Description Edit | History

From BoardgameNews.com:

Fréderic Moyersoen presents a new take on the us-versus-them genre with Nuns on the Run, published by Mayfair Games. Most of the players are novices who are eager to secretly explore the grand abbey at night in order to fulfill their “secret wish.” They sneak through corridors searching for keys and treasures. (What treasures could a novice be searching for? Forbidden cookies? A soft mattress? Or narcotics? Or a book of witchcraft?)

While sneaking through the abbey, they must remain watchful for the abbess or prioress who are on patrol to ensure that pure novices remain that way. These characters are controlled by other players who want to nab the novices before they can make it back into bed.

Nuns on the Run is a like a reverse of Scotland Yard. Players play either as a novice, or as the Abbess or Prioress. The Novices move in secret and avoid being seen or heard by the Abbess or Prioress. The goal is to make it to the location on the board where the novice can get her "secret wish" and return to their room without being detected. All of the novices move in secret by marking their movement and locations on hidden sheets. The Abbess and Prioress move on regulated paths around the board, but can diverge and chase down novices that they see or hear. The player or players who complete their secret wishes and return to their rooms win, or the Abbess and Prioress win if they catch a certain number of novices.

5 NotR TURN SEQUENCE v1 by tobydjones
Turn sequence tracker for Nuns on the Run, Version 1. Running my first game of NotR I found it difficult to keep track of the turn sequence, so I put this pdf together. The size and spacing of the dots mean you can use one of the spare yellow marker squares to keep track. My notes assume you're playing with the game author's suggested variant where a 'caught' novice chooses when to go back 'on the run' This is my first file submission - please do give feedback and corrections, thanks :)

36 Nuns on the Run line of sight utility
Nuns on the Run line of sight utility by Roy Lazarovich. An interactive line of sight utility that allows you to click on a spot to see all visible spots, or click and drag to see visible spots in a certain direction only. All visible spots are highlighted on the map as well as printed at the side of the map in a sorted order which allows players to quickly find if their current position is on the list. All visibility information is human-editable through a simple text config file so you can make corrections if you need any. Hope you find this useful.
