Disney Villainous: Evil Comes Prepared Review [Pixelkin]

Read the full review at Pixelkin

The second stand-alone expansion to excellent asymmetrical card game Disney Villainous, Evil Comes Prepared, finally adds Scar as a playable villain, along with dark-horse picks Yzma from The Emperor’s New Groove and Professor Ratigan from The Great Mouse Detective. Scar is mildly disappointing but the others make up for it with unique and interesting play styles, proving that Villainous continues to host an impressive pantheon of Disney favorites.

As a film student in college, I took a whole class on Alfred Hitchock, and one of Hitchock’s biggest films was The Birds, where a New England town is seemingly taken over by murderous swarms of birds for no apparent reason, leading to one of the most stupefying Don’t Go In There moments in horror cinema history.

Down Came a Blackbird,” an adventure designed for 3rd level, clearly draws its inspiration from the infamous Hitchcock film, as the residents of the port town of Saltmarsh have become victims to the increasingly erratic and violent behavior of the local birds. Since this is D&D, it involves a sea hag’s obsession, a violent peryton, and a town in need of some heroes.

An Easter Egg Hunt is a time-honored seasonal tradition for many, but admittedly I’ve never seen it applied to a D&D adventure, until now.

Caverns of Slime” is one part county fair and one part ooze-themed dungeon crawl for levels 1-3. The PCs are invited to take part in a festival to gather magical eggs by helping NPCs, searching the town, participating in games, and exploring the nearby caverns, providing a solid balance of exploration, role-playing, and combat.

On a very special episode of Tomb of Annihilation – we temporarily handed over the Dungeon Master’s seat to my wife, Heather, AKA Khaless, AKA Bryseis, AKA Miri. Long time player, first time DM!

I got to embody an NPC as a player, and Raymond’s wife Oanh joined us for another guest star to bring our player count up to four.

We still had a reduced player count but didn’t want to skip another week. A one-off episode was a solid solution. Instead of putting together a side adventure with all new characters, however, she had the smart idea to use our current crew in a fun little magical side trek while they slept on the Brazen Pegasus heading toward Shilku Bay.

And I do mean little – enter A Quest for Cheese!
