In 2018, Plan B Games created the Next Move Games brand for the purpose of designing and publishing lighter abstract strategy games. Next Move Games already has the immensely popular Azul, as well as, Reef. Now they have announced their next game, Tuki.
In Tuki, players will attempt to create inukshuk (stone landmarks created by the Inuit people) using 3D blocks. Cards depict different abstract inukshuk structures and each card has a symbol with a corresponding die face. Players will use the limited block pieces available to them to construct the inukshuk based on the die roll.
“The challenging part is the limited pieces players have to construct the inukshuk with. Players must be creative and use the three-dimensional pieces in multiple ways, such as to counterbalance other pieces or, even build on top of existing pieces. There should be no limit to your creativity and imagination, but there will always be a solution!”
Tuki appears to maintain the Next Move Games brand promise of quality tactile components. Tuki is designed for two to four players, ages 8 and up, and is expected to be released at Origins Game Fair later this year.
