Players that begin The Grinns Tale are treated to an adorable introduction cinematic that both sets the stage (literally) and throws players into their own adorable avatar, "The Adventurer." It's from here that players are expected to build up a new village with a dual purpose: to protect its inhabitants from harm and take its more worthy citizens--largely made up of your Facebook friends--along with you in missions to climb to the top of a dark, evil tower filled with equally nefarious monsters and henchmen.
As you expand your little village of adorable construction paper cutouts, one companion in particular will nag you to get with the monster slaying already, a cleric (a healer) no less. Every now and then, it will be time to venture into the dark, dank halls of The Tower for some skirmishes and shiny loot. This other (and admittedly more exciting) half of the game sees players go toe-to-toe with various monsters in turn-based bouts.
It isn't any one thing that make The Grinns Tale a game we'll likely be playing for quite some time. It's all of the little things: the saccharine art style, the witty dialog, the slick battle system, the smart monetization and more. These all congeal, or rather cut and paste, together to create one brilliant arts and crafts project of a Facebook game.
