Game target: You are a wizard who travels through the mysterious forest of Magalon in search of the magic items which allows you admission to the prestigious "Council of 11".

The aim of each player is to return to the starting place after collected the 3 items.

Comments: My edition is from 1998. The designer is Wolfgang Kramer.

A game with quite easy rules and very challenging. The luck is narrowed down to dice throws to move the Giant by the one who plays last in each turn. It's definitively better on 4 players, as it otherwise more or less will be a 1 against 2 game. It will also be easier to get the one in the lead. I'm just afraid that the setup makes the games too similar.
