DEFEND YOUR THRONE IN RAVENSBURGER’S NEW DISNEY VILLAINOUS EXPANDALONE “SUGAR AND SPITE” NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER ON TARGET.COM

Introduces Villainous’ New Expandalone Format Featuring Two Characters and Lower Price Point 

“Sugar and Spite” Highlights Include New Racetrack Gameplay, Adds King Candy and Shere Khan to the Game Franchise’s Lineup

Seattle, WA (May 13, 2024) – Have some candy! Ravensburger, acclaimed publisher behind award-winning board games and high-quality toys and puzzles, is introducing a ruthless new treat to its line of award-winning Villainous games: Disney Villainous: Sugar and Spite. Featuring King Candy from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Wreck-It Ralph” and Shere Khan from Disney’s “The Jungle Book,” Disney Villainous: Sugar and Spite offers a new two-player expandalone format at a lower price point and introduces new racetrack gameplay to the board game series. Disney Villainous: Sugar and Spite, which arrives on store shelves June 9, is now available for pre-order on Target.com.

“Ravensburger is passionate about making the board game hobby as approachable as possible, especially for the Villainous franchise,” said Lysa Penrose, Head of New Games Marketing. “With Villainous expandalones, we’re now offering a new two-player format at a more affordable price while keeping the same engaging and immersive gameplay Villainous fans have grown to love over the years.”

The first game to be released in the new, two-player expandalone format, Disney Villainous: Sugar and Spite introduces new Villain Objectives and mechanics to excite both new and first-time players. The heart of Disney Villainous is simple: move your Villain to a new location on their Realm board and take the actions available at that location. However, King Candy’s Realm introduces the Sugar Rush Speedway, a racetrack of actions along which the King Candy mover – inspired by the character’s racecar – travels. Players can move King Candy one to four action spaces on each turn, allowing unprecedented flexibility and power in action selection. Then, the player can use the action on which they land, the one before and the one after.

To win the game, players who choose King Candy must successfully attach a Glitch to Vanellope von Schweetz and then beat her in a Sugar Rush Race on the Sugar Rush Speedway. Conversely, players who choose Shere Khan must work to clear their Realm of fire and defeat Mowgli to prove the wicked Bengal tiger is still King of the Jungle. Just as in Disney’s The Jungle Book film, Shere Khan’s ally Kaa the Snake stands out in gameplay.

“One of the reasons Villainous is so beloved is its ability to bring familiar stories to life through game mechanics that are curated from the antagonist’s point of view,” said Mike Mulvihill, Game Development Manager at Ravensburger North America. “King Candy sees himself as the greatest racer ever and goes out of his way to maintain that title – so of course we had to bring that commitment to life in the game. How we did that was by adding a Speedway to King Candy’s Realm and sending him on a race with Vanellope…and as fans of Wreck-it Ralph know, he can’t let her beat him if he wants to stay in command of Sugar Rush.”

Disney Villainous: Sugar and Spite is suitable for 2 players (or up to 4 players when combined with other expandalones) ages 10 and up and is available for $19.99 USD/$29.99 CAD. The average playing time is 20 minutes per player. The game is compatible with all other Disney Villainous titles, and a limited edition of the game, featuring a candy bar-themed packaging sleeve and exclusive finish on King Candy’s mover, is available exclusively at Target.
