Five Tribes is available!

Five TribesCrossing 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, 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, oasis 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.


The game premiered mid-august at GenCon in Indianapolis and the first reviews in the press are highly positive and enthusiastic:

“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

“This game blew my expectations away, [it] is going to be talked about for a long time”

Dan King – The Dice Tower

Five Tribes is beautifully illustrated with 30 Tiles depicting the Sultanate of Naqala, as well as 22 Djinn and 54 Resource cards. The game also comes with over 100 wooden pieces, including 90 meeples representing the 5 Tribes, plus Palm Trees & Palaces.

Designed for 2 to 4 players (ages 13+), Five Tribes takes 40-80 minutes to play and is available now in better games stores worldwide and from the Days of Wonder webstore. Order your copy today!
