At a lower price point, I would be terribly tempted to buy this game. I like the setting, and the traditional style artwork really helps establish that setting. I like the sandbox approach and the diverse character types suggest that a wide range of stories could emerge from that sandbox. And there are wooden tokens, including little wooden torii arches. But it's a deckbuilder and the dice are only used in solitaire play, which are both negatives for me. And that mechanism of drawing an opponent's cards and then discarding one makes it seem like the best cards will rarely enter play. I would love to try before buying, but I doubt that anybody I know will buy it.

It's on Tabletopia , but I think it is a premium game. Maybe once it is released to retail, they will make it free to play so you can try before you buy.
