Magic Realm is a
fantasy board game from Avalon Hill,
a company which was purchased by Hasbro Interactive some
years back. The game involves a pseudo-random setup scheme which nicely
creates the atmosphere of a role-playing game, without the necessity
of a game master.
CAN I GET IT?
It is now impossible
(as far as I know) to order the game, though you can still find a few
for sale on ebay,
and I'm sure other places.
DO I PLAY?
The original rules
to the game were a bit confusing, and it wasn't until the release of the 2nd
edition rules that the game mechanics made any sense. The rules are organized
into four "encounters" which allow new players to learn the game in stages.

the game even easier.
