The image size limit has been raised to 1mb! Anything larger than that should be linked to. This is a HARD limit, please do not abuse it.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Yes, a board game made out of actual paper, not on your phone or computer.
Paiko is a two-player abstract strategy board game, less daunting than chess but more grit than checkers, designed to rely on intuition and tactical skill. As you play, you'll find Paiko creates an engaging tactical drama with enough clarity to let you create your own play style, and enough depth to foster a long term interest. (We think it's awesome, and others have reinforced this idea.)
It's easy to learn, free to print and play, and we think it's pretty balanced across different play styles and between pieces. Your goal is to tell us we're wrong. Find a strategy that always wins, and tell us what it is. We want you to break our game, so we can fix it, and by all means try to break it again.
We handed out some of our hand-made color versions around PAX, but the B&W version is free to print.
