Have you heard of  the King’s Valley board game? It is a strategic race game for two players invented in 2006 by LOGY GAMES creator Mitsuo Yamamoto. The objective of the game is to be the first to get your King piece onto the central King’s Valley space. The simplicity of the game stems from the fact that the movement of all the pieces is the same. All pieces move horizontally or vertically or diagonally. When a piece is moved it must continue its movement until, and only until, it reaches a vacant square adjacent to (alongside) either the edge of the board or another piece. Stopping in the middle of a “slide,” as is done in chess, is not allowed. King's Valley is simple but strategic and is enjoyable for everyone from children to seniors.

We have been running a World Ranking for two years in Spain (Basque Country) and Japan. Now everyone can join in on the fun.

Risks and challenges

We are running King’s Valley World Ranking as a voluntary service. We can’t guarantee fair and correct Ranking registration if the number of members becomes too great. All your help is welcome.

All rewards are shipped by Japan Post’s “international E-packet” which is registered as air small packet. You may receive tracking information from Japan Post. The $6 paper board reward is shipped by ordinary air mail. Backers will not receive tracking information for this reward.

VAT & Tariff
We provide our games by international shipping from Japan, your country may impose VAT and import tariff on the products according to its own policy. Since we are not up to date with the information about VAT/tariff policy of each country, it is recommended that each backer check with their country's policies beforehand. (Usually it is not imposed when the total price is below a certain threshold.) The typical procedure is that the backer pays these fees to the delivery company personnel when receiving the product.
