Duration: 30 minutes ● Age: 8 y.o.+ ● Nb of players: 2-5

Easy to learn, Gaïa is fast paced game which involves tile placement, area control and influence with a twist of power cards. Gaïa is also a great game for two players.

In Gaïa you will: Create a world ● Create life Build cities and try to satisfy their needs ● Use godly powers to shape the world to your benefit!

No victory points in this game: you have 5 wooden meeples. Place them all on the board to win!

There are 2 levels of rules in Gaïa: Basic rules allow you to play from 8 y.o. with a simple mechanism and a pacific game. Advanced rules will give you the opportunity to use godly powers to shape the world after it has been created (with lightnings, volcanoes, rain, sun, earthquakes…). You can even steal the opponent’s cities. Of course, it’s a more aggressive game with a higher level of strategy.

• Play in teams or fly solo • Timed play • Planning • Bluffing • Betting & Voting •

In 1001, you will take on the role of the spirits of the four winds who will guide Aladdin’s flying carpet.
Sometimes to aid him, sometimes to hinder him; the spirits of the wind can be capricious. Players work in teams (one Day and one Night), but also have individual scores.

There are two ways to score points: • As a team • You will try to pick the best paths for Aladdin to fly so that he collects the resources he needs to build a palace for the princess and capture the moon and stars for her • Individually • You can score points by successfully predicting the actions of the opposing team and by helping the Vizier block them.

Before the hourglass runs out, plan and discuss the best route for Aladdin to take. Will you work with your team to help Aladdin on his flying carpet? Or will you increase your individual score by helping the Vizier? Plan carefully, block the opposing team, and collect the gems you need to build a palace for the princess!

• 1001 also includes advanced rules (and advanced components) for an even greater challenge.
