Carved into the crags of the mist-shrouded mountains of ancient Japan lies the Shrine of Onitama. It is a place of enlightenment and skill, a site dedicated to the spirits that guide the Schools of Martial Arts across the land.
Onitama is a two-player abstract strategy game where you take on the role of a Master, guiding your monk followers, in an attempt to defeat your opponent. Armed only with several moves, your wit, and cunning, do you have the skill to be victorious?
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!
There are two methods to achieve victory in Onitama. The first is to capture your opponent’s Master, by landing on it with any of your pieces. The second is to move your Master across the board into your opponent’s Temple Arch space.
