Tis the dawn of the 19th century - an age of science, superstition, and
witchcraft. Howling fills the night as a full moon rises over the
small, secluded village of Shadowbrook. Gruesome murders have become a
daily occurrence and terror haunts the streets at night. An evil
creature has taken up residence here and the countryside is engulfed by
a tide of darkness. But all is not lost...not yet.
A small group of heroic individuals, with the courage and strength to fight, have arrived in town. Some just passing through while others have come with a purpose. But all will be put to the test as they race to save this cursed town from falling into darkness! It will take a cunning mind and strength of spirit to
determine who is friend and who is foe...to solve the mysteries and
hunt the beast to its lair.
A Touch of EvilŪ is a fast-paced game of fiendish creatures, dashing Heroes, and high-adventure. Each player takes on the role of a unique
monster-hunting Hero, racing against time to stop the forces of
darkness from claiming another foothold in the world of man. Only by
investigating the town and building your Hero's strength, can you hunt down the Supernatural Villain to his Lair and defeat him in an epic Showdown.
There are three ways to play the game: Competitively, Cooperatively, or Team Competition. Players can race Competitively to be the first to defeat the Villain and save the town, or they can work together Cooperatively to defeat a much stronger Villain (based on the number of players). In the Team mode, players cooperate with teammates to compete against other teams.
A Touch of EvilŪ features a thematic "ink on parchment" style gameboard, eight monster-hunting Heroes, and four different Supernatural Villains to hunt - each with its own host of unique Minions and powers to drastically change the game. The game is designed to create an adventurous gothic horror feel as the heroes get closer to finding the Villain and story unfolds. So grab your Wooden Stake, stuff some shot into that Musket, and hold onto your Tri-corn Hat! No one is safe from the creatures of the night and no one can be trusted...for inside everyone lies A Touch of Evil!
