You may be interested in the slightly imperfect Rithmomachy currently in our warehouse at a reduced price of 25.00 (incl.VAT&carriage).

A good size wooden board with vinyl playing surface. Nicely decorated with integral rear storage tray for the playing pieces.

The playing pieces are roughly decorated giving them a rustic, authentic feel and design.

Rithmomachy is a rather unusual, highly complex mathematical board game. Of European origin, the earliest known reference to the game from the eleventh century. The game is sometimes known as the Philosopher's game, with the literal translation being "The Battle of the Numbers". The game is much like chess, except most methods of capture depend on the numbers inscribed on each piece.

This game is hand made by a small artisan craftshop in Spain. Each game is very slightly different - the pieces are not always uniform and and the wood has a colour-washed finish that is designed to give it a vintage look. This is not to everyone's taste so please do scrutinise the pictures before ordering.

Approx. Dimensions:

42 x 30.5 x 4.5cm
16.5x12x1.8 inch
