I purchased Fairy Tale for my nephew for Christmas since it had received good reviews. I wanted to get him something that wasn’t already on my radar so it wouldn’t seem like a game for me. He couldn’t wait to play it, but I wasn’t up for it Christmas day because of the strong smell the cards possess.

He aired it out and played it a couple of times before he taught it to me. The symbols seemed a little daunting at first, but I caught on quickly.

In our third game, we decided to try out the partnership rules. By this time, I was seeing the types of strategies some of the players were using. I partnered up with my boyfriend and I knew he liked to gather up the multiplier cards, such as the Homesteaders. This made for an interesting game because I knew I could safely pass him multipliers and I could grab the story cards. My brother-in-law and my nephew are the types that tend to diversify themselves a little more so they were both trying to do a little bit of everything. This caused them to struggle with which cards to pass and which cards to keep. My boyfriend and I ended up almost doubling their score for an easy win.
