In Noah the flood is at hand, and to save as many species as possible, Noah will need your help – with only the most deserving of players being saved from the waters!

Each round, players start with eight animal cards in hand; five arks are laid out in a circle, with one animal placed on board from the top of the deck. Noah himself stands on one ark. On a turn, a player plays one card from hand onto the ark where Noah is located, following two rules: (1) the total weight of all animals on board cannot exceed 21 and (2) animals on an ark must be placed either in alternating gender order or must be all of the same gender. After placing an animal, the player moves Noah to a different ark; if he played a female animal, Noah goes to either adjacent ark, while if he played a male, Noah goes to either ark on the other side of the circle.

If a player can't legally play an animal, he must first take in hand all the animals on the ark where Noah is located, then play an animal.

In addition to moving Noah to a nearly full ark, players have two other ways to benefit themselves or mess with other players. If a player plays an animal of the same species as the one last played on that ark (regardless of gender), he moves Noah, then takes another turn. If a player brings the weight of an ark to exactly 21, that ark launches from shore, a new ark becomes available for loading, and the player distributes 1–4 cards from his hand among his opponents. finally, some cards have special animals, such as the giraffe that lets you peek at an opponent's hand and the woodpecker, which stupidly pokes holes in the ark and reduces its maximum weight to 13. Bad woodpecker, bad!

The round ends when a player runs out of cards in hand or a fourth ark launches. Players receive penalty points for cards still in hand, scored according to the number of tears on each card, those tears representing Noah's sadness at the animal being left behind. Then players shuffle all the animal cards and begin a new round. The player with the fewest points after three rounds wins!

  • This game was played and recommanded by SciFi-Universe, here its opinion:

    Noé est un jeu de cartes qui a tout pour plaire aux enfants comme aux adultes. De très belles illustrations, des règles accessibles et simples, et la possibilité de faire rager ses adversaires en faisant preuve d’observation afin d’anticiper leurs mains et les empêcher de jouer. On peut juste regretter qu'à partir de 4 joueurs le jeu perd un peu de sa saveur tactique laissant plus de part à la chance, mais il ne faut pas oublier que Noé est avant tout un jeu familial. Quelle que soit la configuration Noé est donc un jeu très agréable qui a sa place dans toute bonne ludothèque. Nous vous conseillons fortement de l'essayer à 2 ou 3 joueurs pour profiter au maximum de ses mécaniques subtiles.

    Très bon jeu de famille dès 7 ans. Le petit plus : ça encourage les plus jeunes a faire des additions tout en jouant.

    Petit jeu de stratégie bien sympathique!

    La mécanique est sympa, plaît à toute la famille.

    Même ma fille de 5 ans n'arrête pas de le demander. Bien sûre, nous l'aidons côté addition pour le poids limite des embarcations, mais après quelques parties, elle commence à jouer les stratèges.

    Elle est une habitué des jeux de société, mais dans un autre cas, elle aurait pu y jouer dès 7 ans je pense.

    A avoir dans sa ludothèque en jeu familial!
