HellBringers rules



Rules for HellBringers:

There are two ways to play HellBringers with a deck. Survivor Series or Gauntlet mode.

First take out any card with a 666 or 000 attached to it and put it in separate pile for later.

Survivor Series mode: 2 players draw 6 cards a piece. One each until 6 are laid out. They then use 2 dice to roll and determine how much an attack has taken of their opponents HP (Health Points). Overall HP is determined by the combined total of the stat categories on the back of the card. The attack is subtracted from that total number until it reaches zero in which case the opponent is defeated. A notepad is suggested to keep up with HP and attack subtractions. In Survivor Series mode you face off 6 vs. 6 and you can choose to attack anyone in the deck for your turn. Once the card for the opponent is eliminated he goes into a defeated card pile. This continues until the player has defeated all of his opponent’s cards. The player then gets to revive any fallen cards he may have endured as well as the opponent’s cards and choose any 6 out of them to proceed forward to fight Demogargano. However, before you do that you must first draw a weapon card from the deck of the weapons cards. Weapons cards act as multipliers for attacks which you will need against Demogargano who will vastly out number you in HP. You also now get your 7th member of your team to help you defeat Demogargano. This is where you will roll one dice. If you get a 1 you get the “Bum Jesus” card, if you get a 2 you get the Norgren card, if you get a 3 or 4 you get Attila, and finally, if you get a 5 or 6 you get Astaroth. These cards feature different results. Norgren, Attila, and Astaroth all have 666 in one stat category making their total HP brought to the group a welcome asset and required in order to defeat Demogargano as he has 3 over 666 categories. Bum Jesus who you will receive if you roll a one has a 000 stat category making him able to sacrifice himself in order to defeat Demogargano without even rolling the dice. Meaning if you roll a 1 with the dice you win the game instantly. 

The game can be played by two people or by yourself battling yourself to see who goes to fight Demogargano. 

Gauntlet Mode: 

In Run the Gauntlet mode the gameplay of HellBringers is the same except that when you and your opponent draw your first cards you instantly battle them. When the opponent’s card is defeated you will then put that card in a separate pile for later. The player then keeps the card with the battle damage of HP that was suffered from the battle. The opponent then draws another card and the battle damaged card from before fights that card. Both players get 6 cards in total and they battle this way until no cards are left for the opponent. The player then chooses 6 cards from his pile and the defeated pile to fight Demogargano and the rules are the same as Survivor Series for the final battle. See above. 

Rolling Doubles:

1’s Into the Snakes Eyes : Instant kill

2’s Double Deuces: Restart battle (All HP reset)

3’s The Tribus – Attack is 3 times what you roll for the next attack roll. 

4’s The Four Highwaymen Cometh – Choose a card from the deck to help you attack for the rest of the battle. This card cannot be attacked by opponent and will be put back in deck after battle. Do not get to keep for future battles. 

5’s The Five have Risen – Gain back ALL HP

6’s One More to Summon Him – Roll again , If you can roll a 6 on either dice than you summon Demogargano to fight for you for the rest of the battle. 

Stat Categories:

Evil Within

All categories are added up for total HP of any character.
