Boston FIG 2017 – Shiki

One of the first games to catch my eye on my initial walkthrough of the Boston FIG floor was Shiki by Lido Labs.

Shiki is a card drafting game where players are trying to create Haikus, each round creating a line of their poem. Bonus points are awarded at the end of the game for players who can stick to the 5-7-5 syllable structure of a Haiku.

An additional way to earn points is by playing “seasonal” cards. A majority of the cards in a Shiki deck are themed by Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall artwork. Players who have the most card of a single Season earn bonus points at the end of the game.

I had a chance to sit down and play Shiki and had a wonderful time. The game should be hitting Kickstarter soon, and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on a copy.
