Mice and Mystics

Mice and Mystics is a cooperative role-playing board game, heavily inspired by Dungeons and Dragons. It’s simpler and more accessible than its sword and sorcery predecessor, offering a mix of story-telling and dice rolling. A spiritual successor to games like HeroQuest, with action akin to
