Wonder Forge's Disney Villainous Announced
In Disney Villainous players will take on the roles of Disney villains. "Each player has a Villain Guide with iconic Disney art and their own game board, and the journey they take across it changes the story being told. Along the way, the villains will send their minions to do their bidding, find out what the story has in store by drawing a card, actually triumph over the heroes, and, perhaps best of all, mess with their fellow villains’ plans by using Fate cards."

Fantastiqa Rival Realms (What Is Eric Playing): “I’d say this game is worth the wait while it grows on you (or maybe you’ll love it on your first play, who knows), and if you’re looking for a fun game of exploration, planning, and careful balancing, Fantastiqa Rival Realms is a solid two-player entry in that space!”
