Product Description

Once again, our unfortunate friends find themselves foreigners trapped within the frightful Fortress Furor of the fanged Prince Fieso who would, with felicity, see them flounder and faint. These fine fighters could feasibly face their finish in this forbidding fortification, whose fearsome floors even now flow frighteningly from beneath their feet as the famished Furunkulus forages the fringes, fixing to feast on the foreigners' flesh. Forthwith, must our fighters fashion their flight from this foulest of fates! But what’s this? By the light of their fallow and flickering flares, our friends find the depths fraught with the most furious of fiends and the fiercest of freaks! With fleet feet, the fearless foreigners follow these ferocious fellows through the fortress, with its multifarious footpaths and their frustrating forks, forging fervently forward toward freedom and fame. Our fighters must not falter from whatever feud or fracas would foil their function: to finally furnish the forlorn Faerie Fabula her freedom from feckless Fieso's fists!

Incomprehensible Rules
June 23, 2007

This game has a rare combination of features: rules that are so badly organized and written that it is almost impossible to get through them, but which nonetheless make it crystal clear that this is not a game worth playing.

(Note: this refers to the English rules found in the edition published by RGG, which is notorious for rules "translation" snafus. It is possible that the original 2F edition has clearer rules. But there's still nothing to recommend this game.)
