Once upon a time there was the happy ending: "... and so the valiant prince slew the evil dragon and saved the beautiful princess!" But in Dark Tales land it's not always that way, and not all live happily ever after. In the deep woods you can meet disturbing creatures who reject the light, ready to deceive with enchanted items and powerful curses. Dark Tales is a game in which the interaction between cards and magic items is the key to success: a character, an event or a sword used at the right times can determine the fate of the game. And thanks to the different setting cards, the items you collect change their power from game to game.
