About

THE GAME

Yoz is a handcrafted collaborative adventure board game for 1 to 4 players. It's easy to learn, super fun to play and utilizes cooperative team strategy.

Gameplay takes place in the ancient land of Yoz, where a band of characters sets out on an epic journey to navigate the terrain, collect gems, and become powerful enough to capture a treasure of golden riches from the castle of Yoz.

The board is made up of individual tiles, which can be laid out in over 20 trillion combinations, so every game is completely different from the next! Every detail of the full tactile experience has been meticulously considered, right down to the custom wood-burned box it lives in.

THE CAMPAIGN

Hi, I'm Andy. I'm a designer, author and creative director. I've been making digital games for many years but have really been enjoying some time away from screens as well, playing more and more tabletop games.

I've spent countless hours designing, testing and prototyping Yoz - and sourcing high-quality materials. Now that everything is ready, your support would help the final game move into production. I've tried to keep the pledge rewards as simple and straightforward as possible.

GAMEPLAY

It is said that many years ago a wealthy cleric buried a chest full of gold coins beneath the castle of Yoz. You and your traveling party will set out on a distant and perilous journey to lay claim to the treasure ... before a cunning thief gets to it first!

Players choose one of the four characters; the knight, runner, wizard or the miner - each of which has it's own special powers. Throughout the journey, the party collaborates together to win or lose as a group.

Start by shuffling the board tiles and laying them out in a grid. There are over 20 trillion potential combinations, so every game is completely different from the next!

Each player must navigate through the land of Yoz and collect all of their gems, becoming more and more powerful.

Once you've retrieved all your gems, you can now make your way to the castle of Yoz.

Your entire party must enter the castle to capture the treasure and win the game. 

But your quest will fail if the thief gets to the treasure before you.

On the way you'll battle dragons.

You can travel on foot, pass through underground tunnels, and transport across the land as you become more powerful.

Your party can help each other by teaming up against dragons, retrieving each others gems and navigating the land of Yoz together.

Remember, together you win .. or together you lose!
