About

NEWS: Nunami will go on a brief hibernation, I'll get a new and realistic cost and work on new artwork for the first expansion with the help of both my daughter and mother.

Keep your eyes open for the relaunch of Nunami in the near future!

--

Nunami is the first Inuit designed tabletop game. It can be played outdoors as shown in the video. The length of a game is about 15 minutes and each game is an enriching experience that requires thinking. Like life, it starts simply, and then becomes challenging as you develop skills.

The game is meant to show that managing our place of living is important through a fun game. Players can win only if they don't over populate their bases with their units. Nunami is an incredible game; simple at sight, but provides broad possibilities.

It is easy to get started with the game but becomes more challenging as you progress.

Players can set their own board layout. Minor starting configurations including the choice of the number of starting cards in the bases have very interesting gameplay options.

The game is recommended for people of 10+ years of age.

Packaging example.

The game's box design is simple and water resistant in case you would like to bring it outdoors.

Nunami's future

I created the game with the future in mind, one of my goals is to finish my Inuit legends based illustrations so there can be more than 2 players. We'll also be able to just use a different set of cards to play two players, each set offers variation of game points and strength.

Fun facts

The game is not about colonizing but about ensuring co-existence.

An awesome mathematician verified the chance for either player to win, it got his four thumbs up.

Beatrice Deer is a well known Inuit artist from Quaqtaq, she has great albums. Please listen to her songs and consider buying them, she allowed me to use one of her songs.

I made all prototypes at home, with our computer, a color printer, a 3D printer, some tape, a ruler from a teacher's drawer (he doesn't know), a pencil and a box of crackers. (There must be items that I forgot to mention).

Risks and challenges

Nunami is my first Kickstarter project, my main concern is related to my location, I would be hard to reach in person. Shipping estimates is a little hard for me because we are used to high shipping costs, but good I'll be using services to keep the shipping cost low.

    Visit the beautiful Ivujivik

    Note: This is good for a trip from Montreal to Ivujivik with return, and lodging in Ivujivik. To reduce complications, I will not be responsible for travels others leading to Montreal.

    Have Thomassie Mangiok personally bring you out in the Tundra, visit the following:
    - Digges Island, see the murre.
    - See ancient human made structure.
    - Hike far and drink fresh clean water.
    - Witness wildlife on islands, ocean and land.
    - Sleep in a cabin where you might wake up with caribou or geese close to you.
    - Stay in and around Ivujivik for four days.

    Summer is the easiest for everyone. But if you are up for a winter or spring visit, it's beautiful. If you are tough, fall is harsh but nice to see.

    You will also receive the game and the PDF file with photos.
