Assemble your cowardly lackeys and dim-witted henchmen!

In Fairyland’s Most Wanted, you are a crappy villain striving to become feared and respected – but with so much mayhem in land, it’s not easy getting the forces of good to take note of your petty schemes.

This deck-building game brings interactive twists to a familiar mechanism. Each turn, you decide how to split your resources between acquiring cards (minions, spells, and so on) versus drawing and playing cards to help earn VP (villainy points). And every round, one villain is dubbed the Most Wanted, and another is dubbed the Most Lame – based on how much villainy they just caused. So while it would be awfully nice to build up a powerful force before springing into action, if you’re not continuously in the fray your reputation could sink beyond reproach.

As you customize your deck, you’ll acquire minions, spells and not-so- diabolical schemes. Most cards cost the same, so you can’t just build a winning deck by choosing the most expensive card you can afford that round – you’ll have to think carefully about how your cards complement each other. As you conduct schemes, heroes may take note and automatically join your deck – meaning that they’ll show up over and over again attempting to thwart you. This is great for your reputation, but make sure you’ve got the right moves to deal with them before the situation gets out of hand.

Do you have what it takes to be Fairyland’s Most Wanted?
