As you journey across the mysterious land of Luma, you encounter a nomad
camp. You join them around the fire and share in the strange potion that the
great Shaman passes around. The stories told by those around the campfire seem
odd and disjointed, but with cleverness and insight you may make sense of the
many legends of Luma…
In the dreamlike board game Nomads , two to five players each collect disjointed pieces of stories. As you gather the story tiles, you can exchange them for a Song or Legend that makes sense of the seeming lyrandom fragments. In the end, the player with the most points gleaned from Song and Legend cards and Opal moon tiles – and with the least number of leftover Story or Joker tiles – wins!
Although it shares the same setting as Oh Captain! (also from Ludonaute), Nomads is a standalone game. You do not need the other game to enjoy this one – though having both can add further richness and depth to each!
