Lead one of Ireland’s first peoples and perform legendary exploits in Inis, a two-to-four player board game designed by Christian Martinez and lavishly produced by Matagot. Inis immerses you in Ireland’s mythological era, its fierce heroes, enchanted objects, and beautiful mist-covered landscape. Your goal in Inis is to become Ireland’s first High King. Among your allies are the warrior Cuchulainn, the beautiful and tragic Deirdre, and the exiles Diarmuid and Grainne. Your tools include a magical spear, horses made out of sea-foam, a god’s cauldron, and all the cards you can gather into your hand.
No single continued strategy can win in Inis, not destroying your opponents through clashes, building Sanctuaries, controlling the Capital, or exploring new territories. Every hand offers your new options, every part of the landscape is different, every opponent has his or her strengths and susceptibilities. To rule the emerald isle, you must emulate her: endure the changing Seasons, outsmart your opponents, and never give up.
