Build Beautiful Pagodas
Super Meeple HAS announced that they are publishing Tajuto, an original game from legendary designer Dr. Reiner Knizia. In Tajuto, players take on the role of Buddhist monks commissioned to construct eight beautiful pagodas in 6th Century Japan.
Tajuto is a game of timing and calculated risk. Players use their action tiles and spend meditation points to draw pagoda floors from a communal bag, make offerings to the different pagodas, and acquire a variety of tiles that provide more actions and spirituality points. The great pagodas are built floor by floor and, while players may time their placement before and/or after their actions, any playable pagoda pieces must be added to the Sacred Garden before the end of the turn. Thus, the timing with which players draw more floors, place their offerings on the pagodas, and purchase new powerful tiles requires the eye and patience of a trained monk. Once a fourth pagoda has been completed, the game ends and the monk with the most spirituality is declared the “Great Guardian of the Sacred Garden of the Eight Pagodas”.
Luma Imports will handle the English-language distribution of Tajuto across the Unites States and Canada. Tajuto is the second original title from Super Meeple, following the September release of Colors of Paris.
Tajuto will be released in Q1 of 2020.
