A very funny (hold on while I feed the cat) game that takes a sideswipe at modern (to cat: no, you can't have more tuna) society. Not sure everyone will get the (to cat: close the door behind you. Honestly, is it too much to ask?) english in-jokes, oh and Safeway is called Morrison now. The game system is jgoidsfjgoidijej (to cat: get off the keyboard) reminiscent of another game about alien teenagers, what was it called? Anyway, it's very enjoyable and I recommend it to fans of Terry Pratchett and - just a minute, (to cat: that is NOT the litter tray).<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: The hidden social comments I found when playing it backwards.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Character generation (but then I'm a Munchkin player, and proud of it so there).<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

Given that the player characters are human-hating faeries with wacky powers, natural invisibility and a code of ethics that, even when followed, is minimalist, it's almost impossible for a group of players with a twisted sense of humour not to have a riotous time with this game. It's also a godsend for lazy GMs, as the actual mechanics fit on a single page and, once the players get into the spirit of the game, you hardly need to prepare more of a scenario than a few hooks to kick things off. The plot hooks in the back of the book are lively and entertaining and can form the basis of many memorable sessions.

If you're in the mood for a silly and anarchic one-off to fill in a spare evening, this is the game.<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: The fact that it kept an entire gaming group in near helpless laughter for three hours. The different breeds of faerie are particularly funny, and the Midnight Monkey is a work of genius.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Not much. I can see the limited scope for personalising characters disappointing some players, but it works perfectly for throwing together a game at very short notice.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Urban Faerie is "Changeling" with balls, what a Charles de Lint on speed or a drunk Neil Gaiman could have written. The writing is hilarious (the short stories put you in the mood instantly), the various types of fairies range from the classical to the very, very wrong. The game system is simple but efficient and the various adventure seeds are enough to get going right away. Apart fromt the humorous aspect, GRIM's vision of how the fae could have adapted to modern life is pretty realistic and even though this game is meant to be "beer & crisps", one could actually envision a long-running campaign where sex, drugs, rock & roll and class struggle combine with lucky charms to make for a truly unique fantasy gaming experience. So far my best PDF purchase ever.
