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.

Learn more about the game on Wikipedia. See how to play it as explained by James Ernest. Here are the rules on his Cheapass Games web site.

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.
