Tsuro

Guest Author - Lynn Little

Ages 8 and up

Players 2 to 8

Playing Time 20 minutes

In Tsuro™ , you build a path for your stone by laying down game pieces. The object of the game is to stay on the path and away from the edge of the board. Your moves are not only strategic for you but can affect other players as well and vice versa. Tsuro™ is fast-paced, easy to learn, and is a lot of fun.

Players start the game by placing their stone on any hash marker on any side of the game board. You will lay your tile to build a path for your stone. Each tile features a different road pattern, so it's best to study which way the path will lead you. Each player can have three tile cards. After laying a tile card, move your stone marker to the edge of the path. If laying your tile piece opens up a path for any other players' markers, then that player moves their marker to the edge of the path. If this eliminates any player, then the player who laid the tile can choose to exchange any of her tile pieces for the eliminated player's tiles. All tiles from an eliminated player are placed back into the drawing pile. When everyone has laid a tile, then players with fewer than three tiles can draw until they again have three tiles.

Sometimes taking a path closer to a player can spell trouble since the game tiles they play will affect your stone and may put you out of the game. You want to stay away from the edge of the board. When you reach the edge of the board, you are out of the game.

The game box of Tsuro™ is beautifully designed. The box depicts a phoenix and a dragon, symbolizing two intertwined paths to enlightenment. Rich colors and vibrant art work used in Tsuro™ make this not only a fun game to play but a pretty one to look at.

Tsuro™ is also a different gaming experience every time you play. Since each tile is unique, placing tiles always creates a one of a kind playing field that could possibly never be repeated again. Each game could be a completely new and exciting board.

Tsuro™ is the first board game for WizKids and retails for $24.95.
