What is Numinous?

Numinous is a card-based numbers game, where you continually add points in order to reach a Victory Number. Use mythical creatures and villagers to keep your opponents from reaching the same goal. As a bonus; learn a little about the Mythical Creatures you love and learn how they can really change the game.


Players play a card from their hand in order to reach the Victory Number before the other player(s). First one to reach and keep the Victory Number without being stopped, wins. Every card you play gets you closer to or further away from your goal. Do you add points with your villagers or add points with a Beastie. A Beastie? What’s that? The Beasties are the creatures and monsters from Myth, Lore and Legend, each with their own specific abilities. Play a Big Monster, earn points, and maybe eat a villager and really make the game change; I mean; to a Monster, Villagers are squishy… but yummy. As more and more points are played, you get closer or further away from the Victory number; but be careful your opponents are doing the same.. Do you have the numbers and Beasties to reach the Victory Number? And once there, will the other players be able to stop you?
