Genius Loci is a a two player game designed by Stephen Tavener and illustrated by Viole Rodrigo

Genius Loci is a two-player combinatorial game played on a hexagonal board. According to the Romans, a genius loci is the spirit of a place; in this game, the spirits allow movement between places.

Playing pieces consist of humans, belonging to the players; and spirits - neutral pieces which can neither capture nor be captured, but enable the movement of the other pieces. Each turn, the players must make at least one sacrifice to the spirits, or lose. Humans cannot move unless they are making a sacrifice.

Components: game board, cotton case, 5 spirit tokens (cardboard), 16 black humans, 16 'ice' humans. The humans are made of 8mm thick laser-cut acrylic.
