New Board Game that Combines Complexity with Accessibility
Perigon is the new strategy game that is shaping up to be a big hit this Christmas. Perigon received a huge reception when it launched in 2011 and is rapidly establishing itself as a classic abstract strategy board game.
Perigon is a two-player strategy board game which combines the complexity of Chess with the accessibility of Backgammon. The word ‘Perigon’ means a 360 degree angle. Set up the game’s unique board and you’ll see why it was chosen, as you quickly get drawn into an enthralling world of angles and edges requiring all-round foresight and tactical imagination.
Players use their pieces to wheel around and shunt past those of their opponent, gradually manoeuvring the Flag towards their opponent’s goal line. Luck plays no part – only the cunning and clever will plant the Flag on the far goal line and win.
Perigon fully incorporates all of the classic elements of strategy – concentration, decision-making, reinforcement and pattern recognition – while completely revolutionising them at the same time.
In spite of the depth of the game play Perigon is very easy to learn. What’s more, as it only has nine pieces, you can quickly set up the board and start playing almost immediately.
The unique design of our solid wooden Perigon sets is a striking combination of the classic and the contemporary. Carved from solid wood and hand-finished with a premium varnish, these beautiful sets would serve as elegant additions to any interior.
