I first wrote about Onitama back in April of 2016 while I was still writing for Purple Pawn. Back then I wrote that the game was “a game that I believe will stand the test of time” and that it would “always have a spotlight space on my game shelf.” That hasn’t changed much and I’m excited to say that the 16 card expansion to the game, Sensei’s Path, adds a wonderful amount of diversity to the game without sacrificing the core simplicity of the game.
Bringing the total amount of Onitama cards to 32, Sensei’s Path includes the following:
- Sea Snake
These cards add a bit more fluidity to player’s moves, containing more jumps and ways to really get around the board in interesting new ways. While certainly not a necessity, this pack is an excellent addition to any serious Onitama fan. It also comes inside a micro version of the base game’s box. It’s a bit overkill but certainly looks good on the shelf.
