Nomids is a game released as one of the new stand-alone boxes of Looney Pyramids.

Setup

Put one trio of all ten colors into a 'Bank' at the center of the table. Each player choose three pyramids in turn, one of each size, in three different colors.

Rules

On your turn, roll the Lightning die, and take the relevant action:

:Bolt Deposit: Move a pyramid from your collection to the Bank
:Split Withdraw: Move a pyramid from the Bank to your collection (if the bank is empty, treat this as Wild)
:SymbolPyramids Dispense: Move a pyramid from the Bank to another player's collection (if the bank is empty, treat this as Wild)
:Arrow Transfer: Move a pyramid from any player's collection to any other player's collection (but not the Bank)
:Recycle Exchange: Swap a pyramid from any player's collection with a pyramid from any other player's collection (but not the Bank)
:Atom Wild: Use any of the other five actions

Monochrome Liquidation

If, after your action, you have all three pyramids of a certain color, you may move all three of them to the bank. You must take an action before you can liquidate.

Winning

If a player has an empty collection or "no 'mids", even if it's not their turn, they win.
