This is a URL/Link to Fertessa Scotts' Book of Villainy teaser Video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amQrocUXQQg

I found this while digging around the Internet a bit. Through the design podcast which featured Fertessa's game...

It looks REAL COOL... Definitely intriguing!!! Cheers.

Note: My only "concern" is the playtime. 90 minutes seems a bit long... 60 minutes seems to be good. But the 60-90 minute game market is a *tougher* category.

This may or may not have to do with "Player Count"... We'll see if Fertessa can address this comment.

Feel free to comment if you have questions or feedback you'd like to share.

Oh wow, you're very kind! Thank you for the spotlight. Also, yes the judges brought up their concern about the playtime, and I have since trimmed it down to 45 minutes. 2 player games last about 55 minutes, but 3 to 4 player games hang at the 45 minute mark. :)

I think from what I have seen...

Your game has a LOT of "potential". I haven't read the rules nor have I played the game, so I can't "confirm" if the game is a LOT of FUN.

If it can be played within 60 minutes for 4 to 5 players, that would be great. But I can understand that a 5th Player could add 20 minutes to playing the game. I was thinking that's why you had the game at 90 minutes... because of the 5th Player.

Wishing you all the best with this design. It looks definitely COOL!!!

Thank you again! I definitely plan to have it expand to a 5 to 6 player count, with the grid going from 4x4 to 5x5. I just wanted to make sure everything was solid with the lower player count before I started playtesting for a 5 to 6 player expansion. And before I entered the contest, I had no idea what a good time to target was for my game, so I never tried to shave it down. After getting the feedback however, it thankfully wasn't too difficult to do.
