If you’re looking for a game that’s simple to play, can handle up to 8 players of any age, and doesn’t take too long then we suggest you give Tsuro a try.



Can the whole family enjoy Tsuro?

Absolutely. Tsuro is a very simple board game to play with all members of your family. While there isn’t a ton of strategy involved, you do get to make choices that can help determine your fate. But everyone else on the board is also trying to determine your fate. They want you off the board.

Because you’re picking random tiles, you may be limited in your options. So it’s up to you to make the most of what you get. But at the same time, the random tile draw means that the younger players also have a chance to upset the older players. And it’s this mix of luck with some decisions that makes it a good family game for all ages.

And if they’re really young players, they can just have fun playing tiles and moving their piece along the path while the older players build their path toward each other trying to force each other off the board.

Will anyone be bored?

Sometimes with family games some players start to wander when it’s not their turn or just sit and wish the game would end. Not with Tsuro. Because the options on the board shrink with every tile played, everyone stays engaged because their future path may be dictated by another player. And since there is a finite number of spaces on the board to play a tile, that also means that the game doesn’t last long enough to get bored.

How does Tsuro score on the "Let’s Play Again" meter?

Tsuro is a board game that always begs to be played again. The great thing about the length of Tsuro is that it allows you to stop when you’re ready. It plays very quickly and you never feel like it’s dragging on. So you can stack on a number of games in a row for more fun.

If you can handle the simplicity it's a very under-rated game.
