Ready your excuses, minions, for your master is greatly displeased at your most recent failure in the fight against good. Aye, Dark Overlord! is available now at your local retailer!
The excuse-slinging, back-stabbing, social card game of passing the buck is now available to add to your collection!

Utilizing a hand of cards that provide helpful hints and cues, the minions each come up with a creative excuse, constantly trying to trip others up and pass the buck in an attempt to not take the blame for the latest screw up. Those that do receive a Withering Look card from the Dark Overlord—the first player to receive three Withering Looks has angered the Dark Overlord enough to incur his mighty wrath, ending the game. However, as it always is with evil, it’s not long until a new Dark Overlord is found and her plans are put into motion…
