HOW TO PLAY QUINTANGLED
Game board set-up is easy and fast: place cards and tokens in their appropriate places as marked on the game board.
You will begin by rolling the eight-sided die to determine the Character you will assume as a Knight, Lover, Jester, Healer, Dreamer, Sage, Monarch, or Priestess. Journey to The Wizard’s Castle, meet the Wizard and receive Magical Aid. Then step onto your chosen path to adventure, entering the magical, mythical and sometimes perilous realm of Quintangled.
Along the way, you’ll meet Oracles, helpers and hinderers, and encounter perils and pitfalls. You will learn how choices and the landscape of the game will transform your character. In the first half of the game, your character will traverse the winding paths of the world of Quintangled as you visit all four element corners, and perform your Shadow Act. You will then enter The Cave of Darkness, meet your animal ally, obtain your character’s talisman of power, and perform Heroic Feats as you prepare to journey home. You will also encounter unexpected aid, gain wisdom, and earn points to become heroic and fulfill your character’s quest.
Quintangled is based on many of the elements of Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, which is also the standard template on which some of the highest grossing Hollywood films have been built. In Quintangled, the archetype characters are called away from their ordinary life to embark upon a journey along a five-sided path — a quintile — where they must battle forces that could destroy them. Whether male or female, each game character must accomplish particular tasks and gain wisdom along the way as they travel their path to return home. Success is largely a function of your choices, your chosen strategy, the opportunities presented by your rolls of the die, and the elements of Fate and Magical Aid, as your and your fellow players vie to win the game.
HOW TO WIN THE GAME: Unlike most games, where the first player to arrive home wins, in Quintangled once the first player returns home, players tally their points to learn who has earned the most points through accomplishing feats, overcoming perils, and obtaining Wisdom cards. Part of the strategy of the game is to keep an eye on what your opponents have achieved!
