In one faraway land, it is always winter there. Once a year, the Winter Queen announces a special competition for her court sorcerers. Using enchanted crystals they make magical ornaments and the Queen pays for them with golden coins. The one to collect the most coins at the end of the competition is to become the next Queen’s advisor.
In the abstract family game Winter Queen, you will take on the roles of Winter Queen's sorcerers, creating magical ornaments out of enchanted crystals. Each turn, you will either place a new crystal onto the board or use already placed crystals to score victory points depending on the spell books you and your opponents have.
