About

A Whole New Abstract Strategy Board Game 

Based on the Element of Countless Possibilities - Triangles

AMBUSH, like any other classic board games, is designed based on primitive objects. AMBUSH is based on triangles and pyramids - respectively the primitive elements of 2D planes & 3D shapes. Primitive game pieces have been the fundamental of classic board games like Go Game & Checkers because they are the element of countless possibilities.


Surround Your Opponent on All 3 Sides to Colonise!

The core object of AMBUSH is to colonise as many of your opponent's triangular pieces as possible.

You have to surround an opponent's piece with 3 pieces of your own to colonise.

Build a pyramid of your color on the opponent piece to signify your colony.   

Who' s the King of Colonization on the Final Move?

The game ends when one of both players cannot make any valid move on his/her turn.

The one who has built the most pyramids wins the game!


A Whole New Horizon of Strategic & Logical Challenge

Underneath the seemingly simple & primitive geometries, there lies a whole new horizon of strategic & logical challenge awaiting your exploration & mastering!  

Is it wise to start occupying from the midland or from the borderland?


Stay close to your opponent or keep your distance until chances come?

Take a classic proactive move? 

Or set traps until your opponent has no option but to fall victim to your traps?

Like an Uncharted Territory Awaiting Your Exploration 

 We have already finished the design and prototyping of AMBUSH. All we need now is the funding required to make the tooling required to mass produce the game pieces and game board. 

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge in bringing AMBUSH to life is the cost required for tooling. Due to the number of game pieces required for each set (over 100 pieces), we need to make the pieces by moulding to justify the cost. If the project is successfully funded, we will immediately start the tooling. The time required for tooling is the biggest potential impact on the delivery date (tentatively Nov 2019). Since the photos presented are prototypes, there's will be variation on item colors and detailed structures including the game board and game pieces.
