This is a really good game. Ever since reading The Lord of the Rings and being a massive Dungeons & Dragons kid, I've longed for a game that delivered on simply going on a journey in a fantasy world. Ryuutama does exactly that. Something that isn't explicitly stated in the book (I think) but what we've discovered during play is that it's in a really fun way set against delivering "big stories". It's all about the small details, the day to day on the trail, the conversations around campfire, and not a massive goal at the end of weeks of travel. Just getting through the day when you're lost on the mountains is exciting in itself!
