>The sub-title for Troke is "Castle Checkers".

>Abstract strategy game where players move three different kinds of pieces (tower, wall, and moat) across a board diagonally forward, straight ahead or sideways, but never backwards. .... [I]t is a race to see who can get all their pieces to [the opposite] goal line. A feature of the game is that if you merge with one or two different pieces you take one or two extra moves. You are allowed to merge (capture) with opponent'€™s pieces and thus move them away from their goal and towards your own. Making moves becomes complicated as the game progresses because capturing pieces requires that additional moves be made. If these extra moves can not be made, then the original capture move can not be made.

This re-imagining of the original 1956 game changes the simple cylinders of the into detailed models. This classic, out-of-print game is back! 3D printing is thumbing it's nose at scarcity.
