    Whack & Slaughter is a fantasy skirmish game, where each player uses one miniature that represents his character on the battlefield. A player may use any miniature he already possesses, as the system allows to configure the character however he wishes.

    Similar to role playing games, before a game begins, each player has to create his Hero by buying levels in the traits defence, melee, ranged combat and magic. Depending on the choice of traits, a Hero gets access to a certain amount of skills. Currently there are 15 schools of skills available and - if a Hero uses 1 or 2 traits only - he may pick skills from up to two schools. Each school features 10 common skills as well as 5 elite skills - skills with superior effects. Only Heros having specialized in one trait receive access to elite skills.

    The five dice a player brings along not only serve as randomizers, but as life counters and a measurement of movement as well. So each time a Hero takes damage, he will become slower and less efficient. Gameplay takes place on comparatively small "maps" (a term derived from video game language), forcing the Heros from the beginning into close quarter combat. A couple of scenarios are given in the rulebook, such as the classic "all vs. all" (also available as "team vs. team"), capture the flag, king of the hill, bombing run, a treasure hunt and even a snowfall scenario allowing players to duke it out in a snowball fight. Also, players are encouraged to create their own scenarios if the given ones do not suffice.

    Also do try the companon app, allowing you to create Heros and read through the skill library, while you're on your way:
