Gyges is a engrossing strategy game that will certainly get you thinking. The rules are relatively straight forward but it is by no means a simplistic game. In fact it is truly unique, innovative and very clever.
The objective is simple - to escape the maze before your opponent by moving a piece from one side of the board to the other. However, the game is full of twists and turns. The pieces can be moved by either player, but you are only able to move those closest to you, which are therefore the furthest from the end.
The distance each piece can be moved is determined by its height - one, two or three places - but by finishing the move on an occupied place the piece bounces off and continues further.
Will you manage to string together enough successive bounces to reach the end?
Contains small parts. Not suitable for children under 3 years.
