Designed by Bruno Cathala, Five Tribes is the new big box board game coming from Days of Wonder this fall. Five Tribes is a bit more of a “Gamers’ Game” than Days of Wonder’s standard fare. The game builds on a long tradition of German games with wooden Meeples in a unique twist on the Worker Placement game genre. While the rules are quite easy to learn and understand, implementing a winning strategy will take a calculated approach. In this worker displacement game, you score by carefully maneuvering the Five Tribes of Meeples over the tiles that make up the ancient city-state of the Sultanate of Naqala. You need to look ahead to determine what moves will not only position you to score well, but put your opponents at a disadvantage. It’s when, how and where you dis-place the Five Tribes of Assassins, Elders, Builders, Merchants & Viziers that will determine your victory or failure!
The game will be available worldwide in September, 2014. We expect to have a limited number of copies available to sell at Gencon in August. Also the game’s designer, Bruno Cathala will also join us at Gencon to demo the game and be available for interviews.
