A decade in active development, this game is a sequel to author Cliff Johnson's 1987 Macintosh meta-puzzle game The Fool's Errand. In keeping with its predecessor, it features a series of seventy-seven varied Bewitchments (word puzzles, number puzzles, logic puzzles, etc.) in a framing setting inspired by the Tarot deck of fortune-telling cards, featuring a fantastical geography (a map given the Fool by the Moon) that is gradually fleshed in as puzzles are completed, leading to the solution of an overarching ur-puzzle.
