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 and move the Tribes into position at the right time, and the Sultanate may become yours!

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.

Five Tribes - A worker placement in reverse

With meeples already in place on the board, 'Five Tribes' requires players to cleverly select moves which maximise their end game score. The dynamics of the game board and movements made by the players mean no two games are ever the same, and the victor is more often than not, decided in the final stages of the game. Game arrived promptly, complete and brand new. Highly recommended.

Easy to pick up, fun to play, very replayable, hard to win!

It took one practice round to learn with my partner, then we played 1v1 and it was fun. Then played it with 4 players and even more enjoyable. There are so many ways of winning, and you never really know if you're ahead until the end. But it's all really light hearted so highly recommended.
