The Manufacturer's Board Game Review of Rumis:
Grades 1 and up. There’ll be no stone left unturned in this challenging strategy game. Inspired by Incan architecture, RUMIS (meaning “stones”) sharpens spatial awareness and critical thinking skills as players strategize to outwit their opponents while reconstructing historical Incan structures (pyramid, tower, stairs, and wall). Each player receives eleven Rumis stones of one color. Players begin, one stone at a time, strategically placing their stones to prevent opponents from having the most visible colored stones. The player with the most stones visible from above wins! Rumis comes with four beautifully designed game boards, a unique custom turntable, 44 wooden Rumis “stones,” and instructions for variations on the game, including a habit-forming version of solitaire.
Rumis is an exciting game of three-dimensional strategy based on the amazing architecture of the ancient Inca! Using irregular blocks of stone in a variety of shapes and sizes, the Inca built monumental architectural marvels that have withstood the test of time. In the game of Rumis (meaning "stones" in ancient Quechua) players begin constructing a building one stone at a time, strategically placing their stones to prevent opponents from having the most visible colored stones. Construction is limited by the shape and height of the building and by the number of players. Each stone placed must touch at least one face of the same color, but not extend beyond the plan’s height limitations. The player with the most stones visible from above at the end is the winner! Rumis is a winner of the National Competition Award from Mensa Select.Contents of Rumis:
