Longs and Legends


Part II in the series Legends of Luma. The adventurers from Part I, Oh Captain, are now travelling south with the Nomads and sitting around a camp fire with them. A drink provided by a Shaman leaves them confused and they must try to put together fragments of stories as legends of the Nomads.

Story tiles are randomly stacked in eight piles, Legend cards, sorted by visible numbers, and song cards are displayed. You have two discs and also cards of an adventurer of your choice, with special ability; first, you place the discs of adventurers not in play on cases around the camp fire, then all players place their discs, maximum four discs per case.

The active player selects one of two options. 1. Move and listen to legends - you take a stack of discs with minimum one of your discs and distribute discs on successive cases / stacks of discs, one disc per case or stack, and beginning with the bottom one. Then all players take the top tile of a stack adjacent to a disc pile with their own disc on top, and keep a story or joker tile. A moon tile is put on the moon area. 2. Write down song or legend - you discard collected story tiles; for a song you discard different tiles, for legends identical tiles; you can only have one song and one legend card, but legends can be upgraded. Four moon tiles for a full moon in the moon area trigger a scoring - song and legend values minus story or joker tiles.

Nomads is a well-working sequel to Oh Captain and a very nice, good independent game; especially interesting is the mechanism that adventurers that are not in play do collect tiles all the same.
