Hey everyone, it’s Jamie here! Today, I’m reviewing a board game that’s brought more laughter and cries of ‘Aha!’ to my game nights than my cat knocking over my Jenga tower. Welcome to the review of Quest.


If you love the thrill of adventure and the camaraderie of teamwork, this one’s for you. But don’t worry, I’ll break it all down for you, including the highs, the lows, and the ‘Wait, what just happened?’ moments.

How It Plays

Setting Up

First, grab the game board and set it up on a flat surface. Trust me, playing on a wobbly table is like playing Jenga with a cat around – it won’t end well. Each player picks a hero and gets matching tokens and cards. Put the adventure deck in the middle and shuffle it like you’re auditioning for a card dealer role in Vegas. Place the initial quest cards face up on the board, and you’re good to go!


Players take turns drawing cards from the adventure deck and taking actions based on the cards drawn. Actions can include fighting monsters, finding treasures, and rescuing the occasional damsel or dude in distress. It’s all collaborative, so be ready to high-five your friends when you nail a quest or shake your head in disappointment when they decide to attack a dragon with a butter knife.

Winning the Game

The game ends when you complete all the main quests. Celebrate your victory like you just won the lottery or grimace together if you fail. A word of advice: don’t let luck be your guide too much, it can be a cruel mistress in this game!

Embark on an Epic Adventure with Quest

Ever felt the thrill of being the hero in a fantastical tale? That’s what you get with Quest. My friends and I spent a Saturday afternoon diving headfirst into this board game. Imagine a board game where every move counts, and strategy dances hand-in-hand with a touch of luck.

In Quest, you and your pals take on the roles of brave adventurers. Each player has their own unique abilities, which kept things fresh and exciting. One moment, I’m charging into battle with my trusty sword, and the next, my buddy is casting spells to save our bacon.

The game mechanics are smooth, though not perfect. There were moments where a roll of the dice decided our fate more than our strategy. This can be both thrilling and a bit frustrating, especially if you’ve played like a champ but still lose because of bad luck.

Overall, Quest is a blast if you love adventure and teamwork. Just beware of the occasional dicey situation (pun intended). Do I recommend it? Absolutely, but only if you can laugh off a bit of bad luck!
