Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power, a standalone game from designer Prospero Hall and publisher Ravensburger, the team behind the Disney Villainous line of games that has sold more than 800,000 copies since its debut in 2018.
Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power is for 2-4 players ages 12 and up, bears a playing time of 40-80 minutes, and carries a US$35 MSRP. The game features five villains, including Hela, Ultron, and cover star Thanos, and gameplay is similar to Disney Villainous, but with a few twists:Quote:Dominate the Marvel universe as an iconic comic book villain! Each villain follows a unique path to victory; each uses different abilities to face other villains and mighty heroes from across the universe.Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power is scheduled for release at the start of August 2020, and unlike its Disney predecessor the game is not a Target exclusive and will be available at retailers both large and small.
In Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power, players move their villains to different locations within their domain, carry out the actions there, and deal twists of fate to their opponents from a shared fate deck. Three different game modes allow players to scale the difficulty of their game by facing more or fewer events — situations that extract a heavy toll on villains until they are resolved the only way villains know how. Specialty cards add to each villain's ability, making them even more formidable as more specialty cards are played. With beginner and advance options, this game is an adventure for the whole family!
