Mini edition

A classic masterpiece invented by Robert Abbott in 1975.

Epaminondas is named after the Theban general who invented the phalanx, a formation he used to defeat the Spartans in 371 B.C. The term "phalanx" is used in the game to describe a connected group of two or more pieces in a straight line, either orthogonally or diagonally. Epaminondas is played on a 14 x 12 checkered board with 56 pieces in two colours. The objective is to move your pieces across the board onto your opponent's back rank, the row closest to him, by moving your phalanxes and capturing enemy pieces.

This Mini edition reduces the size of the first edition (still available) to a single pad and includes 3 colours so you can use the ones you like most. Also adds the '3 lakes' variant by the publisher.

Components: 28 green discs, 28 purple discs, 28 orange discs, board (one pad), cotton case. The discs are 1,2 cm diameter and 3 mm thick.

You might wish to purchase the gorgeous Deluxe Edition instead.
