Gnomes & Associates is a fun family game with miniatures. It stands as the ideal gateway to discover the universe of fantasy miniatures. It offers a simple rules system, featuring a wide variety of powers and objectives to attract all players. In Gnomes & Associates, each player controls one of Marveland’s Guilds and tries to become the most influential guild in the kingdom.

Each player controls from 2 to 4 miniatures and attempts to achieve the missions that will lead them to victory. The game uses color dice whose successes are clearly identifiable. Besides the miniatures, a card system allows to specialize and greatly vary the gaming experience.

Gnomes & Associates takes place in the Marvelands, a medieval world populated with fairy creatures. It is a magical universe ruled by corporations of workers and bandits. Hoping to make a fortune and climb the ladder, Fairies, Trolls and others must work together and join their forces to prosper. As the little people is facetious, everyone plays dirty tricks to other Guilds. Nobody is immune to a bad shot or a surprise. Yet, from time to time, a Guild manages to hold sway over others and establishes its law on the region. The Marvelands are rich with rare materials and full of energy. These are components that allow guilds to create powerful artifacts to reach their objectives. Gnomes & Associates strives to reflect a colorful and wonderful world where humor and situation reversals are numerous. The game also provides a wide panel of tactical choices that will satisfy the players from classic board games. Each guild has its own capabilities and strategies. This joyful aspect of the game is meant to unite and to bring around the table all kinds of players: from the miniatures player to the strategists, core-gamers to casual players, parents to children. Gnomes & Associates is a perfect gateway to the world of miniatures game, both an intuitive and easy initiation tool and a fun game with a good dose of laughter and variety.

Gnomes & Associates is a game for 2-4 players.  A game lasts 45 to 60 minutes.
The game is organized in turns, punctuated by activations of miniatures. Each player activates one miniature, plays its actions and hands over to his neighbor. A turn is composed of two activation rounds, and then goes to the next turn.   

Each turn, guilds try to accomplish different tasks allowing them to increase their Gold while avoiding the dirty tricks of rival guilds. During a round, there are two options for miniatures: general actions (Move, Manufacturing, Combat, Larceny and Transfer) and Actions cards, all of which are special moves for you to surprise your opponents.

Game System:

The Gnomes & Associates game system is simple and effective. Each creature is defined by two characteristics: Combat and Larceny, and a special ability. At each activation, a miniature can perform two actions and use Action cards from its hand. These Action cards generate either a guild’ specific ability, or a bonus that will strengthen the characteristic of the miniature for the duration of an action, activation or a full turn to all members of the guild. When a miniature wants to fight or rob an opponent, it takes as many dice as its characteristic. The choice of the dice depends on the terrain or the desired action. In a standard test, the die will be green. The model will then have an even chance of a successful action. Some areas, ruins and stone circles, increase the difficulty. The player then takes yellow dice, increasing the difficulty to one third. The hardest rolls are made with red dice which only have one sixth chance of success. On the contrary, being in a Forest or on a Hill improves the characteristics of your miniatures and enable you to get an additional green die. Being well positioned to get the most of the talents of your creatures is then crucial… while preventing opposing guilds to do the same! The game system is that simple! But a simple game does not mean simplistic! You will see that the Actions cards will grant you additional opportunities!
