October Highlight: Onitama Way of the Wind

Posted on: September 20, 2018

Due to a shipping delay caused my weather for the container holding Onitama: Way of the Wind, it will now be available November 14th to local game stores near you or it is available to PRE-ORDER NOW at the Arcane Wonders web shop.

“Once again, rival schools have made the treacherous journey through the mist-shrouded mountains to the shrine of Onitama. But something is different this time… their activity has attracted the attention of a Wind Spirit!”


In Onitama: Way of the Wind, an indomitable force, the wind spirit, will be interfering with the rival schools that are competing at the ancient shine of Onitama. This expansion, that requires the base game Onitama to play, creates a new layer of interaction and tactics in the game.

The wind spirit is an impassable object, neither students nor masters may move into a space occupied by it. If the wind spirit lands on a student pawn, it does not capture it, instead, it swaps places with the student! However, the wind spirit cannot land on master pieces.

We’ve been having an incredible time introducing Onitama and the new Way of the Wind expansion at conventions this year, along with our “life-sized” Onitama set! We first showed this display piece off at the Origins Game Fair, and also had it prominently on display at Gen Con.

If you’d like more information about Onitama: Way of the Wind, we will be adding videos, reviews, the rulebook, and more information at: The Onitama: Way of the Wind Game Page.

Reserve your copy of Onitama: Way of the Wind for retail launch October 31st at a local game store near you, or PRE-ORDER NOW at the Arcane Wonders web shop!
