Six Making is a two-player abstract strategy game in which players challenge each other in building chess figures. In this game, checkmating the opponent doesn't make you a winner; instead win by building a king.
That is, each player alternates turns, either placing one of their own pieces on the board as a pawn, or moving any of the pieces on the board. Captured pieces result in higher stacks, which move like different chess pieces. Even parts of stacks can be moved as their corresponding chess piece. The first player to create a stack of six or more pieces — with their own color on top — wins the game.
The twist is that each tower moves like a different chess piece, based on the number of disks in that tower.
This captivating new abstract strategy game is easy to learn, but full of subtle complexity. It will challenge and engage newcomers and chess masters alike.
Type: Problem solving, strategy, focus and attention for two players.
Goal: To be the first to build a King.
Difficulty: requires two players. The rules are similar to chess, but Six Making is a twist on that classic game!
