Pencil First Games will be releasing the Japanese themed tile laying game, The One Hundred Torii, this Spring. In the game players will lay out a garden path, in which to traverse along, while encountering a variety of characters along the way. Whoever scores the most Journey Points wins! The game is for one to four players, ages 8+, plays in 45 to 60 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $39.99 when it arrives in April.
From Pencil First:
Life’s a journey, not a destination. Find your path in a beautiful Japanese garden. In the Japanese tradition, the torii gate marks the transition into the sacred. Travel from fountains to flowers to shrines passing through as many torii gates as possible, while meeting vendors, poets, and even Samurai along the way.
The traveler goes
through the ancient torii gate—
Leaf falls in water
Earn the most journey points by expanding the garden and walking through as many torii gates as possible as you move between similar landmarks and perform actions (get help, expand the garden, claim rewards, and draw tiles). Earn additional advantages and points by interacting with characters in the garden such as poets, samurai, gardeners, vendors, and geishas. Maybe you will be first to visit each landmark 5 times or maybe you will interact with same character 3 times. Your journey to the most points may lead you down a different path every time!
