FairyPrincess Islansardi's Tea Party - GenCon 2013 and 2014

One of the Lurkers in the Valley Gencon  events was "Princess Islansardi's Tea Party" by Ashley Poff.  It was held on Sunday, August 18, 2013 and again at the most recent Gencon on Sunday, August 17, 2014. The event was designed for a younger child (ages 4 to 8 or 9) paired with a parent. Both games were sold out and all of our little fairies seemed to have a great time!  Check out our photo galleries for pictures!


Player's Introduction:

Today is Princess Islansardi’s 7th Birthday; as her closest friends you are to be the guests of honor at her Birthday Tea. Tea will be served in the Queen’s Garden, set at the head of Flora Valley. The Valley is located between the Evian Mountains, Mayflower Meadow, and the Enchanted Forest. This quaint little area has been inhabited by faeries of every race for hundreds of years. Though it is generally a peaceful place to live, there have recently been some issues with some of the more sinister magical creatures that live in the surrounding areas.

As you all set down to celebrate with the Princess, you find that you may need to work together, using each of your special gifts, to save the day.


Characters: (The game has 12 players - one parent and one child of each type of fairy.)

        • Sprite Child - You are the Princess’ Cousin. You are known for a magnetic personality and your accuracy with a slingshot.
