Onitama is a two player abstract strategy game where players take on the role of a Master, guiding their monk followers, attempting to defeat your opponent armed only with a handful of moves, your cunning and your wits! Onitama is the new game in the Dice Tower Essential line; games loved and adored by noted reviewer, Tom Vasel, that he believes are essential to every gamer’s collection.

In Onitama, players will vie to capture their opponent’s Master, or, traverse their Master across the board to their opponent’s Master’s starting position to win the game.  To do this, you will be armed with a handful of special and ancient maneuvers, presented on beautiful Tarot size cards, that manipulate the field of battle to your advantage.  Will you use the Dragon to overpower your opponent, the Horse to outmaneuver them, or the Cobra to strike quickly?

These special moves are not yours alone though.  In Onitama, players will shuffle the deck of moves, dealing two moves to each player to begin a game.  In addition, a 5th will be placed face up, to the side of the board.  When it is your turn, you may choose to move any piece using your cards, however, the card you choose to use will then be exchanged with the card to the side of the board.  This means your opponent will have access to that move, after their next!  Can you out-think, out-maneuver, and out-wit your opponent?

With multiple moves to make every game unique, the speed, the grace, and the unique play style of Onitama truly makes this an Essential game for any gamer’s collection!

Onitama is quick to learn, quick to set up and surprisingly deep to play. Players have 4 pawns and one master, they must either take the opposing master or move their master onto the opposing masters starting space. To do so you deal out 5 movement cards two to each player one to the middle. When a player chooses a move they swap that card with the middle card meaning all possible moves are known and shared. This creates a tense and tactical game that can be played by most ages.

This is a fantastic abstract game. I used to play Chess for years when I was young and wanted a good substitute that I could complete in a short time. The Duke is on my list, but Onitama is a brilliant game that can be wrapped up in 15 minutes and taught in less than 5 minutes. I've actually had my friends play it more than I have, just because I can pass it to them when they're waiting for us to finish.

There is a good amount of tactical depth, good variety in the movement cards and when you lose, you can't help but feel you were responsible for giving your opponent the cards to beat you. Definitely worthy of the Dice Tower Essentials.
