Andor: The Family Fantasy Game

SKU:691747

Legends of Andor is a cooperative adventure board game for two to four players in which a band of heroes must work together to defend a fantasy realm from invading hordes. To secure Andor's borders, the heroes will embark on dangerous quests over the course of five unique scenarios (as well as a final scenario created by the players themselves). But as the clever game system keeps creatures on the march toward the castle, the players must balance their priorities carefully.

At the heart of Legends of Andor is its unique narrative, the linked scenarios of which tell an overarching story as the players successfully complete objectives. For each scenario, or "Legend", a legend deck conveys the plot of an ever-unfolding tale...one in which the players are the protagonists. A wooden marker moves along the board's legend track at key points during each scenario, triggering the draw of a new legend card, the introduction of new game-altering effects, and the advancement of the story's plot. In the end, the players must endeavor to guide the fate of Andor through their heroic actions, bringing a happy ending to their epic fantasy tale.

Will their heroes roam the land completing quests in the name of glory, or devote themselves to the defense of the realm? Uncover epic tales of glory as you live the Legends of Andor!

Fun game across ages

I got this game for my nephews, who are 6 and 7. I thought it would introduce them to fantasy-type games and potentially lead to them wanting to play more of these types of games. In general, they enjoyed playing the game, and the first night we played 3 separate games. Once you learn the rules, the games only last about an hour tops, so it does not drag on too long. They really enjoyed rolling dice and uncovering cards and seemed to want to find the wolf cubs. Having different quests for different games really adds some nice variety, especially for adults. The game is colorful and the game board is filled with little challenges. Unusually for games they play, you can actually lose. In fact, the three of us lost our first two games. I think this is not really a problem because the games are short, and even when we won, it was a bit of a challenge still. So the feeling of victory is hard-won and all the more exciting.
My big complaint with this game is the sheer amount of pieces and how easily it is to lose things. The kids get very excited for things, and their arms (and legs!) often knock things around on the board. I had the game initially set up on a table, which is a bad idea. Pieces fall over, hide under rugs, get stuck to clothes, etc. It was only the next day that we found the last missing piece had the board completely filled with all the pieces again. Thus, you must play this game in a large, open space with few hiding spots, as things will inevitably get scattered.
So if you can keep the game board together it is really fun. It requires both smart individual choices, luck, and some cooperative strategy. Compared to highly competitive games this one allows some degree of teamwork, which I found enjoyable. Definitely worth exploring.
