A spin-off title from the social deduction game The Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow, Gathering of the Wicked sees players taking on the roles of some classic Disney antagonists like Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent, Hades from Hercules, Captain Hook out of Peter Pan, Snow White’s Wicked Queen and Prince John from Robin Hood. Whilst the original werewolves formula had players attempting to discern between the good and bad characters in their imaginary village, Gathering of the Wicked sees everyone taking the mantle of wickedness.
In Gathering of the Wicked, Disney Villains and their Henchmen find themselves in a dark realm. There, the ultimate battle to determine which Disney Villain will reign supreme begins! Two teams fight for control alternating between day and night phases. Each night, the Villains wake up one by one and use their unique abilities to chase their objectives. Each day, the gathering debates and tries to unmask the traitors amongst them. But since no one knows which team other players are on, trusting each other will be tricky, and bluffing will be their best route to dominance within their new surroundings.
The game reinvents the traditional hidden role genre by creating new roles and specific powers for each Disney Villain character. While each role is known by the other players, every character also has a “secret alignment” that determines their objective – making it even trickier to know who to trust!
