Game Overview

Far away from the big cities lies a mysterious forest. Thousands of years ago, there lived tribes that worshiped the spirits of the woods. Even now, ruins of their sanctuaries, conquered by ivy and amarbel, can be found among the trees. Rumour has it that those spirits have always been benevolent and sometimes leave their guests precious gifts: a piece of amber here, a bluebird’s feather or an ancient figurine of some outwardly stone there…
Now it’s your time to head out to the magical forest, earn respect of its guardians and collect all their gifts! Step by step the players will explore the magical forest to gain gifts from its spirits: four-leaf clovers, bluebird’s feathers, crimson crystals, an amber pieces with butterflies inside, and stone figurines. The first player to gather 5 different gifts wins the game!
