PATHAGON is an exciting, ever-changing new strategy game of building paths. While PATHAGON is quick and easy to learn, there is a depth of strategy that will keep you on your toes. Players take turns placing their wooden game pieces on the board in an attempt to build a path from one side of the game board to the other. There is a "trapping" move that allows a player to "trap" and remove one of their opponent's game pieces from the board. The first player to complete the path wins. Sounds simple, doesn't it? The catch is that the two paths cross. Every move has an offensive and defensive consideration. PATHAGON is simple enough to be played by children, strategic enough to engage a true gamer. The rules have been drafted so that there is always a winner, no ties, stalemates, or cat's games. Handcrafted from high-quality hardwoods, PATHAGON is pretty enough to be left out on the coffee table or bookshelf to be played again and again.
