Designed by Bruno Cathala, Five Tribes builds on a long tradition
of German-style games that feature wooden meeples. Here, in a unique
twist on the now-standard "worker placement" genre, the game begins with
the meeples already in place – and players must cleverly maneuver them
over the villages, markets, oases, and sacred places tiles that make up
Naqala. How, when, and where you dis-place these Five Tribes of
Assassins, Elders, Builders, Merchants, and Viziers 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.
