||Tatsu by Smartzone is a strategy based competitive game that is easy to understand and simple to play, but a challenge to master. The game plays much like Backgammon, and if you already know how to play that, the rules of Tatsu are easy to learn and play moves rather quickly. With the use of the dice, Tatsu is more of a game of chance and less based on strategy, but with the introduction of the Red, Blue and Green dragon pieces, extra strategy is required and play becomes much more interesting. Older children reported that they found TATSU to be exciting, which we thought was a unique description for a board game. The game’s length is just under half an hour, which felt just long enough. The playing pieces are bright and colorful, well-made and durable. Whether you are looking for a casual new game or one to really test your mental acuity, TATSU can fit the bill.
