Yedo Deluxe Master set is a Kickstarter Limited project. This means that it will see very limited sales outside of Kickstarter. The English version of Yedo Deluxe Master set will never enter regular distribution, and (outside of Kickstarter) will only be available from retailers that pledge for copies during the campaign.

Yedo is a thematic worker placement game, where competing clans try to become the most influential in the 16th century capital of Japan. The core of the game are varied missions which all clans will try to succeed at to earn money and influence. Once a set number of rounds is over, the game ends and the Clan with the most Prestige wins!

Would you like to see a tutorial and runthrough video of Yedo Deluxe Master Set being played? We've got you covered!

Here is a longer, in-depth version: Yedo Deluxe Master Set 4 player playthorugh by Heavy Cardboard.

And here is a more concise video tutorial: a 40 minute tutorial for Yedo Deluxe Master Set from Jon Gets Games:

Originally published in 2012, Yedo has earned its rightful place in the hearts and on the tables of strategy and thematic gamers around the world. With already a great game on our hands, we decided to update the components to modern standards, add extra polish based on seven years of community feedback and complete the game with extra content straight from the original designers.

Play the way you want! Yedo Deluxe Master Set allows you to create an experience best suited to your play style and the tastes of your gaming group every time you play! Here is how you can customize each game:



Yedo Deluxe Master Set comes with two expansions. You can either add one or both to every game you play:

 This Module grants your Disciples unique powers. Like the Ninja, who is never arrested by the Watch Patrol (he is a ninja – duh!) or the Samurai who – when committed to a Mission – will grant you more Prestige, all new Disciples you acquire during the game will come with their own special ability.


This Module grants you a third option when you perform an action with a Disciple. Instead of activating a District or a Mission card, you may select a face-up Character card from the Teahouse, to join you and grant you their special ability for your next turn. The Teahouse guests change every turn, thus creating a tableau of transient special abilities to strategically use in your game.



 For retailer and group offers, please message us directly for details!

Please note that pledges below $10 will not guarantee access to Pledge Manager after the campaign is over. Only existing pledges will allow you to enjoy the benefits of actual Yedo Deluxe Master Set backers.


In order to pledge for any Add-Ons, simply add the total amount for all extra content to your pledge: we will ask you for exact information on Add-Ons chosen via the Pledge Manager. There are no extra shipping costs for any Add-Ons. Each Add-On may only be purchased once.

Yedo First Edition rules explanation by Connect More.

Yedo Deluxe Master Set will be a second large deluxe box (after Snowdonia Deluxe Master Set) and it will be manufactured by the same factory which produced the iconic printed wooden components of Snowdonia.

Shipping costs will be added after the Kickstarter project is finished, using a pledge manager. Before backing this campaign, please make sure that your region or country is present in the pledge level’s shipping list, as Yedo Deluxe Master set does not ship anywhere in the world*. Here is a list of estimated shipping costs to different regions of the world:

* Because local postal services are unreliable and/or custom taxes are off the charts, we are currently unable to ship to: Brazil, Libya, Syria, Philippines, North Korea and... Antarctica.

** USA shipping cost will depend on tariffs valid at the date of shipping. At the moment the tariff for board games is zero, but it is due to grow to 15%, although this is not yet confirmed. Every 10% in customs taxes will most likely increase shipping charges to USA by $2.

*** Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore.

For most regions of the world, Yedo Deluxe Master Set will arrive in June or July 2020. However, there are some locations with exceptionally long shipping times. So, if you are located in South America or Central America, you will probably wait for your copy of Yedo Deluxe Master Set until August or September 2020.

Please read carefully before pledging for this project!

Content Presented

While all elements shown on this page are depictions of near-final product, they are not finalized. All of the 3D elements and pieces are conceptual visualizations and representations of game elements. Some or all of the content may not be shown to exact scale. The content depicted is subject to changes before delivery in order to meet manufacturing requirements and game balance.

The Pledge Manager

We will be using a pledge manager after the campaign. Access to the Yedo Deluxe Master Set pledge manager will be granted based on having pledged $10 or more for this project. By pledging for this campaign, you agree to provide us the information needed for us to fulfill your pledge (including an address valid at the time of delivery) using the pledge manager within the time frame (of no less than 21 consecutive days) made public by us via updates on the project page. Failure to comply with these requirements within the time established will result in forfeiture of your pledge, with any refunds being solely the discretion of Board & Dice.

Risks and challenges

NSKN Games and Board & Dice – two publishers merged into one company under the Board & Dice banner in November 2018 – were brought together by a shared passion for making and playing tabletop games. Together, we have over three decades of experience in playing and making quality board games.

With nineteen total successful Kickstarter projects to the New Board and Dice name, we are making use of our experiences to constantly improve our process, while decreasing any potential risks. While Yedo Deluxe Master Set is a project of great scale and scope, we have faced a similar challenge with Snowdonia Deluxe Master Set, with the quality of the project and the final product earning acclaim from gamers around the world.

With many great projects delivered on time (or with a minimal delay), and experiences both with games and premium accessories (Paladin Protector deluxe sleeve line) we are more than equipped to handle production and timely delivery of the game.

We will be working with tried and true partners, whose procedures and production cycles we know intimately. Our current partnerships include fulfillment companies in the Europe, North America and Asia.

However, in the unlikely event of anything going wrong, we have contingencies in place, as well as some spare time to deal with unexpected events. Still, an absolute worst case scenario may add a total of 30 to 60 days to delivery.

MISSING/DAMAGED ITEMS

We are producing, packing and shipping large quantities of games, so there is always a chance of human error or damaging some game components. In any such case, please check our customer support on www.boardanddice.com, and we will try to resolve the matter swiftly, and to your satisfaction.
