High Fantasy Games I Like Despite Not Liking High Fantasy

I'm not a huge fan of high fantasy games, but sometimes their tolerable. Updated 4/25/17.
  1. Dungeons & Dragons: Rock, Paper, Wizard
    This game doesn't come out until next year, but it looks interesting. Thehe players cast spells using a rock/paper/scissors/lizard/Spock system.
  2. Catacombs & Castles
    A dexterity wargame. Return of the King meets marbles. This is a standalone expansion for Catacombs 3rd Edition.
  3. Small World
    The elves, orks, trolls, and everyone else need breathing room! The gimmick is that you mix up the powers and species. Hill Ratmen vs Dragon Master Amazons vs Mounted Merfolk... and so on.
  4. 5 Minute Dungeon
    A highly-abstracted real-time fantasy adventure. Sorta like cooperative go-fish meets D&D. It CAN be app-driven, but the app is most just a timer.
  5. Darkness Comes Rattling
    WAY different than your typical fantasy settling. The tribal art and theme set it apart. Unlike most games, this is about saving your people, not just scoring glory and treasure.
  6. Iconica
    A lightweight Fantasy dice-rolling game. Beautiful artwork.
  7. Vast: The Crystal Caverns
    This is an interesting little Dungeon Crawler. You can play as a Knight, a Thief, an entire horde of goblins, or the cave itself. Due out soon.
  8. Inn Fighting
    A game of tavern brawling set in the Dungeons & Dragons world. I'm not sure this game is still in print, but you can still pick it up on Amazon.
  9. Stronghold
    It's basically the castle battle in The Two Towers, but lasts weeks instead of hours.
  10. Quarriors
    The first dice-pool-building game. It's like a mashup of Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, and craps.
  11. Knuckle Sammich
    From the creators of Kobolds Ate My Baby. A game of cannibalistic sandwich making.
  12. Mythe
    In this disgustingly adorable micro game, you play mice trying to steal back the Sacred Cheese from an evil dragon.
  13. Dragoon
    It's a typical fantasy conquest game, but the cloth map, metal dice, and the component design make it interesting. I just wish the card art was bigger.
  14. Fall of Magic
    A storytelling/roleplaying game hybrid. Centers around a hand-made scroll that plots the game. Not really re-playable, but it's good for new gamers.
