Ravensburger details revamped format for Villainous expansions
Ravensburger has detailed this year’s slate of Villainous titles.
One big change for this year is a new format for all Villainous ‘expandalone’ games, which now feature two characters at a more affordable price point.
New Villainous expandalone games launching later this year includes a new Star Wars title and Disney Villainous: Sugar and Spite. Sugar and Spite lands in June and features King Candy from Wreck-It Ralph and The Jungle Book’s Shere Khan.
“The Villainous community is full of passionate, friendly fans, who’ve used our games to introduce friends to the board gaming hobby for years – and we take that responsibility very seriously,” said Lysa Penrose, Head of New Games Marketing at Ravensburger.
“We want to make board gaming as approachable as possible. For Villainous as an introductory game, the adjusted format lowers the price of entry and offers an easier option for couples or smaller groups of friends to enjoy gameplay, while still offering the exciting, immersive mechanics… And a few surprises that core fans have grown to love.”
In addition to the new expandalones, Ravensburger will also offer an option for new players with Disney Villainous: Introduction to Evil.
First released in 2023 as limited Disney100 offering, the game will be available in the UK and Republic of Ireland from August.
Introduction to Evil has been revamped with streamlined gameplay designed to be welcoming for beginners. It includes a refreshed box and reintroduces some of the franchise’s first Disney Villains: Maleficent, Captain Hook, Ursula, and Prince John. The changes incorporate fan feedback and the Ravensburger team’s learning developing the game for over five years.
