We all remember the days where someone read us a fairytale at night.

And we dreamed of being a mighty hero that would defeat all villains and evil in their way. Fairy-tales have an important place in our lives. They nurture our soul, inspire us to fight and remind us that no matter how dark life gets, there’s always hope. “This is why 12 Realms was created”, says Ignacio Corrao, designer of the game. 12 Realms is a fairytale themed cooperative game , which is constantly expanding. So if you ever wanted to be a hero, this is your chance. You can be anyone that you want, from Sinbad to King Arthur to Red Riding Hood, Nutcracker, Snow White, Hansel & Gretel, Pinocchio and Robin Hood, fight the Dark Lords and save the Realms.

With the core game and two expansions already established, 12 Realms provides multiple gameplay options, including single player campaigns, cooperative, competitive, PVP, and master player modes. “The artwork and miniatures are simply out of this world”, says George, one of Mage Company’s playtesters. You can see it for yourselves in the Kickstarter campaign that the company is running now for its latest expansion Bedtime Story. 1-7 players can enjoy this fantastic game and become whoever they want: this is the only miniature game worldwide that includes so many different heroes and characters inspired from the fairy-tales.

If you are a family with kids, or just wish to save the world with your friends, then this is the perfect fit for you. It’s a cooperative game that brings people together, and reminds you that magic exists in our world. Don’t miss out on the campaign
