Tsuro Game Review


January 12, 2012

If you have a boy (or man) who is into role playing games or comic books – this is a game for you. Dragons – getting blocked from finding your path along the way….old fashioned fun.   It sounds complicated but the game is pretty simple.  For younger kids I think it can teach some lessons about how the choices you make can impact you….

About the Game
Create your own journey with Tsuro…the Game of the Path.Place a tile and slide your stone along the path created, but take care! Other players’ paths can lead you in the wrong direction—or off the board entirely! Find your way wisely to succeed. The rules are simple: you place a tile to build the next step for your stone to follow.

Paths will cross and connect, and the choices you make affect all the journey across the board. Stay the path—your journey begins here.
  • 1 game board
  • 1 Dragon tile
  • 8 markers
  • 35 playing tiles
  • Tsuro is recommended for 2-8 players ages 8 and up.

About the company
At Calliope we develop and publish tabletop games for the “Family”. Calliope is focused on pulling families and friends back to the recreation room table in an era where occupations and digital mediums are constantly soaking up each minute of one’s day. It is our intent to facilitate communication of families and their relationships through analog tabletop gaming experiences.
As such, we are very aware of the burdens created by today’s economy. The reality is they are changing the way families are allocating their entertainment dollars. All Calliope games are priced to meet those restraints and retail at or under $30. More importantly, the games are fun for the entire family! In most instances, our games entertain 2 to 6 players and sometimes up to 8. They always play in under 60 min. but typically play in 40 min. or less. They are accessible by players of 8 years of age and up; in other words, we do our best to write the rules so that children as young as 8 years of age can read and understand the game without the direction of Mom and Dad. The key is this… Calliope branded games are games that Mom and Dad will prefer to play after the kids have long gone to bed.
