Vengeance takes great revenge movies like Old Boy and Kill Bill and turns them into a board game. You play a hero that has been beaten and bruised by gangs, out to exact revenge.
You win by developing your hero, weeding out the baddies who wronged you and bursting into their dens to lay your furious vengeance in action-packed fight sequences.
Vengeance is a 2-4 player miniatures game that takes 30 minutes per player to complete. The core game includes 4 gangs: Zuce Clan, Lordz, Tengu-Kai and the Hell Riders. The Rosari Gang Pack expansion adds a new gang, a new hero and the necessary components to take the maximum number of players to 5.
The game alternates between Montage and Fight turns. In Montage turns you heal and upgrade your hero with new abilities and items. You also scout gang dens to find the bosses who wronged you and take revenge in the Fight turn. This is done through a combination of a pooled dice draft combined with a selection of possible Montage actions unique to each hero.
The Fight turn is the heart of the game. Pick a gang den containing a boss you have beef with and burst in to exact bloody revenge. You gain VPs for killing the boss, clearing the den from all the minions or both for maximum points.
Fights are basically dice-based puzzles. In each round of the Fight you roll a set of dice and decide the order in which to play them. Upgrade skills and items allow you to swap die-results or string them together to perform enemy-slapping combos giving you more control over their fight actions.
Vengeance includes 51 superbly sculptured miniatures by Titan Forge.
