New abstract game to fall in love with: Veletas

Post by DocteurClick » 13 May 2020, 08:54

New on BGA!
Luis Bolaños Mures is a prolific game author who exercises his talent mostly on abstract games, with a simple development axis but very rich depth.

We are pleased to have one of his titles that won the award for the best combinatorial game for 2 players: Veletas.

Very simple to access, this is a title to try for all abstract game lovers, described by some as "the child of Go and Amazons"

To note, Veletas is one of Grant Fikes favorite, - game designer of Battle of Lits ( 2015, 120 000 times played on BGA) and Mammalath (12 000 times played) - who has been leading the way to make this game available on BGA.

Two different designs available and hours of reflection!

Lot of thanks to our developper, Apollo1001, for the work achieved.
Enjoy !

It is very fun, congrats to the developper. This cat and mouse game, with lots of traps, reversals of situations and tied games is really enjoyable !

I am still not sure I have really figured how to count adjacent groups when you trap a shooter though. Something that could help, I think, would be to highlight the stones which were used in the calculation when a shooter is trapped. A tutorial would really help too :)

Edit : I rewatched some games and finally got it, I did'nt pay enough attention when reading the rules I think :)
