Queen Himiko has tasked every builder in the kingdom with a prestigious mission: build the capital of Yamataï and make it the jewel of the archipelago. Your task: surpass your competitors and build the most prestigious city of them all, using resources from the fleets that travel through the kingdom.
This is Yamatai - the latest board game by Days of Wonder.
Players compete to build palaces, torii, and their own buildings in the land of Yamataï. The game includes ten numbered action tiles, each showing one or more coloured ships and with most showing a special action. You shuffle these tiles, place them in a row, then reveal one more than the number of players.
Clear the different islands of the archipelago to recruit powerful specialists that will assist you, or use the resources carried by the boats that navigate between them to construct buildings on the islands! And, if you’re skilled enough, try creating prestigious buildings such as high temples or rare torii.
However, you are not alone in competing for Queen Himiko’s favour… will you manage to surpass your opponents?
