Everyone loves to be a hero, but sometimes players want to be bad. Luckily, these board games are all about playing as the evil characters.

As board games grow in popularity, more and more games come out that offer new experiences and varying ways to play classic games. Most of these games, however, feature players battling against each other on level playing terms, or combining their efforts to battle a non-playable evil.
