    New Villainous Expansion has real Scar-Quality

    News - Scar coming to Disney Villainous

    Ravensburger’s 2018 release, Villainous, proved to be a big hit, and not just with kids and Disneyphiles – I mean, what could be more fun than playing the bad guys from your childhood favourites? Seems like a no-brainer to me.

    The base game included an original cast of infamous faces. This included characters such as:

    • Jafar from Aladdin.
    • Captain Hook from Peter Pan.
    • King John from Robin Hood.
    • Ursula from The Little Mermaid.
    • The Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland.

    They will be now joined by three new characters in September’s expansion, Wicked to the Core. They are:

    • Hades from Hercules.
    • The Evil Queen from Snow White.
    • Dr Facilier from the Princess and the Frog.

    This standalone should keep fans of the game going for the time being. However, Ravensburger now appear to be teasing the next expansion; Evil Comes Prepared.

    Scar! Is that You?

    A 'leaked' image showed the three confirmed characters along with the current roster, but also showed three more figures in silhouette and poised on Pride Rock. Rumours were abound, rumours which were later confirmed in a ‘slip up’ on the product page, that the new characters were Yzma from The Emperor’s New Groove, Ratigan from Basil, The great Mouse Detective and, most fittingly, Scar from The Lion King.

    Scar Villainous Teaser (Credit: Ravensburger)

    Are we to get the big bad kitty? With a live action film on the big screen right now, it would seem like a pretty shrewd move, but Ravensburger have hinted at more details being available this week.

    In the spirit of teasing, rumours and complete spurious fibs, here are a couple of suggestions for Villains that should make the cut…

    Lotso Hugging Bear

    “I’m lotso hugging bear – evil beyond compare!” Look, he tried to burn up an entire generation’s childhood memories – surely this makes him an inevitability. He could be strawberry scented too…

    Cruella DeVille

    So, she has a dog problem, and she didn’t get the memo from Peta, could you really have a more stylish mallen-streaked piece? Makes it worth that alone.

    Darth Vader

    Star Wars has its own kingdom at Disneyland, surely the Sith to be with needs some high profile inclusion? Do not underestimate the power of the force…

    Loki

    Is he or isn’t he? Who cares! Old reindeer games and the Hulk’s favourite fly-swat would help to up the hero and mythology factor. Plus, the god of mischief in a game about mischief? Sign me up to the Hidd-train!

    The Passage of Time

    Getting a bit meta, surely the passage of time is the biggest villain in Inside, Up, Toy Story… damn, I think I might have bummed myself out… better get some chocolate…

    Purchased my first order through Zatu recently and it was the exact journey/experience i would want from a board games retailer. Able to sort games in numerous ways (artwork, author, top 100, pick up and play, great for two etc etc) A thorough review and description of the games to satisfy my inner nerd plus reviews from previous customers to satisfy the other inner part of myself (the "i cant be bothered reading, just tell me if its good" side). In terms of purchasing the game, it was a quick and fluid process and the delivery speed was first class (literally, it arrived the next day).

    We were directed to Zatu by our Son who is an avid gamer. It is a brilliant website, very informative, well stocked and easy to use. Will recommend to friends and family.

    It was a pre-order product, shipped on a Thursday and arrived in Spain the following Monday. first order and not the last. to say something, leave a recommendation to seal the box well with a little more cellophane

    I couldn't find Escape from the Dark Castle ANYWHERE in the US. I was a bit nervous about ordering overseas but the shipping was reasonably priced and it got here VERY quickly. 5/5 would DEFINITELY order from Zatu again.

    Always an outstanding service from Zatu! I’ve ordered roughly 30 games, from Love Letter to Gloomhaven, and all have arrived in perfect condition within 24hrs. Seriously impressive! Would recommend to anyone.

    I bought a 'restock expected' item and they delivered it within two months like they say on their website. You can trust them. The game was delivered in good condition. They were quick to reply to my enquiries. I would definitely suggest them and I will buy games from them again in the future.
