Daily Illuminator

July 15, 2004: Coming In November

Steve Jackson Games announces the following releases for November, 2004:

Burn in Hell
Cleopatra. Blackbeard. Attila the Hun. Richard Nixon. John Wilkes Booth.

Collect the souls of the damned! In Burn in Hell, you try to assemble the tastiest "Circles" of history's sinners. Trade souls with your rivals . . . or just steal the ones you need. Collect groups of Mass Murderers, Cannibals, or even Clerics . . . or build sets of the Seven Deadly Sins. Burn in Hell will keep you on your toes can you see the sets that fit together for the most points? Can you steal a rival's key card before he can make a Circle?

Each card includes a great Greg Hyland caricature and a biography of the soul. You'll have a lot of fun reading (and arguing) about why each of these people was invited to the Permanent Pitchfork Party. And to rule in Hell, you must use strategy and cunning, because this game's not over until the last soul is snatched . . .

168 full-color cards plus rulesheet. Stock #1420, ISBN 1-55634-666-2. $24.95.
