Save your balls so you can be the one to place a ball at the very top of the pyramid and win! Winner of several Game of the Year awards around the world, Pylos is a beautiful abstract game.
Invented by David G. Royffe in 1964 using his family’s snooker balls, Royffe took his idea to the 1994 ESSEN game fair in Germany. At that time, the game was called Elevation, but changed to the name Pyraos when it was published by Gigamic. Later it was changed again to Pylos.
Each player starts with fifteen balls, either light or dark, and they take turns placing them on a game board that has sixteen indentations on a 4x4 grid. Once four balls have been placed next to one another in a square, a ball can be placed on top of them. This continues until the fourth level of the pyramid is reached and the last ball placed.
The rules include a variant for children and one for experts so this game is fun for a range of ages.
