Outwit your friends, avoid foul creatures, and build 3 houses before any else in this beautiful game by Druid City Games. In The Grimm Forest you play the niece or nephew of one of the 3 Little Pigs and compete to build 3 houses made of straw, wood, or brick. During the Gather Phase, players will secretly pick a location of the Grimm Forest to travel to in order to get resources needed to build their houses. If another Pig goes to your location, you evenly split the resources with them. If you're there alone, you get all of the resources to yourself. Next is the Build Phase, where players perform two of three available actions. They can spend their resources to build a section of a house (foundation, walls, or roof), take one resource from the bank, or take a Fable card to use during a future Gather phase. The Fable cards can summon monsters to mess with your opponents, allow you to steal resources from others, gain extra actions for the build phase, and more. A famous fairytale friend (Cinderella, Goldilocks, Robin Hood, Snow White, Rumplestiltskin, etc.) can also be called upon to help you in your building efforts by granting you powerful, permanent abilities. The game contains gorgeous artwork, beautifully sculpted miniatures, and nifty components. The easy rules and familiar characters will appeal to children while the strategy, deduction, and player-reading will have adults scratching their chinny chin chin game after game! The Grimm Forest supports 2-4 players and has a playtime of 40-60 minutes. For more details and to back their campaign, visit The Grimm Forest Kickstarter page.
