The Others: 7 Sins Card Sleeve Sizes | Board Games | SleeveYourGames.com
In The Others, the world stands on the brink of apocalypse, as the fanatics of the Hell Club have summoned the 7 Deadly Sins to lay waste to our reality. Slowly the Others have creeped into our lives, corrupting society from within. The city of Haven is the key to their invasion, but it will not go down without a fight, thanks to the actions of the paranormal organization known as F.A.I.T.H. (Federal Authority for the Interdiction of Transdimensional Horrors). Each session of The Others is played with one player controlling the forces of a single Sin, against the other players who control a team of 7 FAITH heroes. The heroes cooperate to survive the Sin’s attacks and accomplish the missions set before them, while the Sin attempts to thwart the heroes in all ways (preferably by destroying them).
The heroes are divided into different classes, each specialized in a different aspect of the game. Leaders are good at helping the other members of the team. Bruisers are excellent melee fighters. Snipers are experts at using guns to put down monsters from a distance. And Fixers have the resourcefulness and knowledge of the occult necessary to resolve supernatural crises that spread through the city. Each hero also has their own stats and unique abilities that set them apart from all others. Knowing when to bring in the right reinforcement can be key to FAITH’s victory.
Corruption is one of the main mechanics of the game. It is both a way for the Sin to consume heroes, and a way for heroes to accomplish amazing feats they wouldn’t be capable of normally. Taking corruption grants heroes powerful bonuses (as long as they keep taking corruption), but when they become fully corrupted, their darkest secrets may come back to haunt them and tear the team from within, or their flesh might simply succumb to the sinful influences.
The Sins player, on the other hand, has access to the different monsters of each Sin, including Abominations, a Controller, and the terrifying Avatar of Sin! These monsters can attempt to destroy the heroes, or simply hinder their progress on their missions. Each Sin provides the Sins Player with a different deck of Sins cards that can be played at different times to surprise players with different effects, often tied to the strategy of each Sin. Yes, because each Sin taints the game with an overarching mechanic that is always in effect. For example, Pride punishes prideful heroes that venture into the streets on their own, while Sloth punishes heroes who try to move quickly across the board. Heroes will need to learn to deal with the different influence of each Sin, which will always stand between them and their mission.
The Sins are also aided by Acolytes, with each session using a different type. These lowly corrupted servants of darkness can fight and stand in the way of heroes, but they also have a once per round special ability that reflects their previous lives. For example, corrupted hobos take equipment from heroes, corrupted nuns corrupt the city districts, and corrupted doctors keep heroes from healing.
There are 7 different stories that players can embark on for each session of The Others. Each of them brings different special rules, different dynamics, and a unique system of branching missions the heroes need to accomplish in order to be victorious. There are Terror stories, which are more straightforward, focusing on action and combat; Corruption stories revolve around the Corruption spreading through the city and the heroes themselves; and Redemption stories rely on saving the city and the few innocents that remain. Each story can be played on a different map setup, which further makes the dynamic of each session unique.
The board used in The Others is made up of several tiles, each depicting a different city district and different configurations of streets. As the city of Haven still belongs to humanity, and it’s the Sins that are attempting to take it over, the heroes can use it to get different benefits each district offers them. For example, they can go to the hospital to heal wounds, to the museum to get rid of corruption, to the RavenCorp tower to get new equipment, or to the police station to call in an orbital strike. What districts are available on each map, and their location, can greatly change the dynamic of the game.
As the game progresses, and depending on how badly the heroes fare against storyline plot twists and developments, the Apocalypse Track will advance, making the Sins gradually stronger and more terrifying. Apocalypse cards, tied to the type of story being played (Terror, Corruption, or Redemption) introduce new twists and challenges to the game, even bringing in the members of the Hell Club themselves!
Heroes will die. Either in noble sacrifice, torn apart by claws and tentacles, or consumed by the corruption welling up in their souls. The question is whether the FAITH team will manage to fulfill their final mission in time, or whether the Sins will reign supreme over humanity.
The Others: 7 Sins: Core Game
8 Hero Figures
The seven deadly sins have manifested into avatars that threaten to destroy the world with their army of abominations and corruption.
One player will become one of the seven deadly sins, attempting to bring about the apocalypse and crush any resistance. As members of F.A.I.T.H., it’s the job of the other players to fight back against the darkness and hold back the apocalypse.
Do you have what it takes to vanquish the avatars of sin and save the world? Or will you become sin itself and attempt to destroy the world instead? This is The Others: 7 Sins!
The Others: 7 Sins pits one player against the rest in a battle for the fate of the world. One player takes on the mantle of a Deadly Sin and attempts to move along the Apocalypse Track and kill the pesky members of F.A.I.T.H. standing in their way. The Sin Player will have an army of abominations to help them as well as a multitude of other options at their disposal.
The rest of the players play as a team of F.A.I.T.H. operatives tasked with cancelling the apocalypse and purging the avatars of sin. They will have seven characters with unique abilities they’ll use to fight monsters and accomplish the objectives laid out by the story. When a character dies, they’ll be replaced with one of the characters in reserve; but, if there are no replacements left, the players have failed and the Sin player wins.
The battle will be fierce. Who will come out on top?
There isn’t one way to have an apocalypse, so
The Others: 7 Sins comes with multiple scenarios for players to tackle. Each scenario presents the members of F.A.I.T.H. with different challenges to overcome as they fight against the Sin Player and their army.
