  • Easy Clean-up: Just as the game sets up quickly, packing it away is a breeze. Everything fits neatly into its hardcover box, making it convenient to store and perfect for on-the-go gaming.

A Mix of Collaboration and Competition

"Spheres of Life: Mythical Forest" sets itself apart by weaving together elements of both collaboration and competition, crafting an ever-evolving tapestry of alliances and rivalries. Consider, for instance, the game's unique structure that allows to either try to go for the Noble Animals which give you points, or maybe you want to collect the Corrupted ones and sabotage another player by giving them away.

This introduces opportunities where working together might be more beneficial, pooling resources or coordinating moves, especially when faced with a shared obstacle or a formidable opponent.

Picture joining forces with a friend, collecting as many Ability Cards to leverage the Dream Phase by smartly playing out your Ability Cards' combined with your Actions. But as the endgame nears, remember that the most important aspect is to get as many points, and each unused Ability Card will reduce your points.

The continuous dance between teamwork and rivalry adds layers of depth and strategy, ensuring that every journey through the mythical forest is distinct, filled with suspense, and brimming with tales of both camaraderie and conquest.
