About this project

 

Wu Wei Rulebook   |   Wu Wei BGG Page   |   Wu Wei Website   |   Previous Campaign

Lead your student on a journey to earn five animal cards while your master maintains your lineage marker and cultivates chi. Once you have all five animal cards and your lineage marker, you can move your student and master to the center octagon. The first player to do so has successfully passed on their martial arts lineage, and wins the game!

Meanwhile, one player represents the emperor, working to unify the empire by placing towers in the four corners of the board. As the empire expands, the emperor’s forces grow. Recruited generals give the emperor greater power and flexibility but the additional forces require vigilance and careful planning. Generals rely on the emperor or empress to create paths for them across unforgiving terrains. If the emperor places towers in the four corners before one of the other players has passed on their martial arts lineage, the emperor player wins, and only the emperor’s lineage will prevail.

 

 

Wu Wei: Journey of the Changing Path is played in a series of rounds. In each round, players take turns in clockwise order, beginning with the starting player. As the seasons change, a gathering will be triggered every winter, during which turn order is reassigned. The game continues in this way until one player wins.

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Wu Wei is one of those games that will attract passersby at a convention just because it looks so elaborate when it’s all set up. If you’re a fan of abstract strategy or if you want to see a martial arts game that isn’t about flying kicks and throwing punches but digs deeper into the philosophy, Wu Wei is certainly worth checking out. It’s perhaps not a game for everyone—you do have to have patience learning the rules and how to read the board and trackers—but I think it is rewarding for those who are, ahem, disciplined enough to master it." - Jonathan Liu, GeekDad.com

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing the board game on a schedule can be problematic as the actual manufacturing process of the board game is outside our immediate control. Delays in manufacturing, customs, or proofing can result in delays in shipping which would delay the release of the game.

Thankfully, we are working with Panda Game Manufacturing. They have a great record for quality and delivery of goods. If you get a chance, please check out their website at http://www.pandagm.com.
