Lords and Ladies: The World of Ren Faire

Most first-time Renaissance Faire goers know the awkward feeling of showing up without costume, character, or any idea of what's going on. In Ren Faire, you play characters who want to fit in at the Faire but lack the funds to do it.

The characters hatch a clever plan — the Faire is full of performers, so why not join them and make enough cash to buy costumes?

Imaginary Swordfights Galore: Gameplay Basics

In Ren Faire, players earn coins by completing challenges at a Renaissance Faire, like impromptu swordfights, Royal High Teas, or loudly complaining members of the anachronism police.

Each player can use these coins to buy costume items from the Shoppe window. Buy matching pieces to increase the number of challenges held in your hand. Place costume pieces on other players to turn their carefully planned costumes into a hodgepodge.

Ren Faire features stackable transparent costume cards that allow you to see your character's outfit (and your points too).

Be the first one to build a complete costume and win the game! Huzzah!
