“One of the best and simple games I have ever seen.”


The Mad Scientist's Lament!

It isn't easy being a Mad Scientist: the long nights, the horrible working conditions. And the peasants bursting in with their torches and pitchforks.

But the worst has to be your incompetent minions. Here you are, trying to work on your greatest creation ever! And your bungling assistant IGOR can't procure you the parts you need. Oh, life is cruel.

But there is hope! Be the first to build all your devices and you shall rule supreme! Bwahahahahahahahaha!

The newly revamped second edition features a faster play time, larger cards, enhanced Bwahahaha cards, and an IGOR die for each player!

In IGOR, players scramble to build devices, but are hampered both by the machinations of other players and their incompetent assistant IGOR. IGOR is represented by a special die, and will do something random for his Scientist every round. The first player to build ten victory points worth of devices, wins!

*Update*: IGOR Second edition now uses the smaller square cards and the small pro box!

Here is Bower's review of First Edition IGOR

(Luckily, second edition addresses all of his issues with the game. Keen!)


NOTE: This game contains laser cut components. Laser cut items will have a slight amount of soot around the edges, which can easily be wiped off; and will have a campfire smell for about a week after you open them.
