The golden age of the Tokugawa Shogunate has begun. Celebrate the Edo period of Japan as a Clan Elder and appease the new Shogun by completing missions and thwarting your competition in the process in the Yedo Board Game.
Yedo is a strategy game where players must decide between completing as many missions as possible and thwarting their competition’s efforts to complete similar missions. Players may also attempt to appease the Shogun with private meetings, or purchase luxury goods from European merchants. The player with the most prestige points at the end of the game is the winner.
Yedo is best described as a Euro game that fluidly blends the most common board game mechanics while still maintaining a beautiful, engaging theme. The game uses the auction mechanic to collect the resources needed to complete missions and the worker placement mechanic to acquire specific items or actions depending on a players strategy.
The event cards in Yedo add an element of randomness to the game that will require players to adjust their strategy on a whim. One tsunami or earthquake can completely change the course of the game, so excellent preparation and calculations are needed to impress the Shogun.
