If I want to win our game, I first must guess your true name!

In Rumpelstiltskin, you and a friend take the roles of fey folk who have decided to engage in a name guessing contest. You must use your magical mischief to learn your opponent’s secret name while protecting your own!

Players take turns going back and forth. To take a turn, you play one card from your hand, perform its actions, and then put it in your discard pile. Then the next player takes their turn. Some cards let you try to win the game by guessing your opponent’s secret name. At that point you guess what your opponent’s secret name is (the card on the bottom of their deck). Your opponent may use a reaction, but then must tell you if you guessed right or wrong. If you guessed correctly, you win! If the card you guessed is not on the bottom of your opponent’s deck, play continues.

“A Perfect Companion to Love Letter”

At risk of writing a review longer than the game itself…

I’m a friend of the inventor (Nate Heiss), and my wife and I got to play Rumplestiltskin in it’s infancy at his kitchen table. It was great then, and it’s great now.

Rumplestiltskin is simple and fast, but still has plenty of challenge, much like AEG’s other hit, Love Letter. There’s a fun mix of deduction, bluffing, reading of your opponent, and luck. Once you have a feel for the ways the card actions interact, you’ll begin to find quick little combos to help manipulate your deck and zero in on your opponent’s secret name.
