A world of peace has been torn asunder by the opening of a vile portal from the goblin kingdom. Nasty goblins now pour into the peaceful groves and villages of the elf world, setting the realm ablaze. Now you, the heroes, must quest in order to right this wrong. There are two paths to victory: closing the portal or slaying all the goblins. Which one will you choose? Either way, your quests will be aided by the help of the surviving, and sacred, mushroom folk - and by the epic items that have been lost in the realm's deep dungeons. The world is ending quickly, so you must act fast to save it, but you also need to know when your luck will run out...

In Tiny Epic Quest, players embark on a sandbox adventure nostalgic of old Nintendo games like The Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy. Each player controls a band of three elf heroes questing to save the world and the sacred mushroom folk from the intruding goblins.

Each round is broken into two phases: day and night. During the day, players travel far and wide, visiting villages to acquire quests, monuments to learn powerful spells, mushroom groves to seek guidance, and treacherous locations in search of artifacts! Acquiring artifacts empower the heroes with unique abilities; this may improve a heroes' movement or combat, or their ability to learn spells or mitigate harmful dice rolls.

Heroes must travel by foot, by horse, by raft, by boat, and by gryphon to get to all the places they need to go to satisfy their quests - or to position themselves for what night brings. Each type of movement is different, and limited, players need to take careful consideration when traveling, and how they travel, if they wish to accomplish all of their goals.

During the night, players must face the challenges of their quests, and decisions, by rolling dice, hoping for fortune, and knowing when to quit. Will you press on? Or is it time to save your progress and rest? Tomorrow is another day.

The game ends once the portal is closed or all the goblins have been eradicated. The player who has acquired the most victory points by slaying goblins, learning spells, and completing quests is crowned the winner!

  • Zelda with meeples!
  • I like this game a lot. It doesn't hit the table often, But when it does I always have fun.
  • Solo
  • What a great game. Solo and multiplayer plays brilliantly.The solo variant is really challenging even in the easy VP setting. The multiplayer variant is very thrilling because you have to watch what your opponent is doing constantly - not only that, damage and points are shared clockwise across the table even if its the 1st player throwing dice AND that can get worse depending on the level of the magic track - it is really a fun and different design approach.Apart from that, this game has amazing components. The itemMeeples? Man, they are so cute and fun! It is also very rewarding to see your meeples get equipped with awesome items. Another amazing aspect of this game is its portability. Such a great and complex game, that can be carried around to any place and quickly setup.This game is one of my favourites now.

Nice, I have heard a lot of hype around this one, it looks like a lot of fun. I only have #Tiny Epic Quest from their series but it is a really nice little adventure game. I've always found that they occupy a middle ground between filler games and 'main course' games for me.

I've played all of them (except Pirates, of course). It's tough to rank, but I'll do my best haha

  1. #Tiny Epic Galaxies
  2. #Tiny Epic Tactics - Featuring a 3D Environment
  3. #Tiny Epic Dinosaurs
  4. #Tiny Epic Defenders: 2nd Edition - Caveat: With #Tiny Epic Defenders: The Dark War Expansion
  5. #Tiny Epic Zombies (I'm not even that big of a zombie fan)
  6. #Tiny Epic Mechs
  7. #Tiny Epic Quest
  8. #Tiny Epic Kingdoms
  9. #Tiny Epic Western

So the top...7(?) are all really close. I really do like Kingdoms, but I'd rather play #Heroes of Land, Air, & Sea. And Western I've only played once, but I just got it in with Dinosaurs, so I'm looking forward to trying it out again.

I think I'd get a Tiny Epic Bundle of games that could fill out some of my collection.  Tiny Epic QuestTiny Epic Defenders: 2nd Edition, and round it out with Sushi Go Party!
