“If there’s one thing I can tell you about Seegert, it’s that he comes up with some unique game mechanics that don’t play like anything else on my shelf. This one uses a nine-symbol “Circle of Subduing” that’s like a rock-paper-scissors mechanic, showing how any given card can be used toward defeating (and acquiring) another card. The game also adds a board, so that your location on the board makes a difference in which cards you can obtain each turn. And it’s another one from Eagle/Gryphon Games, which has consistently impressed me with the components in their games.”

FANTASTIQA is a deck-building board game set in a fantastical landscape of dark forests, mist-shrouded highlands, and frozen wastes. As you and your foes journey around the board, you will subdue strange creatures and fulfill quests. Each creature you encounter has an ability and a vulnerability. Manipulating these, you can subdue and recruit new creatures. Each creature you recruit is added to your expanding deck of cards, making its special ability your own! By combining the powers of different creatures, you can fulfill quests to score victory points and claim other special rewards. Some of the creatures you encounter carry precious gems, which you can spend to purchase powerful artifacts or to summon mythical beasts to your aid. You begin with a handful of household items, but you will grow in power as you adventure and gather allies! The board changes every time you play, so prepare for a new, exciting adventure each time you enter the world of Fantastiqa!

FANTASTIQA is easy to learn but challenging to master – a game for families and gamers alike. Additional simplified rules are included for beginners and younger children.
