In The Blessed Dark, you play as cultists vying for the favor of The Ancient Ones — the dwellers beyond the veil. By gathering blood, completing rituals, casting spells, and summoning demons, you will sow the seeds of darkness in a bid to become The Chosen.
The simple, straightforward gameplay has you gathering blood, placing spells in your Grimoire, and then attempting dice roll "rituals" to summon demons (gain favor) or cast spells that can help you or hinder your opponents. You can also influence dice rolls by spending extra blood, giving you a bit more control over the Yahtzee-vibed three roll attempts per ritual.
Here's a quick How to Play Video:
Turns are fast-paced, and the game's strategic options unfold rapidly as players build up their Grimoires and begin to summon their demonic forces.
Vie to be the cultist with the most favor by the time the last card is drawn. Beware, however, anyone can roll three of a kind to summon (or steal) The Dark One for extra favor, and summoned demons can be potentially be banished by your cultist adversaries!
It's basically a cutthroat game of Yahtzee with cards, demonic entities, and blood magic. Cool? Cool.
