Inis has your 'dudes on a map' mechanic but the strategy involved and restraint you must exercise are what make the game so engaging.

It is important to know when not to fight as a combat you can win is not always in your best interest. It takes a few plays to know when to let rival clans live peacefully in your territories and for how long.

This is also true for knowing when show your hand or when to pass even though you intend on taking more actions this turn. The game requires some patience. If you make bold moves too early in a turn you could end up blocked by the Geis card and lose your action. Alternatively, if you pass hoping make your critical move after the Geis card has been used and actions are safer you could end up missing your chance completely. The balance is always in the forefront of your mind.

My group often ends the game in a struggle where more then one player is meeting a win condition at a time. Then it's a race to stay on top, for which you better have the right cards in hand.

Inis has a finesse to it that is accentuated by the gorgeous card art and map tiles.
