Hello all, there was a game on Kickstarter awhile back that i saw and can't remember the name of. It was a small pocket sized tile-laying game with black and red x's and o's. You had to capture the most space in the grid by placing bases and flags. Does anyone know which one I am referring to? Thanks.

Sauron was not of mortal flesh, he could never again appear fair to the eyes of Men, yet his spirit arose & returned to Mordor. There he dwelt, dark & silent, until he wrought a new guise, an image of malice & hatred made visible; the Eye of Sauron.

One moment only it stared out as from some great window immeasurably high there stabbed a flame of red, the flicker of a piercing Eye. The Eye was not turned on them, it gazed north but Frodo at that dreadful glimpse fell as one stricken mortally.

Thank you so much. I wrote it down wrong and all I kept getting was random Japanese sites.

I just wanted to chime in that I backed that game, and have played it at least a couple of dozen times since I got my copy. It's really good, and oh so portable. Before I played it I was pretty skeptical, but it hits a sweet spot for me of "actual think-y abstract strategy game, but super short filler-length game". (I think there are very few that do that combo well.) That said, every time I've pulled it out, we end up playing 2 or 3 games, because whoever I'm introducing it to says something like: "Okay, that was interesting/cool/fun, let's do it again!".

Highly recommended.
