The members of the Hell Club have been working on a nefarious plot for years. They intend to tear the fabric between dimensions and bring about Hell on Earth. The scary thing is: They’ve succeeded. The Seven Deadly Sins have made their way into our world, and the corruption they sow is spreading at an alarming rate. The City of Haven will be overrun in no time, that is, if they don’t have F.A.I.T.H.
The horror gaming masterpiece The Others by CMON, Guillotine Games, and Studio McVey is now available at your FLGS. Eric M. Lang has created one of the most hotly anticipated gaming experiences in a long time, and now you have a chance to own it, right before Halloween!
In The Others, one player controls one of the seven deadly sins and the rest team up as members of F.A.I.T.H., the only group that can stand in the way of an all-out apocalypse.
Each game of The Others plays out like a different horror movie, with the plot unfolding as you go. Depending on the Story Board you choose, the F.A.I.T.H. team will have different missions they must complete, while the Sins player tries to pick them off one at a time. With such a strong narrative voice driving the game play, each time you play The Others, it will be a totally new experience.
If the brave heroes are able to complete the final mission, they will be victorious. But the longer they take, the stronger the Sins player becomes. The Apocalypse track will be ticking down, and as it nears the end, the Sins player will realize their full power and the tension will reach a boiling point.
The F.A.I.T.H. team is made up of different characters with their own backstory, strengths, and weaknesses. Teams are constructed with different classes of heroes with different skills and natural abilities. The Sins player has a grotesque cadre of minions at their disposal, including Abominations, Hell Club members, and Acolytes. If the battle gets raging hard enough, the Sins player can unleash their Avatar, the physical embodiment of the Sin, represented by highly-detailed minis that will haunt the F.A.I.T.H. players’ nightmares.
Each Sin also has a unique power they can tap into. Pride gains an attack advantage on heroes who are on their own, and Sloth slows heroes down when they’ve been in a fight.
The F.A.I.T.H. team spends actions to traverse the city and pick fights with the agents of the enemy. The Sins player can spend reaction tokens to engage the F.A.I.T.H. players in battle or spread their evil corruption.
Play continues until the heroes have been able to accomplish all their tasks or the Sin has eliminated enough heroes to win. The Others is a vicious war with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. The Sins will do everything in their power to crush humanity. The team members of F.A.I.T.H. will have to work together, use their smarts, and, above all, be brave if they want to save the world.
Head to your FLGS for the chance to bring this nightmare in a box home. The Others is the type of game that’s going to keep you up at night thinking, “Did I really just hear that noise… or is it all in my head."
