Take on the roles of Disney Villains as you try to enact your scheme - without being derailed by the other villains! If you've ever played Mafia or Werewolf but didn't just want to be another character waiting to be eliminated, this is the perfect game for you.
Gathering of the Wicked takes the classic party game "Mafia" and beefs it up, giving meaningful abilities to everyone in the room. Everyone is secretly assigned a team - Team Mayhem or Team Mischief. Mischief is heavily outnumbered but gets to eliminate someone from Mayhem each round. Mayhem doesn't know who is on which team, and must use their powers of deduction and their player abilities to determine friend and foe!
In addition to these teams, each player is assigned a specific Disney villain or henchmen. These duos are granted unique abilities that can help learn about the identities of other players or affect the events of the game each round.
Rounds are played out in two large phases. The Night phase has players close their eyes when it isn't their turn. One by one, the moderator will call on players to use their abilities. During the subsequent Day phase, the moderator reveals the events that happened during the night, after which the players discuss and accuse each other of all the nefarious things that happened.
This one's a blast. Great gift idea for teens and college kids because of how social it is. Plus, it's fun to be a bad guy.
