ZÈRTZ is a fast, dynamic game
for 2 players. It is played with 5 white, 7 grey and 9 black marbles
on a board that gets smaller and smaller. The aim is to capture
either 3 white, 4 grey or 5 black marbles, or 2 marbles of each
color. To capture you must jump with a marble over another marble.
Sounds easy? Not when you know that both players play with the same
marbles. And because the board that gets smaller with every move,
you and your opponent are forced towards a tense situation in which
any move could be the crucial one… So, be careful: if you create
a trap for your opponent at the wrong moment, you may well face
the consequences yourself!
Some of the words about ZÈRTZ
King in GAMES MAGAZINE (USA)
Our best abstract strategy game of the year affords exceptional
opportunities for strategic exploration and discovery.
Mitch Tomashow in THE GAMES JOURNAL (USA)
It's short, original, elegant and deep, and worthy of the attention
of anyone who is interested in abstract games.
Stephen Tavener in GAMES GAMES GAMES (GB)
This seemingly simple game offers lots of depth, and really feels
like nothing else on the market.
Andreas Keirat in SPIELPHASE (D)
Zertz ist ein hervorragendes abstraktes Spiel für 2 Personen.
Jason Stone in the BOARDGAMEGEEK (USA)
ZÈRTZ has a level of excitement that is normally lacking in abstract
strategy games. I give it a solid 10 on a 1 to 10 scale.
