  The Artisans of Naqala – An expansion for Five Tribes Tue, 21 April 2015 15:01
They say that in the very heart of the mountains of the Sultanate of Naqala, there lives a Tribe that rarely appears in the bazaars and markets in town.

They call themselves the Artisans, and work day and night crafting precious items, inlaid with rare gems.

Some travellers claim that the Artisans are able to craft unique artifacts, filled with magic and mystery…


The Artisans make up a new Tribe in the game and you will need to put them to good use if you want to claim the Sultanate!

Represented by purple Meeples, the Artisans add a new layer of strategy in Five Tribes. With their help, players will be able to have precious or magic items crafted. Some of them are worth Victory Points, while others unlock special powers.

To accommodate these new Meeples, the expansion also features new Tiles: Workshops (where the Artisans craft their Items) and Specialized Markets (where players can buy specific Merchandise when needed). An impassable Chasm Tile, as well as Mountain markers, will also force the players to adapt their strategy when moving Meeples on the board. Two new Djinns are also provided in the expansion.

Five Tribes is for 2 to 4 players, ages 13 and older and takes approximately 40-80 minutes to play. The expansion, which requires the base game for play, includes 15 Wooden Tribe Meeples, 6 new Tiles (Workshops, Specialized Markets, and Chasm), 4 Tents, 4 Djinn cards (2 new & 2 revised), 6 Mountains, 18 Item Markers, 1 New Scoring Pad, and 4 Summary Sheets. The expansion is expected to be available from game retailers in June in Europe and early August in North America (GenCon) at an expected retail price of $25/€20.

I enjoy Five Tribes, but I will not be getting the expansion due to the mismatch with the original printing of the game.

Hello,

What is the mismatch with the original printing of the game? I am thinking about buying the expansion and I am not sure what you mean? Is it with the Fakir / Slave cards?

Best Regards,
Bob

The expansion includes 6 new tiles, some of them with Fakir symbols (the Tile action costs 2 Fakirs or Slaves). It does not prevent you from playing.

If you really want to play with Fakir cards (instead of Slaves), you can order them from the BGG Store.
