Tsuro: Phoenix Rising - has a beautiful Night Time theme and introduces the phoenix who connected the stars. This incantation continues to challenge 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 first player to create a constellation of seven new stars.
Tsuro: Phoenix Rising - is a clever, simple, strategy game that we adore playing, easy to teach and learn, but deceptively hard to achieve victory. For us, the stand out feature of this game, and indeed the whole series, is the stunning artwork which is beautifully complimented by the included miniatures. Look out for the other games in this legacy series - Tsuro, the original game first released in 2004, Tsuro Of The Seas and its expansion Tsuro Of The Seas: Veteran Of The Seas.
