Millennia before the first kings and queens graced a chess board; the Kings of the ancient Mesopotamian civilizations honed their military minds with games of strategy. Those with the sharpest intellects and keenest insight were hailed as heroes, and immortalized by epics carved in stone. It is rumored that the Epic of Gilgamesh, lauding his defeat of the beast Humbaba is actually an account of a clash between the greatest Epigo champions of that era.
Epigo is a strategy game where you plan multiple moves in advance to push your opponents’ pieces off the board. Epigo rewards players whose plans best anticipate their opponents’ tactics. Included with Epigo is the Variant Book, which provides 21 game variations – each forcing players to adapt and develop new strategies.
