Object of the Game

Be the first to place a dragon tower in your opponent’s ‘home row’! It seems straightforward at first, but then you discover Kamisado’s unexpected tactical depth! The rules are simple. Move a tower any number of spaces in a straight line, either directly forwards or diagonally forwards. But the colour of the square you land on determines which tower you move next.

History of Kamisado Original

Kamisado Original is the first version that we published with our German distribution partners, Huch & Friends (otherwise known as Hutter Trade). Up until that point (in 2010) the only version on the market had been Kamisado Classic, aimed at the UK market.

Unexpected Tactical Depth!

Be the first to place a dragon tower in your opponent’s ‘home row’! It seems straightforward at first, but then you discover Kamisado’s unexpected tactical depth! The rules are simple. Move a tower any number of spaces in a straight line, either directly forwards or diagonally forwards. But the colour of the square you land on determines which tower your opponent move next. The gameplay is identical to that for Kamisado Classic, but the artwork and ‘look and feel’ of the game components is very different.

Sumo Towers and Sumo Pushes

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.

Spiel des Jahres Recommendation List

In 2010, Kamisado was included in the Recommendation List (Empfehlungsliste) for Spiel de. Jahres.

Spiel des Jahres was created in 1978 with the stated purpose of rewarding excellence in game design, and promoting top-quality games in the German market (Wikipedia).
