Akzidenz / Game


Akzidenz is a board game played exclusively by two opponents. The aim of the game is to guide your marble through a maze from its start to its finish, while the opponent does the same. The beginning and end points are set randomly during the setup of the game, which creates a different setting every time.
Akzidenz explores a new dimension by utilising movement and anticipative thinking, while still maintaining a small degree of unpredictability. Only by strategically moving the tiles and using the tipping motion to your advantage, can you reach your goal. And remember, the scales are easily tipped.
