Product Description

Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! is a card game of rhyme and reason for kids of all ages. For a long, long time, goblins and fairies have lived in a magical world right beneath our noses. If you look hard enough, you can find rings of mushrooms, called "fairy rings", which act as doors between their world and ours. Today, a gang of mischievous goblins escaped from the fairy ring, and it is up to the players to send them back before they cause trouble! But an ancient spell of rhymes which transforms goblins into fairies and fairies into goblins makes this a trickier task than you might think... Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! is for 2 to 4 players, and has special solitaire rules for a single player. The game takes about 15 minutes to setup and play. The components consist of 20 unique cards, each card having one side representing a Goblin, and another side representing a Fairy. Each side of a card has one of 4 Symbols: a Sun, a Moon, a Mushroom, or a Frog. The names of the Fairies and Goblins are divided into 5 rhyming groups, each name ending in one of five sounds. Players begin the game with 4 cards each, goblin-side-up. 4 cards are placed fairy-side-up in the middle of the table, called the "Fairy Ring". The goal of the game is to be the first player to get rid of all their Goblins by sending them to the Fairy Ring, or be the first to obtain 6 Fairies. Players take turns adding one of their cards to the Fairy Ring. When a card is added, any other cards in the Fairy Ring which rhyme with the name on the added card are flipped over: Fairies become Goblins and Goblins become Fairies. Once all rhyming cards have been flipped over, the player then takes any cards from the Fairy Ring which match the symbol on the added card. The first player to end their turn with no more Goblins, or with 6 Fairies, wins the game. The game was designed by David Luis Sanhueza, with illustrations by Mike Maihack. Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! is the premiere title from GAME-O-GAMI.

Its a very simple game to learn and play.
Scot McDonald
A child who can read well enough to recognize rhymes can figure out this game very easily and there are variations to change up the play.
LPD
Much more fun (at least for me) than stale old games like Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders that require no thinking at all.

Very simple game and easy to learn but has a decent amount of strategy suitable for younger players. Much more fun (at least for me) than stale old games like Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders that require no thinking at all. The artwork is also downright gorgeous and charming.

Its a very simple game to learn and play. My 5 year old is learning to read and this game helps to motivate him. While the game has some rather deep strategy for a simple child's card game you don't need to know all the ins and outs to enjoy it.

I was sure this rare game would be an instant hit with my nieces at Christmas, but as far as I know they've never played it once and have shown no interest in playing it when I suggest it. They like the art, and they carry it around, but the rules apparently confuse them -- and they have no problem playing Sleeping Queens and even Jaipur!

Still, super-nifty art on the cards, and it comes with an equally high-quality metal box.

I bought this game for my 7 year old niece, and I was pleasantly surprised that it is a game that I can play with both my sister and my niece. Every one has a chance to do well, and no one is bored.

The mechanics are very straightforward, and easy to learn. The 7 year old had it figured out, and was making her own moves, without help, after just a couple of games. A typical game is short enough that the 7 year old did not get bored. She'll usually play two or three games before she wants to wander off and do something else.

Although it is fairly simple to learn, there is some interesting planning ahead and strategy to try to prevent other players from winning. You can see what cards other players have available, and anticipate what they might want to do a couple of moves in advance. I am a big gamer geek, who has played much more complex games, and I felt that despite the simplicity of the game I still had interesting decisions to make.

The art is also beautiful. My 4 year old nephew, who doesn't really get how to play the game yet, likes to look at the pictures.

In conclusion, this is a good game for mixing serious game players with not so serious gamers. Just about anyone can pick up the rules, but the thinkers will not be as bored as with many children's games (e.g. Candyland).

My daughter received this for Christmas. It is exactly what we look for in a game - simple enough for kids yet interesting enough for grownups to enjoy. I really recommend it. It's a quick play (most rounds take less than 15 minutes) and the cards are nicely illustrated. It comes in a nice quality tin. A child who can read well enough to recognize rhymes can figure out this game very easily and there are variations to change up the play. We are going to buy a few more to give as birthday gifts. It's a very welcome break from screen-based games.

This is a fun game, esp if your child likes fairies as mine does. We are a family that loves playing games, but my 7-yr old daughter is not into games, so I have been looking for games with subjects that interest her hoping to get her more into them. She received this game as a gift last week and has wanted to play it several times a day every day! The rules are fairly simple, but there is strategy involved as to which card to play so you can successfully get rid of a goblin or gain one or more fairies in your hand, so I think the recommended age of 7+ is right on. It took a few games for my daughter to understand the strategy, but now she really gets it and even taught her dad how to play. The cards are beautifully illustrated, thick and sturdy.
