Good Games Publishing has announced two new games that will premiere at Gen Con: Fairy Season
and Fluttering Souls
. Both games will release into the trade following the show.
In Fairy Season
, players are fairy hunters sending their bands of goblins into the forest to catch as many of the winged creatures as they can. In this trick-taking card game, players can use cunning goblin traps to capture tricks, hoping to score points by capturing fairy royalty.
Fairy Season was created by freshman Australian game designers Gavin Jenkins and Dan Fish. The game comes with 100 cards and is intended for 3 to 5 players, ages 10 and up. Games take about 20 minutes to play. MSRP is $17.99.
Inspired by a Japanese myth about butterflies that carry the souls of the dear departed, Fluttering Souls
is a set-collection card drafting game designed by Joel Lewis of Australia. Players take turns selecting cards from the tableau, scoring points based on the sets they collect. The first player to win three rounds of play wins the game.
Fluttering Souls includes 36 cards and 5 tokens. It is recommended for ages 13 and up, and takes about 15 minutes to play. MSRP is $12.99.
