FIVE TRIBES REVIEW


N/A

We have not reviewed this game yet but we can tell you that this is a beloved game because it is such an interesting take on the worker placement genre. Instead of placing, all the meeples are already in place and need to be removed. This meshes with the mancala and set collection mechanics well.
