The Enchanted Slumber ($74)
A Knight, a Troll, a Librarian and a Dragon need your help to wake a princess who has been asleep for 699 years. There’s no time to lose – as soon as she hits the year 700 – poof! That’s it! The Princess turns to dust. Can you solve the ciphers, crack the clues and put the pieces together in time? Can you do what no one else has been able to do in the last seven centuries? Have you got what it takes to be an unsuspecting Hero? In this twisting, turning take on an old fairy tale, nothing is as it seems.
This case is best for Ages 8 and up, or 6-7 with help from an adult.
