Back in August when I first found out about a new edition of Zendo coming out I couldn’t contain my excitement. I finally had a chance to actually sit down and play while at PAX Unplugged a few weeks back. Now, my own copy arrived and I just had to rip it open and get some pics.
You may notice a few things in the pictures below. First, the Buddhist theme has been removed from the game. Looney Labs even made sure to point this out in with a note left in the package sent to reviewers. The game is now marketed as a pure abstract. Also, there are new shapes to be used. Now you not only get pyramids but rectangular prisms and wedges, too. Not only that, but there’s only one size for each shape, and the pips traditionally found on Looney Labs pyramids have been removed.
All in all, this is a beautiful edition of the game, and I can’t wait to sit down and introduce my kids to a game I love so much.
