Attention all Sith Lords and Dark Jedi, this game is for you! Ravensburger's Star Wars Villainous: Power of The Dark Side is a strategy board game that will put your devious mind to the test. As a huge fan of both Star Wars and board games, I was excited to give this a try. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint.

The game is designed for ages 10 and up, but don't let that fool you. The strategy involved will challenge even the most experienced gamers. The set-up is simple, each player takes on the role of a different Star Wars villain and attempts to complete their own unique set of objectives. The game board is beautifully illustrated with different planets and the characters' locations, adding a nice touch of immersion.

One of the things I appreciate about this game is the replay value. Each villain has their own set of objectives, meaning each game will be different depending on who you choose to play as. I also enjoyed the different cards that could be played to hinder your opponents or help yourself. It added a level of unpredictability that kept things interesting.

Overall, I think this game is perfect for anyone who loves Star Wars and strategy games. It would also make a great gift for a friend or family member who fits that description. Just be warned, the temptation to use the Dark Side may be too strong to resist.
