Drake says: "Nefarious: The Mad Scientist Game is a quick playing game for 2-6 players where the players race to build inventions like a freeze ray, cloaking device, or robotic pet, before their opponents can. Your strategies to get the money to build your creations will have to vary, though, as each time you play, Nefarious will have a different environment thanks to its fiendishly clever twists."


John says: Simultaneous and quick game play with gorgeous artwork make this game a winner. Plays up to six making this a great filler game.


Donald X. Vaccarino


Nefarious is played over several rounds. In each round the players simultaneously choose and reveal one of their actions that will allow them to allocate one of their Minions to an area on their Lair, obtain money, obtain a blueprint for an invention, or build one of their inventions if they have enough money to do so. The minions that you allocate to your Lair can earn you additional income depending on the actions that your neighbors choose. The first player to build 20 or more points worth of Inventions AND have more points than any other player wins.
There is a twist to the game, though – actually, two twists! At the beginning of the game, you randomly draw two Twist cards, which change the environment so that the game plays differently each time. This means that in order to win, the players will have to revise their strategies each time they play Nefarious.
