Fantaji is an amazing vehicle for those who are not only well versed in table top gaming, but those who are interested in getting started. I tried the usual D&D engines with friends in college, and found the game too dependent on the GM and their personalities.
If you are questioning whether or not you want to get involved in this gaming world, this is the game for you. After my terrible D&D experience, I was convinced I could not enjoy a table top game. But, my partner was really into them, and we tried this game - it changed my entire perspective.
If you're not terribly interested in mathematics, you can still play and do well with Fantaji. Of course a little bit of mind math will make moves easier to calculate in this game, but generally you don't need to memorize much.
I usually try to explain this games to others by saying it's more like directing your own scene in a movie - what is your character doing in relation to everyone else's character? Once you've determined what you are doing, you can use drama and skills to gain dice. It's much more enjoyable than working backwards.
If you've ever had a bad experience with table top gaming, let this game change your mind.
I highly recommend this game to new players, veterans, musical theatre enthusiasts, gamers, model United Nations diehards, and public radio producers. There is really no downside to this game; if you have any sort of imagination, this is the game for you.
