More than Felicitous

9 of 10 Points

Like no other Game

9 of 10 Points

a felicitous game for two players with a completely new moving technique
its own dynamics

Most certainly, Samsara is a game that you will pick from the shelf repeatedly

One of the funnest aspects of the game is balancing
Samsara is too cool!

The game board sits on a high table covered by a black cloth. The two intensively contemplate the playing field.

Suspenseful and Facetted

The rules are easy to understand
a suspenseful and facetted game
Samsara, a dice game? Yes, as well. But Samsara is rather based on the tactical and clever change of tracks.

For the whole Family

that you actually reflect more than initially assumed.
occasional players and families will also enjoy the game – the demands of the classic combination grandparents–grandchildren are met as well.
