How does this game differ from the rest of the Nova Suecia games?
Apokalypsis is one of the lightest games from Nova Suecia. Nevertheless, under the surface
there is a lot of strategy similar to the other games. The mechanisms remind about games like
Christina Regina and Tre Kronor Infernum
with the players having hidden information and means to keep
their knowledge hidden while trying to deduce what others know. A short gamers' game disguised as a family game!
About the Rules
How is the game best taught to others?
Begin with the objective: the island gradually turns into sea and you want to survive.
Set up the board and show which areas that are referred to by which cards. Demonstrate how
intersecting tiles are flipped to their sea sides and explain that the objective is to survive.
When all this is clear, play out a sample turn where you show how and why omen cards are kept
and discarded, how meeples move to safety and how cataclysms are resolved.
