A 2-player, light strategy, kind-hearted tabletop board game. Your gnomes come alive at midnight, but have to stay hidden out of the shifting moonlight.
There are 3 ways to win: Capture the three toadstools, Bump 3 rival gnomes off the board, or Complete the dance design anywhere on the board.
Gnomes can move 1 space in any direction, but they may never move on or off of a moonlit square, as shown on your current moonlight card. If a gnome moves onto a rival gnome’s square, the rival is bumped off the board.
On your turn you may move, or add a gnome back onto a start garden square. Then reveal your next moonlight card. A player only has to complete 1 of the 3 goals to win the garden for the night. 🍄

I received my game today! I love the artwork, and the adorable little gnomes. My step-daughter and I just played 2 games tonight. It was so easy to learn and short, but, challenging to play! We really enjoyed it! Thank you! 😀

“The game play is incredibly simple but has quite a bit of strategic depth, especially the more I play it. The art is beautiful. Kiri Østergaard Leonard is a talented artist with a lot of fantasy art in her portfolio so the game is a perfect fit.”

“Gnomes at Midnight checks all the boxes I look for in a game. It’s fast, fun, easy to learn, and makes you want to play again. Even if you just lost. Or maybe especially if you just lost so that you can get your payback!”

Hi friends! I finally managed to get a couple of games in and immensely enjoyed it! So glad this managed to get funded in the end, it’s so clever in such a compact way.
My wife and I have (finally) had a chance to sit down and give the game a try and we love it! Congrats on producing a really fun strategy game, I look forward to seeing what you come up with next!
The ‘gneeples’ are particularly adorable. The gameplay is deep and contains a healthy mix of strategy and luck. Players move gnomes around on a square-tiled board (double sided), attempting to achieve one of 3 shared victory conditions. Surprisingly, the feel of this game is akin to that of chess – in a positive way. Games last around 15-30 min each, and offer a surprisingly exulting experience.

Awesome 2 Player game with incredible artwork
What I really appreciate about this game is that is almost a perfect information abstract game. Generally I find perfect information abstract games a little boring, but the addition of the moon cards adds enough uncertainty to make it exciting. Those cards can ruin best laid plans or they can give the opening that is needed for victory. The addition of an unknown variable gives this game a great mix of strategic play and tactical choices.
good components and interesting gameplay
