I plopped $30.00 for my copy at Target - I can state, with clear confidence, that this was the best entertainment per dollar value that I have gotten out of any product in the last 10 years, other than the 5e DnD starter set, which gave me and my kids a years worth of bi weekly gaming sessions for $15.00. Who knows, we may get more mileage out of Villainous, especially with the promise of future expansion and new villains.

It was a hit, before I even got it home - My adult girls were excited to play as Disney villains, my wife was more ambivalent about the theme, but all of us familiar with the material. Once it hit the table, though, it was cemented as household favorite - the gameplay is solid - the variety of villains is enough to make game fresh.

Surprisingly, it's turned into a nice light time filler for me and the wife - it plays well enough as a two player - the fate actions becoming even more integral to play style because you are constantly trying to set up an unmessable win condition - there's actually a bit of bluffing and push your luck that come into play when you both know the decks really well and are dueling.

This will likely be the most played game in our family for the forseeable future.

I am emailing Wonder Forge right now.

I kind of don’t care if it’s crap. There has never been a “serious” Disney game.

It's gotten a couple of good reviews from reviewers who got advanced copies. IIRC, its hand management and worker placement for kids 8+, with some take-that.

Please stop. My want for this game is quite frankly unreasonable at this point. I showed it to my daughter and she actually wanted to call her best friend to tell her about it.

I mean, they put fucking Robin Hood stuff in it. Disney does not put Robin Hood stuff in anything. I have like the ONLY Robin Hood thing they’ve ever done, a collector’s pin.

They do an Uncle Scrooge/Duckburg/Duck Tales game and I’m going to explode.

Just when you thought that ear worm was gone, the name gets mentioned and you're stuck with it playing on a repeating loop in your skull for another decade.

Sadly, I believe we are scheduled for 10000 more fucking Lovecraft games before someone realizes how awesome a Duck Tales game would be.

I can play the song on bass!

Played a game of two-player Villainous last night. This was my second game and my opponent's first game. I was Jafar, he was Prince John and I ended up winning in a fairly crushing victory. Prince John had a very hard time doing anything on his turn as I placed an early King Richard followed up by Maid Marian. Once he defeated Marian it pretty much shut down his ability to earn power. There was very little he could do to slow me down other than try and get Aladdin and Apu to steal the lamp back from me, but once I had hypnotized Aladdin there was not much he could do. Both my games have been two-player, so I am interested to see how the dynamic changes with the addition of a third player.
