This is the Kickstarter version of the game, which includes a box sleeve, exclusive mid-boss, exclusive wizard, and Woes and Lamentations cards.
The Stygian Society is a co-operative cube tower, dungeon crawl. Heroes work together to climb the cube tower; eliminating enemies as they work their way to the top and to the tower’s master.
Players take on roles of different heroes, all fighting their way up the wizard’s tower one floor at a time.
Instead of rolling dice to defeat enemies, players drop cubes into the tower. The cubes are dependent on which skills the player has selected for the hero.
Cubes are also dropped into the tower for the enemies they are battling.
Players perform actions for themselves and their enemies as cubes fall out of the tower. Cubes may fall directly down, or become dislodged only to fall out on a future turn. Some cubes may even fall into the crypt, where they will count double.
Beware of the mini-boss and wizard on the tower’s third and sixth floors!
If your heroes take too long to defeat enemies or receive too many wounds, the wizard may take the win. However! If the players defeat the wizard on the top level of the cube tower- you immediately win!
