EXOTIC WOOD GAME SETS
About This Game
It is a two-player abstract strategy game dreamed up by Pat Rothfuss in "The Wise Man's Fear" and made reality by James Ernest. Players attempt to make a road of their pieces connecting two opposite sides of the board.
About These Game Sets
They were actually born from a request for custom work. It was not something in our repertoire; but, it was different and intriguing. Too much planning and setup do to just one.....so I did a limited run of eight to keep unit cost down.
THESE SETS ARE A LIMITED EDITION. ONCE THEY ARE SOLD, THAT'S IT!
Five dollars of each purchase will be donated to James Ernest at Cheapass Games.
The boards are made from solid domestic and exotic hardwoods. The 10" x 10" centre is 3/8" thick Curly Maple, bordered by 1/2" wide accent wood. The grid is made from inlays of 1/8" wide accent wood. That makes the basic 5 x 5 game board. The board is made a hybrid 6 x 6 by inserting wood dowels at each intersection.
The bottom edges of the board are concaved to give a floating effect, and to provide a discrete finger lift. The overall look is both elegant and thin.
A complete set of 'stones' and 'capstones' made from domestic and exotic hardwoods is inlcuded.
