Ninja Star Games in partnership with Fukuroudou presents
Path to Yaaru
3~4 players : Ages 7 and up : 45~60 minutes
The designer of Wolf & Hound brings you Path to Yaaru, an Ancient Egyptian themed game about discovering your path to the heavenly paradise of the Fields Of Aaru. The game is published by Fukuroudou and will be released at Tokyo Game Market 2017 Spring. It is available for preorder through Ninja Star Games.
Path to Yaaru is a card-drafting game set in Ancient Egypt in which you head to Yaaru, the promised land, with help from the Egyptian gods. The card-drafting system has a twist in that you may not freely pick any card. Hence, while advanced players may plan deeply beforehand to control the later stages of the game, beginners may simply focus on the current state and pick from the smaller choices. Who would be the first to Yaaru, passing the obstacles alongside the path?
With cute illustrations, the game should appeal to a broader audience.
The game is published in Japanese, with English rules available online. Most components are language independent.
