The Gate- A Game Of Myth And Magic Review And ~~Giveaway~~

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensated for this post. I was given the game for review purposes.**

Ben and I are nerds!!  Our idea of a fun night together is sitting down and playing board games.  We have been doing this for years!!  We would have all night game competitions with our best friend Chris.  We usually played Risk.  A very strategic game that involves a lot of concentration.  

I hate to loose, so I was always a spoil sport when we played.  Ben and Chris would always gang up on me to knock me out first just so I would whine!!

We have now found a new all night game to add to our arsenal!!  The Gate Game is very challenging.  It comes with a 28" x 24" Game Board, 333 Cards, 8 Custom Pieces, 10 Custom Dice, 82 Colored Glass Currency, Beginner & Advanced Rules.

We started out with the beginner version.  There are three dimensions you need to travel through to get to the gate.  Along the way you will battle monsters, and make decisions to battle your friends to win cards.

There are a couple different cards that you will use throughout the game.  The main cards are the Gate Cards and there are also three different types of Encounter Cards (green, blue and red)  The gate cards can give you things like treasure, and even help you send your opponents to the dungeon.  The Encounter Cards are the ones that tell you how to fight and what happens.  You fight other players, monsters and you even fight in the Pitt to win the prizes in it.  

The custom playing pieces are very well detailed and well made.  We thought they looked great.

It did take Ben and I a little while to figure out the game.  There are a lot of rules and a lot of different things going on all at once.  When they say this game is for 11 years and older, I agree.  

If you have a person on your shopping list who loves mythical realms and games, this would make a great gift!!

I am excited to be able to give one lucky reader their very own game thanks to Oofdah! Games.
