This game is one part puzzle, one part chess, and all parts fun. An inventive little midevil building game where you take over large streches of rural France using the strategic placement of Meeples, which is probably one of the funnest words to say in gaming.
This game is a great gateway game into deck building games. Think of Magic the Gathering and Pokemon card games but instead of having to go take out a mortgage on your house for new cards instead you get them all at once in a box and the players build their decks in the game itself. Incredibly addicting with beautiful artwork.

Run For Your Life Candyman
For the sadist in us all, there's Run For Your Life Candyman. It's a subversion of the usual Candyland game with a twist: Whenever you pass an opponent, you have the chance of damaging them and tearing off one of their gingerbread limbs. As the pieces fly it not only becomes a race to the finish line but a battle to the death. This is the real Hunger Games
|Can be played using normal Candyland rules|
|I have no idea what the bananas have to do with words..|
