Aye, Dark Overlord! is a card-based, improvisational role-playing game for 4-6 players. In it, one player takes the role of the most cliched Dark Overlord they can, and the other players serve as their minions.

The minions each have a hand of cards. These come in two types. One describes places, objects, or monsters; the other provides actions you can take.

Play starts when the Overlord picks a minion to blame for the failure of their latest Evil Plan (tm). That minion has to use at least one of each card type to create a story explaining why a different minion is to blame for that failure. That minion then has to do the same; this repeats until a minion doesn't have the right cards to pass blame, or can't invent a story. They then receive a Withering Stare from the Overlord.

Play continues until a player receives their third Withering Stare.
