Description Edit | History

From the back of the folio:

Wise and beloved King Mertwig lays dying. His only children, a twin boy and girl, were stolen by gypsies long ago when they were still babies. Mertwig, desperate that his kingdom not fall into evil hands, announces a contest: Anyone who can present to him a Royal Treasure and a Royal Birthmark will be named heir!

But treasures (not to mention birthmarks) are not exactly easy to find. And after a would-be Royal Heir tracks them both down, he (or she) must present them to King Mertwig - and that requires braving the dangers of Mertwig's Maze!

The Mertwig's Maze game is a lighthearted fantasy boardgame from Tom Wham, designer of numerous games published in Dragon magazine, including the classic Snit Smashing and Snit's Revenge. In the Mertwig's Maze game, you are the would-be heir to Mertwig's throne! Can you complete your quest, get past the Mystic Musk Ox in Mertwig's Maze, and reach the finish before the other players? More importantly, can you claim the throne before Mertwig passes on and the kingdom falls into the clutches of evil?

The Mertwig's Maze game contains a large game map, eight smaller maps, full-color counters, and hundreds of cards depicting hirelings, magical items, arms and armor, and random events to aid your quest - or hinder your opponents'! Mertwig's Maze game can be played by two or more players, and is recommended for ages 10 and up.

9 Four new adventure areas
These are the last four adventure areas mentioned on the Mertwig's Maze gameboard - the Colossi, the Thing that Fell from the Sky, the Boneyard, and Eagle Rock. I was greatly inspired by Val Cassotta (JustinCase), and used his draft graphics and some of his rules as starting-off points. I've tried to draw from proper Forgotten Realms lore, while keeping in the spirit of Mertwig's. Enjoy!

Made adjustments to The Last Pyramid in the Sand and the Mystic Vale, based on errata from Polyhedron Newszine #57. Reworked the colorized Tallest Tree area to look more in line with the other cards. Also included The Town (from the map).
