Tsuro

Thunderbox Entertainment has teamed up with Calliope Games to bring Tsuro to the app world for Android and iOS.

“It was important to me that the soul of the game wasn’t lost in Tsuro’s transition from the table to the tablet” comments Ray Wehrs, President of Calliope Games. “Of all the developers who approached us looking to turn Tsuro into an app, Thunderbox proved to be uniquely qualified to enhance the game digitally while maintaining the feel and experience of playing around the table.”

This digital port is expected to release early 2015.
