Megiddo is played on a round board consisting of six rings connected by six spokes. Each player in turn places a stone on one of the intersections in an attempt to get six pieces in a row in one of several configurations. A row of six could be either along a spoke, around a ring, or most interestingly, in a spiral from innermost to outermost rings. A win could also be achieved by capturing enough pairs of opposing pieces by bracketing them on either side.
Megiddo won the "Best new game" at the International Toy and Hobby Fair held at Olympia, London 1986
MEGIDDO GAME REDESIGNED FOR A NEW GENERATION
This challenging game of strategy was first developed by Steve Baldwin in the mid-1980's. It became very popular with players around the world.
In 2011, Steve’s son Josh decided to re-release Megiddo with an updated design and new innovative rule change. Klündt | Hosmer re-designed the look of the game for a new generation of players. A redesigned board, instruction booklet and packaging brought new energy to this timeless game, named after an ancient Hebrew city where numerous historical battles were waged.
Megiddo will be available for purchase on Amazon.com and will soon be available as an app for iPhone and Android smart phones.
We love design. And sometimes it really does feel like a game.
