Plaid Hat Games Previews Skill Tests in Familiar Tales

The Familiars each have their own unique skills and abilities. But that doesn't mean they're always successful in everything they do. In this preview for the upcoming adventure game, Familiar Tales, we get a look at how skill checks work in the game.

From the preview:

Hello, and welcome back to our preview series introducing our upcoming adventure game, Familiar Tales, an exciting narrative board game for 1-4 players, ages 8 and up. This is the third article in the series. You can view previous articles by going here!

 In this article, we will be focusing on the familiars’ skill card decks and how the cards are used to perform skill tests.

 In Familiar Tales, each familiar has their own skill deck made up of skill cards. When you begin the story, your familiars will each start with a deck of ten cards. Each starting deck has five generic skill cards and five that are unique to that familiar. Each card in a familiar’s starting deck will have that familiar’s portrait in the bottom right corner to easily identify them.
