Let me start by saying that the giveaway is fucking epic. 25,000 copies is a ridiculous amount to give away.
Secondly, I absolutely hated Faerie Solitaire. Not because it wasn't a good game, but for many other reasons. It's a great game for what it is: easy to learn, plenty to do, and a decent story to follow. The reason why I hate this game is that it took 12 hours for me to complete it.
I have a shitload of games, but for some reason I only play the casual indie games that I own, this was one of them. Being a card game essentially, I figured maybe 4 hours or so of gameplay to finish the story, I was very wrong. 3 times my anticipation for the same amount of story (quality and length) as a 4-hour game, and that's being generous.
The completionist in me would not let me put the game down until I finished it, unfortunately. Needless to say that I forced myself, and it was painful. A love-hate relationship I guess, but it was painful nonetheless. In the end I don't regret it though, which is something that I'm still questioning to this day.
