About this deal

It’s possible an extended battle may eventually carry out across more than one adventure map (think of a dungeon crawl crawl as an example) but the group must all only occupy one map at a time.

Fans of story telling in games will find that Folklore stands out with games like Mansions of Madness 2. I found this a nice touch, especially if you’re invested in a two player game and you don’t want to control more than one hero.

I, on the other hand, chose to embrace a more passive approach, trying to work with those we encountered and only lashed out when I felt wronged.The setting is that of a mythical 15 th or 16 th century-ish European world which is filled with plenty of creepy old world monsters and villains which complicate the lives of the heroes. That pen-and-paper RPG feel is a plus for me, but it can get REALLY busy, even when using a fan-made PDF (see BGG files for more info. These don't usually make a huge difference, but they an give you (and your enemies) small bonuses that gives you something extra to think about. It’s recommended to stick to the roads when you first learn the game as, although you’ll acquire better loot and lore “off roading” per say, the monsters you’ll run across along the way are much tougher to defeat. In my earlier review of Grimslingers, I was pretty vocal that I felt the quasi-RPG narrative found in the game was its best attribute.

I can be passionate about these short comings because I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Folklore for what it already is, which is a memorable game experience that has given me things I will be talking about for years to come.The rules are broken into what I would describe as a quick start guide (designed to get you into the rules) followed by sections of more detailed reference rules you can turn to during play to flesh out any rules you pick up through the game play. They also add bonuses based on facing, outnumbering the enemy, moving out of an enemy's threat area, and more. I can only imagine it being even better with the minis and the finished artwork sitting in front of you. But be mindful, the rumors, the whispers, the stories passed down between generations are not just tall-tales and legends.
