Product Description

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.

If I could only take three games to a desert island...
February 27, 2008

... this would be one of them, and not because I always win. (Actually, I'm pretty terrible at it.) I've always loved (and stunk at) Cathedral but this 3D version is even more addictive. Partially this game is so pleasing because the multiple versions of play allowed by the different boards-- versions where the height restriction is set and versions (like the steps or pyramids) where the height restriction varies across the board. Strategies that work well in one version fail in others... We've played this game with kids from 7 to 11 and with many adults, even non- gamers, and so far everyone has fallen under its spell.

I agree that Rumis works less well as a two-person game unless both players play two colors, though it seems that children can get their minds around the strategy a lot more easily in the simplest two-person version where they have a better chance of predicting what the board will look like they next time they can place a piece.

Note: this review refers to a different release of this product.
 
 
 
 
 
Very good and simple strategy game
March 04, 2006

The rules are simple to learn and then you are off quickly playing the game. The game has a feel to it similar to Pueblo and Blokus.

You need to effectively place your 3D pieces onto the board with three thoughts in mind. You need to try and block your opponent’s next move, position yourself so you won't get blocked in, and try to get to the maximum height for each row. The strategy is interesting enough to keep you interested even when it is not your turn.

The games playability is maximized with four people playing. The game plays well for both the new game player and the seasoned gamer alike. We typically play this game with me, my wife and my two preteen girls. I have also played this with "the guys" and I found both equally enjoyable. Well paced, simple rules and a great strategic element make this a great game for all!

 
 
 
 
 
As easy or challenging as you make it
July 10, 2005

I won't re-hash the rules which are explained nicely in a previous review.

One thing that confused us though: some of the height restrictions for 2 players didn't play well. The pyramid and stairs seemed too large.

This game can be as easy or challenging as you make it. I played it with my 3-year old daughter who had fun just putting her blocks on the tower. It's fun to use the height limitations to your benefit and try to "block off" your opponents from a section of the board.

This game is a visual treat and has very high replay value. It's a great family game.
