This is the Deluxe Edition
of AKRON, a board game for 2 players by Cameron
is a generalization of standard connection games (such as Hex,
Unlur,...) to three dimensions. The pieces consist of balls of two
colors placed in a square grid. One player seeks to connect the top and
bottom edge by pieces of his color, while the other player seeks to
connect left and right. The twist that makes the game three dimensional
is that under certain circumstances you can place a ball on the space
supported by four balls already on the board. In a novel twist, moves
can make balls drop to change the connection on the board.
black acrylic board (8mm thick, 23 cm side), 4 side marker rods (2
white, 2 red), 32 white balls and 32 red balls (25mm diameter), 2 white
bags for keeping the balls, 45x33x5 cm paperstock box. The balls are
made of phenolic resin
(same balls as in Shibumi Samurai).
