Local Game Developer Releases Crowd-Funded Family Game

Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule!, the card game of rhyme and reason for kids of all ages, has gone from Kickstarter dream to retail reality. Developed by Las Vegas based games studio Game-O-Gami, this charming and educational family game was successfully crowd-funded last year and is now available world-wide.
In Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule!, players put their rhyming and puzzle solving skills to the test as they compete to rid themselves of mischievous goblins and collect magical fairies. The game features innovative play mechanics by game industry veteran David Sanhueza, and beautiful illustrations by comic book artist Mike Maihack. GDFR is the culmination of David’s dream to create a game that children and adults can enjoy playing together.
The rulebook sets the appropriately whimsical mood when describing the setting, “For a long, long time, goblins and fairies have lived in a magical world right beneath our noses. If you look hard enough, you can find rings of mushrooms, called ‘fairy rings,’ which act as doors between their world and ours. Today, a gang of mischievous goblins escaped from the fairy ring, and it is up to you to send them back before they cause trouble! But an ancient spell of rhymes which transforms goblins into fairies and fairies into goblins makes this a trickier task than you might think…”
Gamers curious about Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! will be able to try-before-they-buy at the Gen Con Indy games convention. Gen Con, “the best four days in gaming”, will be held at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana, from August 15-18. Players can participate in demos of GDFR at the Game Salute booth in the exhibit hall.
Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! is now available directly from shop.GameSalute.com, Amazon.com, and your friendly local game store. More information about the game, including samples of the artwork, can be found on Game-O-Gami’s website: www.game-o-gami.com
