What is Yokai Quest Strikes Back about?

Yokai Quest involves players leading a group of heroes facing many enemies and dangers.

A mythical Japanese creature called Yokai is the main enemy of the heroes folklore. There are many Yokai, from the evil Oni to the funny Tengu to the prankster Tanuki. There are many hidden dangers in the world of Yokai, in addition to the heroes’ enemies.

How to Play

‘Yokai Quest Strikes Back’ follows the classic format of a cooperative board game, where players must work together to defeat a common enemy. In this case, the enemy is an army of mischievous yokai (Japanese spirits) who have invaded our world. As players, we take on the roles of brave heroes, each with our own special abilities and powers. Our mission? To defeat the yokai and save humanity from their havoc.

But here’s where things get interesting – unlike most cooperative games, ‘Yokai Quest Strikes Back’ has a traitor mechanic. Yes, you heard that right. One of us might be secretly working for the yokai, trying to sabotage our team’s efforts. This adds a whole new level of strategy and suspicion into the mix, making every game unpredictable and exciting.

Who Can Play

I would highly recommend ‘Yokai Quest Strikes Back’ to anyone who enjoys cooperative games with a twist. It is suitable for both casual and experienced players, as well as families with older children. The traitor mechanic might be a bit complicated for younger kids, but it adds an extra layer of excitement for adults and older teens.

What Makes It Fun

In my opinion, the combination of teamwork, strategy, and unpredictability is what makes ‘Yokai Quest Strikes Back’ so much fun. There’s never a dull moment during gameplay as we strategize and try to figure out who the traitor might be. And let’s not forget about the beautiful artwork and captivating theme – it adds an immersive element to the game that keeps us coming back for more.
