GeekDad – Kickstarter Tabletop Preview by Anthony Karcz
“The art is the big draw and is very nicely done, doing a solid job of conveying each mythology’s overall feel and tone… It’s a new twist on an old mechanic, and the inclusion of unit and environmental powers add a deeper layer… Knowing the strengths of your opponent’s decks will have a big effect on your success.”

 


 

Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule!

A card game of rhyme and reason for kids of all ages

Dice Tower preview video by Tom Vasel

“It can actually be a very intense game, as you’re sitting there trying to figure out which cards to get rid of. I like the fact that it’s so small and portable, and yet packs a pretty powerful punch.”

MTV Geek preview
“Much in the way that Shrek gave families a fantasy movie with cross-generational appeal, Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! aims to be a satisfying gaming experience for players of all ages… We need all the good family games we can get, and Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! is one worth welcoming.”

Review on GeekMom
“I recommend Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! for all ages, but especially for younger kids who know how to read. [My niece] played a few times and has memorized the cards, so [she] can play faster and work on her rhyming skills. The point being, she wants to keep playing it. So a thumbs up!”

Father Geek review by Cyrus Kirby
“It’s a blast with families and a lot of fun with my little geeks, too. Beneath this game’s adorable surface lies a wonderful challenge that requires concentration, creativity, strategy, and tactics. Do give Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! a try when you have a chance.”

Dice Hate Me preview
“Dear readers, I’m here to report, On a game of mysterious sort,
It’s more magical than strange, Fairies, goblins may change,
The way you lay cards down for sport!”

Preview from Growing Up Gamers
“Wowed. That’s what I was… wowed. I sat down to play a rhyming game with cutesy art with the kids, and I ended up playing a reasonably in-depth strategy game.”

The Nerd’s Table review by J.R. Honeycutt
“This is a marvelous little card game of rhyming and matching, and it’s absolutely wonderful to play with reading-age kids and adults of all ages. More than that, it’s got some of the best art I’ve ever seen in a game, a kid’s book, a Disney movie – anywhere.”

Games With Kids review
“that was 11 days ago – and we’ve played 2-3 games EVERY NIGHT since. [My son] asks me to play with him. And that made my $12 worth every penny and then some.”

A quick review by William Reed
“I’ve been playing it with my 4-6th grade students all school year. It’s frequently chosen as a recess activity, and as a ‘Highly Educational Language Activity’ (A.K.A., a language game). It plays in about 15 minutes, and has a fair amount of strategy.”

American Geek Mom preview
“So if you are looking for that next great family or kids game, or are a teacher looking for something new and educational for rainy classroom days, look no further.”

Preview on Wired’s GeekDad
“This one is a fun game for kids (particularly those who like fairies and/or goblins), but it has some fun memory-based mechanics that can make it a good short game for adults as well. And if you love games with great illustrations, you should definitely check this out.”

The Little Metal Dog Show preview
“…the artwork is utterly gorgeous – the fairies look as if they’ve leapt from the pages of a child’s storybook, while the goblins are gloriously disgusting just as you’d expect.”

Italian preview on Gioconauta
“Meccanica semplice per un titolo che sembra tutt’altro che banale… una piccola perla nel mare dei filler.”

Review (in Chinese!) on the Synn-Solis Blog
“[Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule!] is ideal for a short time, with family or with children to play with.”
