Check out Onitama!

Onitama, by Arcane Wonder, is a two-player ‘perfect information’ 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.

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?

This game is super easy to learn and had a ton of strategy.  Since the possible moves available to everyone are always known, planning ahead can be done, but watch out for tricksey opponents!

The game is beautiful with really high quality, simple miniatures.  The board is a roll-up playmat  Rated a 7.7 on Board Game Geek, this is really just a fantastic game.
