MACE West 2019: Henchmen, The Game

MACE West 2019 will feature a newly Kickstarted game called Henchman, The Game!  The fine folks that run Hull Breach card game demos will also be demonstrating as well as selling this new game.

About Henchman, the Game

 

Sword & Sorcery meets The Office in this fast-paced card game about backstabbing and sucking up to an Evil Overlord!

Working for an Evil Overlord is never the safest of jobs, nor the most prestigious, and certainly not the most lucrative, but there’s still a certain amount of pride in doing so. That’s especially true when the Overlord’s fiendish plan for world domination finally comes to fruition. At that point, the best place to be is at the Overlord’s side as their right-hand man, woman, or ogre. This lofty position over all other Minions is the single goal, the end-point, the focus of every Minion to become the one and only HENCHMAN.

The Savage Worlds Brand Manager and Black Judge himself, Clint Black, is previewing the newest edition of the game in the most Savage way possible. For four straight hours he will kill characters in the most gruesome ways imaginable (and possibly a few never imagined before). Six players enter and when one dies, a new player can jump in their place up to the last 15 minutes of the game.

Playing only requires a $1 donation…for a character with no Bennies! For a $5 donation, the character enters with one Benny or, only when first entering the game, they can start with the maximum of 5 Bennies for just $20! During the game, players can purchase up to the five maximum Bennies but each costs $5.  On top of that, spectators can “Grease the Grinder!” Every $5 donated adds +1d6 to the damage one character takes up to a maximum of +4d6 for $20.

All others get to fill in their character’s Cause of Death and walk away with a Character Sheet/Death Certificate signed and officially validated by Clint Black. But most importantly, everyone gets to have fun and all the money goes to help a good cause!

About Clint Black

Clint Black is Savage Worlds Core Rules Brand Manager for Pinnacle Entertainment Group.

Clint started as a freelance writer with Pinnacle over ten years ago, but his involvement grew significantly with the advent of Savage Worlds. He transitioned from a playtester on the original design team to the creator of one of the first and most popular books for the system (super villain setting Necessary Evil, now in its third printing) to one of the designers and ultimately brand manager of the core rules. Along the way, he worked on multiple Savage Worlds projects, including the Horror, Fantasy, and Super Powers Companions, Weird War 2, Space 1889, and of course the landmark Pinnacle setting, Deadlands. Additionally, Clint serves as the face of Pinnacle on their forums, acting as the Official Rules Answer Man and administrator for years. He counts this opportunity to hang out and chat with fans online as one of the perks of the job.
