May is the month leading up to the UK Games Expo

The level of anticipation and excitement is almost the same as December leading up to Christmas.

One of my favourite games that I discovered at last year's UKGE was Onitama. A simple and elegant two player game which I've played with my children as well as my "serious" gaming friends - and everybody likes it.

In memory of last year's discovery, this month's competition offers you the choice of winning Onitama or one of three other oriental themed games which I have had the pleasure of playing in the past year: Takenoko, Tokaido or Tsuro. Three family friendly games which can also be enjoyed by more serious gamers, and all of which happen to begin with "T".

  • Onitama: move like a monkey/snake/frog to control the board
  • Takenoko: bamboo and a panda, what more do you need?
  • Tokaido: tourism and ramen in ancient Japan
  • Tsuro: the path of the dragon
