Fickle by BARD Games

Who will wear the Fairy Crown? The harvest moon is on the rise. The Fairy Families gather for the Ritual of Ascendancy. It is time to renew alliances and appoint a new Queen-- which should be you. Building an Alliance between the Fairy Families is key to becoming the new Queen. All Fairy desire representation in your council, and offer their unique abilities to aid you in securing the crown. Use their powers wisely to achieve a balanced alliance! The Fickle board game is designed by Glenn Cotter and features the legendary fairy art of Amy Brown.


Game Overview

Fickle is an inverse set collection card game for three to five players. Players gather Favor points by collecting the Fairy cards. Each round players trick their opponents by creating a "Peek or Pass" press your luck line up of Fairies. The player at the end of 5 rounds with the highest Favor value wins. By choosing which Fairy decks to add to your game, Fickle can be customized to match your play style; focus on scoring, direct actions, bluffing and deceit, and social affects.
