Ravensburger Enchanted Forest - Family Game
A Magical Treasure Hunt in the Land of Fairy Tales. Let's Play! To set up the game, snap one treasure into the bottom of each tree and place the trees where indicated on the game board. Choose your playing piece and place in near the village on the game board, which serves as the starting area. The king's castle reveals the treasures you must search for throughout the forest. Roll the die to determine the distance you move, making your ways to the trees to see what treasures are hidden under them. When you reach a tree, you can look under it, making sure the other players don't see what you've found. Once you've found the treasure the king has requested, make your way to the castle so that you can announce where it is. If you're right, you continue on your journey for the next treasure. If you're wrong, you must go all the way back to the village and start over. The first player to correctly announce the location of three treasures wins!

Enchanting memory and strategy gameNov 16, 1999
My daughter has loved this game since she was six years old. The craftsmanship of the game itself is beautiful. The game-pieces and the little trees are wooden, and the illustrations are of the old-fashioned fairytale variety, very intricate and colourful. The cards are good,thick cardboard and will stand up to years of use. It looks like a very old game that one would find in an attic trunk. Winning depends on such a variety of strategy, memory, and just plain luck that a combination of ages can play concurrently and feel equally challenged. I recommend The Enchanged Forest highly. It is a feast of colours, a delight to behold and touch, and it provides good mental exercise.What more could you ask?

A flexible, imaginative, and beautifully made game.Nov 25, 1999
I am a child psychologist, and this game has been a fixture in my office for 15 years. It promotes concentration and working memory, imagination, and a fun competitiveness devoid of aggression. What I find helpful is that the rules of the game are easily adapted to suit different age groups. An outstanding game.

Enchanted All Over AgainMay 03, 2000
The Enchanted Forest was my favorite game as a child, and I can still vividly remember it as an adult. The illustrations and board design have an old-world, "once-upon-a-time" feeling, and the wooden playing pieces enhance the fairy tale image. I thought that I would never again see this unique game, and I am thrilled that it is still available. Buy this game and you, too, will be enchanted!

Find the Hidden TreasuresJan 08, 2007
By Joshua Koppel
The good King is looking for someone to take over the Throne as he has no children. He has decided to ask people to locate magic treasure to prove their worth.
The board is made up of twisting and branching paths that lead from the village, through the forest, and into the castle. Cards are used to determine what the King is looking for. The card has a scene from a popular fairy tale and a picture of the desired object. Players move their pieces through the forest looking for trees. Each of the tree pieces has a treasure hidden under it. Players landing on a tree get to secretly look at the treasure. Once they know where the desired treasure is, they can head to the castle to tell the King. The first player to successfully find three desired treasures wins the game.
Magic can also be used in the game. On certain rolls of the dice, players can teleport to any tree of their choosing, go to the castle gate, or randomly change the desired treasure card. Movement is a little different than in most games. Two dice are used but they are not added. For instance, a roll of a 5 and a 4 can get you nine spaces along but it can also get you five spaces in one direction and four in another. In this way a 4 and a 5 can be used to move one space. Thus subtraction skills become as important as addition skills. While my two kids love the game (ages four and seven) it has elements that make it palatable to the adult as well. Check it out.

Enchantingly beautiful gameJan 10, 2008
This is a beautiful, well thought out, strategic game. Ravensburger is such a great German (I believe) company for beautiful, durable, mentally stimulating games. I used to buy my own daughter (now 25) their toys at the Early Learning Center (since gone out of business) years ago and was thrilled to find them through Amazon to purchase gifts for my niece and nephew. I cannot explain what a great time my niece and I had playing the Enchanted Forest (over and over). As you read the instructions you realize the Ravensburger people thought about every little detail that could have made game play tedious or lengthy and you realize that they truly thought of everything to make it enjoyable. My niece is 8 yrs old and a bright student and we thoroughly enjoyed playing this 3 times in a row. Average game play is about 1/2 an hour (maybe it would be longer with more players). Retention and strategy are important, but it is still simple enough that they will not become annoyed. The little trees that are placed around the board (with the secret treasures hidden underneath) are absolutely precious and well made, as is the board itself (beautiful artwork)and the playing cards (no flimsy thin cards that will rip in a few weeks) but nice thick sturdy cards. If you think this game is pricey, wait till you and your child receive it, how pleased you will be and once you play, you'll realize what a bargain it is. This is one to be passed down to the next child in the family. It was very nice to read the child psychologist's review and know it is used in therapy.
