Gratuitous Violence brings the feel of your favourite ‘80s b-grade slashers to life. With unnecessary, over-the-top and often uncalled for Violence, you’ll be using your friends as human shields against the psycho killer’s attacks.
Gratuitous Violence is played just like Psycho killer, but when you are attacked, you play the new ranged weapon cards into other players’ injury piles instead of your own! With friends like these, who needs psycho killers?
To add gratuitous Violence to your game, shuffle the expansion into the base game and get started as you usually would.
Adding Gratuitous violence allows another player to fit in comfortably, so you can play with up to 7 players!
Each card in the expansion is marked with a bloody v, so you can easily separate the expansion from the base game once you finish playing.
with gratuitous violence in your game, the left for dead threshold increases to 13 points.
The core gameplay of gratuitous violence is the same as psycho killer.
The game ends when the fifth psycho killer is drawn, and the winner is the player with the fewest points in their injury pile.
the NEW SURVIVAL, SELFISH, POWER AND PREDICAMENT CARDS ARE PLAYED JUST LIKE THE ONES IN THE BASE GAME, BUT the weapons are a little bit different...
now you can shoot your friends!
ranged weapons are identified by the ‘boom!’ symbol behind the image.
wHen YOU ARE ATTACKED YOU DO NOT PLAY Ranged weapon cards INTO YOUR INJURY PILE.
INSTEAD, YOU play them into someone else’s injury pile!
1. You must play ranged weapons whenever a psycho killer or a betrayal is played.
2. you never play ranged weapons into your own injury pile.
3. cards that affect weapon cards (bandaid, stitches, barricade, It’s behind you ETC.) still apply to ranged weapons.
4. if you play a barricade to avoid playing weapon cards, you cannot play your ranged weapons either.
5. you do not have to play all of your ranged weapons into the same injury pile.
