Ni-Ju (‘20’ in japanese) is a tile laying game for 2 players by Néstor Romeral Andrés. In Ni-Ju, players compete to create the pattern depicted on at least one of their tiles by surrounding that same tile with other tiles. Each player has 20 tiles and each tile has a different pattern, hence the name of the game (20). There are 70 different patterns if we include rotations.

Ni-Ju has 3 editions with the same components: 20 white tiles, 20 black tiles, 40 red counters, carrying case.

The tiles of the Deluxe Edtion are made of 8mm thick laser-cut acrylic, engraved and painted (30x30x8mm). The tiles of the standard edition are made of cardboard (40x40x2mm). The tiles of the 3D edition are 3D printed and have got protuding squares (34x34x4mm). You can see the pictures of all editions below.
