Inspired by timeless masterpieces of the Abstract Game World, using mechanics that have existed for centuries, Stymie is a game of tactical combinations and deep strategy. Each turn a player may introduce a new piece onto the board, or move a piece already in play. The goal is to occupy 7 Prime Spaces or to make 7 captures. The rules are simple, but the possibilities are vast.

  1. Gabriele

    A nice abstract game with few rules and very good depth.
    Tournament rules that make the games even more compelling.

  2. Amy

    This game is so fun to play. The more you play it, the more possibilities you see for how to create moves and strategies. I would highly recommend this game for anyone that likes strategic/tactical games.

  3. Valerio

    I really appreciated Stymie, which I consider a little gem thanks to being both familiar and original at the same time, with fitting mechanics to make the game strategic and deep enough and full of possibilities also thanks to two different ways to victory, with simple rules easy to learn but hard to master, as expected from any good abstract and also with tournament rules that make it even more competitive. Given its chess-like nature, I recommend the game to those looking for a healthy quick brain challenge for 2 players made of moves and counter-moves with that well-chosen mix that makes you want to play a game again.

    Awesome game!!! Simple but very intricate concept. The nuance and excitement has exceeded my expectations. Tons of possibilities and a lot of fun!

  5. Jim V.

    Amazing quality and design! Totally worth it. Highly recommend
    for any abstract strategy game fans or players who want to get

    Stymie has been so much fun. My son is a fan of chess and he got sucked into this quickly and loves it. It’s a great way to spend time together.

    This game is amazing!! Easy to learn but difficult to master. You play on a razor’s edge between victory and loss. My favorite game ever.
