Fantastiqa is a deck-building strategy game set in a fantastical landscape of dark forests, mist-shrouded highlands, and frozen wastes. As you and your foes journey around the table, you will subdue strange creatures and fulfill fabulous quests.
Each creature you encounter has both an ability and a vulnerability. Subdue it and recruit it as an ally! A subdued creature is added to your expanding deck of cards, making its special ability your own! A defeated Enchantress will wield her beguiling charms to help you overcome wandering Knights. Knights will in turn subdue Dragons, adding their fiery breath to your cause. Combining the powers of different creatures and fulfill curious quest: send forth your Rabbits of Unusual Size to Nibble Through the Violin Strings of the Violent Vampire Volnar! Or deploy a party of web-slinging Spiders to String a Bridge Across the Chasm of Chaos!
Some of the creatures you encounter carry precious gems, which you can spend to purchase powerful artifacts or summon mythical beasts to your aid. You begin with a few household items, but you grow in power as you adventure and gather allies! By completing quests you score victory points and claim other special rewards. The world of Fantastiqa changes every time you set up the game, so prepare for a new, exciting adventure each time you play.
Fantastiqa is easy to learn but challenging to master – a game for families and serious board gamers alike. Additional simplified rules are included for beginners and children.
