Tinderbox Tales expands on the setting for The Brigade, with this three-game set being presented like a boxed set of books. The games included are:
• The Barmaid's Tale
Set in the "Rat Catcher's Rest", this is a social game for 4-6 players. Players assign blame to each other for the failure of a recent quest while literally "passing the buck".
• The Trader's Tale
Play out the events of one of the most famous days in the history of the merchant's district. "Ruby Twosday" saw every adventurer in Tinderbox racing to equip themselves for the quest to rescue the Princess making a lot of traders very rich in the process. This resource management game challenges 2-4 adventuring agents to trade carefully to be the first to build and outfit their team for the quest.
• The Damsel's Tale
Damsel etiquette will tell you that you can never really trust a knight to save you properly, but as long as your dragon needs feeding, you should let them have a go. In this two-player asymmetrical strategy game of hide and sneak, the dragon is trying to alert his mother to the presence of a cunning knight sent to steal from the horde.
Tinderbox Tales is the second release from Red Genie Games set in "The Vague World".
