Welcome to the Neighbourhood
In this is a game you play an evil interstellar ruler who reigns over his empire with an iron fist. Rebels, traitors and rivals each get in the way of your inevitable conquest of the entire galaxy. You also happen, for reasons that are never quite made clear, to currently be living in a house-share in Coventry, England, Earth, with a bunch of other evil rulers.
The rest of the game follows naturally from that simple premise. The action takes place mostly within the house and any attached garden. Other locations include the shop down the road, the local supermarket and other such ordinary places.
This game plays best with seven or so participants. It can be played with more, although it will be hard to keep everyone entertained with a lot of players. It can be played with less, but you might have to make some compromises with some of the rules for only three or four players.
You’ll need character sheet for the players, or at least paper to serve as character sheets. You’ll need some ordinary six-sided dice, but no more than ten of them. It can also save on some book-keeping if you have tokens, such a poker chips, to use to represent something called Annoyance.
