Embark on a quest to unify a kingdom in For Northwood!, a solo hand management and precision trick-taking game. Your objective is to peacefully bring together the kingdom of Northwood by engaging in dialogues with their rulers.
Over eight rounds, you'll visit eight animal fiefs and engage their rulers in dialogue, represented by tricks. Each ruler's suit represents the trump for that fief, and each ruler requires you to win an exact number of tricks to join your alliance. As the game progresses and your options dwindle, the challenge increases.
You start with four allies, each with a unique ability that you can use once per visit. These abilities allow you to draw, discard, or manipulate your hand to help you reach the target score. Once you've won a ruler over, you can substitute them temporarily for one of your allies, providing a more specific set of abilities to tackle the harder fiefs.
With three difficulty levels and 24 rulers (12 used per game), For Northwood! offers a variety of ability combinations and a new puzzle every time you play.
