-HTML5 VERSION- The effect for pickup the cards is distorted and occasionally crashes to a black screen in the browser version so if you want the full experience download the executable.

Gain notoriety as a local dictator by assigning henchmen to tasks on cards.
Drag Henchmen into slots to assign them to the task and press the button to carry it out.
The more henchmen and the more skilled they are the better chance you have at succeeding on the quest.
Henchmen get tired after a quest and have to wait 3 turns to wake up.
The Boss doesn't get tired but can't be upgraded.
Upgrading a sleeping character also wakes them up.

This game is the best but sometimes freezes in the browser version. Please help!

Yeah I'm sorry, there's memory leak issues in all versions of the game that I'd have to do some pretty fundamental changes to fix.

I'm considering developing it again and exploring the concept a bit more, making it more interesting than a random result. I'd love to hear any thoughts you have on it.

I really like this game! The idea is awesome and its a fun time killer! The music is great! Super original, and everything has a nice feel to it almost as I am playing a board game by myself.

I was playing the html5 version in browser and everytime i played longer than a few minutes the screen would go black and I would only be able to hear the music. I just downloaded the game so I will try that and see if I have any issues.
