This is the Deluxe Edition of Yavalath, an abstract game for 2 or 3 players that was designed by a computer program called LUDI (invented by Cameron Browne) in 2007. The goal of the game is to place four stones in a row without first making three in a row. 'LUDI' is the winner of the Gold Medal of the GECCO Humie awards! The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO) is the largest annual conference on evolutionary computation.

This gigantic edition includes a large 45x33x5 cm paperstock box, a 34 cm diameter and 8 mm thick laser-cut 'ice' acrylic board (with laser-engraved hexes), 30 black discs, 30 white discs, 30 red discs and a white bag for keeping them. The discs are made of 28 mm diameter and 6mm thick laser-cut acrylic. The set weights around 2 kilograms. You can take a look at the basic edition here.

Update: Now this set includes the Yavalath & Co book! (with 15 games that you can play with this set)
