Next month sees the latest Uwe Rosenberg design arrive from Stronghold Games. In Nova Luna, players will aim to optimize the synergy between the tiles they lay in this abstract title. The game is for one to four players, ages 8+, plays in 30 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $49.99 when it arrives February 26th.
The new moon is a symbol for a new beginning, the perfect time to start something new and to plan your future — and that is what Nova Luna (lat. for new moon) is all about. In each round of this abstract tile-laying game, you have to plan your future anew, developing a new strategy to cope with what the moon wheel has to offer you.
On each turn, you have to decide which new tile from the moon wheel to place in front of you. Every new tile brings a new task you have to fulfill. In order to do so, you need to place tiles of the correct color adjacent to the task you want to complete, but these of course again bring you new tasks. Each time a task is solved, you may place one of your markers on it. So decide wisely and be the first one to place all your markers.
Nova Luna is a game of building connections. In every round of this tile-laying game, you must optimize your choice and plan for the future based on the dwindling supply of tiles available on the moon wheel. And with every new moon, you will need to develop a new strategy with what the moon wheel has to offer you. Find your path to building synergies between the tiles, and you will win.
