KANAGAWA (Iello Games, 2 to 4 players, ages 10 and up, 45 minutes; $29.99)
One of the beauties of Asian culture is the art. Classic Asian art filled with landscapes, animals, buildings and people can be delicate, serene and exquisite. Such is the world of Master Hokusai who, in 1840, has decided to open a school of painting to teach his disciples the skills of his art. In Kanagawa, the new game from Bruno Cathala and Charles Chevallier (with artwork by Jade Mosch), players are these disciples seeking – and competing – to develop and sharpen their own skills and create artwork worthy of the master.
