    You and your fellow players are a Wizard's minions, imps spawned out of a vat. While your Master is away adventuring, you have free run of his workshop. Experiment with his magical adjuncts to serve your Master better than your fellow minions, and you will be well-rewarded when the Wizard returns. Or you COULD just get rid of your competition by doing away with your vat-mates altogether!

    Homunculus was first published in The Game Crafter Community Anthology, and is a small game created with a constrained set of components from that anthology.

    In phase 1 of each round, each player takes turns rolling 8 dice, and using them to activate 1-3 activities in the Wizard's Workshop, each providing some number of element cubes. When all players have gained cubes, phase 2 begins, and players simultaneously take Actions to move up the Favor Track, or to attack each other!

    To win, you must either destroy all your fellow vatmates, or have the most Favor (and at least 4 Favor) when the Wizard returns after 6 rounds.

    Homunculus is a fast and cutthroat game of vicious minions!
