I played this game for the first time last night, and by this morning the people I was playing with had already tried out rules variants that utterly change the nature of play, as well as coming up with a light framework for gambling on it that we didn't try.
I could be wrong, but I think this game or some variant on it will ultimately rank with chess, go, and mancala as a defining game in history.
I'm also going to rank it as light strategy - the rules are simpler and the thought process is easier learned than say chess or go.
The board and cards are unusually attractive, and the game is different than any I've seen. Sturdy and fun, sure to be a family favorite for years.
Kids as young as 4 or 5, to kids as old as... me!, anyone who can create and follow a path will enjoy Tsuro. And the great thing is, we can all play together, old and young. Great family game!
The learning curve is 2 minutes, and the game will enver be the same twice. Great family fun, and great for up to 8 players as well.

Tsuro is a board game that essentially has a time limit on it - since there's a finite number of tiles and places to play them on the board. The game will end when the last tile is played (if it hasn't ended before then), so you can play a number of games back to back.
The pieces are fantastic as well and they help support the theme of the game.

You place a tile on the board and follow the path on it, trying to avoid other players or going off the board. The last surviving player wins. So simple, yet so complicated. I love games like this.
Up to eight can play, and the playing pieces are both unusual and nice. They're like small stones. The instructions are nice and colorful. You'll probably have to buy this game on the internet or at a specialty gaming store. I don't think Toys R Us or Wal Mart carry this game. But if you find it, grab it. If you like strategy games that aren't overly complicated, you'll love it. Plus it's a game the whole family can play. The kids can plot to run Mom and Dad off the board.
It's a simple idea, you play a tile and follow the path that's created to its completion.
We were correct, the 6 yr old saw dragons and was thrilled, both kids are able to do very well and competitively with the adults and attention span is not an issue.
The game plays very quickly so it's easy to fit a round in before bed. We anticipate this will be great with a bottle of wine and friends as well.
The pieces and game board look pretty cool, and the packaging is pretty neat as well, asian-dragon themed.
The basic premise is that each player lays a tile on their turn in order to lengthen their path on the board. However, you have to be careful. If your path reaches the edge of the board, then you are out of the game. It is very simple to learn and play, but difficult to master. I believe that almost any age can enjoy this game, and since it can be played with up to eight players, with games lasting only 10-20 minutes, it is a good choice for parties and small gatherings. If you're interested in playing board games, but don't want to spend hours over the board, then this is an excellent choice.
