Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

In Mice and Mystics players take on the roles of those still loyal to the king – but to escape the clutches of Vanestra, they have been turned into mice! Play as cunning field mice who must race through a castle now twenty times larger than before. The castle would be a dangerous place with Vanestra's minions in control, but now countless other terrors also await heroes who are but the size of figs. Play as nimble Prince Collin and fence your way past your foes, or try Nez Bellows, the burly smith. Confound your foes as the wizened old mouse Maginos, or protect your companions as Tilda, the castle's former healer. Every player will have a vital role in the quest to warn the king, and it will take careful planning to find Vanestra's weakness and defeat her.

Mice and Mystics is a cooperative adventure game in which the players work together to save an imperiled kingdom. They will face countless adversaries such as rats, cockroaches, and spiders, and of course the greatest of all horrors: the castle's housecat, Brodie. Mice and Mystics is a boldly innovative game that thrusts players into an ever-changing, interactive environment, and features a rich storyline that the players help create as they play the game. The Cheese System allows players to hoard the crumbs of precious cheese they find on their journey, and use it to bolster their mice with grandiose new abilities and overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.

Mice and Mystics will provide any group of friends with an unforgettable adventure they will be talking about for years to come – assuming they can all squeak by...

14 Character Campaign Envelopes
In order to speed up our game setup / cleanup, I've started using these envelopes. Each character has one, where they can store their card, starting equipment, carryover equipment, initiative card, and taken abilities inside. Unclaimed, character specific abilities store in slot on the outside of the envelope. Art and story text copyright plaidhatgames.com. FAQ bits from a few different files on boardgamegeek.com

4 Karty pomocy - Magia i Myszy
Karty pomocy do gry Magia i Myszy. Musisz pamiętać, że istnieje sporo zasad, które nie są uwzględnione na kartach pomocy (np. specjalne zasady dotyczące poruszania się w rwącej wodzie oraz zakaz wykonywania w niej darmowych akcji itp.). Karty są zaprojektowane w ten sposób aby krok po kroku wykonywać czynności na nich opisane. Dodatkowe informacje: Polska instrukcja zawiera kilka istotnych (i kilka mniej istotnych) błędów. Karty pomocy zawierają więc zasady zgodne z angielską (oryginalną) instrukcją (i oficjalnym FAQ). Uwaga! Karta „Walka sługusów” zawiera zasadę niezgodną z polską instrukcją. Angielska instrukcja w tym przypadku również jest niejasna, ale można ją interpretować dwojako. Została przetłumaczona przeze mnie „na zdrowy rozsądek”. Napisałem prośbę do autora gry...
