  • Simple rules, quick rounds and rather subtle tactics: Pylos is one of the strangest yet most beautiful abstract games on the market today, and winner of several “Game of the Year” awards around the world. The object is to save your marbles so that you can be the one to place a marble at the very top of the pyramid. Pylos is irresistibly attractive as both a game and a decorative object.

  • A pure abstraction.

    On your turn, you will place a piece on an empty space of the board, respecting one single rule: You are not allowed to place a shape in a row, column, or region in which your opponent has a piece of the same shape. The first player to place the fourth different shape in a row, column, or region wins the game. With Quantik, a single rule is enough to challenge your logic and tactics.

  • Each of the 16 pieces has 4 different attributes. The aim is to line up 4 pieces which share the same attribute. The problem is you can’t choose which piece you’re going to play your opponent chooses for you.

  • Help your pet be the first to reach its treat! Place bushy barriers to slow your opponents and your best to avoid being blocked!

     

    It’s all-you-can-eat carrots for our bunny friend, and there is milk a-waiting for the cute kitty… all they have to do is cross to the other side of the field to binge on it. Oh no! Bushes appear and block their way, and now they have to be smart and find the shortest path to their food! On their turn, players make one of two choices: they can either move their animal character, or cleverly place a bush to slow down the other. Who will get out of the maze first?

     

    This is a basic abstract strategy game that can help teach your children more complex games by starting with an easier board and theme.

  • The latest addition to Gigamic’s modern classics of abstract strategy. Move four of your five pieces across the board and back to start. Be careful; blocking your opponent can not only get your piece sent back to the side it started from, but potentially give your opponent bonus movement as well!
