Mark, Saul and I sat down to a game of Fairy Tale. Mark and I had both played it once before, but it was completely new for Saul. He was more than a little confused at first , so we played two dummy hands (no offense intended)until he got the hang of the cards, the symbols, and what was worth what.
Saul then held his own through the game, collecting as many fairies as he could and getting the right cards to capitalize on them. Mark, however made a big score on the shadow cards, but not enough to overtake all my holy empire cards with the knight's tale, chapters one and two.
Very close though:
