Z-Man Games Revives a Classic with Fae

Z-Man Games is bringing out a new edition of yet another classic game.

Clans, the 2003 Spiel de Jahres nominated game, has been reimagined into a “mystical Celtic setting.” The new version will be called Fae.

Fae will keep the same simple mechanics from the original game but will have “art and production quality up to modern standards.”

In this 2-4 player game, players will be moving druids around the board, forming them into larger groups that will then move together themselves. If this results in an area with druids being surrounded by empty spaces, that space will score based on the type of area and the color of druids in the group.

The trick is that what color the players are is kept secret until the end of the game, adding a bit of bluffing to the area scoring aspect.

Keep an eye on the Z-Man Games web site for more information, and be on the lookout for Fae to be released later in 2018. It is available for pre-order.
