Ethnos is a fantasy land, waiting for you to claim it! The landscape’s populated with wingfolk, giants, minotaurs, merfolk ‘tribes’ and more. Don’t let that intimidate you, though. These beasts are here to help you gain control of the six regions of Ethnos… Paoli Mori is the mastermind behind Ethnos, a game for up to six players. It’s published by CMON Limited, with a marvellous array of cards. These cover the twelve different tribes that roam the land. These cards also come in six colours, matching the six regions of Ethnos. You pick six of these twelve tribes to play with in a game. Each tribe provides different rules and scoring mechanisms. You’ll get a modular set-up each time you play! The wonderful gameplay is so simple to grasp. To partake in area majority, you’ll need to master set collection and hand management. On your turn you recruit one card among a face-up flop of cards (or draw blind from the deck). Or, you play a band of allies down as a set. You can play a set as same-type creatures. When played, you get a unique reward associated with that tribe type. Or, you can played a set as same-colour cards. These could be three different creatures, so you pick one of them for their tribe type reward. Then you get to place one of your markers down in the region of Ethnos that matches the card colour. (You pick which colour you want if you played same-tribe cards of different colours.) There’s three ‘ages’ to the game, each where the regions score points in an area majority manner. Some regions are worth more at the end of phase one than it is at phase two and vice-versa. At the end of the age you also score the sets you’ve played in front of you, with larger sets scoring more. There’s a wonderful twist in Ethnos, and that’s whenever you play a set, you have to discard the rest of your hand. The cards enter the public flop, meaning the other players will leap on them like vultures! This also counter-balances the timer mechanism. Once the third dragon card gets revealed from the deck, the age ends. After the third age, the player with the most glory points wins! Player Count: 2-6 Players Time: 45-60 minutes Age: 14+
