University Games’ New Faeries & Magical Creatures Game Has Fans Aflutter at Toy Fair 2023

 New York, NY - (Sept. 29, 2023) – The fascination with faeries comes to the board game community as University Games lets its new Faeries & Magical Creatures™ board game fly in its debut at the New York Toy Fair, held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, September 30 through October 3, 2023.

Earlier this year, University Games ran a very successful Kickstarter initiative to accelerate the production of its high quality, strategy game. Faeries & Magical Creatures is now in stock and ready for its Toy Fair unveiling.

Designed by the inventor of Raccoon Tycoon, Mosaic, Railroad Rivals, and Age of Empires, and featuring the lush oil paintings of renowned artist Annie Stegg Gerard, Faeries & Magical Creatures is a beautiful, spellbinding and challengingly fun new game.

The game was tested and refined with women and with men; hobby gamers and casual game players; to make sure that the gameplay, as well as the theme and content, appeal to a wider mainstream audience than many traditional strategy games. In addition to stunning, classic fairies, the game features a centaur, unicorn, minotaur, troll and other characters that broaden its appeal.

“The Faerie Realm that is created in Faeries & Magical Creatures offers an amazing, engaging setting for a strategy game,” noted Bob Moog, President of University Games, “The passionate fan base of the mythology and folklore combined with the fans of Annie Stegg Gerard’s elegant art gives us an enthusiastic foundation for this great new game.”

According to University Games, Faeries & Magical Creatures is expected to draw a lot of interest from fans of games such as Wingspan, Splendor, Azul and Villainous, and a crossover from the Lord of the Rings art crowd.

Faeries & Magical Creatures is designed for 2-4 players, ages 10 and up, with an average playtime of 60 minutes.
