A pure Japanese style board game "Katsuyama water" that places virtues and arranges stones side-by-side

A garden production board game which sold-out had been continuing even if going to a game shop temporarily with so much popularity "Blanched waterThanks to the fact that it became a new version, I finally got it, so I tried playing it.

Katsuyama water New version - New Games Order, LLC.

◆ Game preparation
In the package there is a tasteful illustration by Mamada Yuseke. The author of the game is Mr. Yamada Kota.

When opening the lid, it looks like this.

Suitable for the name of "Katsuyama", the stones lining up in the garden are tightly packed.

45 g if it is big, I feel a little weight in hand.

There are plenty of stones, but if you divide by type, there are five kinds of stones, Tateishi (Large), Tateishi (Small), Wolverite, Beside Stone, Funa stone as arranged in this picture.

The back of each stone is marked so as not to mistake the type.

And this is boards. Temple board from the left, 4 garden boards, 80 sand tile tiles (4 sheets worth).

9 cards cards, 14 name garden cards.

Four pieces of Zen priests and four circle pieces. The number of players is from 2 to 4, but those with more people are fun.

Before the first play, you need to remove the tile from the seat. Then flip it inside and mix well.

Place the tiles in 9 mountains in the garden part of the temple board ......

I will arrange stones in the garden behind. As the stones are arranged in the garden later by the players, it is more convenient to summarize the types by type so that you can see which stone. There are graduations from 0 to 80 in the surroundings, but this is a track for checking victory points after the game is ended, and not used during the game.

The temple board center is "Tokuto point track" like this and shows how much each virtue is now using the yen piece. Depending on the value of the virtue that you accumulate, you can place stones in your own garden.

This completes preparation for starting the game.

At the beginning of the game, the garden board and the Zen priests are arranged like this, and the name garden cards and artist cards are handed out one by one. Be careful not to see this card by other players.

The "name garden card" means that bonus points will be entered if stones are arranged as drawn on this card at the end of the game. This is "Tofukuji", if you place a stone (small) marked with a triangle in the upper left corner of the garden, a horizontal stone (□) at the lower right of it, and some sort of stone (□) at the center of the right, You can get 10 points.

There are 10 to 15 points in the name garden depending on the ease of reproduction. This is 15 points of "Saikyoji" and we have to put 4 stones. Also, since there is a rule that "stones can not be kept adjacent vertically and horizontally in principle", in order to put two adjacent stones drawn in the center row, "When a moss tile is on a stone It is necessary to use the rule that you can do it ".

"Card house card" is a help card that you can use only once per person during the game. For example, "Dream Window Sparse Stone" has the effect of "take a stone from the temple board and place it on any tile in your garden."

"Sesshu" draws three tiles from the deck, picks one out of them and puts it in one's own garden, the other two are discarded. " Either gardener helps players here, so the point of use is important.

◆ Start the game
This time, the name garden of myself (Orange) was "Tensakuan", and the artist card was "Sesshu". Tenshuan is a garden where three stones are arranged, two of which can be any kind of stone, so it is a garden that I want to positively target.

First, draw your tile when your turn comes. At this time, I will show all the tiles.

We will do either "placement" "transfer" "disposal" "storage" about this tile. "Placement" puts in place adjacent to the arranged tile, "assignment" gives 2 tickets to the desired person by giving the tile, "discard" discards it in the box without putting the tile and loses 1 virtue , "Keeping" puts tiles in temporary storage. Immediately after the game is started, virtue is 0 so "disposal" can not be done, but not necessarily "arrange", but it is OK even if someone wants to transfer.

Declare "placement". Place the first tile on the upper left or the lower left.

This time it is located in the lower left. And put the Zen priests on this.

This is "Procedure 1" in the turn, followed by "Step 2". Procedure 2: "Get a virtue with Zen meditation" "Move the Zen priests one mass on the placed tile" "Set virtue back to 0 to set a stone on a tile in a column with Zen priests" Choose one from four to get the effect of stated by putting out the card house card. "

It is right after the start, so I zapped and accumulated virtue.

Player's hand turn number. The tile pulled in is such a small swirl.

This is a tile that turns into a semicircle if you connect it to the tile you placed earlier. In this game, besides the arrangement of stones, how to arrange the sand tile is also very important, if you make a semicircle with a sandpaper, you will construct one point per tile constituting it, if you make a true circle You get two points per tile. However, when the boundary of sandprints can not be connected, please be careful because it is minus 2 points per one place. ...... In other words, if you get this tile, it means that you can make a semicircle and become a point, so I tried to claim "I want it!"

However, because there was still the first piece of paper, blue declared "placement" and placed it on the upper left of the garden. After this "placement" declaration, it is also possible to consume 2 virtues and "robbery" the tiles.

