On your turn, you may choose to place an unused worker on the game board. It can only be placed on an empty grass space. A worker gathers resources and can activate buildings in the 8 adjacent spaces. The forest, mountain, and lake spaces allow you to gather wood, stone and fish respectively.

If you place a Worker adjacent to one or more building tiles, you may activate them and benefit from their effects. If the building that you want to activate belongs to another player, you must first pay them one coin.

Build a Building
To build a Building, you need to place one of your workers in the construction area and buy a tile from the market. Place the building on an empty space and claim it with a house token. Add the victory points gained to the tracker.

A round is over once all players have placed all their workers. Now it is time to feed them by discarding resources. Points are deducted if they go hungry!

At the beginning of the game, you receive a certain number of objective cards that can direct your strategy. If you complete an objective, you gain the corresponding victory points immediately.

The game ends after three rounds have been played. The player with the most victory points wins!

Master Word

£19.99

Are you as clever as a fox? As dogged as a bloodhound? Do you have an eagle-eye for details? Pool your team’s resources together to seek out the Master Word!

What’s in the box?

  • 150 Master Word cards
  • One card holder
  • 30 clue cards
  • Three solution cards
  • Five markers
  • One cloth
  • One separator
  • 24 tokens

How to play:

Master Word is a co-operative word-based deduction game in which players have to work together to try to find a secret word from a single starting hint.

Each game, a guide selects a card, looks at the master word, then shows the other players (seekers) the starting hint.

The seekers then have 90 seconds to discuss and each write a clue on a card, which they place in a row.

Once this is done, the guide places a number of tokens at the end of the row equal to the number of clues that are “on the right track” toward the master word. The only catch: the seekers don’t know which clues the tokens refer to!

If the seekers write the master word on a solution card before the end of seven rounds, everyone wins!

If they fail to do this or if they accidentally write the master word on a clue card, everyone loses!

Follow the Guide, find the Master Word!

During each turn you carry out the following steps in order:

  1. You may exchange columns with the camp.
  2. You reveal a construction plan card.
  3. You build as specified by the revealed construction plan card.
  4. You replenish your columns to their full number.

If any temple floors collapse, the game ends immediately. The game ends also if any columns fall over and then can’t be put back on their previous place.

To win the game you need to build your temple high enough!
