Over the course of the game, the dramatis personae will...

Iello's Fairy Tile, designed by Matthew Dunstan and Brett Gilbert, asks players to complete a bespoke story by positioning three figures representing a knight, a princess and a dragon around a modular board.

Fairy Tile in Review 11 May 2018 05:13 #273120

I've played this two player with my nine year-old some times. It's fun and very good looking, but it's also somewhat lacking. The storytelling aspect is almost laughable, and I was disappointed to learn that not only can you only build one story every time you play, it's also a very traditional tale of boy kills dragon and rescues girl.

Now, we've only played short games so far (only dealing out five cards to each), but we've also rarely had much reason to build a big board or move the characters around a lot. However I don't think being left behind is that big an issue. If you have a bad card you can always draw a new one which will give you an extra turn at a later time.

I'm gonna play this some more, but it's not really a game about fairy tales, and that was a bit of a letdown.
