Description

Five Tribes: The Djinns of Naqala - Invoke the old Djinns, move the Tribes into position at the right time and the Sultanate may become yours!

Crossing into the Land of 1001 Nights, your caravan arrives at the fabled Sultanate of Naqala. The old sultan just died and control of Naqala is up for grabs! The oracles foretold of strangers who would maneuver the Five Tribes to gain influence over the legendary city-state. Will you fulfill the prophecy?

Invoke the old Djinns, move the Tribes into position at the right time and the Sultanate may become yours!
A bit more of a 'Gamer's Game' than Days of Wonder's standard fare, Five Tribes builds on a long tradition of German games with wooden Meeples in a unique twist on the Worker Placement games genre. It's when, how and where you dis-place Tribes of Assassins, Builders, Elders, Merchants & Viziers that will determine your victory or failure!

As befitting a Days of Wonder game, the rules are straightforward and easy to learn. But? devising a winning strategy will take a more calculated approach than our standard fare. You need to carefully consider what moves can score you well and put your opponents at a disadvantage. You need to weigh many different pathways to victory, including the summoning of powerful Djinns that may help your cause as you attempt to control this legendary Sultanate.

Five Tribes is for 2 to 4 players, ages 13 and older and takes approximately 40-80 minutes to play.
