I’ve owned Once Upon a Time… for a few years now, but didn’t get around to playing it until recently. And while it is a game, so someone does win, winning is secondary to game play.
Each player has 7 cards with fairy tale elements on them, and one or two cards with endings. The goal is to tell a story that uses all your elements and leads to one of your Happily Ever Afters. Other players have cards that will let them interrupt and take over the story, steering it toward their endings, creating a convoluted (but fun) tale.
