Product Description:

Geometry meets Chess meets Math; that's the best way to describe this intense strategy game. Each player begins with 10 geometric shapes, such as Cubes, Cones, Pyramids, etc. These pieces all have three traits associated with them: Volume, Area, and Flat Surfaces. These are ranked in order from "most" to "least"; higher-ranked pieces capture lower-ranked pieces. So, while Squares may have the largest volume for their size, Cones have the largest area, and the Dodecahedron has the most flat surfaces. But the trait used to determine "piece strength" changes over the course of the game; for example, if the strength changes from Area to Flat surfaces, a Cone will drop from Rank 1 (most powerful) to Rank 8 (least powerful) in the blink of an eye! Players also receive two "special" shapes: the Sphere and the Helix. The Helix trumps all other pieces, while the Sphere is trumped by all other pieces. Piece by piece, players move one or two spaces across the board capturing and avoiding other players' pieces until their (defenseless!) sphere reaches the center of the board. The first person to do so wins the game. While the primary focus of this game is strategy, players will pick up a quick-reference knowledge of shapes & geometry along the way. For 2-4 players; 45 minutes.

Publisher Description:

Protect your Sphere from aggressive Tetrahedrons and hunting Cones on your way to the Bullseye. Can you, or should you, challenge your opponent's Pyramid with your Cylinder? Is attack always the best defense when facing a solitary Prism? Will your strategy bring you victory even if the board's conditions suddenly change?

Geometry Strategy is the strategic board game for the bold and tactic players. Even the element of chance is strategy here.

Each player has 9 pieces to help the Sphere to the Bullseye; and to stop the opponents from getting there. Take out your opponents' pieces and support your own; every move counts and as long as you have your Sphere you can still win the game.
