Why they'll love it
This charming game was invented by 6 year old Miranda Evarts who was finding it hard to fall asleep one bedtime. And there are some lovely enchanting details in her creation. For instance you can't hold the Cat Queen and Dog Queen in the same hand, they just don't get on! A knight card let's you steal a queen, but if you have a dragon card it will stop the knight in his tracks. A sleeping potion puts a queen back to sleep, unless you have a wand card . . .
Why you'll love itA fun game for different ages to play together, great for sibling groups.
We have found this game a great move on from more simple pursuits like Uno. When young players are able to process a few more rules and want a fresh challenge.
Can help memory, strategic thinking and basic maths skills. Good travel size.
