Gnumies are several races of alien space-faring creatures who love to party. They have parties as often as possible and invite all their friends, but try to avoid having certain party-crashers as guests. Getting families to come gives players extra points, but allowing gate-crashers in, loses points. Of course, certain guests have special powers which can help or hinder players in their search for the best party. In the end, the player with the best party guests earns the most points and wins the game.
The gameplay isn't very fun: Place your card down, flip it, compare, draw next, repeat. There is very little strategy as the game is mostly luck. Every time that I have played this game (15+ times now, ugh) the players are all kinda 'ok, so that's it' at the end of the game. I think that the game would be fine for young children as it is very easy to play and has very colorful graphics. I gave the game 3 stars because it may be fun for children and also because it was very well made, great quality cards and artwork.
Party hearty with the Gnumies! You'll bid on the guests, using your ten cards valued 10 to 100, plus the Gnalli. Turn over a guest card from the party deck. Everyone bids one card facedown; these cards are then revealed simultaneously. Highest bid wins the guest and discards the bid. Playing a Gnalli won't win you the guest, so you draw the next card and either keep it, discarding your Gnalli, or give it to someone else. Party guests have values from 1 to 15. A single-party card scores face value, but multiple cards of the same type score much more. Winning a Wullawaki forces you to discard a guest at game's end, but you keep your bid card and all other players discard theirs. The high scorer after everyone runs out of bid cards is the winner. Canap, anyone?
