Fantasy Kingdoms Basics (4 out of 5)
Play free fantasy games on Facebook with Fantasy Kingdoms. This game is just like the popular farming game Farmville, except it uses fantasy items. Instead of crops you are creating magic which turns into mana, the games currency. You can use mana to buy anything in the games store. Trees can be grown for mana and fantasy creatures like unicorns can be raised which can then be sold for mana. The game has bright graphics and is a nice change from growing fields of strawberries or corn. You can also collect many achievements in the game and complete quests for experience. In the game you can also craft spells to expand your storage capacity or grant you a new building.
