In my ongoing pursuit to let you all know about more game companies I present Ravensburger.

Over the last 130 years the Ravensburger blue triangle has become a respected trademark that represents a family company dedicated to promoting fun, learning and family togetherness – important values in today's fast-paced, tech-driven world. While having endless hours of playing fun with our innovative products, children learn to think ahead, to accept losing graciously and to follow directions. Ravensburger puzzles, games, arts & crafts and science activity kits develop concentration, imagination and children's experience of success and independence.

I've recently had this company on my radar after trying their really fun Villainous game so check out some of their games below!

  • Play as one of 10 iconic characters from the original Jurassic Park movie.
  • Game board tiles are modular, allowing you to setup the game differently every time.
  • Each character has unique talents, strengths, and goals to help Human Characters beat the Dinosaurs.

“Hold onto your butts!” This Jurassic Park™ light strategy game, set in the chaotic scene of Isla Nublar, will take you on the adventure of your life! One player controls the T. rex, Dilophosaurus, and Velociraptor, prowling through the jungle to attack the humans. The remaining players work as the team of iconic characters from the classic Jurassic Park™ film to fight against the player controlling the dinosaurs. When a Human Character is defeated by the Dinosaurs, they can immediately reanimate as a brand new character. But be careful, if the Dinosaurs defeat three Human Characters, the Dinosaurs win. If the players controlling the Human Characters manage to get three Characters off the island to safety, those players win!

Villainous: Perfectly Wretched
In Villainous players play as one of Disney’s villains with each villain having their own objectives while foiling their fellow outlaws. This is the third expansion to the game which previously saw other Disney Villains including Maleficent, Jafar, Ursula, Evil Queen, Hades, and Scar to name a few. In the new expansion, which can be played either stand alone as well as with mixing previous games, three new villains are introduced Cruella de Vil, Mother Gothel, and Pete.



Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power
Villainous expands in 2020 to Marvel Villainous. The game follows the format of the other Villainous games however because it is set in the Marvel universe and the fate deck is shared you unfortunately can’t mix this game with other Villainous games. So Far announced for the game are Thanos, Hela, Ultron, with two more characters yet to be revealed.

Back to the Future: Dice Through Time
While this game was not quite ready for full display Ravensburger did show off to me their upcoming Back to the Future Game. In this Back to the Future game you play as one of several pairs of Doc and Marty’s from different time periods collecting key items that were scattered throughout past and present Hill Valley by Old Biff after taking the time machine on a joyride. Return items, complete iconic events, and restore temporal order in this cooperative game. Plays 2-4 players with about a 60 minute game time.



Hocus Pocus: The Game
Based on the 1993 cult movie Hocus Pocus lets players work together to stop the Sanderson witches before they create a wicked potion. Unfortunately fans will have to wait a bit as this two to six player game doesn’t release until August this year.



Wonder Woman: Challenge of the Amazons
It’s up to you to defend your home of Themyscira. This cooperative game lets you choose to play as one of five characters (Diana, Philippus, Mala, Nu’bia and Artemis) as you fight against Wonder Woman’s rogue’s gallery of Ares, Circe, or The Cheetah. Each villain has their own unique gameplay adding to the level of replayability. Plays 2-4 players with about a 75 minute game time.



Dog Crimes and Cat Crimes
Cat Crimes is a logic puzzle where you use problem solving to figure out where each cat was sitting and who was responsible for each cat crime such as tangled yarn or a missing bird. This year we get Dog Crimes.

In space, no one can hear you scream.

A deadly Alien stalks the crew of the commercial starship NOSTROMO while they struggle to survive! In this fully cooperative strategy game based on the 1979 film, players work together to move through the ship, gather supplies, and craft items. Crew members must tread carefully as they work through different missions—the ALIEN could be just around the corner. To win, crew members must complete their starting objectives and one of five final missions. Crew members lose if their morale reaches zero, signaling that the crew has lost hope, or if the Nostromo self-destructs.

Immersive gameplay recreates the tension of the classic thriller ALIEN. The game features six sculpted miniatures of the film’s characters, including Ripley, Brett, Dallas, Lambert, Parker, and the Alien as well as thematic artwork on the board, cards, tokens, and player mats.

Players will complete different objectives and one of five final missions each time. “Conceal” tokens change the location of the ALIEN and Jonesy the cat each game with the Ability to add Science Officer Ash for increased difficulty.

One thousand years ago, superstition and the sword ruled. It was a time of darkness. It was a world of fear. It was the age of Gargoyles. Stone by day, warriors by night, we were betrayed by the humans we had sworn to protect, frozen in stone by a magic spell for a thousand years. Now here in Manhattan, the spell is broken, and we live again!

Work together as Goliath, Brooklyn, Broadway, Hudson, and Elisa Maza to defend Manhattan from Xanatos and Demona! The Gargoyles do battle on a three-dimensional cityscape board showing Manhattan as it was presented in the cartoon, complete with Xanatos’ castle-topped skyscraper, the police clock tower, and more.

Play in one of four scenarios:
Reawakening: Face off against Xanatos and Demona and save Coldstone’s mind.
Temptation and Magic: Take back the Grimorum Arcanorum from Demona and save those she’s enslaved.
Information Warfare: Stop Xanatos and the Steel Clan from collecting disks of stolen data.
Battle with the Steel Clan: In this one vs. many scenario, one player takes the role of Xanatos and the Steel Clan and tries to either defeat a hero or destroy the police tower. The other players win as the Gargoyles if they defeat Xanatos.


Based on the first season of the fan-favorite Disney cartoon originally debuted in 1994 the game includes six miniatures of Goliath, Brooklyn, Lexington, Broadway, Hudson, and Elisa Maza and features original artwork of the characters and landscapre. Highly replayable as each character has unique abilities, and there are four scenarios to play and you can play as a fully cooperative or one-versus-many game.

Marvel Villainous: Mischief & Malice

Dominate the Marvel Universe as Loki, M.O.D.O.K., or Madame Masque in Marvel Villainous: Mischief & Malice, the first expandalone in the Marvel Villainous line!

Following the release of Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power, one of the fastest-selling games in Ravensburger history, Mischief & Malice follows up with the most-requested Villain (Loki) along with the popularly requested M.O.D.O.K. and comic book deep-cut Madame Masque. To win, each Villain must complete a unique story-based objective featuring all-new, original artwork for each card.

Finally, Madame Masque must vanquish eight heroes specifically to settle her vendetta. She’ll need to balance vanquishing heroes to satisfy her vendetta or vanquishing them for a contract—one of the only ways in the game she can gain power.
