From the Publisher...
The game consists of several rounds in which players use unusual worker placement mechanisms (players simultaneously prepare different sized groups of imps in order to play sooner than others). To become the leader of imp family that has just started a new business, they will have to prepare themselves for the uneasy task of raising creature cubs and pleasing their different needs represented by cards in order to sell them as grown scary creatures to Dungeon Lords. In the meantime they also attend various contests in which they show off their pets, scoring additional points.

|This game box is nice & heavy - filled with well illustrated game boards, plastic imps, wood bits, plastic cubes & a whole bunch of different "petz"-- The game plays best with 4. The gameplay goes fairly quickly after the first couple rounds & as long as you don't have players who are prone to AP, about 2 hrs should be enough for a game- not the lightest or heaviest of strategy games- best for a moderately experienced player minimally who likes a little bit of meat to their games. Highly enjoyable! (even after losing badly due to the overeating, overpooping pet fiasco!)
|A shockingly deep game despite its cutesy look. There are a ton of decisions to be made....how to group your workers, where to send them, how to arrange your petz, how to prepare for the explosive personalities of your petz, how to react when your petz surprise you...... all of it combines into one of the most thematic and enjoyable gaming experiences of all time!
|Love the theme and style on this game and it plays well too! Growing and selling your petz really feels like you're struggling with another creatures needs. I highly recommend.
