Shikoku - Board Game

Board Game

Available: Out of Stock
$33.00 $50.00

Shikoku is the smallest of the four main islands of Japan and famous for its 88 Buddhist temples pilgrimage.

It is said people have a year of misfortune and woes — at the age of 42 for men and 33 for women — so to be cured and avoid bad luck, pilgrims of those ages attend the temple 23 called Yakuōji and place of the Buddha of healing, Yakushi Nyorai. In every step, pilgrims leave a coin while singing the Yakushi mantra, which favors them with spiritual healing and prevents misfortune.

In Shikoku, players play the role of pilgrims who are going up the 33 steps while singing mantras until they reach the pagoda. However, the “Middle Path” seeks moderation, not the extremes: To be the first one, or the last, is not welcome!

Game Contents:

  • 1 Game Board
  • 33 Mantra Cards
  • 8 Pilgrim Cards
  • 16 Wooden Pilgrims
  • 8 Player Aid Cards