The city tiles are double-sided, providing more customizability for each encounter. How will a new configuration change your strategy?
One of the cores of
The Others: 7 Sins is the combat, which is resolved by a roll of the dice. While that may sound simple on the surface, there are several twists that will take players for a ride.
Chain Dice and hit harder!
When players roll dice for combat, there is a possibility they’ll roll a hit symbol that lets them add another die to their roll. Players could end up chaining multiple dice, possibly swinging combat in their favor.
Engaging in combat has its dangers, but players can mitigate that by voluntarily taking on corruption for benefits. When a player takes on corruption, they’ll gain bonuses for each corruption they’ve taken on. The benefits are many, but there are downsides as well.
Players will take wounds if monsters manage to get a hit in on them during combat. These wounds add up quickly, covering up the benefits that player would’ve received from gaining corruption. The more combat you engage in, the more risk there is of taking wounds. If a character takes enough wounds, they’ll die and need to be replaced with a new character. The dynamic between gaining corruption and risking wounds provides players with interesting choices throughout the game.
The apocalypse is nigh! Will the seven deadly sins overcome humanity and drown the world in darkness? Or will the members of F.
A.I.T.H. succeed and protect the world from impending disaster? Get your copy of The Others: 7 Sins and play out your story!

7 Sins (2005 — Windows). Links, descriptions, reviews, screenshots, videos on Old-Games.RU
Barbie dolls are very popular in the world. Computer games for a long time bypassed their attention to the possibility of embodying such virtual dolls for everyone, everyone, everyone who wants a peaceful gameplay. But when the developers of the Maxis studio created the game The Sims , along the way coming up with a new definition for the «life simulator» genre for it, they did not fail at all and gained great success with the general public. Arranging a virtual life and building houses for your human Sims was very exciting, but the gameplay, in fact, is not so original: the player’s actions repeat the same fuss with dolls.
Of course, many developers would like to be on the same field as The Sims and get their share of the profits. Obviously, just copying the «life simulator» will not be enough — you need some kind of branded zest that would attract the attention of players.
For the game 7 Sins , it was decided to increase the dynamics of the gameplay and lure players with promises of a hooligan theme. Studio Monte Cristo and publisher Digital Jesters invited players to try the notorious seven deadly sins.
The protagonist of this game must get to the top of the social ladder, but the way there is associated with all sorts of dirty deeds. 7 Sins takes place in the fictional city of Apple City, which further echoes the theme of the forbidden fruit (which is often depicted as an apple).
The protagonist’s name is Luke (real name Jay Falcon) and he wants to achieve popularity in the prestigious and luxurious city of Apple City. His career starts in a clothing store. Gradually, the player will be able to provide Luke with a promotion: he will get a job at the Eden Club, work in a luxurious Escorago restaurant, get into a sadomasochistic club, a fight club and other places. At the same time, his popularity will grow, for which he will use a variety of techniques.
In fact, this hooligan game is not so similar to life simulator The Sims as it might seem at first glance. Gameplay mechanics and character activities include more arcade mini-games, and the player is not as often left as an observer of the actions of the characters, as is the case in The Sims . In particular, there is no creative element here — you can’t build a house, and you don’t have to deal with interior design. From The Sims , only the satisfaction of some vital needs remained, as will be discussed below.
In the clothing store, you can do the following things: Luke will seek out wealthy customers, flirt with them and lure them into fitting rooms. The ladies, fooled in this way, can sell the goods and get the treasured money. At work, the seller will need to monitor three parameters displayed on horizontal scales. They show Luke’s sexual arousal, stress, and anger. Exceeding one of the parameters will lead to loss of control over the protagonist and a penalty replay of the level. To avoid this failure, it is necessary to distract the hero with all sorts of hooliganism, which are designed in the form of mini-games and victory in which will cheer him up and lower the indicators of irritation or stress. The behavior of the hero in this case is surprising in its immaturity for his age: who would have thought that this sales assistant secretly relieves a small need for a plant in a tub or spoils expensive outfits.
Other locations have their own types of hooliganism and related mini-games. But you can do nasty things a limited number of times per game day. Obviously, it is Luke’s conscience that keeps him from doing more dirty tricks. She can be appeased by doing some good deed, and after that you get another free «window» for a bad deed. This may be necessary in order to correct the hero’s stress level.
There are no normal dialogues in 7 Sins . As in The Sims , the characters speak in gibberish — but there are subtitles that help you follow the conversation and the reaction of the character. The player can start a conversation with any character and choose the topic of the statement / action (humor, love, pity, money, punctuality, flattery). If the interlocutor reacts positively, then we have successfully found one of his favorite topics and are able to completely charm a new acquaintance. Good relationships can bring both earnings and the opportunity to play pranks. And Luke is always happy about it!
Taking into account the fact that the game was prepared in 2005 and not only for the PC, but also for the PlayStation 2, the developers were a little limited by the resources of this console. But they tried to portray high-quality models and decorate the picture with various effects, so outwardly 7 Sins looks decent. Only the animation in some mini-games can upset, especially in those dedicated to bed scenes — the love joys of Luke and his next girlfriend will look too awkward.
This whole set of hooligan mini-games can entertain for a short time — you won’t be able to flirt for a long time, since 7 Sins will soon reveal all its activities to the player and stop surprising with something. A humorous approach to depicting the life of a macho and careerist can please with its jokes, but someone will not appreciate such humor. So we have a foreign analogue of the game « GEG: Wild Adventure «.
