Enchanted Forest is a fun fairy tale themed board game from Ravensburger, suitable for children aged 4 and over. This is a game of strategy and memory, and we found it really enjoyable to play with the whole family.
The aim of Enchanted Forest is to be the first player to collect three treasure tokens, and this is done by journeying to the castle’s magic key and then correctly identifying under which tree on the board that particular board is hiding.
The board is designed like a forest, and each of the 3D trees hides one of the treasure tokens underneath. As you move around the board, you’re able to peek underneath the trees that you land on and then try to remember which token was underneath in case you need it later. It’s quite tricky to remember, so can be challenging but is really good fun.
All of the treasure tokens are themed with traditional fairy tales, so you may be seeking Cinderella’s slipper, or the Three Little Pig’s house, and so on. The upturned card on the top of the castle shows you which token all players are looking for at that time. Everyone is racing to get the same one, and once that’s been collected then you all move on to the next one. I really liked the fairy tale theme of the tokens, and it works very well with the game.
Enchanted Forest was a hit with my children aged 6, 8 and 9 as they enjoyed the competitive element of it, and I think it would work really well with either boys or girls.
This is a great strategy game from Ravensburger, which would be really nice for family game nights.
