Those Pesky Humans game turns the tables and lets you play the role of the Monsters who are fighting off the annoying Humans who keep invading your dungeon. This game is playable against one or a team of your “friends”. It is highly re-playable due to the variable dungeon tile design and the variety of Avatars and abilities you may choose to play with each game. Mechanics are kept very simple to keep the pace of the game moving quickly.

Goal of the Game

One Player, as Those Pesky Humans, wants to delve into the depths of the Monster Lair and achieve fame, acclaim, and lots of cold, hard gold pieces by retrieving the Three Legendary Gem Stones…but at least one of them must make it out alive.

The other Player, as the Monster Lord and his minions, wants very much to keep this from happening.  The Monsters win the game if all of the Human Avatars are killed, protecting the hard-attained hoard.
