Kamisado Original – the European Version
Be the first to place a dragon tower in your opponent’s ‘home row’! It seems easy, until you discover Kamisado’s unexpected tactical depth. The rules are simple. Move a tower any number of spaces in a straight line, forwards or diagonally forwards. But the colour of the square you land on determines which tower your opponent moves next. The gameplay is identical to that for Kamisado Classic, but the artwork and the ‘look and feel’ of the game components are very different. As the game unfolds, your towers will be promoted to ‘Sumos’, and will have the ability to push your opponent’s pieces backwards, earning you extra turns. The situations continue to become more complex and challenging, until one player accumulates the required winning total.
