What was this board game from the 90s?

When we were younger, my sister owned this fatasy-type board game that I remembered being pretty fun...when I was 10. At any rate, I've been trying to remember its name and was hoping someone here could help me. I don't remember much about it, except that you had to go around and win mini-games to collect jewels, I think. Once you had all four (?), you could attempt to win the game (I think you were saving a princess?)

Here's everything I can remember:
  • Released in mid-late 90s
  • Fantasy-based.
  • The board itself was flat, but there were several small plastic 'structures' you placed on top of it.
  • Said structures were each a self-contained game where you could win something (a jewel, I think)?
  • One of the structures was a plastic cave opening, where the game had you spin a dial to reveal the picture of a diamond.

I'll add details if I can think of anymore.

Do you rememeber the mechanics (roll and move?)
I tried boardgamegeek but 1993-2000 fantasy gets too many results.

Could it be Mattel's Barbie Princess and the Pauper board game? I don't know when it was released, but it meets at least some of your criteria.

As far as I know, it wasn't based on an existing IP and wasn't completely girlish

That's it! Okay, so I was a bit off with the 'saving princess' thing and totally forgot it contained a unicorn. Anyway, I'm pretty impressed they figured it out based on that!

Thanks for posting that over there! I can now sleep easy knowing the name for this board game.
