  • Time: 45 minutes

Sagani is an abstract tile placement game with simple rules. Each player will create their own tableau of nature tiles that are one of four basic colors: blue for water, green for earth, red for fire, and white for air. Tiles are taken in turn order from the central play area. Up to five will be available on each round. Each tile has a number on it that represents its scoring value and anywhere from 1 to 4 arrows that point in different directions with each arrow one of the basic colors. For example, a blue tile could have three arrows, a white, a red, and a blue or any combination including repeat colors. You’ll place discs from your supply on the tile equal to the number of arrows. At any point during the game when an arrow points to another tile of the appropriate color, you cover the arrow with a disc from the center of its tile. When all of the arrows on a tile have been covered the tile is scored and flipped to the reverse side to indicate it is completed and scored, and the discs are returned to your supply.

If your supply of discs runs out or you don’t have enough to fill a tile you must take red discs from a common supply. Each red disc costs you a one-time 2 points on the scoring track. These can then be reuse them for the remainder of the game. This can work to your advantage in getting higher valued tiles scored when your disc supply is running low.

The end of the game is triggered when a player reaches or exceeds the set number of points as determined by the number of players. You’ll finish the round with each player having a turn. The player with the most points at the end of the round is the winner.

The tiles are colorful, and the artwork is great. Now if we could just get those arrows to point at the right tiles.
