Marvel Villainous: Mischief & Malice is fun for Marvel fans.
By A.C. Pahia
With the rise in popularity in Marvel, a lot of new games have come out for fans. One of them is Marvel Villainous: Mischief & Malice. In this game, you get to take control over one of three villains from the Marvel universe. Two of them, Madame Masque and M.O.D.O.K, haven’t been in the movies as of yet, but are prominent villains in the comics. Whereas the other character is a fan favorite of Marvel, Loki.
Each villain has a different goal to win the game, Loki has to cause mischief across the multiverse, Madame Masque has to defeat eight heroes to gain control of New York, and M.O.D.O.K has to gain the loyalty of his henchmen and create the cosmic cube.
Each character comes with their own mini game board for the players to play on, some sort of special piece, a 3D mover, and a villain/fate deck. The villain deck is what helps the player win the game when the fate deck is used for players to stop other players from winning. The fate deck can have items or heroes, some of which many will recognize from the movies.
While this game may seem like an expansion at first, it isn’t just that. This game can be played as a stand-alone game, or with the other marvel villainous game, which has villains like Thanos and Taskmaster. All in all, this is a great game to play if you have fallen in love with the marvel universe as have so many others. It is also a great game to play with the family and enjoy spending time together.
