Hi, I'm leeece on
Maybe we can grab a game sometime?
What a really fun game!

Well, we had our first game of Winter Tales on Friday night. Definitely not a game for everybody: very much recommend adding the modules if you are playing with Gamer gamers as they say in the Rule Book.

But if you are playing with children stick with the base game at first.

We had a four player game, so two Winter and two Spring players. Alice, The Little Match Girl, The Tin Man and Pinocchio on the Spring side and Magniofico, Snow White, The Mad Hatter and Candlewick as the Soldiers of Winter.

It's a very different game but the players were all experienced rpg-ers so boldly got into it. We felt our way along cautiously, uncertain of the flow. But then the story seemed to start flowing and no one really got writers block.

Would Alice get to the Cemetery to hear the Song of the Frozen Robin - no, but the Little Match Girl would hear it for her and amplify it to Alice, stuck in the Mad Hatter's Asylum, and brought hope to all who heard it.

Despite this early victory, Spring's hopes failed as Snow White, after an epic hunt and struggle with Traps being sprung and Battles galore, finally stole the Tin Woodsman's heart from his reluctant chest and brought Winter down on Wintertown for good.

Everyone really got into it which was great - I can see how using the modules would make an interesting difference, with a little more competition between players
