Keltis Ór – Rules of the dice game – Happy Meeple

Where have you hidden your treasure? Be silent ye shaven donkey! Along the way, ye may choose mystic tokens from the dark stones, which will help ye along yer way. If ye play yer cards right, ye will find yer way to great riches. Do ye have a pad of paper?

Created by prolific designer, Reiner KniziaKeltis is kelti an expansion of the mechanisms utilized in his classic two-player game, Lost Cities. Both games were published by Kosmosbut Keltis earned long neglected Knizia a Spiel des Jahres in The game supports up to four players from ages ten and up; although, I think that younger players would do just fine. You can easily finish a game of Keltis in less than an hour. Like Lost CitiesKeltis has players managing a hand of numbered cards of five different suits.


The cards are numbered from 0 to 10, and there are two of each card for a total of cards. Players may choose to advance their tokens along five paths of nine stones, one path for each suit, by playing cards in an ascending or descending sequence.

If you choose to travel along a particular path, you must be prepared to move at least a few spaces; otherwise, you will pay a penalty at the end of the game. Along the way, you can pick up bonus tiles on the path, which will allow you to take additional moves or score bonus points. Players have to manage their hand of cards in such a way to gain the most benefit from the paths they choose and the tokens they collect. I think Keltis is a very well designed and enjoyable family game, so why is this not on your shelf?

Well, Keltis was never released in the United States. The Board Gamewhich was almost the same game, but slightly different. Not as different as Kirk and Mirror Universe Kirk, but still different enough to be distinct.

I think it was a mistake to create two games. By creating a different version for release in English, they took away all of the possible name recognition from the SdJ.

Keltis Card – Rules of the card game

I realize that they could not predict an SdJ win, but it still seems like a bad marketing strategy. I prefer Keltis over Lost Cities: The Board Game simply because I think that Keltis is a better looking game. I love the theme and the bits.


By the end of the day, I hope to have my very own copy of Keltis. I found a used copy online for a ekltis price. I could have gotten a new one for about the same price if I had ordered one through Amazon.
