Despite an unrealized yearning for a good game of Risk or possibly Diplomacy, I did manage to squeeze in some Tsuro with the boys and Kris.
Tsuro: The Game Of The Path is a light opener and a group favourite. It's also very pretty with an Asian spiritual theme. The game play is neat, if not Zen.
I like to take Tsuro with me to any gaming event because it is a fast and beautifully simple game tile laying game that is easy to learn. The average game lasts 15 minutes and up to eight players can play.
Players use tiles to build a path without your opponents steering you in the wrong direction—or off the board!
The paths of other players cross and connect, so the choices you make affect all the journeys across the board. The last person standing wins!
Board Game Geek average rating is 6.67/10. The Game has won some high praise including the 2009 Preferred Choice Award from Creative Child Magazine and the 2010 Major Fun Award
I saw a copy at Mochanopoly last week. Why not check it out with some friends? It is the fun way to learn new games.
If you like it you will find a copy at St. John's finest board game store Downtown Comics.
Tsuro was released in 2004. A follow-up, Tsuro of the Seas was released in 2012. The average game is 30 minutes but this time you play as a ship in an ocean full of sea monsters that want to remove you from the game.
