Great family game!
Carolyn K. of Hoagies' Gifted Education Page
Even those that do often play best with a specific number, so the list of games that play well with large or small group is very short.

It is simple, quick to play and provides a satisfying experience.

Playing this game the first time is like playing go the first time: you are overcome by a sense that there is a tremendous amount of complexity in such seemingly simple rules. The primary difference is that, unlike go, Tsuro is comprehensible. The game board is a series of tiles that always interconnect. The player has a stone that must move along its path, and its path must always grow. The path you lay now can result in another player being forced off the board later, or for two player's paths to interconnect. As more players are added, the amount of complexity and strategy in the game increases exponentially.

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.

This is a very unique game. Players lays cards, doing their best to not slide off the game board, and doing their best to push others players off. My family loved it.

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.

Draw cards, and use them to create a path for your playing piece to follow. But watch out for the other players' paths, and whatever you do, don't let your path lead to the edges of the board.

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!

If you're looking for a family board game that's simple to learn and plays well with anywhere from 2 to 8 players, then Tsuro is one you'll want to check out.

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.

We played Tsuro for the first time when we visited our son for Christmas. I knew I had to have one for our home. I finally found it on Amazon - when will I learn to look here first? We recently had friends over for dinner and after dinner we played the game. It's easy to learn -play one game and you've got it. It doesn't take long to play a game, it quickly has everyone laughing and it can become a little addictive so we normally set a limit on how many games or how much time we will spend playing the game.

We saw this game on a certain celebrity's youtube show and it occurred to me that it'd be a great game to play together with our 6 and 9 year olds, whose attention span may not last long enough to deal with games that involve more complex instructions or gameplay.

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.

What does it take to become an enlightened one? One must stay on the path to the very end. This is the theme of this tile laying game for up to eight players.

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.

I am an avid boardgame player and I love this game. It is simple, quick to play and provides a satisfying experience. The rules are very simple: place a stone (your pawn) at the edge of the board on a path beginning. On your turn, lay down a tile from your hand and move your stone (and any other stone the new tile touches) to the end of the path. If the new path takes a player's stone to the edge of the board, or makes two stones collide, those players are eliminated. Aside from some rules about drawing tiles, that's pretty much it. Very simple. I usually dislike games that include player elimination, but Tsuro plays so quickly that it's not so bad. In my household, this game is typically a "warmup" for another strategy boardgame. The last thing I have to say about the game is that it is beautiful. The graphic design is great and all the components are high quality.
