Z-Man Games has announced Narabi, a cooperative card game for 3-5 players. The cards in Narabi range from 0 to 9, along with blank cards. Each player receives a subset of the cards, along with a “restriction card” which governs how the cards can be swapped with other cards. Players can ask each other yes or no questions in an effort to deduce the various movement restrictions and arrange the cards in numerical order in as few turns as possible.
“In Narabi, numbered stone cards will be randomly sleeved together with restriction cards that control how a stone moves. Players must exchange stones, working toward the correct arrangement one move at a time while still following the rules on each stone.”
With numerous card combinations and rule variations, Narabi appears to offer varying degrees of difficulty in a relatively quick playing card game.
