THE WORLD'S GORIEST BOARD GAME TM
|Click on a Slasher's mug shot to know more about them:|
Slashers are the playable characters in AMPUTHEATRE. Each and every Slasher is a violent murderer forced into combat, battling the others to achieve a full pardon for all of their crimes. No cheap shot or dirty trick will be spared in order to survive.
This is by no means a complete list of Slashers; keep a close eye on this website...
Each Slasher plays differently than the rest. There is no “best” Slasher in AMPUTHEATRE. Some Slashers may be very strong, but slow. Others may be able to tear across the board in a heartbeat, but crumble like a cracker after a single hit. Still others have excellent Reversal capability to compensate for a lackluster offense and vice versa. There are Slashers who excel at distance attacks but falter in close quarters combat. Finally, some Slashers benefit from the confusion of multiple-player bouts, while others prefer the comparative calm of mano a mano.
Monstrous Slashers are predatory- and sometimes prehistoric- aberrations of nature.
Unholy Slashers consist of either those Slashers not of our world, or those Humans who loved sinning too much to let even death curb them- demons and the undead, respectively.
Finally, Soulless Slashers are animated killing constructs comprised of various materials: metal, stone, even magic- but never pity.
For ease of use, each Slasher is rated from one to five skulls (5 being the best) in eight key categories:
Also given are brief descriptions of each Slasher's Evil Deeds- special powers unique to them. Each Evil Deed is classified as being either Painful, Sadistic, or Fatal. Sadistic and Fatal Evil Deeds are performed on weaker Slashers. Evil Deeds listed in White are considered Desperate Measures; these are performed by ailing Slashers who are losing health.
All figures were created and constructed by Gil Merritt. Each figure has removable arms and a removable head, and most stand between 4" and 5" high. Some Slashers have an "alternate" figure, in case two players wish to play the same Slasher.
Materials to create each figure include: Chenille stems, acrylic paint, a variety of fabrics but most commonly felt, dowel rods, salvaged action figure accessories (most commonly weapons), plexiglass, and whatever else was around the house.All Slashers and their images are Copyright 2005-2009 Gil Merritt.
