The future. Slowly but steadily, the Moon has been approaching the Earth, touched the surface and ripped a deep rift across continents, mountain ranges and oceans, until it came to a halt in the now dried-out Pacific Ocean. Chaos and devastation wrecked the Earth and its inhabitants – and grew even more in dimension when the Moon revealed itself to be a “kami”, a Japanese God of old: the white dragon TSUKUYUMI. Exiled into the night sky eons ago, TSUKUYUMI has been roused by Japanese warriors, who tried to rid themselves off their godly creators. TSUKUYUMI’S time for revenge has finally come! Now, in the post-apocalyptic world, humankind is on the verge of extinction, whereas animal species mutated under the influence of TSUKUYUMI and grew bigger and stronger than ever. All those different factions are now fighting fiercely for survival, as well as for world domination.
Tsukuyumi – Full Moon Down is a boardgame without any elements of luck or chance, that demands specific strategic skills of its 3-5 players.
The modular battlefield represents the dried out ground of the former Pacific Ocean: Up to 40 hexagonal area tiles circle the moon panels, providing score points, blockades and contaminations. The goal is to gather as many score points as possible, through conquering and occupying areas – thus becoming the most dominant species on the board. Tsukuyumi – Full Moon Down’s particular appeal lies in the clash of diverse, asymmetrical factions. At the beginning, each player picks a faction. Each faction comes with their own respective abilities, units and strategies. The game therefore changes depending on which factions meet on the battlefield.
