting for…
