Philosophia: Floating World is a fully simultaneous, stand-alone, deckbuilding board game, inspired by the artwork and ideas of Edo Japan for 1 to 6 players. Floating World is built by board gamers for board gamers.

In this stand-alone game you will play as one of six unique characters from feudal Japan. Each has an individual power, a mysterious secret and an intricate miniature. Explore this fascinating, beautiful era, build majestic pagodas and Shinto shrines, learn ancient eastern wisdom or fight fearsome monsters. This is a sandbox game, how you play is up to you!

Floating World plays over three phases which continues until one player has gained a victory condition. All phases occur simultaneously so there is no downtime and no upkeep, it is always your turn!

The game is massive, containing over 230 tarot-sized cards, 12 intricate miniatures, hundreds of tokens and is filled with beautiful Ukiyo-e style Japanese art, all digitally remastered to regain the original vibrance of the era.

Philosophia: Floating World fuses innovative game mechanics closely to its theme to create a satisfying and streamlined experience. Using a unique fusion of deckbuilding, ‘I cut you choose’ and simultaneous play, this game is designed to be endlessly replayable. With 7 different game endings, 36 unique character abilities, asymmetric play and an adjustable level of difficulty in solo mode, Philosophia: Floating World has zero downtime, zero upkeep and deep player interactions, there really is something for everyone!
