Long ago, a vengeful god stole the stars from the night sky. To illuminate the night, hopeful people sent glowing paper lanterns floating toward the heavens. Out of nowhere, clever magical phoenixes appeared, soaring through the sky. As they flew from lantern to lantern, their enchanted touch changed the lanterns into new stars! The phoenix who can create a constellation of seven new stars will be the champion of a world looking for light!

Those who have played Tsuro before will be familiar with the strategy game and its base mechanic - players must place tiles to create lines which move their piece around the board. However, as tiles are placed, each player has the possibility of being directed off the board or crashing into another player.

Indeed, the abstract game by Tom McMurchie has become a board game classic since it was first released in 2004, and in 2012, Tsuro of the Seas bought new mechanics into the game, introducing dragons which could blow your ship off their course.

Tsuro: Phoenix Rising is the latest addition to this series. As in the base game, players place tiles and move pawns, however, this new game introduces double-sided tiles which can flip and rotate throughout the game, thereby opening up more strategic options.

The game will also feature phoenix miniatures, lantern tokens, and life tokens, which allow your phoenix to be reborn from the ashes once per game.

Tsuro: Phoenix Rising will be featuring this weekend at PAX Unplugged, and will be released in 2019.
