Description Edit | History

Follow the Pilgrim on the path to Mecca, capturing wild camels, goats, donkeys and horses on the way. The desert shifts -- don't let your herds get lost in the desert! In cities along the way you can sell your animals and find new handlers to help you capture different animals. When you reach Mecca, the Nomad who makes the largest offering to Allah wins the game!

Choose a first player. Players will take turns in clockwise order. On a turn, you will move your Nomad (or not), use Handlers to capture or call wild animals, shift the desert, or sell your animals in the cities. Nomads must keep moving to avoid being lost in the desert, and the Pilgrim travels constantly toward Mecca. When the players reach Mecca, the Nomad who is able to make the most generous offering becomes most blessed in the eyes of Allah and wins the game.

1 Nomads of Arabia Cheat Sheet v1.1
This is a cheat sheet for Nomads of Arabia. It outlines setup and turn structure in a way that is hopefully clearer than the rule book. Please let me know if I made any mistakes. This is just a supplement to the rule book, please consult it if there is a rules question.
