Gameday First Play – Tsuro
I picked this up in a maths trade and took it straight to the first Game Day I could.
It’s soooo pretty… and originally called “Squiggle Game”
A beautiful and beautifully simple game of laying a tile before your own token to continue its path on each turn. The goal is to keep your token on the board longer than anyone else’s, but as the board fills up this becomes harder because there are fewer empty spaces left… and another player’s tile may also extend your own path in a direction you’d rather not go. Easy to introduce to new players, Tsuro lasts a mere 15 minutes and actually does work for any number from 2 to 8.
This is the video where I first saw it. (Starts at 1:15)
So you put your little Dragon token on the end of the board, play a tile and move it down the line and draw another tile.
Just try and keep your Dragon on the board and try not to collide into someone else. Last person left wins.
Very simple, very pretty and lots of fun with any number of players. (3 was fun, 7 was fun-ner)
