Episode 367: The One Hundred Torii
Release Date: March 8, 2021
Running Time: 32 min.
The One Hundred Torii is a game that values journey over destination.
Players create a beautiful Japanese garden together by laying tiles, making their way through Torii gates, beautiful red arches - each one an invitation to enter a sacred space.
Step into a peaceful realm of flowers, fountains, and shrines. You may even encounter a poet, a vendor, perhaps even a wandering samurai.
Each path you make is a chance to collect memories - the sights and sounds, the landmarks and people you encounter along the way.
Observe, create, accomplish. The One Hundred Torii offers us a chance to see that our movements have meaning beyond the everyday - an experience that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Tune in explore the game and discover why it earns our Spiel of Approval.
