That being said... some people in my game group found the game fun despite its randomness as they were able to "turn off their brain" to play and games took around 5 to 10 min to complete. Others, myself included, found it as boring as rolling a D20 after the 3rd or 4th game. I quickly sold the game to one of people in my game group who liked it.
This is probably a good game with/for kids. However, if you are looking for at least a small degree of strategy, you would likely want to avoid this particular game.
If you really like random games, exploding kittens is a far better option than Tsuro in my opinion since kittens doesn't feel as repetitive as quickly.
At the start of the game you set your piece at the edge of the board and with each tile you lay on the board you follow the lines on the board. The only rule really is that you can't purposely make yourself go off the edge so if you have a tiles you can lay that would keep you alive then you have to play that tile.
I've played this game with my 5 years old and my 10 year old and they both love it. It's not a hard game to pick up so if you're looking for a game that the whole family can play I highly suggest this one.
The premise is that you (and up to 7 other players) are dragons, flying around the board. You place a tile on the board and place your dragon on one of the lines printed on the tile. You then move your dragon along the line to the end of the tile. Everyone else does this on their turns. On your next turn, you place another tile adjacent to the one you played previously, so that the lines of the two tiles line up. You then move your dragon along the new line until it terminates. The winner of the game is the one who stays on the board the longest. That's it.
While it sounds boring and simple, the game has some strategy involved. The tiles drawn are random, so it's very possible to draw three tiles that ultimately throw you off the board; or could throw an opponent off. You must plan ahead to ensure that you don't get put into such a position. However, there's not much use in planning more than 1-2 moves in advance, as your opponents' moves will (near the end of the game) greatly affect your plays.
With more than 4-5 players, the game would get hectic very quickly. I've only played with 4 people, but it was still really fun. The first 4-5 turns are relatively boring, as the other players' tiles generally won't interact with your own. It's when you begin linking tiles that things get really interesting and unforeseen connections are made that win or lose the game.
The game plays out (with 4 players) in about 10-15 minutes, so it's a great game to break out while waiting for the rest of your group to arrive. It's also a nice break between longer games like Settlers of Catan or Lords of Waterdeep. Simple, fun, and quick. Can't ask for much more!
The production value of the game is quite high as well. The tiles come on ~2mm thick, plastic-coated cardboard tiles. The playing board is also of similar quality. The "dragon" pieces are plastic, which disappointed me a little, as I thought they'd be stone or some other "higher quality" material. But they're fine as they are. I can see this game lasting a very long time. My only real complaint is that there's no frame into which you could play the tiles. As such, they tend to slide around on the board a little as the interior pieces are played. Having a frame of some kind to keep the pieces lined up would be nice, but is more to satisfy my nit-picky personality.
Two enthusiastic thumbs-up for this one!
They hadn't played this game yet either so we all learned together, which took all of three seconds. The game, though very simple, is surprisingly fun and tricky. We love how you have rethink your strategies and plans as others come into your paths and how now two game experiences will ever be the same.
The game itself is absolutely beautiful, with great detailed artwork. It is really well put together. The board, the pieces, the card tiles, even the directions are just so pretty and delicate looking we enjoy just looking at the game. We quickly bought this game as soon as we got back home in Florida and have played it many many times since.
We love that so many people can play at once so no friends get left out when we have a crowd. We call this our "starter game" because it is so simple and easy to learn, even the least experienced gamers can catch on and get in a gaming mode with a quick game of Tsuro. Even though we plan to only play one game before starting a more involved and lengthy game our guests often request that we play a second or even third time because they enjoy it so much.
It's a great light game that is both elegant and beautiful. Th

It's simple to play for sure but is deceptively tactical too.
The pacing of the game is fast no game should last long, perhaps 30 minutes at most for maximum player count.
I can see it scaling well with player counts, there shouldn't be a lot of down time between turns.
The more players involved makes the tension rises faster because in the later stages, players will start dropping out quickly, as there's less room to maneuver and the end will leave you wanting to play again, at least it did for me.
A visually beautiful game with high quality components, should give you a couple of games per session if part of your games night.
It’s not a game of high excitement, but more of a nice and relaxing game to unwind and give your head a break. My 5 year old boy picked it up without a problem. I bought this initially to play with my work colleagues... but I think I’ll keep it at home as a family game. It’s something that pretty much anyone can enjoy and jump straight into playing it.
It’s replayable as the possibilities are endless, so you won’t get bored easily.
What I like about it is that you control the outcome to a degree and has an element of choice and skill... not just a game of luck.
I look forward to playing the sea variant with more possibilities!
Beautiful components too - you can play with upto 8 people as well which makes it great for when you have a few friends round.
I totally get the criticism that it lacks depth - it does - you wouldn't be all night playing it but it's great for an hour or so before moving into something else.
Really can't stress enough how wonderful this game looks and what good quality it is.
It's been a huge hit in my household!
