Tsuro is a quick and simple game for 2-8 players from ages 6 and up that plays in about 15 minutes.
Tsuro is an Asian inspired game about laying tiles and following the paths laid out on them. In Tsuro each player starts with a hand of 3 tiles each with various paths laid out on them, and a player token which starts on the edge of the board. Each player takes turns laying a tile down in front of their token and following the path printed on it, then taking a new tile to replace the one they played. Players must be sure not to lead themselves off the edge of the map or into another player or they are out. The goal of the game is to have the last token still on the board. Very Simple. (This was the quickest explanation of the rules I’ve ever done but that’s it)
My Thoughts: This is a great filler game. If you’ve got a few minutes to kill this is the game to bring out. It’s simple and very quick but is still fun and strategic. I especially like the higher player count that it allows, so you can easily play in a group. It allows for mean or risky play if you feel like trying to force someone off the board, or nice recreational play just trying to be the last to edge themselves out.
The components are nice and good quality. Everything has a nice Asian flare about it without being over the top, the token itself is a nice little stone with a dragon on it.
Tsuro (or Tsuro of the Seas which can be played by the same rules or additions to the game) is a must for your game shelf. It’s great to grab and play anytime.
