PublicationEdit

It was adapted from Mayfair's Encounters card game.[1] The base set included 450 cards.[1] The Wheel of Time expansion was pushed back to a late summer release to coincide with release of a Robert Jordan novel, but neither it or the World of Aden expansion never materialized.[1][2] The game featured exceptional art for the time.[3]

ReceptionEdit

Andy Butcher reviewed Fantasy Adventures for Arcane magazine, rating it a 6 out of 10 overall.[4] Butcher comments that "Not outstanding, then, but simple to play and fun nonetheless. If you've got a younger sibling who's expressed an interest in these 'strange games' that you play, you could do worse than sit down and play this with them for a while..."[4]
