Queen Himiko has assigned every builder of the kingdom to build the capital of Yamataï, in a way that will make it the most prestigious city of the archipelago. Of course, as builders each one of you aspires to be rewarded by the Queen and become the greatest builder of Yamataï.

In Yamataï, you use different strategies in order to score prestige points. You seek to recruit powerful specialists that will come to your assistance, you can use the resources carried by the boats to construct buildings on the islands or you can collect money. However, you are not alone, since other builders compete for Queen Himiko’s favor, as well. And only one of you can be declared winner…

Yamataï features an impressive artwork that takes you to ancient Asia. It is coming out from Days of Wonder and is due for release during spring-time.

I got to know the world of board games along with NinjaBoy several years ago. So we both ended up getting hooked on playing, until we finally decided to create this website, so that boardgamers from all over the world will gather around. I am a translator and a copywriter. Making this site, as well as working on it every single day, has been a great experience and we are happy to know that it has brought together people who share the same love for board games. So, choose your character, shuffle your deck and roll your dice, for there are some board game stories here to explore!
