Five Tribes: The Djinns of Naqala

"Out of all the games I have played on and around GenCon, this is by far my favorite. I don't even have a close second. And if the year would end today […] this probably would be my game of the year. It is that good!”
            Dan King - The Dice Tower

“Okay, the new Days of Wonder game is good… Really, really freaking good. “
            Eric Martin

- "I would recommend Five Tribes for game players who would like a deceptively deep experience. Simple rules with lots of juicy strategy. Big, big hit!"
            Marguerite Cottrell - Board Game Vlog

The attendees of GenCon have spoken! Five Tribes: The Djinns of Naqala is an incredibly fun, simple game to learn with plenty of room for strategy!

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

GenCon Sneak Peek Bundle from Asmodee!

Not able to make it to GenCon this year? Or, perhaps you are able to, but you still want your store to be able to share some of the excitement with your local gamers? Asmodee has got you set! The GenCon Sneak Peek Bundle (ASM CG14PR) from Asmodee will contain six games that will debut at GenCon, with official releases in the months to come. This is the perfect bundle to get your players hyped for the great upcoming games! Contained in the bundle are:

World of Tanks: Rush
A squadron of tanks rumbles across the field of battle to assault the enemy stronghold. Wily commanders recruit the strongest and smartest to carve a swath of destruction across the homelands of those who oppose them. Powerful tanks from all over the world meet to do battle in the thrilling deck-building game World of Tanks: Rush. Players start with a simple set of barracks cards, then race to build the best deck of tanks and armored vehicles. Use the abilities of your tanks to manipulate the field to your advantage, or press those tanks into service and send them to destroy the opposing bases!

Ca$h 'n' Guns
Short Tempers! Cold Cash! Hot Lead! The big heist may have been a success, but it all goes wrong when every crook wants a larger cut. With this much money on the table, bullets speak louder than words! In Cash 'n Guns, players point foam pistols at each other and try to intimidate their opponents into letting them have the largest share. The bravest crooks enjoy the most money - but only if they live long enough to spend it!

Romans Go Home
When those rotten Romans invade your homeland of Caledonia, there's nothing to give them but a proper Scottish heave-ho! Which would be alot easier if those other clans would just get out of the way! In Romans Go Home!, each player adopts a different clan of ancient Scotsmen bent on destroying Hadrian's Wall and sending the Romans back to Rome. Play your warriors strategically, then reveal them and use their special abilities to defeat the invaders - and more importantly, to show your rival clansmen that your clan is the strongest of them all!
Internal unrest brews among the court of the Abyss. The warlike Crabs bring chaos against the wise mages of the Jellyfish, while the merchant Shellfish wage trade wars against the insidious Squid politicians. Can you recruit the allies you need to master the lords of the Abyss? Venture to Abyss, where players must battle monsters, recruit allies, and sway the great lords of the deep!
Black Fleet
Barter or blast your way to victory in Black Fleet! Employ merchants to trade goods, or use your pirates to sink your enemies and steal their treasures. Or, swashbuckle your way across the Caribbean and rescue the governor's daughter from the Black Fleet!

Embark on an epic quest to build your mythical nation into the greatest empire known to mankind. Capture land, defeat monsters, and discover new technologies on the rise to greatness. Utilizing an all-new bag-building mechanic, your bag in Hyperborea contains the cubes you need to develop your nation from a fledgling upstart to a mighty civilization.
