Illimat has the style and flavor of a classic card game with a dynamic twist. As you play, you combine cards and collect them, trying to gather more than your opponents. But hidden luminaries and changing seasons can alter your plans.  

Beautifully illustrated by Carson Ellis and designed by award winning game designer Keith Baker with heirloom quality materials.

Each field has a season, and this determines what actions can be taken in that field. Anything is possible in Summer, but you cannot sow in Autumn, harvest in Winter, or stockpile in Spring. The seasons change when the Illimat turns, creating new opportunities for each player. 


Luminaries are hidden cards that can exert influence over a field. You never know what Luminary will appear when you clear a field... will the Rake steal your cards, or will be Maiden negate the power of winter?  Luminaries add color and complexity to every game of Illimat.
