Designer Notes: This is my design. It is my only pure abstract design released to date. We had a lot of fun playtesting this and then we played it into the ground. My wife and I spent countless hours pushing each other around in new and different ways. We developed strategies and counters. It’s not Go or Chess, but it’s not Checkers either. It’s a challenging game with many different opening strategies, and mid-game outcomes. The end game is a bit more predictable, but by then it’s a matter of who will come out on top and variety is not what I’m concerned with.
