Very fun and cute little board game, I enjoyed it a lot and have played quite a few games so far.
Tip that I missed: You can access the menu by right clicking when it is your turn to roll. Took me forever to figure out all the status effects and had to go out searching for a guide or something, then I spotted there was a menu in the game already.
Sugoroku (雙六 or 双六) (literally 'double six') refers to two different forms of a Japanese board game: ban-sugoroku (盤双六, 'board-sugoroku') which is similar to western backgammon, and e-sugoroku (絵双六, 'picture-sugoroku') which is similar to western Snakes and Ladders.
So yes it is like blackgammen, seing as this is based on the board version (ban-sugoroku), aldo played with cards in this game i guess. Could be a bit of both types realy.
Sugoroku... That's Japanese Backgammon, isn't it?
