A two-player strategic game designed by Néstor Romeral Andrés and José Manuel Astilleros García-Monge.
Abstrakto is a game of territorial occupation in which players try to claim territory on the board by closing off empty areas with three different types of tiles (“Solid”, “Line”, and “Cross”) according to simple placement rules. A closed area is conquered by the player with most tiles surrounding it.
• A 7 × 7 square board
• 18 blue tiles (6 of each type)
• 18 orange tiles (6 of each type)
• 25 scoring markers (10 blue and 10 orange and 5 grey)
“Solid” tiles can only be placed inside the board cells.
“Line” tiles can only be placed centered on the edges of the board cells, including the edge of the board.
“Cross” tiles can only be placed on the lines’ intersections, excluding the edge and the corner of the board (in those places, the tile’s lines would extend beyond the underlying gridlines of the cell borders).
