Once upon a time the myriad fairy tale lands were in their infancy. Grand rulers both benevolent and malicious sought to expand their holdings of magical realms, attracting the powerful and influential Fables— royal overseers, natural leaders, and enchanted creatures — to unite under their banners. As their domains expanded so too did the stories of the Fables’ amazing exploits and adventures, which blessed the realms with the bountiful Wonders of magic, love, honour, loyal followers, and majestic castles. All the rulers saw their fortunes and glory rise, but only the greatest of them all would be declared the High Emperor or Empress over all the fairy tale lands. Will it be YOU who wins the coveted title?

Upon a Fable is a Euro-style strategy board game for 1-6 players (recommended age 10+) with a fairy tale theme. Players assume the role of a grand ruler in the fairy tale lands and start the game with one Small Realm (the Home Realm) overseen by a loyal Fable subject.

 

During the nine game rounds, each ruler seeks to expand their fortunes through a variety of methods, including: 
  • adding more realms to gain the support of additional Fables (which in turn, grant additional game actions each round); 
  • upgrading the size and influence of their realms, from Small to Large to Epic;
  • playing Ever After cards that influence the flow of the game; 
  • and gathering the valuable fairy tale resources of Magic, Love, Honour, Followers, and Castles. 

None of these paths to greatness can be ignored, for only the most well-rounded ruler shall be granted victory over the others and awarded the title of High Emperor or Empress. At the end of the game, the player with the highest total Point value—accumulated through the variety of different methods outlined above—is crowned the winner.

I bought this game to play with my wife as we both love games and I wasn't disappointed. The game mechanics are simple and if you have played any person placement games before you will quickly pick it up. The breakdown of the game into 3 stories is a nice touch which supports the fairy tale theme nicely , as do the dream and ever after cards. So far we have played as a 2 player and a 5 player game which, as you can imagine are very different. I have to say I was very pleased with the way the game played with 2 and 5 players. It wasn't arduous or slow in any of the phases and it played out in a reasonable amount of time (about an hour with 2 of us and a couple of hours with 5).
The materials are good quality but I admit I prefer the feel of wooden markers etc to card, so I may have to buy the expansion!
Overall, I would recommend this game as a good intro to person placement games,it is easier to pick up than games like Caverna, but there is still a lot of strategy that can be introduced. One comment that came up in the 5 player games was that there isn't enough opportunity to flummox your opponent! I feel an expansion purchase coming on!
