Blade and Brush is a simple yet intellectual game of shared storytelling through the medium of haiku.
Players take on the roles of unique, self-defined characters such as wandering monks, plucky adventurers, and questing warriors. Throughout the game, as the characters journey, they encounter a series of dilemmas. Using poems to solve problems, help people, and get into trouble, the players must collaborate and compete to weave the most entertaining story. The game can be played at a family gathering with children and grandparents over cups of warm tea, or at a late night gathering of close friends with a bottle of warm sake.
