Description:

Tsuro is a tile-based board game with an Asian spiritual theme. The goal of the game is to be the last player with a token left in the play area.

On their turn, each player selects a tile from their hand and place them on the 6x6 board to build a path that begins at the edge of the board and travels around the interior.

You must place a tile and slide your stone along the path created. When your tokens reaches the edge of the board or collides with another player's tokens, you are out of the game.

You have to plan your path wisely. The choices you make affect all the journey acros the board.

Tsuro is fun, fast, and exciting. It's elegantly designed and easy-to-learn.

  • 35 path tiles

  • 8 marker stones

  • 1 Dragon tile

The Tiles

Each path tile shows four lines-or paths-that create eight points on the tile's edges. When the tiles are laid alongside each other, these points line up and the paths continue.

Each tile is unique.

Paths on a tile might cross one another, but they each proceed uninterrupted and independently of the others.

Setup

  1. Lay out the game board.
  2. Each player chooses a marker.
  3. Find the Dragon tile and set it aside.
  4. Shuffle the path tiles and deal three face down to each player.
  5. These tiles create your hand. You may look at the tiles in your hand at any time.
  6. Stack the remaining path tiles face down. This stack is the draw pile.
