Pai Sho

A classic game of strategy and skill.




Inspired by Go, Chess, and other classic strategy games, Pai Sho is a game of timeless value and beauty. The game is minimalistic by design, with a simple board and tile design reminiscent of the ancient games played by the Greeks and Japanese. With 54 unique tiles at your disposal, your objective is to restore harmony and balance to the board by mastering the natural movement and characteristics of the tiles.

Two Pai Sho variations are included with the set: Ancient Pai Sho and Elemental Pai Sho. However, there are many other ways to play, including "Skud" Pai Sho and solitaire. With such a versatile tile set, you may even choose to develop your own game to play. For ideas, check out the community list at Pai Sho Project.


1 Pai Sho Board - 108 Game Tiles (54 for each player) - 2 Harmony Rings (1 for each player) - 1 Rules Booklet - 2 Parts Bags
