“Fantasy Quest” card game

Fantasy Quest Cover

About the Game:
This is a BGE digital conversion of the “Fantasy Quest” card game, by Tristan Hall (aka Ninjadorg). “Fantasy Quest” is a non-collectable card game with 378 cards. Note that this conversion is of the original (beta?) version of the game that first appeared on BoardgameGeek. The game has since had a very successful Kickstarter and will be published shortly, but the game design has been substantially changed/improved, as have the physical components.

Game Summary:
A card game of high fantasy with a gothic edge, where 1-4 players, working individually or together, must adventure forth to develop their heroes and save the land from a growing evil. In their journey through a dark world of magic and peril, they will visit strange places, stranger people and overcome powerful enemies in their quest to discover mysterious artifacts, mystical spells and ancient treasures. Follow each hero’s tale from modest beginnings through an epic story to an exciting climactic battle for the fate of the world. Time is of the essence because with every night that passes, the land slowly “Falls into Gloom” and terrible things begin to happen.

Fantasy Quest can be played either Competitively or Cooperatively, and is also perfectly suited for Solo play.

The following quotes are what some gamers on boardgamegeek.com had to say about this game (in reference to the original print-and-play game, of course):

“This game sets out to distill an epic fantasy RPG into a game playable in under 2 hours. In this, it succeeds magnificently.”
