Table for Two often focuses on lighter or easier to play two player games, but that’s not always the case! This week Heather and Phil try out a very popular but heady game of Villainous. Playing the Disney version, this episode features a new camera layout so you can follow the action closely, watch them both attempt to foil the good guys, and you get a lot of information about the new table.
Trust me, that last point is funny and worth the watch almost by itself.
If this game sounds like a blast, and you believe the Disney Villain life might be for you, then you should check out Amazon for up to date pricing on a copy of your own!
This is a really interesting game and I’m curious to see how this Villainous playthrough does, because I could see a lot of people liking what this brings to the table for their home game collection.
About Villainous the Boardgame
This is one of those games that went straight to the mainstream upon release and the fanfare was well-deserved. There was no way to not pay attention to this game with so many people talking about it.
The original art is great, the gameplay is challenging allowing for deep strategy, and the play style is well tested and thought out which leads to an outstanding gaming experience.
What Phil & Heather Think
Phil is a bigger fan of this game than Heather is. There is a lot going on in this game and keeping track of actions available only at locations versus cards that allow an extra action, it can become a lot to juggle and might be a bit much for some players. This isn’t an end of the workday relaxing game where you can chat and only half pay attention. It’s a thinker.
Phil is perfectly okay with this and loves the amazing and original art work that is seen throughout the game. It plays a lot like Scythe, another favorite game of his, but it is much easier to figure out the mechanics.
A game that went straight mainstream with a lot of fanfare. So many people saying good things about it. What people like – plays almost identical to Scythe but it’s not nearly as hard to figure out what you’re doing, how to do it, and keeping things straight. Much better flow and understanding of how the game plays out. The artwork is stunning, original, and just fantastic. Heather not quite as big a fan, but she’s great letting me fanboy out on this one.Phil, explaining their thoughts on the game of Villainous
If this game sounds fun but you’re not necessarily a Disney fan, there’s a Marvel version of this game as well!
