H&C detail

This is the Deluxe Edition of Tixel, a two-player abstract game designed by Martijn Althuizen. The name comes from the playing pieces, which are basically pixels (squares) with a curved indentation on one of their edges.

The aim of the game is to be the last player able to make a legal move. Chaining moves is invaluable as this temporarily unlocks three additional move types. If a tixel that is moved becomes inactive at its end position — i.e., it's sacrificed — a player can take an extra move if he so chooses; aside from placing or moving a tixel, he can now remove a tixel from the board, activate an inactive tixel, or pivot an active tixel to reorient its hollow side.

The boards are made of 8mm thick transparent acrylic, laser cut and engraved. The pieces are the same as in the basic edition, and are made of 8 mm thick 'black and 'ice' acrylic. All versions include a 45x33x5 cm paperstock box for transportation.

There are several versions that you can purchase:

- 6x6 board, 10 pieces per player and box: 79 Eur
- 7x7 board, 14 pieces per player and box: 105 Eur
- 8x8 board, 19 pieces per player and 
box: 129 Eur
- 9x9 board, 25 pieces per player and 
box: 165 Eur
- 10x10 board, 32 pieces per player and

If you wish to purchase a version, a combination of them (so you save on pieces and boxes), or other board sizes please email me here. The price for spare components is 1,2 Eur per board square, 1 Eur per piece and 10 Eur for the box. You can also purchase Tix pieces (squared). Check also the standard edition here.
