Players in Mythes et Légendes tell a story about a hero with a pre-determind happy ending. Each turn, players add a card to the storyline and add to the story.
If the story makes no sense, other players can vote against the story and the storyteller loses his turn.
When all conditions for the happy ending are met, the first player playing a card with a black marker can tell the ending and win the game.
All cards in the game use artwork used in novels published by Pocket.
There are a few special ¨magic¨ cards that can change the course of the story.
