Fairy Tale

Shadow threatens the world of Dragons, Fairies, and Knights. But this time you are in control as you draft cards from one or more factions. By choosing your forces wisely and anticipating your opponent's picks, it is within your power to affect the outcome of this...fairy tale.

Fairy Tale is a card game where players draft cards in order to get combos off their other cards or to grab cards they see their opponents might need. After four rounds, 12 cards will be sitting in front of players and the one with the highest score will win.

Fairy Tale provides a great introduction to the concept of drafting that, with a quick playing time of 30 minutes and a fantasy theme, makes it an ideal game for all types of gamers.

  • What a brilliant game system! It feels like it is complex when you explain the rules, but after one game you quickly discover the strategies. I love how the card-drafting adds some really tough decisions as you choose whether to further your points or halt another player's scoring. I find it highly addictive and always want to play one more time after I'm done.What makes it so amazing is the simple fact that you want nearly every card that comes through your hand, but you're only allowed to draft one. There is also some slight strategy in knowing when to flip your opponents' cards which can hurt their scores a lot. I enjoy the game with any number of players. It is quite different with 2, but it still works well. If you're not familiar with card-drafting you should definitely check out this awesome game.
  • A fantasy game centered around an MtG-like draft of cards. First impression, using only the basic game rules: Solid, fun game. Not too taxing, but not trivial either. I suspect I will like the expert rules even better.
  • --Oct2005-- Nice solid game; fairly easy to teach, and reasonably easy to play once the icons have been deciphered.--Jan2008-- Daughter #1 (age 8) has developed a fondness for Fairy Tale. Some of it is the card art; some of it is the interlocking card powers (which she finds fascinating); some of it is the fact that it's an interesting little game that plays in a short enough period of time that it can be squeezed in before being sent off to sleep for the night.
  • I finally got to play Fairy Tale. It's a fast game completely around the well-known drafting mechanic. I definitely enjoyed it, but it felt a bit simplistic to me in the end. It's mathy too - which is not my favorite aspect to any game. All's forgiven because of the speed and simplicity, but not a game I'll long to play.

So, which do you prefer. Do you prefer if drafting is "the game" as in #7 Wonders, #Sushi Go!, #Fairy Tale etc....? Or do you prefer if it is something that is a part of a bigger game, as in #Inis, #Blood Rage, or even #Agricola?