Player black won the morning tile and placed it in the lower left.

The player also places the first piece on the upper left.

Blue in the second round gained a large vortex tile of a different size from the vortex. If the size of the vortex is different, a semicircle can not be constructed.

Blue takes a tile for sale, but because there was nobody who wanted anyone, I kept it in a temporary storage place. When you have your turn, you can place the stored tile before and after step 1, and you can exchange it with the tile you drew. However, "You can not transfer / discard tiles that were originally in temporary storage space by replacing the tiles you drew and the tile in the temporary placement place".

Everyone's virtues have gathered.

Where two virtues came, Orange placed the first stone.

The stone has different virtues depending on its type, but if 6 virtues are accumulated it is possible to place the stone got anywhere in the garden. Since virtues can only be accumulated up to six, it is important not just to accumulate virtue but to use it moderately. In addition, victory will return to 0 when you win a stone.

Next time, blue gets a stone. Because there is only one tile in the column with Zen priests, we put it on the tile where Zen priests are now.

At this time, a bonus move occurs and you can move Zen priests one frame. Normally, Zen priests have to move in step 2, so where you want to take advantage of this bonus move well.

Eventually, everyone came up to place stones one by one in the garden. As the number of tiles in the garden is assignable, not everyone will advance with the same number of tiles.

Black places moss tiles in the middle row of the garden. There are many tiles only with sand, and there is no tile that covers the whole moss, so placing this type of moss tile in this position is quite an exception. I definitely aim for something.

While doing that, my garden is the 4 remaining. Since the flow of the sandpaper is connected cleanly so far, I would like to connect moss at the center upper part and the lower part well well. Therefore, the artist "Sesshu" comes in. You can see that the effect of drawing three tiles from a deck and placing a favorite one among them is quite powerful.

However, what things it is, the 3 pictures I drew are tiles with no moss. No matter how much the gardener is strong, if the drawing of the tile is weak ... ....

Black also issued artist "Zen ama". The effect is "draw two tiles from the deck and put them in your own garden in any order", if you do not need it can be discarded without virtue consumption. This is also strong, ... ....

I want the moss tiles for the remaining three, two of them, but the tiles that have drawn are big eddy tiles ... ....

However, here, Blue noticed that semicircle can be made by combining temporary storage cards and said "I want it". The pointed point is the transferred tile, blue is the next turn and if you place the temporary place tile in the space above, a big semicircle is completed. This was a transfer of Win-Win.

By loading virtue, we could place a funeral on the moss in front. In order to reproduce the Tenunan, it is only to put the recumbent in the center. Moss tiles have already been placed so that they can be placed properly next to each other. (Just because you make stones next to each other, you do not need to have a pattern of moss connected.)

The remaining 5 black gardens. Here, although it is a moss tile, I gave out a tile that does not connect well with the moss I have now.

This tile is perfect for moss on the row for you. "I really want it!", But it has been "kept". I'd like to 'robob' at such times, but because of the stone placement earlier, there is not enough virtue ....

And, I went back to my 2 garden. What I gave you is a tile with only sandprints that I can not connect anyway.

This is another blue saying "I want it". Actually, when I tried blue, a pair of small vortexed tiles that I arranged first did not come out forever, and it was a tile of a ship that I went over to where I did not get buried until the end.

And blue finally drew the 15th tile. The game will not end until all of the 15 tiles are placed, but if someone arranges 15 tiles, after that you will not be able to "transfer" or "discard" in step 1. Also, if you got it, skip step 1 and do step 2 only.

I got a chance by assigning a tile with whirlpool to the blue, but it was again sand that I took the next turn ... .... Since blue has already arranged 15 tiles, there is only placement or storage afterwards.

Arranged after noticing that it will not connect with the next moss.

As opposed to orange, black wants tiles with only sand, but moss is struggling and suffering. Even if you exchange it with the tile you keep, it will not fit any way with the surrounding sand.

And purple draws the 15th piece and arranges it.

This concludes the game and enters calculation of victory points.

Place the Zen priests in the garden at "0" at the corner of the temple board.

There is a place where you can not see whether "Katsuyama water" is winning or losing even if you can see each other's gardens, and the process by which each person's score can be seen in the calculation is also a pleasure.

Therefore, we will issue each number for each element point.

The first is the "foundation point of sand", which adds the area of ​​the largest part of the section composed of tiles with only sand. In the figure below, 6 points in horizontal 2 × vertical 3.

When calculating each, the top is 8 in purple, followed by orange and blue in 6 points, black in 3 points.

The second is "the foundation point of moss." Two moss enters for each moss tile. There are 5 sheets in the figure below, so we have 10 points.

