Ethnos is a mythical realm filled with creatures big and small. As the last Age ended, war and revolt left the inhabitants without someone to lead them into their future. Giants, Dwarves, Elves, and Centaurs have not traditionally gotten along, but a leader is a diplomat as much as a warrior. Now, you’ll have to bring the residents of Ethnos together under one rule. Over the course of three Ages, you will gather followers and convince them to band together to conquer the six Kingdoms. Featuring a classic design by Paolo Mori and breathtaking illustrations by legendary artist John Howe, Ethnos transports you to a world on the brink of disaster. Only a steady hand and a pure heart will be able to lead the inhabitants of Ethnos into the future.

“Diverse game with many strategies!”

Ethnos is a great, complex, 6 player party game.
At the start of the game, a random set of creatures is chosen from 12 different
creature types and their varying abilities mean that in each game, different strategies are used.
Unlike most games, the visible selection isn’t replenished when recruiting a creature from it.
Instead, the visible selection is replenished by any un-used creatures whenever you play a band, which results in wanting to use all the creatures.
Playing a band allows you to conquer parts of the board, yielding points based on round and area.
Territory is competed for by players, each vying for the top spot.
After each round, territory increases in value.
Territory is divided into 6 different Kingdoms, each with different point values.
The diversity of Ethnos makes it great to play with friends at a party, since players have multiple ways to gain points.
