- Play as one of six iconic Disney Villains (Maleficent, Ursula, Jafar, Prince John, Queen of Hearts, Captain Hook). - Each Villain has their own oversized sculpted mover. - The game where being the bad guy is a good thing. - Fate cards allow you to meddle with other Villain's objectives!
You are the Villain! Command your henchmen, defeat the heroes, and enact your evil scheme. In Villainous, the story-based gameplay allows players to experience events from the classic Disney films, Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Robin Hood, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan in exciting new ways. Each Villain plays differently, offering rich strategy to explore, surprising combinations to discover, and plenty of replay value. To play, move to a spot on your board and take actions based on your options at that location - actions will allow you to gain power, play cards, and defeat heroes. But, being a true Villain requires strategic interference with your opponents' goals. Use other players' Fate cards featuring heroes and other meddlesome objects, to prevent them from reaching their objectives. Be the first to achieve your Villain's devious objective and you win!
This game is great for 2 people (or more) which I was looking for. We were looking for a slightly complicated strategy game and this was perfect! The different villains are fun and I love that you can be 6 different ones before repeating. Some of the villains are more straightforward to play then others.
Love this game so much. It does take a little bit to get the hang of but once you do it's fun! Super challenging and all the villains are different and challenging in different ways. It is by far my husband and I's new favorite. We've played all the villains already and ordered all the expansions we love it so much. Played all the villains in the first expansion we have and now are waiting for the others to arrive to play more.
This is, without a doubt or hesitation, or new favorite game. We ordered this a few weeks ago and have played every other day, sometimes multiple times a day, and have added all the expansion packs. The game, cards, and pieces are gorgeously designed and intricately drawn. You can play over and over again with the same characters, and still have a different outcomes and experiences. Many of the negative reviews here cite the complexity and slow procedure of understanding the game, as well as the variously degreed individuals who were unable to play. I'd say that's a testament to the game's worth! These two grad students were able to figure it out, and love it ;-) We watched one 10m explanatory video on the game's function, and learned the rest by playing. It's engaging, creative, and requires a lot of critical thinking and strategy if you're willing to put in a little brain power. This isn't just a mindless roll and move board game–you need to be thinking about your next few turns, as well as your opponents! We've only played two player, but it is barrels of fun, sometimes hours of fun. Word to the wise: don't play Ursula, you'll regret it.
I love this game! It is complicated to learn. I suggest watching someone set up and play the game on YouTube first before you try. It helped us better understand the game. I also recommend this game only for older kids and adults. I can’t wait to buy the game expansions!
