About

Kohaku is a peaceful tile-laying game in which you will be trying to build the most beautiful koi pond. Your fish will enjoy the company of curious turtles, hungry frogs, and delicate butterflies as you build a home for your precious koi. Strategically place different koi fish next to various decorative features to maximize the appeal of your pond.

Have a look at a prototype version of the deluxe acrylic tiles, which make the fish look like they're underwater! (Final version may vary a bit from the prototype)

Special thanks to the folks from Quackalope for putting together this excellent video showing how to play!

You can download a draft version of the rules here.

Kohaku also has a single player variant!

"A rival trio of Koi Keepers has claimed to be the best at koi pond construction. Prove to them that they still have much to learn."

You can download a draft version of the solo rules here.

The Deluxe version of Kohaku contains tiles made of high-quality acrylic, printed on both sides, which creates an awesome underwater appearance!

Once we meet our funding goal, you can expect a complete game with high quality components. We also have a few funding-based stretch goals lined up that will allow for upgrades to premium components.

Risks and challenges

This will be our third Kickstarter. Our first two were funded and successfully fulfilled.

Kohaku has been extensively playtested and fine-tuned. The art and graphic design are 99% complete. We have selected a reputable manufacturer, and we are prepared to ship out a high quality game at any successful funding level.

We will be providing regular updates, so you can stay informed, all the way up to the moment your copy of Kohaku hits your table. Delays can occur, but we will make sure to keep everyone in the loop, and we will quickly and decisively handle any issues that may come up.

We're ready. Let's make a splash!
