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 even 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. A tile expansion set, which will allow for even more creative game-play opportunities, will be available soon.
