Z-Man Games Announces NMBR9

May 24th, 2017

Z-Man Games is thrilled to announce NMBR 9, a puzzling game of number stacking for one to four players.

In NMBR 9, players score points by creating their own displays of uniquely shaped number tiles. The higher a tile is in the display, the more points it’s worth—and the most points wins! To score big points, you’ll need to plan ahead and place your tiles carefully. Visualize your future moves to reach higher levels and solve this intriguing puzzle.

With just a deck of cards and a pack of number tiles, NMBR 9 presents a unique and varying challenge every time you play. At the beginning of each round, a number card is drawn from the top of the deck, indicating the number tile players must add to their display that round. From there, it’s up to you to decide where that tile is placed in your display.

There are many factors to consider when placing a tile. Each of the ten types of number tiles cover a different amount of space, which must be taken into account when deciding where it will go. What’s more, players must adhere to a basic set of rules when placing them. Tiles on the same level must share an edge, and a tile on level one or higher must overlap two or more tiles on the level directly beneath it. Most importantly, once a tile is placed, it cannot be moved. Choose where to place your tiles carefully while keeping an eye towards future scoring opportunities.
