I'm a big fan of abstract strategy puzzle games. So, Gorinto looks to be right up my alley. It's a new board game up on Kickstarter where you're trying to gain wisdom by moving stones up onto the shrine, moving them from your mountain board onto the main board. You'll change the landscape with each play. In the end, who will achieve enlightenment?
From the campaign:
Gorinto is a captivating abstract game where you must harness the power of the five elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Void) to build a shrine. You seek balance to earn you the most wisdom, based on a shared pair of goals that changes from game to game. Turns are simple but deep; you simply move a tile from the Path into the Mountain, then collect surrounding tiles based on the collection pattern and the depth of your understanding of that element. Every decision alters the landscape, grows your understanding, and charts your path forward.
The game's more than 3x funded with 14 days left to go.
