For Fans of All Things Disney
Disney Villainous is a board game that celebrates Disney’s best baddies. The first release launched last summer with six classic villains like Maleficent, Ursula, Jafar, and Captain Hook. Each player chooses their character and collects their game board and card decks, playing to complete their own objective while thwarting the other players, which is where the fun really comes in. Aimed at a more mature audience, Disney Villainous is a perfect gift for Disney fans who enjoy a competitive game night. So far in 2019, Ravensberger has released two additional expansions that add characters like the Evil Queen, Dr. Facilier, Scar, and Yzma. Best of all, each game features original artwork in the spirit of each character and even includes some rarely seen villains like Rattigan from The Great Mouse Detective and Prince John from Robin Hood. Each game retails for between $20 and $25.
