A board game for 2 to 4 players by Stephen Tavener. Art by Heather 'Squish' Cornelius.

Web of Flies
is an abstract strategy game played on a hexagonal web, in which each player controls a team of spiders (represented by spider-shaped pieces with 1 to 8 legs each). There are also some neutral flies scattered around the web.

Each turn, a player must make a capture by moving one of their spiders onto an enemy piece (or a fly). Spiders can move over friendly spiders and empty spaces; however, they may not pass over enemy spiders. The game ends when only player has 8-legged spiders remaining, or neither player can move, at which point the player with most 8-legged spiders remaining is the winner; in the rare case of a tie, you look at the 7-legged spiders, and so on down.


Base game (2 players): Board, 16 red foam spiders, 16 green foam spiders, 5 foam flies and carrying case.

Expansion (3-4 players): 8 orange foam spiders, 8 yellow foam spiders, 8 foam flies and 5 large foam dewdrops. You can see the components in the picture below (bottom-right).

Update: If you prefer laser-cut acrylic spiders please contact me. The price for the base game with acrylic spiders is 32 € (plus 18 € for the expansion).
