So, every year Nate Hayden and uh, whoever, do this Halloween Magazine (well, every year for the last 3) and they all have a game in them. This years is Sea Evil. Besides a couple pictures, that's all I know. But if it's open water Cave Evil, sign me the fuck up. Sign me up anyway because I'm already signed up. Here's a link:

Also it's limited. Obviously. Because this company for whatever reason hates money.

You see, this is why I have you down in my head as someone into Ameritrash. Cave Evil is in a slap fight with Kingdom Death: Monster to be the most Ameritrashy game that ever Ameritrashed. Not, of course, that there's anything wrong with that, despite the pejorative genre name. I certainly have plenty in my collection.

That sounds reasonable. There is something about a game like KD:M that is so random and over the top that it wraps back around to being awesome again. I'm wondering if Dungeon Degenerates has the same feel.

I definitely bought it because it seemed like cave evil and a new wave band had an aborted baby.

It's definitely a gamble, but it's also a bet on people who've made things that I've consistently enjoyed.  Plus, it's pretty cheap.

Yeah, the magazine itself should be a good schlocky time also.

From the blurb on bgg:

Quote
Sea Evil is a horror simulation experience. Unlike games that tend to aim for a perfect balance, Sea Evil's main focus is delivering the terrifying experience that occurred on this Halloween night. Characters and situations are not balanced to equal one another but created to simulate the actual experience as it happened. The game begins with a whaling ship on the sea waters, Evil begins to unfold each turn adding greater potential to destroy the Whalers. Through sea navigation and harpoon hunting skills the whalers can possibly reach the shining rays of a coastal lighthouse. THE WITCH RETURNS! DARKNESS DESCENDS UPON THE WATERS!

Sea Evil is a tactical hex and counter game with each token representing an individual character. Characters have sheets with some individual stats related to speed, strength and will to live. The Whalers can win if they can navigate themselves to the Lighthouse or slay the Sea Witch. Evil triumphs if it can destroy the Whalers in the waters.

For the complete experience, get Frazetta's Sea Witch and Mastodon's Leviathan.
