Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has just been recently released to rave reviews, whilst Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and other classic superheroes continue to remain beloved in the hearts and minds of Marvel fans everywhere. But what about the antagonists of the Marvel world? You can’t have a hero without a villain and Marvel sure has some memorable ones, which is why the Marvel Villainous board game series is such a fun idea.
The first entry in the series was Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power and featured the likes of Thanos, Hella and Killmonger – an excellent choice of playable characters but outclassed by the next game, Mischief & Malice. I am undoubtedly extremely biased towards Mischief & Malice purely because it features my favourite character from the MCU, Loki, but I also genuinely enjoy a lot of the title’s core gameplay elements and its emphasis on introducing some lesser-known villains from the Marvel universe.
