Nice review, Tom!

The pedant in me needs to point out that Qi is pronounced "chee", not "key", though

By the by, when your board is overrun, you still get a turn. The only thing you skip is the placement of a new ghost--i.e., phase 3 of Yin phase. You still get a Yang phase.

Woo! More co-op board games!

Thanks for the review, even though it's *hard*, I still want to check this out

It's a totally awesome game, especially when you get that first win...total elation.

Thanks for the review, Tom. I really appreciate it.

I love the cover artwork and the fact that it's a cooperative game with a cool theme, but I can't stand to look at the layout of the actual game. It just looks so busy and fiddly and makes the game seem overly complex, I think.

I guess I will try this game if I ever get the chance, but I won't be unhappy if that never happens.

Great review as always, Tom! This game seems really interesting, but I wish that it went higher than 4 players, considering that my game group is usually at least 5.

Two other rules issues:

When you roll the token symbol on the curse die, you lose ALL Tao tokens (the video suggested only one).

You do not lose automatically when all twelve spaces are filled with Ghosts (the video suggested you did).

Sounds like there's little threat of downtime. Always a plus.
