Yamatai is a strategy game for 2-4 players, with modular board and rout building mechanics at its core. Players sail their ships, collect resources from nearby islands, claim territories on the archipelago, and employ specialists with unique abilities – all to build palaces and Torii for the glory of Yamatai’s new capital city, and for the beautiful Queen Himiko’s smile!
Yamatai is a so-called “point salad” game, offering a variety of different ways a player can score points. The game doesn’t has a single focus, which gives players a certain freedom in their decision-making. There are several game-ending conditions as well, which means the game could end in a number of different scenarios – the players then count points for buildings built, specialists hired, and money on hand. The most successful builder wins!
In addition to being a well-designed strategy board game, Yamatai features beautifully made components – a real eye-candy!
