“It’s very straightforward really. Your goal when playing it will be to win the crown of the kingdom of Anachronia, using all your wits, skills and talents. The people will only give the crown to someone who can do three things: end the threat of the three-headed dragon terrorizing the land, unite the two warring clans that live there, and help the people of Anachronia flourish. Is that clear?”

            Gem nodded. Several of the others did too.
            “It sounds simple,” Sparks said, beside her.
            “Oh, it’s not as easy as it sounds,” Henry Word continued, “which is why there are a few other things you should know. First, beware the Wickedly Woods where the dragon lives. It isn’t the only danger there. Second, remember that you can work together, even if only one of you can rule in the end. Third, and most importantly, remember that words have power in Anachronia, finding the right words, the Ruler Words, along the way will make your time far easier.”

    Book sounds interesting. Yes, words have the power to hurt and leave a lasting impression.

    Not sure I would want to be in/part of a world that a teen suddenly became the ruler of, though. Esp a teen from a different world!
