EVER WANTED TO BE A SUPERVILLAIN?
WANT TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD IN EVIL WAYS ONLY YOU CAN COME UP WITH?
While your schemes are great, sadly your subordinates are your friends, and that probably won't go well. Villainous is a simple fast paced party game. The Supervillain lays a scheme (Black Card), and the other players use minions (White) and WMDs (Red) to come up with the best / most hilarious solution.
WHAT IS VILLAINOUS?
Villainous is a card game where one player plays a Supervillain or Judge while the others place minion and weapon cards to try and complete the schemes the judge presents. The judge picks their favourite combination in the round and the round passes to the next supervillain. The game generally goes until 10 points are earned, but most players don't stop there.
All cards are printed on high quality card stock with linen texture and UV protective coating. This increased our costs a bit, but we wanted to be sure we were giving the best product we could.
WHATS IN THE MAIN SET?
The starter set comes with over 250 cards! That's enough to start playing with 2-10 players (Although we recommend 4 or more for the best experience). Most of the cards are unique (with a few doubles for good measure), and the starter set box is big enough to fit all of the expansion sets and boosters inside of it!
THE OTHER SETS?
- OTAKU EXPANSION: The Otaku expansion is a 53 card set that fulfills all the anime tropes in hilarious villainous fashion, from charging up for 3 episodes, to getting your Senpai to notice you!
- HORROR EXPANSION: Villains are supposed to be terrifying right? Well why not take your favourite horror movie and tv tropes into the game! Get the last girl as a minion, or use the book of the dead to summon and army of the damned.
- NSFW EXPANSION: For those who want to add a little sexiness to their villainous activities. Unfortunately we cannot share the inclusions on here without making our project exclusively 18+.
- SCIFI BOOSTER: A small booster that adds scifi tropes like hyperspace and galactic governments to the game.
- FANTASY BOOSTER: A small booster that adds fantasy tropes like rings or magic, princesses, and dragons.
- INTERNET BOOSTER: A booster including salt from your favourite place!
- GAMER BOOSTER: Why wouldn't you want lots of lag and fire breathing turtle monsters fighting fairy boys?
Upon the completion of the kickstarter surveys will be given out to determine which extras each backer would like in terms of booster packs. All expansions are 53 cards and boosters approximately 17 cards.

Risks and challenges
This project has very little risk. We have already accumulated most of the funds and have a finished print of the game in testing. The rest of the funding (aka kickstarter) is going almost entirely into production of the game. We didn't want to buy low quality parts and that is why the cost may seem a little high. We also have to compensate for the low Canadian Dollar.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
