Days of Wonder, the publishers of extremely popular games like Ticket to Ride and Small World, announced their newest game, Yamatai.

Players will be competing to win the favor of Queen Himiko by building the best capital city of Yamatai. You’ll need to use resources from fleets that travel through the kingdom, recruit specialists, and attempt to build prestigious buildings like a high temple or a torii, all to become the best builder.
