Description

Onitama is a two-player, perfect information abstract game with a random starting set-up. On a 5x5 board, both players start with five pawns on their side, with the main pawn in the middle.

Each player has two open cards that each display a possible move for any of his pieces. There is a fifth card that cannot be used by either player. On a player's turn, he chooses one of his cards, moves one of his pieces according to the chosen card, then replaces the card he used with the fifth card. The other player then chooses one of his cards, moves accordingly, and exchanges that card with this fifth card — which is, of course, the card the first player just used.

Moving onto one of the opponent's pawns removes that pawn from the game. Taking the opponent's main pawn, or moving your main pawn into your opponent's main pawn's starting space, wins you the game.

A lovely gentle game

Our kids (10 & 7) love this game. It was recommended to us by the lovely staff in Athena.

A great collaboration game

A great little game where you have to work as a team to get the treasure... until one of you goes rogue!

The best sleeves for MTG

Tough, durable and they feel great

Packs arrived on time and in good condition, one or two seemed to be possibly resealed but I have faith that they weren't.

Would order again
