Description Edit | History

Paiko is a one-on-one turn based strategy game optimized to cater to intuitive players.

The board and tiles have a Japanese block art aesthetic, which has been cast into black and white for the convenience of print and play. Everything needed to play is provided on our website.

In Paiko, your main objective is to spread out your tiles and block off your opponent's -- capturing your opponent's tiles is a pleasant secondary objective.

You win Paiko by getting 10 points, and you amass points by positioning your tiles in aggressive places on the board. You gain:
0 points for tiles in the safety of your own homeground
1 point for tiles in the even-footed middle ground
2 points for tiles in your opponent's homeground.

On your turn, you can choose to do one of three things: place a tile on the board, move a tile already on the board, or draw 3 more tiles of your choosing. You start the game with a hand of 8 tiles (if white), or 10 tiles (if black). Because Paiko has 8 kinds of tiles, much strategy is involved in choosing your starting hand, and choosing when to spend time building your hand by drawing tiles.
