Tsuro - has a beautiful Asian theme and challenges players to drive their opponents into each other or off the board whilst simultaneously extending their own route in directions that make it difficult for opponents to do the same. The 6 x 6 grid board takes centre stage and players is dealt a hand of tiles (with two, twisting lines on it) and also places their marker on the grid. In turn order players place a tile from their hand onto the board and moves their token as far as it can go along the line until it is stopped by an empty space. If the token reaches the edge of the board or collides with another player's token that player is out of the game. The aim of the game is to be the last player left with a token on the board.
Tsuro - is a clever, simple, strategy game that we adore playing. The game is extremely easy to teach and learn to play but deceptively hard to achieve victory in. For us, the stand out feature of this game, and indeed the whole series, is the stunning artwork. Look out for the other games - Tsuro Of The Seas and its expansion Tsuro Of The Seas: Veteran Of The Seas, and the even more visually stunning Tsuro: Phoenix Rising.
