Renegade Game Studios has partnered with Lautapelit.fi to release a Honshu, a city building card game, in North America.
Honshu is a map-building card game set in feudal Japan. Players are lords and ladies of noble houses seeking new lands and opportunities for fame and fortune.
One game of Honshu lasts twelve rounds, and each round is divided into two phases. First, map cards are played in a trick, and the player who played the highest valued card gets to pick first from those cards played. Then the players use the map cards picked to expand their personal maps. Each player must expand their personal maps to maximize their scoring possibilities. Manipulating your position in the player order is crucial for mastering Honshu.
Look for Honshu at friendly local game stores in North America and online. Honshu takes about 30-40 minutes to play and is for 2-5 players ages 8+.
