Somnium: Rise of Laputa

Somnium: Rise of Laputa is a light tableau building game with fun combos and synergies for 2 to 4 players with easy-to-learn rules and exciting game-play, all under the 15 minutes.  

The game is designed by Ryan Doffek, and we have been waiting years to be able to release this game!  Literally, years!  When we first played this game, Ryan was 16 years old, and due to minor contract laws, we couldn't sign the game to publish it.  Time has passed, and after a long awaited birthday, we can finally release this wonderful game!

  • Win by reaching 20 Influence before anyone else.
  • Each player is dealt three cards.
  • On your turn, play one card.  Gain Influence based on the card played.
  • End your turn, and draw back up to three cards.
  • If a card you control leaves play, lose the amount of influence it is worth. 
  • That's it!
  •   

Seriously, here's a quick how to play and below are the entire instructions!

Somnium: Rise of Laputa is an amazing game that's super intuitive and can be taught in less than a minute, but is full of engaging moments and strategy similar to a game double it's size and complexity. The game is great as for the casual and more serious gamer alike, and can easily be brought out and played for a few rounds on the fly. The designer, a Magic player, designed the game and would actually test it in between matches at tournaments. We are extremely proud of this game, and have the game fully loaded to the point that there aren't even any stretch goals. We really appreciate your time checking out the page, and hope you consider supporting the project; especially for such a low cost!  

Sincerely, 
Frank Alberts.
