We are in medieval times. The world is a dangerous place. Dwarfs, witches and giants are on the qui vive. When we go on horseback through the dark forest we must be wise and alert. Because we can get attacked all the time.

Possible extensions

  • There is a less sexist version called Dwarf-Giant-Magican.
  • On a bigger space you can make the winning team run after the losing team and catch them. The losing team has to reach a "save area" (a certain line, a tree etc.). Those who are caught join the winning team. The game ends when all players are in one team.
  • You can do a tournament.
  • In case more facilitators are available some of them can join the groups. This is especially recommended when you play with younger children to prevent that they decide only based on their preferences for certain characters.
