R&R Games will be releasing three new games this week: Qin, designed by Reiner Knizia; Hey Froggy! by Anthony Rubbo; and the magnetically-driven AttrAction.
Qin (pronounced "Chin") is set in the Warring States era of Chinese history, and tasks players with creating provinces by placing domino-like tiles and adding their pagodas to groups of like-colored tiles. The first player to place all of his pagodas wins the game.
Qin includes a double-sided board with different layouts, for basic and advanced play. The game is for two to four players. The suggested retail price will be $39.95.
Qin was released at this year’s Spiel fair in Essen, Germany by Eggertspiele and Pegasus Spiele. The game received a good reception at the show.
