Enchanted Forest

Day 46 - Enchanted Forest
Designed by Michel Matschoss and Alex Randolph

This enchanted game won the Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year) award in 1982. Made for 2 to 6 players, this game only takes about 20 to 30 minutes to play and is great for kids. I grew up with this game and it was definitely one of the favorites. The players embark on a journey into the Enchanted Forest seeking out hidden treasures to impress the king. Durring the game players roll the dice and have to move the exact number on each die. The movement is split among the two die and it really helps kids with counting and planning. When a player lands on a blue tree space, the player can look at the picture hidden underneath. Players will need to memorize where the different treasures are to declare to the king where they are hidden. When a player rolls doubles he/she has the option to use magic. The player can trasnport to any blue tree space, can travel up to the castle, or if already across the bridgs can be transported to the castle to make a declaration. The game is very well done with nice components and a great theme. A fun memorization game that is educational and deserves the Spiel des Jahres honor and that is How Lou Sees It.
