In the game, the players act as CIA agents on a mission to eliminate the super-powered Homelander. To accomplish this, they must first recruit a team of “Supes” through blackmail or raw power, and occasional use of Compound V. Once they are ready, a player can pit their team against Homelander. The game is competitive, and players can hijack each other’s resources to bolster their own plans.
The Boys: This is Going to Hurt was created by Jon Levin, Nick Accardi, and Joshua Stilts. It will be the first title published by 1First Games. It will include 1 game board, 6 player standees, 279 cards, 171 tokens, 16 custom dice, and 5 player boards. It is intended for 2 to 5 players, ages 17 and up, and takes between 60 to 120 minutes to play. This game will retail for $60.
