TSURO - Guest Review
by Brian Linnen
Last week at Comix Connection-Mechanicsburg's Tuesday "Board Game Night" we played another brand new game. This one is from WizKids and is called TSURO.
No lie - it takes about sixty seconds to learn the rules to this game! Basically, you move your piece around the board on a winding path. You build the path as you go by placing tiles. As you place the tiles to extend your path, you also try to force your opponents off the board. Why? Because the last player on the board is the winner.
We played with five people and each game took about 10-15 minutes. With five players, we didn't usually get close enough to our opponents to influence their path until the last few turns, but it was still very fun. I imagine that with even more players (it plays 2-8), it can get quite crazy!
For two weeks in a row, all of us really enjoyed our introduction to a new game. I don't think it's because we are all easy to impress - I think it's because the game companies are bringing out some extremely solid products just in time for the holidays. Tsuro is well worth looking into.
