During a game of Disney Villainous, the active player moves their character to a different location on their player board, takes one or more of the actions visible on that space (often by playing cards from their hand), then refills their hand to four cards. Cards are allies, items, effects, conditions, and (for some characters) curses. You need to use your cards to fulfill your unique win condition.
One of the actions allows you to choose another player, draw two cards from that player's fate deck, then play one of them on that player's board, covering two of the four action spaces on one of that player's locations. The fate deck contains heroes, items, and effects from that villain's movie, and these cards allow other players to mess with that particular villain.
"Disney Villainous is a great asymmetrical, action selection game where you get to be a Disney Villain! Each person has a different task they are trying to complete in their realm to be the worst (best) villain in the world. If your opponents are getting too close to winning, you can fate them and send Heroes from their story into their realm to thwart their plans.
Each expansion is also a standalone game, with 3 new villains.
Who is this game for? Any big fan of Disney's canon of great villains, as well as anyone looking for a good strategy game with a heavy theme."
