THE WORLD'S GORIEST BOARD GAME TM
FREQUENTLY AXED QUESTIONS:
How did you get the idea to make AMPUTHEATRE?
Creating AMPUTHEATRE was my revenge.
Why do you use action figures for AMPUTHEATRE and not miniatures?
...Interestingly, for the record, AMPUTHEATRE figures tower over most miniatures, while the battlefields required for miniatures gaming often dwarf those of AMPUTHEATRE's.
Must this game be so violent?
Consider also that- as explained in the game's Premise- everyone fighting in the arena is some form of remorseless killer. No innocent people ever get harmed in any game of AMPUTHEATRE. We hope that helps to lessen the shock.
What is the use of all the blood on the board?
Will (Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Charles Manson, or any other real-life murderer) be playable characters in AMPUTHEATRE?
Sorry about that but just so you all know, I'm not in the practice of glorifying true-life scumbags with artwork, and frankly I'd rather not sit at the gaming table to one day sit across from one of their victims' family members. Only fictional characters comprise the world of AMPUTHEATRE.
When is this game going to go national?
Why does this game have so many rules?
But the heft of the rulebook is insignificant compared to how quickly you can pick up the game. Try this: choose a Slasher and listen as we explain the Slasher sheet to you. In two or three turns you'll be killing and cackling with evil glee in no time. Once the game is over, pick up the rulebook at your leisure and use its secrets within to improve your game.
Who is the best Slasher to play in AMPUTHEATRE?
I'm playing this Slasher, and they suck. Why is that?
At the convention I saw you at, you called some Slashers "Bosses". Are those Slashers stronger than normal?
What is the "Rally Action"?
Slashers can neither perform Attacks nor (except while Rising) Move during the Rally Action.
How do Onslaughts work?
Every Slasher gets at least two Actions in a turn. Let's say that of Actions A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H, you get to act on Actions C and G. If you score an Onslaught on Action C, you can immediately use your second Action before the player with Action D can go. You just turn in the G card, and don't act after the player with Action F gets to go. If you score an Onslaught on Action G, you can use your complimentary Rally Action to attack instead.
The only condition to an Onslaught is that you have to keep attacking the Slasher you already hit.
This Weapon I found has Attacks on its card, but what Reversals do they target?
My Slasher lost their arm. Can I Graft a new arm, or any arm back onto them?
Can my Slasher chop off their own arm so they can Graft that one really cool arm over there?
Do I have to spend my Action to (shake off a Stun / Escape from a Hold / run randomly)?
CHENILLE MACABRE AND ARTISTIC QUESTIONS
Who made all those figures?
You did? Really?
What are they made from?
How long does it take you to make a figure?
Can you make me a figure?
Can you make a [fictional character] figure? I'd really like to see what it would look like.
Will you be making pipe cleaner AMPUTHEATRE figures when you mass produce the game?
Do different figures of the same AMPUTHEATRE Slasher have different powers and abilities from one another?
Are the AMPUTHEATRE figures I bought from you smaller than the ones you take to conventions and feature on the site?
Why are the women in your game dressed like sluts?
AMPUTHEATRE is a mature game for mature players. A board covered in pools of blood and the dismembered arms and heads of serial killers apparently wasn't getting that fact across. But apparently a pair of tan mounds topped with red dots speaks volumes.
And honestly, it's not like I'm running rampant with the nudity, is it...? If it suits the character, then I'll certainly make them topless. Mandibula is a succubus, so of course she'll dress provocatively. Oubliette is naked except for shifting shadow, so sure there'll be a nipple or two. And anyway, I refuse to go the Soulcalibur route and see just how close to the pink bits the clothing on my characters can get while keeping them hidden. I find that it just becomes dishonest and frankly idiotic after a while. Show porn if you're gonna show porn.
What's odd is that I don't hear many comments on the scantily-clad men in the game. I have a fair amount of topless guys wearing short skirts in this game. Wretchedness wears a belt cloth slit up to the hips. That slut.
I really like your characters. Can I use them in a story if I give you credit for creating them?
I'm flattered that you like them and it was noble of you to ask for my permission, but these are my characters. And won't you feel sheepish towards those who love your work? You'll begrudgingly need to correct all the praise your story gets with "Well, I didn't actually invent the characters." That's the cue for Hollywood producers to yell "NEXT!" into the waiting room.
Just create your own characters. It's a lot more fun and rewarding, and I know you have it in you.
Are these figures toys?
So no, these are NOT what parents normally regard as "toys". Chenille Macabre speciailizes in one-of-a-kind collector's items for the mature consumer.
QUESTIONS FOR THE GIL-MONSTER THAT CRUCIFIEND WILL ANSWER
