From Feuerland Spiele:
In Fuji, you play as a group of adventurers on their way to Japan‘s most famous volcano, Mount Fuji. But just before you arrive at your destination, the earth begins to shake and the volcano erupts! Now your group must escape the deadly lava flows as quickly as possible to reach the safe village.
In this cooperative dice game, players simultaneously and secretly roll their dice behind their screens in each round. During the game, you must find the best way across a certain number of terrain cards to the safe village for each player. Each terrain card has a given dice requirement. You can move to a card only if you match this requirement better than both your neighbors — but since you know only your own dice and can communicate only vaguely, you will need both skill and luck to save yourselves.
Designer Wolfgang Warsch created The Mind, one of my group’s favorite 2018 releases, so I was pretty excited about Fuji even before I had a chance to read the rulebook (PDF). Now that I have read the rules, I’m pretty confident that this is a game that my group will enjoy. It’s a limited communication game, but with dice!
Fuji will be releasing early in 2019. In the meantime, you can check out Fuji’s BGG page for more info. Remember to come back soon to see our Fuji review!
