This combination lets players experience classic stories like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in a whole new way. Playing as Alice (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland) and Dorothy (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz), you'll meet a colorful cast of heroes and villains. Match gems, power up, and connect and play with your friends on Facebook.