Here the black drawn by the moss tiles stretched out a big point and it got to the top at a stretch.

The third is "Symmetry Bonus". If five rows are symmetrical, 5 rows per row are entered. Although it is not this time play, in the example below, the upper row and the lower row are symmetrical, respectively, so 10 points with 5 points × 2.

The fourth "eddy bonus" is the number of tiles x 2 if it is a true circle, the number of tiles x 1 if it is a semicircle. In the example below, since there are two semicircles made of two pieces, four points of 1 × 2 × 2. Some tiles have semicircles drawn on one sheet, so if you can get one, one point, if you align two pieces and make a true circle it is four points.

Black is a lot of moss, so I can not make a swirl much, so I will catch up with other players here.

And fifth, "Evaluation of sandpaper". Two minus points per boundary of unconnected tiles, seven points if all 15 are connected. The following example is not connected at two places with red marks, so it is minus 4 points. Neither of these examples successfully connected moss. Basically, if it is sand, the side is sure to be connected, but when the tiles that make up the circle come out it becomes difficult to connect in the vertical direction.

This place is the only place where there is a possibility that the point may be minus. As a result, if you get a solid bonus here, there will be a big difference. Even in this play, only blue is connected with all the sandprints, and the other three can not be connected. As a result, there are actually as many as eleven differences from top to bottom ... ....

The sixth is "the foundation of stone". 2 points per stone placed in the garden. There are five kinds of stones, so it is a maximum of 10 points. In the following gardens, all the stones arranged are different kinds, so 8 kinds in 4 kinds.

The seventh is "Evaluation of stones". "Keima Arranger Bonus" (2 Keima Placement Bonus) to place 2 stones on the diagonal of the 2 × 3 tile (1 point 5 points), "diagonally placed bonus" that arranges 3 stones on the 3 × 3 tile diagonal line (7 "Horaiyama Bonus" (10 persons only) for arranging two Tateishi (large) in the upper row next to it, Tateishi (small), Tateishi (Large), Tateishi (small) in the upper row ) "Sanshin Stone Bonus" (1 person · 15 points), "Wrestone Bonus" (1 point 3 points) to place a lost stone in the middle column, place a fox stone in the lower row " Fauxstone Bonus "(3 points - only one faucet in the garden) will be added.

As a caveat, when Keima & Keima, Keima & diagonal can be formed, it is impossible to count duplicate stones. Also, Keima - diagonally, if there are other stones in the tile of the establishment requirement, the bonus will not be established. Therefore, only one oblique placement bonus should be established in one garden. On the other hand, in the case of combinations such as "Keima & Horaiyama" and "Diagonal & Funashi", duplicate count of stones is OK.

In the case of this garden, there are two types of Keima from the bottom of the lower staircase as starting points, but the Keima Placement bonus is not established because the reclining stones enter in either 2 × 3 area. Because the Wolic Bonus and Fontenone Bonus are established, 6 points.

The eighth is the "name garden bonus". If you can reproduce the gardens of the first garden card dealt, the score written on the card will be added. Oran has succeeded in reproducing Tensenan, 11 points.

How, Black also succeeded in reproducing Ruin Minorin and gained 13 points. The moss on that middle stage was for arranging two of this stone (small).

At this point, the top is orange (41 points). Blue continues at 40 points, black which reproduced the name garden does not enter stone bonus at all, 32 points, purple 30 points. ...... But finally, I convert it as "virtue" left at the end of the game 1 point = 1 victory point.

To the orange which used up virtue, blue which had been tying the tiles quickly was accumulating 2 virtues, so add 2 points last. At the last minute, blue was reversed by virtue of virtue.

Actually, blue was aiming at giving up the name garden as soon as the moss tile could not be successfully done, aiming for diagonal placement bonus (7 points), faux stone bonus (3 points), and sand pattern evaluation (7 points) It turned out to be.

Each final garden looks something like this. First of all, it is an orange garden.

Blue garden

Black garden

Purple garden

Looking at this way, the orange and black stuck to the name garden did not arrange unreasonable moss tiles to put the stones, as a result of which it was impossible to select the tiles freely at the end of the game, the tiles not connected to the boundary were not placed I can not understand that I lost points. The blue garden is a calm garden suitable for the top, convinced by the defeat. Instead of following the reproduction of the name garden, it may be a trick to how to make your own garden.

In addition, the estimated playing time is 60 minutes to 90 minutes, so I got used to playing in just about 60 minutes.

"Katsuyasui" is currently exhibited new and second-hand goods on the marketplace at Amazon.co.jp. In the case of a new article, the price at the time of writing the article was 11,980 yen.
