Onitama presents the one-on-one intensity of a game of chess while being a somewhat straight forward game that anyone can enjoy. Each player uses a variety of cards that determine how you pieces can move. Obtain victory by either defeating the other player’s main pawn, also known as their Master. There is also a second way to win, by moving your Master onto the opponent’s Master’s seat. Will you use your cards wisely to seal the win?

>>GAME FEATURE<< Onitama feels a lot like Chess with a twist. Swapping out your movement patterns every turn keeps it...

In this Greek god themed game of “cat and mouse”, race your friends to the top of the famous Santorini buildings. Use the power of the gods to cast special powers to help you and annoy your foes. The first one to make it to the top of a 3-level building wins! The rules and abilities are easy to learn, making this a great game for the entire family.
