The deck consists of 49 cards numbered 1-7, in each of the seven rainbow colors. A 7 is always higher than a 6, but a Red 6 is higher than an Orange 6, and so on down the color spectrum (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet). When comparing two cards, compare value first, then color. …

Card Drafting

Inis handles card drafting differently than most games that use a card drafting mechanic.

For example, in Inis it is possible for a player to take his held card from Step 1 and pass it to his neighbor during Step 2. This allows players to adapt and have the option to take cards they see later in the round that might be more appealing.

Starting Tile Draft Variant

Once you have played Teotihuacan a few times, you may want to use an alternative method of receiving your Starting tiles.

Please note, however, that this variant is recommended only for players with both a solid grasp of the rules and enough experience to be able to form a strategy from the first moments of the game.
