Take on the role of an Evil Overlord with the goal of making your subjects as miserable as possible, while other Overlords are doing the same to their subjects. You accomplish this by harvesting a variety of materials to complete myriad Nefarious Plots ranging from “Steal Candy from Babies” and “Make Everyone’s Socks Slightly Damp” to “Throttle Internet Speeds to 56k” and “Divide by Zero”. Your actions will cause tension to build, which will trigger a variety of World Events that can help or hinder you and your opponents. All the while an Adventuring Hero will be crusading to thwart your plans, and the Overlords will commit acts of Espionage against one another. Earn the most Misery Points by the time the World has had enough to be denounced the winner!
