Awesome Kingdom: The Tower Of Hateskull
Get ready to get awesome! In Awesome Kingdom: Tower of Hateskull by Kevin Wilson (Descent, Arkham Horror, CHEW) you’ll take charge of one of the “Awesome Ocho”, a band of heroes on a dungeon crawl searching for untold riches. This tongue-in-cheek dungeon crawler delivers three rounds of highly strategic laughter in an over-the-top setting of awesome proportions!
The home of the foulest undead couple in our fair land. The Tower of Hateskull is also the last known resting place of the Stick of 6 Parts (glowing golden font)– an artifact so ridiculously overpowered that the gods broke it up and hid it after creating it.

Awesome Kingdom: The Tower of Hateskull is a lightweight, fast and funny dungeon-crawling card game in which players compete to be the most awesome hero after three days of adventuring.
Players enter the dungeon as one of eight epic characters, such as the Ragebarian, Prestidigimancer, or Paladude, with each character being bestowed with an appropriately amazing ability. The dungeon is formed out of a circle of dungeon wall tiles, with dungeon cards filling most of those spaces and heroes filling the rest.
A day lasts three turns, and on a turn, you play an action card from your hand, normally moving your hero around the circle of cards (skipping over other heroes) and claiming the card on which you land, which could be treasure, a monster (which wounds you before you defeat it), a trap, or even a magic item. Cards are worth various amounts of awesomeness, and you want to be the most awesome hero at the end of the third day.
