A frenzied fury of hillbilly horror! Designed for gamers looking for a simple, fun miniatures game without tons of rules or a huge price tag. The Hills Rise Wild is played on a game board made from 18 swappable tiles, with 32 cards, 24 cardstock miniatures (plus 24 grisly corpses to mark dead characters), and the much-feared Hats: folding markers you hang jauntily on injured characters to mark their status. The premise is so simple it's almost ignorant: Old Wizard Whateley has died and left behind his fabled copy of the Necronomicon, an ancient tome of blasphemous evil. You've got to ransack the ramshackle shacks of Dunwich and locate the lost Whateley Seal, with which you can open up the magically-warded Whateley Manor and find the Necronomicon. Then you take it back to your Summoning Circle, summon the dark god of your choice, and win the game. Of course, the other players aren't going to sit back and watch you win... you've got to fight them tooth and claw, strategically using your various characters to their best advantage.
