Create the Adventure of Your Dreams
My Little Pony: Adventures in Equestria is for everyone, from families board gaming for the first time to deck-building enthusiasts enthusiasts looking for a challenge. Every game of Adventures in Equestria can be set to different complexity and difficulty levels thanks to customizable gameplay elements.
As you embark on your quest, players will acquire Work, Friendship, and Knowledge sugar cubes that can be used to overcome hurdles or even a final challenge to help you win the game! While you’ll gather many different types of resources throughout the game it will be sugar cubes that will help you overcome your toughest challenges!
Every game of Adventures in Equestria has the ponies facing three Hurdles and one Final Challenge. Every Hurdle requires a different contribution of Sugar Cubes from the ponies to overcome, they’ll also offer unique Rewards for overcoming them or a unique Setback if they can’t be beaten in time. Every Hurdle has a difficulty level of 1 to 3, with higher numbers being more difficult to overcome. For example, Stampede is a level 1 challenge that require 1 Work Sugar Cube per player to overcome. A nice challenge to acquaint yourself with Equestria. On the other hand, “Spike Vs. Owlowiscious” requires three sugar cubes per player to overcome and strengthens the final challenge as a setback. A level three hurdle like this is perfect for players looking for a challenge, but a level 2 challenge is a nice middle ground. Maybe players are dealing with “You.Need.Help” a hurdle that requires two Knowledge Sugar Cubes from every player and could make them discard a card if they aren’t careful.
The more Sugar Cubes players have to contribute, the harder the Hurdle will be to overcome, but harder challenges can also lead to greater rewards! Overcoming a difficult Hurdle like “I’ve Got a Much Better Idea” will even let a player gain a new Ally or Action from the Adventure Row!
(Show “You.Need.Help” and “I’ve Got a Much Better Idea”)
The rulebook recommends using one Hurdle of each level for a game, but this setup can be customized to your play group. Are you nervous about your first time in Equestria? Pick a couple level 1 Hurdles to ease yourself into the game. Looking for more of a challenge? Add a couple of level 3 Hurdles to the mix! Everyone has challenges to overcome, but in My Little Pony: Adventures in Equestria the choice of hurdles is up to you!
