Love playing this game. In the two times I've played, I tried different methods of winning, but never gotten that lucky; this game, thanks to its "random rules" part makes it different every time.

Provisional rating, one play. Love the theme, the humour and the card art. Gameplay was OK. but I suspect would have been better without that game's particular twist, the discarding of unplayed inventions. Nonetheless, it's the twist mechanism that makes the game replayable, and it seems to be replayability that is Vaccarino's design signature.

A light filler game about nefariously taking over the world. It plays quickly and is easy to learn. I enjoyed it and it surprised me. Don't be scared by it's sub-7 rating. I've played deeper, higher-rated games that were nowhere as enjoyable.

"Quick (15-45 minute) tableau game for 2-6p, with a cute theme, and no targeted pvp attacks. OOP but with the possibility of a reprint at some point."

What I like:
- Simple rules; cute theme
- "Attack" cards hit all your opponents
- Plays very quickly (15-45 minutes), but has some decisions
- Supports up to 6 thanks to simultaneous play
- Twist cards really change the flavor of each game

What I don't like:
- Minion colors don't match action cards (not that it matters)
- I would like a way to benefit from cards you don't want to build

Of the 64 inventions, 4 hurt everyone including whoever played them. Another 10 hurt everyone except whoever plays it. For a friendlier game, you could probably leave out those 10 or 14 inventions, although that would increase the value of minions.

I more or less agree with the BGG-voted weight of 1.7.

I traded my copy away at OOP values, figuring a reprint was likely. It's a good game, and now that new copies are available again, I wouldn't mind getting a copy.

Nefarious is a fairly simple little game. Every turn you can play one of four actions, which involve getting money, getting cards, building cards and a way to put markers on actions so that you get money when neighbors take an action. The first person to build cards that total 20 or more points wins.

The interesting thing about this game is that there is a deck of 60 cards which have alternate rules modifications, and each game you draw two of them to be in effect. Which means that every game will likely play very differently.

This definitely falls into the lighter/filler side of games, but given that it's a pretty interesting game given how quickly it plays.

Quick filler that works as a very light action selection game. Minions are not workers, but rather they function as bets which pay off if you place the minions on actions that are selected by your neighbors. So, there is some guesswork involved. Money is used to build inventions, which have one-shot effects. Sadly, there are no persistent effects. Headlines or "twists" are used to give each game two unique special rules. I can see where these are the saving grace of Nefarious. Without those, there is not much here. I imagine this would be a good alternative for times when you are sick of 7 Wonders. It fills that same sort of niche.
