A strategy board game for 2 players by Néstor Romeral Andrés.
Onager is an abstract game in which each player tries to reach the opponent’s back rank. Onager is named after a Roman siege engine that is a type of catapult, as the way the pieces move resembles how projectiles are hurled forward with this device.
Onager was inspired by the game Epaminondas, a masterpiece designed in 1975 by Robert Abbott, and also published by nestorgames. Onager uses simple mechanics with a classy feeling similar to those in Chinese Checkers, Halma, or Bashni.
Components: Cotton case, board, 13 'ice' white discs, 13 black discs, 3 'lakes'. The discs are made of 8mm-thick laser-cut acrylic.
