Mice and Mystics is a cooperative adventure game in which the players work together to save an imperiled kingdom....as mice.
In Mice and Mystics players take on the roles of those still loyal to the king – but to escape the clutches of Vanestra, they have been turned into mice! Play as cunning field mice who must race through a castle now twenty times larger than before. The castle would be a dangerous place with Vanestra's minions in control, but now countless other terrors also await heroes who are but the size of figs. Play as nimble Prince Collin and fence your way past your foes, or try Nez Bellows, the burly smith. Confound your foes as the wizened old mouse Maginos, or protect your companions as Tilda, the castle's former healer. Every player will have a vital role in the quest to warn the king, and it will take careful planning to find Vanestra's weakness and defeat her.

Mice and Mystics will provide any group of friends with an unforgettable adventure they will be talking about for years to come – assuming they can all squeak by...
Played it with kids 9 and 11 and had a lot of fun. The story is strong and captivating, some of the characters' progress can be saved to the next chapters, making it a nice continuity. The quality of all game elements is fantastic. Even though the game is for ages 8+ I would say that it requires an adult to moderate it, a strong reader to get younger players interested in the story. First chapter will go slow as you will refer to the rulebook often to interpret the situation on the board. After that it's a smooth and fun play.
Beautiful game and story. Very engaging for younger players, great family game.
This game is perfect for adults and kids alike. Who wouldn't love the concept of cutesy mice, with little swords and suits of armour, running around a castle, avoiding other pests and the grumpy castle cat!
The aesthetic especially appeals to children, but this is far from a kids game. There is well enough depth for adults, choosing perks and levelling up your character with EXP points and purchasing better gear for your heroes.
There is even a solo mode if Covid-19 lockdown has you temporarily friendless.
As usual great, speedy service from the lads at Boardgamer.ie
This game certainly requires an adult playing due to its several moving parts, but the kids are absolutely fascinated by the mechanics and the adventure aspect of the game.
On the downside, the game's difficulty is much greater than expected, there are a lot of rules to pay attention to, and it definitely lasts over an hour.
On the other hand, though, with some simple rule-adaptations we might be able to solve the difficulty issue, and I find the game a lot less repetitive than I had heard.
Absolutley great game, but be ready to study the rulebook!
Great game. High quality components. Love the artwork. Great game to play with younger players who love the story element of the game.
Great family game.
