Kids Say:


“I like this game, and yes you should buy it. I played as Maleficent, who was one of the more straight-forward characters. I felt like I had the cards in my hand to win on every turn, but every time I played them, everyone would immediately attack me and send me back to square one. Lots of frustrating things happened, but the cards always gave me hope.”


“I love the game design. The color palette is rich and satisfying.  Every player has different rules, so it is hard to tell when someone else is close to winning.“



Adults Say:


“You can play as Jaffar, The Queen of Hearts, Maleficent, Captain Hook, Prince John, or Ursula. All six share a common game mechanic that mostly involves spending power tokens to play cards. The excitement comes from the fact that each villain’s allies, items, powers, and enemies are unique to their movie’s universe. The game is very good, but you won’t love it if you don’t love Disney movies. Fortunately, everyone does. “


“The game is interactive, insomuch as you can use one of your actions to stymie one of your opponents in a way that is unique to them. For instance, if Ursula wants to slow down Prince John, she can draw cards from his Fate Deck, which is full of good guys like Little John and Alan-a-Dale. Oo-da-lally! That said, only very experienced players will really understand their opponent’s unique goals and mechanics enough for this to really feel interactive. For the most part, every player is just doing their own thing and hoping to reach the finish line first by throwing an occasional wrench in the general direction of their opponents and hoping it gums up the works.”


“They sell expansion packs that  allow you to play some really, um, well-known villains, such as Yzma, Mother Gothel, Dr. Facilier, or Pete. You know... Pete! From the biggest pre-Depression era cartoon, Steamboat Willie! And who among us didn’t  grow up counting the days until Halloween, when we could dress up as Ratigan, the suave crime lord from The Great Mouse Detective?”
