Nuns on the Run
From the Publisher...
"...to be sure, your sin will find you out." —Numbers 32:23 The novices are on the loose! Temptation has lured them out of their cells, and they hope not to be caught by the abbess and the prioress. But the guards are swift and their hearing is excellent, so it will take craftiness and a bit of luck in order to make it back to their beds without being caught!
In Nuns on the Run™ you explore the exciting nocturnal world of a grand abbey filled with intrigue and deception. As the old abbess, the noble prioress, or a simple novice you become hunter or prey. Everyone gets a special "blessing" but only the novices try to fulfill a "secret wish." They must sneak through the dimly lit halls, corridors, and gardens, seeking keys and treasures unique to their goal. Meanwhile, the vigilant abbess and prioress patrol their routes, ever watchful of young novices who should be fast asleep in their austere cells. Are you wily enough, or sneaky enough to fulfill your quest and win the night?
Nuns on the Run™ is a very casual, social game for 2-8 players ages 10 and older. You can play a game in about 45-60 minutes.

1 game board
1 pad of movement log score sheets
2 stand-up player figures
12 noise/vanished tokens

|Great fun! Slowly but surely (as we understand the rules for the nuns better) this game is getting increasingly tense and fun to play. Sneak around without being heard or seen, but still quick enough to win? Super concept!
|I was surprised by how much I liked this game - it's basically the board game format of Hide and go Seek, but it plays very entertainingly. Those who like Scotland Yard or NY Chase should love this game, as it's essentially a reversed version with many hiders/runners and one seeker using two pawns.
|Playing as a novice feels very much like really sneaking around at night, trying to avoid getting caught by the Abyss. I like playing as Mr. X in Scotland Yard, and in this game almost all the players get to move around in hiding. Having multiple targets keeps it interesting for the Abyss player too.
The theme is great and the game is just simply fun - and very suitable for a larger group, e.g 5-6 players.
