Ravensburger Enchanted Forest - Family Game
Ravensburger Enchanted Forest - Family Game

A Magical Treasure Hunt in the Land of Fairy Tales. Let's Play! To set up the game, snap one treasure into the bottom of each tree and place the trees where indicated on the game board. Choose your playing piece and place in near the village on the game board, which serves as the starting area. The king's castle reveals the treasures you must search for throughout the forest. Roll the die to determine the distance you move, making your ways to the trees to see what treasures are hidden under them. When you reach a tree, you can look under it, making sure the other players don't see what you've found. Once you've found the treasure the king has requested, make your way to the castle so that you can announce where it is. If you're right, you continue on your journey for the next treasure. If you're wrong, you must go all the way back to the village and start over. The first player to correctly announce the location of three treasures wins!
