Moonstone is a whimsical fantasy skirmish game for 2-4 players, which sees you leading fairytale inspired characters across the dark lands in search of precious Moonstones. Players compete to collect as many stones as possible before the breaking of the dawn, with bloody combat an almost inevitable outcome with such a prize in sight.
