Hello my lovely Geeks and Geekettes, time for another 60-second review!
This week I am reviewing NOM, which Is a quickfire round game published by Alleycat Games with the beloved artistry of Simon's Cat by British animator Simon Tofield. Oh yes! Simon's Cat, the loveable, cheeky, and mischievous cat who took the internet by storm when it was first released on YouTube. . . in 2008! Oooh I feel old...
Anyway, to the game!
Nom is a number placing card game where you have to get rid of your hand of cards by either placing cards higher, or lower than the one before. Sounds easy enough. But the rules change, the direction of play can move, and there are pesky cards that make you pick up even more cards, making your task all the more difficult.
The first person to get rid of their whole hand wins. Simples!
The game is pocket-sized for easy carry, and the quality of the cards is very good, with a silky feel for easy shuffling.
I love to take this with me on hols. Even my parents enjoyed it, so it gets a family thumbs up from us! A game lasts around 10 to 15 minutes.
This gets a 5 on the DOALG score, purely for the sweet simplicity and easy-to-learn rules, it's family-friendly and loads of fun.
Copies of the game can be purchased from Amazon, and Alleycat Games, or may even be stocked at your Friendly Local Game Store!
Take care, and don't forget to feed the cat!
