Villainous the board game has its faults but they do not outweigh the good elements.
I personally think that the game is not the best for a few reasons.
The directions are a bit confusing at first so it can take a long time to set up, which can get annoying.
The older the players are the longer it can take to complete the game since they have more strategy, resulting in a longer game. Some games can last up to three hours because once you get close to finishing your objective an opponent can and most likely will stop you. This is a huge difference between the average time on the box which is 45 to 65 minutes.
The game is also best for people who are Disney fans. If you are not as knowledgeable of Disney movies then this is not the game for you. Villainous the board game has its faults but they do not outweigh the good elements.
I liked that you can play with more than four people, it is a two to six player game, because than you can spend time with more people since this is a time consuming game.
All of the artwork in the game are also very remarkable, you can tell that there was thought put into it. If you are a Disney fan this will be a treat for you.
In this game, you get to play one of the six Disney Villains which are, Prince John, Maleficent, Jafar, Ursula, Queen of Hearts, Captain Hook.
Each Villain comes with its own board, its Action Cards, its Fate Cards and its marker. The Fate Cards are almost always used against you.
Depending on the location of your marker, you get to perform actions. Each board is divided into 4 different areas which will give you different possible actions, depending on the location of your marker, you get to perform specific actions.
The main actions are to play a card from your hand, get coins, activate a power, discard cards, and move an item. In each location there is a specific amount of actions you can perform. For instance, one location could allow you to play a card, get two coins, discard your remaining cards, and play Fate on another Villain. Another location could allow you to play two cards, get 1 coin, Activate a Special power, and play fate.
