About

 

We live in such a great age! 

Corporations control the media, governments wage continuous war, and propaganda, er news that is, reaches every corner of the globe.

What, you’re against the Establishment? Then you must be a dissident, an agitator, the very definition of a criminal; a Villain!

Well then, Villains arise!

When our system fails us and reason is turned on its ear, you must work outside the system to affect real change – you must become the Supervillain!  

Supervillain is a custom, expandable card game where players, branded as villains, compete to expose the corruption of the Establishment and claim the title of Supervillain! 

Ages: 12+; Contains dark humor, political concepts, and the disillusionment that may accompany adulthood

2+ Players; expandable

25+ min. playing time; varies by where you set the goals

Contents: 54 cards, rule sheet, 8 dice

MSRP: USD $20.00

Shipping

United States: USD $3.00

Rest of World: USD $8.00

How to Play

NOTE: Dice have been added to the game. This addition is not reflected on this site.

Watch the video at the top of this page!

**RULES AND COMPNONENTS SUBJECT TO CHANGE**

To understand the cards better, read below:

Minions, lackeys, lickspittles, dogsbodies, and other faceless poltroons (i.e., Characters) are the rank and file that Villains use to complete Capers and claim victory. 

Each has a different specialty and vary, typically 1 to 3 points, in skill levels. 

A Character may carry (attach) one item to boost their skills.

Items may be attached to Characters to increase their chances of completing a Caper.  

Items typically increase a Character's skill by 1 to 3 points.

Capers are objectives that villains complete by sending Characters, possibly carrying Items, with the appropriate skill during their turn.  

Capers usually require between 5 to 10 points, of varying skill categories, to complete and claim. 

Other players will try to stop you - you will scream.  

Shenanigans cards allow competing Villains to interfere and generally make the lives of other Villains miserable.  

To play one, you loudly announce "Shenanigans" and witness the fallout, emotional sorrow, and general misery as you take the lead!  

They may be played at any time (one per player turn, per player) and on your turn, your Shenanigans resolve first. 

...and, no, if you don't say "Shenanigans" the card doesn't count :P

Skills, posessed by Characters and boosted by Items, are the areas of knowledge that a Villain uses to complete Capers.

Shenanigans can also alter total Skill points on a given turn.

Risks and challenges

Like any project, we face risks associated with the supply and production chain as well as distribution and fulfillment.

We are reducing risk factors as much as possible by:
1) Printing in the USA to eliminate shipping and produciton delays typical of overseas production
2) Our artwork is complete, awaiting final revisions
3) Evaluating several fulfillment companies
4) Identifying redundant vendors and suppliers
