The Imomushi silkworms produce the most delicate and expensive silk in the world however, they can only survive in the cold peaks of the Akaishi Mountains.
Very few people have what it takes to withstand lonesome life of a giant silkworm shepherd. It's a solitary existence requiring intense dedication and strength of character. Especially when competing with the few, but strong-minded others who's eyes are set on the most desirable feeding grounds.
There's also the ookamy to keep at bay...
Silk is an area control and worker placement systems with a unique theme, cute pieces and lovely artwork.

How to play?
Players have to move their silkworms to the optimal spaces so they can feed on the best grass available, while pushing other players' pieces into less spaces.
Players roll dice in order to determine which actions they are allowed to perform during their turn.
There are six types of actions available: breeding more silkworms, moving the shepherd or their mastiff, building fences or farms, moving the ookami monster around the board, and getting your silkworms to feed.
When silkworms feed, they generate a number of silk points, depending on the type of terrain they are standing on.
These points can be used to modify the outcome of a dice roll, keeping in mind that the player with the most silk points at the end of the game wins!
