Ethnos

Ethnos

Almost Middle-earth

In a nutshell, Ethnos is a game about a mystical land (called… Ethnos) consisting of 6 different kingdoms. There are 12 tribes living in this land, and your goal is to use them to raid and control as many of the kingdoms as possible. I suspect the name of the game comes from “ethnic” + “-os” (as in “Westeros”). There are 12 tribes, although during the set up phase, you randomly draw 6 tribes to play with. Each creature has a different special ability, so this actually keeps the game fresh each time you play. Read more about Ethnos

But then, you notice people running past you – they climb into the boat and start paddling away from the island. Read more about Survive: Escape From Atlantis
