Common Magic

A game of simple rules and complex strategy


for 2 or 4 players ages 12+


The streets are dark and the night is quiet. The smell of fresh rain on damp cobblestones permeates the air and vies for dominance over the scent of the darker side of the city. Your path leads down a dead end ally, through an old blue door with peeling paint, and down a flight of damp stone steps. At the bottom there stands another door; black and glossy, with a simple gold circle inlaid upon it. This is it; this is where you’ll take your final exam. You’ll compete against your peers and only one will move on. Win and you’ll join the ranks of a secret society and gain hidden knowledge you can only guess at. Lose and you may never again get this chance, you may die, or worse … you may even lose “The Gift” itself. It’s time, and you are ready for greater things. It’s time to see if you’ve truly mastered the art of Common Magic.
