KIDS' GAMES
 

GNOMOPOLI
The great game of Gnomes 
for the conquest of the Realm of Nizac

Lo Scarabeo, Torino, 1994
Illustrated by Antonio Lupatelli

Boxed with foldable board, place markers, bank-notes, flags, chance cards, taxation cards, courtly cards, dice.
The game is well suited to children and adults alike, who don’t feel like growing up.
The mechanics of the game, idealised with the cooperation of Andrea Buldrini,is vaguely reminiscent of “Monopoly”, but here the game is playedon two sovrapposing levels.
At the first the outer provinces must be conquered (outer frame),then the regal apartments (inner frame), and finally one has to win an “election”".

AGame well suited to children between 9 and 13 years old.
The game is vaguely reminiscent to “Snakes and Ladders”: a spiral than one has to climb with a place-marker.
