Shifting strategies in a timeless realm

Obelus is a light-weight, 2-player abstract strategy game, playable in 10-15 minutes. Taking on the role of a powerful Mensor, you will summon obelisk shaped dice onto conflux cards, shift your obelisks according to the number showing, and banish your opponent’s obelisks. Through clever maneuvering, banished obelisks may be reformed, creating a rift that prevents further summoning on that conflux. You win when your opponent cannot legally summon or shift an obelisk!

There are two ways to play Obelus: Pure mode or Chaos mode. Chaos mode involves some dice rolling, adding an element of randomness to the
game, whereas Pure mode offers “perfect information” with no randomness.
